Independent life drawing is just that – we provide the studio, the model and the easel so you can book sessions when it suits you to practice your life drawing in a supportive environment.

Although this is a weekly pay-as-you-go class, booking in advance is strongly advised as it can sell out most weeks.

Please note only newsprint is provided – you must bring all your own drawing materials, papers etc.

There is no formal tutor, but with support and ideas from other group members you will pick up new skills and techniques, through quick sketches and longer poses. These sessions are perfect for beginners, intermediates and those looking to get more drawing in their lives.

Jeremy Webster, Deputy Director of Attenborough Arts Centre usually attends the sessions. He has practised art for 30 years and his passion for drawing is only matched by his warm and friendly teaching style.

Participants must be aged 18+.

We aim to make all our sessions as accessible as possible and carers/PAs are very welcome – just remember to book their free place when you book your session. If you'd like to talk to us in advance of booking or attending your sessions to discuss your access needs, our Box Office team is here to help! Email, pop in or call 0116 252 2455, open 7 days a week.

We have four blue badge parking spaces outside Attenborough Arts Centre, plus double yellow line roadside parking very close to the building for blue badge holders for up to three hours if our parking spaces are occupied.

Free parking for all customers is available after 5pm on weekdays and all day at weekends in the University of Leicester car park next door to Attenborough Arts Centre on Lancaster Road. The closest public car park is Victoria Park.

Please ensure that you agree to our updated Terms & Conditions before booking as courses/workshops are non-refundable in some circumstances.
