I have been a figurative modeller for many years and had a classical training in the figure with drawing, sculpting and anatomy. Please see below for classes, workshops and casual life drawing group events.
A little bit about my experience: I've taught Art and Design and run sculpture workshops at undergraduate level. I have also over the years taught life drawing, portraiture and modelling from the figure for Art Centres, Adult Education and privately.
A little bit about my approach: I like teaching and I have a particular approach. Its based on the individual. So although I do group demonstrations or structured teaching and excercises, the development of each individual student and working with them is the most important thing to me.
How to get updates: Meet- upI have a group called SmArt ( drawing and scultping ftom the figure) on the app meet up. It's a free app and if you sign onto my group you will see all the events, get notificiations and can pay easily and securely through a paypal button.

We'll take a challenge each week: short poses with new approaches, unusual eyelines, long tonal study and capturing an emotion or a narrative.
The general format of the life drawing sessions is individual feedback and discussion with shorter to longer poses. The class is appropraite for beginners through to experienced practioners.

This is almost like a life drawing club that you can dip in and out of, run in the lovely setting of Yardley Arts. It is a small relaxed group, focusing on different things in each session and occassionally all day events. It attracts a variety of people and is good for drawing and often suitable for colour studies as we regularly do a single long pose. Each session has a different and really professional model, great lighting and an interesting pose in the in a really light spacious Studio at Yardley Arts
