Creativity + Friendship
Each session offers artists different length poses encouraging members to try different approaches and techniques.
Members have the space to enjoy themselves in a supportive, relaxed and encouraging studio environment.
- Currently, as we struggle through Covid, we are holding 2 life drawing sessions per month.
- Week 1 and week 3 on a Monday evening, 6.30 – 8.30pm
Hopefully in future we will return to meeting on the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th Monday of each month, 6.30 – 8.30pm.
1st Monday: Short poses: movement, short studies up to 15 mins.
2nd Monday: Mixed-length poses; quick poses to start, varied poses 15-35 mins.
3rd Monday: Long pose; usually a single pose all evening, or 2 per session.
4th Monday: Portrait session (clothed): same pose all session, or over 2 sessions.
We do our best to offer a variety of life models, male/female of differing body types.
Passion for life drawing
Creative life drawing Manchester is a focused and dedicated group of life drawers of mixed abilities. We welcome absolute-beginners, celebrate those who’ve caught the life drawing bug and embrace those who have experience, skills and technique we can all learn from.
Enjoy a warm Manchester welcome and make the most of the inclusive, creative atmosphere where you can feel confident in trying whatever you like – draw for the first time, experiment with new techniques, and simply be your artistic self.
There is no tutor so it is essential that group members are thoughtful, supportive, encouraging and friendly towards each other.
Relax! I tend not to chase drawers out at the end of the session – stay awhile, chat, share experiences, review your work and generally chill out.
Creative life drawing Manchester is here to support individual creative growth.
