Life Drawing – 6.30 to 9.30 NEW SESSIONS START Thursday 13th September


New sessions start Thursday 13th September.


The 3 hour session is £20.

We’re an informal, friendly, supportive group and have good fun with different projects and contributions from everybody on poses, lighting and materials. The mixture of skills range from complete beginner to practicing artist. I offer instruction to those who would like it and there are constructive group discussions about the works during the evening. The line-up of models is designed to offer a wide range of body types. The poses are structured to give opportunities to develop different approaches and skills from short to long poses.

We supply easels, drawing boards and clips There is also a basic supply of paper (A2 and A1) and pencils, erasers, charcoal that can be purchased at low prices. I do suggest however, that to develop a personal path and style and to get maximum enjoyment from the sessions you bring your own materials.

Whilst we welcome life drawers on a drop-in basis, please let me know by email in advance so I can prepare the studio.  Feel free to contact me with any queries Chrissy (07967 018 514) or


The Portico Gallery is a fascinating, idiosyncratic building at 23a Knights Hill, West Norwood, SE27 0HS. It’s just up from West Norwood station, opposite Wolfington Road. There is a shop front and to the left a set of white double doors. Through those doors on the right is an intercom to open the inner doors.

We look forward to you joining us.
