A Brighton Life Drawing Session run by Draw
Every Saturday we run a tutored life drawing class at our New England House Studio, taught by Hester Berry. Each of class costs £10 and stands alone as a lesson in it’s own right; the set of twelve classes can also be attended in sequence to provide a complete tutored life drawing course. Don’t fret if you’ve missed a session, when we reach the end of our twelve week cycle we begin them all over again!

The ‘Anatomy’ class focuses on how to use an understanding of anatomy to inform life drawing. The class introduces how the skeleton underpins the drawing.

Join us for a procrastination-busting one-day writing retreat in lovely Brighton town for some word-based arse-kicking to make sure you move on with your project.

This workshop is about quantity, not quality. We will be declaring war on procrastination and smashing writing blocks to smithereens.

There are few things more motivating than competition. Competition and biscuits. Set your personal word count goal for the day and compete against other writers. Games, silliness and supportive competitiveness to break you out of your writerly malaise.

Who is this for?

This workshop is perfect for people with a project in progress that has stalled or been put aside while life takes over, or those with an idea they want to make a big start on, or those who want to drink tea and eat biscuits and write some words in a fun, supportive environment.

Including:

What kind of thing is a human being? What is an object? Are there really such things as minds? What’s the point of asking such strange questions? These are the problems of ‘ontology’, the branch of philosophy that studies the nature of being.

In this short course of four weeks we will look at some of the basic problems of ontology.
