Friendly Life Drawing group at The Clock House

The Merry Nude runs life drawing sessions in lovely pubs that provide helpful tuition from practicing artists within a friendly and sociable atmosphere. All materials are provided so anyone can turn up and beginners are often really impressed with what they can achieve! Life drawing is a great way to get creative, relax and lose yourself by focusing on one thing in front of you – quite a rarity in most of our busy lives. The classes are open to all abilities where beginners are encouraged and experienced artists challenged, with different models and themes each week. The sessions are every Tuesday starting 7th January, upstairs at the Clock House from 7-9pm, and are £13 on the door, £12 online or £42 for 4 sessions (though you are welcome to attend for free). More info about us can be found at www.TheMerryNude.co.uk and information for the Tuesday sessions is here.
