The organisation of the Life Drawing sessions will differ from our usual workshops as we have to cover the cost of our models as well as the rent of the room.  These sessions are not included in the winter ‘Season Ticket’ payments.

The life workshops are usually very popular and places are limited so please book and pay (£12 for both sessions) before 1st March when models must be booked.  Should you only be able to attend one of the two sessions please ring Madeleine to see if there could be a place.  Booking and payment information is in the newsletter.
