Life drawing

Drawing from life is not only fully absorbing, thrilling and rewarding, it is also arguably the most useful method of developing one’s observational drawing and painting skills. It’s about learning to look at the human form and record what we see in a controlled and considered way.

Life drawing classes at Insight are suitable for people of all abilities and no previous experience is required. The format of lessons change week by week, with sessions at the start of term planned around specific processes or materials, with long and short poses, then towards the end of term, lesson time is given to students to develop their own interest in painting and drawing, including the option of working from the same pose through a three week period.

Insight’s 1000 square foot studio in Whetstone is one of the largest places in London holding life drawing classes. Whether making work for a portfolio or purely for pleasure, Insight is a great place to work from the figure.

Equipment, paper, model fees and refreshments are all included in the price of the course. Students who wish to use their own equipment or surface may do so.
