Our workshops aim to re-invent the common perception of life drawing as a traditional subject. Although the life model/s remain the focus of the workshop- the aim is not to concentrate on ‘life drawing’ in the traditional sense, but approach themes and ideas using the life model/s as a common subject.
Lighting, props, sound, materials, elements of performance and site specific architecture are utilised to create a visual experience from which participants can draw. This more theatrical approach is combined with relevant creative use of unconventional drawing materials and techniques.
The workshops are completely accessible- working on the premise that no skills or drawing experience are needed to make strong and exciting work. This approach has proved genuinely stimulating and poses a challenge for all levels of ability from beginners to professional artists.

London Drawing organised Creative Life Drawing workshops with The Royal Institute Of British Architects in a variety of venues of architectural significance across London from 2009-2013. Read what they had to say about it.
We also worked with Tate Modern from 2006-2011 to present contemporary, ground breaking Creative Life Drawing workshops in the galleries, temporary displays and architectural spaces of the building.
