Tate Modern

London Drawing organised Life Drawing events at Tate Modern from 2006 - 2011. The workshops were designed to encourage engagement, insight and understanding of the art and artists within the collection displays and temporary exhibitions at Tate Modern.

Our events used the human figure as a visual prompt through which participants can interpret the artwork in the galleries and aim to radically reinvent the traditional concept of drawing from life. We aimed to produce unique drawing workshops, which are engaging, inspiring and entirely relevant to contemporary practice.

Our Drawing Theatre workshops are a direct spin off of the ground breaking workshops we facilitated at the Tate and we regularly work with major arts institutions such as the V&A, Barbican Gallery, Battersea Arts Centre and the Design Museum to facilitate Creative Life Drawing events. 

If you are a gallery or arts institution and would like to run sessions similar to this one please email us at info@londondrawing.com  

Creative Life Drawing Evening Workshops

Cubism Workshop 2007

These workshops were a contemporary take on the traditional life drawing class using the life model as a springboard into ideas and concepts inspired by the art in the galleries and the architectural spaces of Tate Modern.


Drawing From Digital - Contemporary Life Drawing Workshop

Drawing From Digital Workshop 2008

This experimental one-day workshop presents a contemporary take on the traditional life class. The workshop incorporates hi- and low-tech digital media and performance to create an inspiring visual experience, presenting the life model in a completely new way.


Studio Tate

Studio Tate was a daytime course. Over four Saturdays we focused on technique and materials in a practical, hands-on class- combining traditional Life Drawing practices with experimental drawing ideas and mediums.
