    Life Drawing
    by dot-art

    Roy Munday leads a 10 week programme of evening lessons developing your skills in life drawing, including accurate measuring, colour and drawing techniques.

    ***To avoid a booking fee and pay by card, cheque or cash, please contact dot-art Services directly on 0345 0176660***

    Tuesdays 6.45pm-9pm starting 8th May 2018 (£160 for 10 sessions)

    Suitable for both newcomers / beginners and those continuing from previous courses, as the tutor will tailor the material to individual participants.


    The course is aimed at adults of any age, both beginners and the more advanced, who want to work directly from both the nude and clothed model. Though the course is for ten weeks, it’s intended that students will want to continue for further weeks. Students will progress at their own pace in a friendly, relaxed and flexible class. The course will start with the basics of drawing the whole figure to achieve technical accuracy by learning how to measure.

    Once the student has learned the basic drawing skills, they can if they wish, through the guidance of the tutor, move on to the intermediate course and be introduced to using a medium of their choice: watercolour, acrylics etc. Students will also be encouraged to work and research in between teaching sessions, but this isn’t obligatory. At the end of the first ten weeks, it’s intended that students will have gained both competence and confidence to want to continue the class for a further ten weeks or move onto the intermediate class.

    Tutor: Roy Munday

    Roy is an experienced trainer and artist, who has been teaching life drawing for many years.

    Comments from participants in previous life drawing sessions:

    “Excellent in all respects, very well timed with introduction, rest, practice, rest, more practice…”

    “Exceeded expectations. Good atmosphere, very conducive to learning. Trainer worked us hard but I learnt a great deal about the discipline of drawing.”

    I found the tutor very informative and helpful.”

    Cancellations / Refunds

    Cancellations are permitted up to 30 days before the start of a course, and a full refund will be issued. Refunds will not be made for cancellations less than 30 days before the start of a course. If you are unable to attend due to illness, personal or professional commitments you do not have the right to a refund.

    If you wish to cancel your place on a course that has not yet started and you have a friend or colleague who can take your place we can accommodate this substitution.
