Thamesmead Life Drawing

Welcome to Thamesmead Life Drawing

Information about who is modelling for us will be in our Blog/Model info section below. Just click on the date that you’re interested in and follow the booking link.

Based in the Lakeside Centre and Artist Studios, Thamesmead Life Drawing was brings life drawing to residents of SE2 and SE28 and the surrounding areas in Bexley and Greenwich.

Suitable for artists and beginners aged 17 and above, the sessions bring professional and experienced life-models from all over Greater London to Thamesmead to pose nude for the participants

We’re currently running a hybrid version of life drawing with both in-person and online artists drawing the same model. It’s a little unusual, but the past 18 months have got us used to the unusual.

Set up by actor and artist Jamie Zubairi to bring this creative activity to Thamesmead rather than travelling into central London to better his drawing practise.

The Sessions

The sessions are untutored though Jamie is on hand for guidance should anyone feel the need to learn a new way of looking and interpreting onto paper. Jamie guides the model into timed poses of differing lengths.

You are encouraged to bring your own media to work in (whether it is inks or iPads!) but basic drawing equipment is supplied free. Drawing boards, paper, pencils, charcoal and erasers. Also cups of tea and biscuits!
