We’ll be starting the new year with a free lifedrawing event on January 7th at 6.30 at the Lakeside Centre! Open to any one 17+ years of age who has wanted to try their hand at life drawing.
The event will be free to anyone who has booked through the Eventbrite booking link.
A taster event for anyone in SE2 and SE28 and the surrounding areas who has wanted to try their hand at lifedrawing but finds that the classes in central London too far away and too expensive. This taster event is to introduce to you the basics of Life-drawing.
Drawing from life is one of the disciplines any visual artist learns to maintain their skill in seeing and interpreting the human form. Some people find that the activity is not only a new skill but a relaxing and mindful activity. Thamesmead Life Drawing was set up to encourage people – beginners and professionals, artists and non-artists – to draw and see the world in a mindful way.
The sessions are set out as 2 blocks of hour-long drawing sessions with a teabreak in between. The facilitator will be guiding the model and be on hand to give you tips and tricks to seeing and drawing.
1 model will be present to sit for us.
Light refreshments will be provided in the break between the 2 drawing sessions
All basic drawing materials will be provided but it is encouraged to bring your own sketchbooks and preferred medium. Drawing boards will be supplied. Please note easels are not supplied.
The event on 7th January is the first event that Thamesmead Life Drawing will be kicking off the new year supported by London Community Fund, Peabody, Thamesmead Now and Bow Arts.
