This 4-week life drawing class will broaden your drawing ability by pushing your knowledge and skills that bit further.

It is designed for people who have some life drawing experience and are eager to advance their practice.

This course will delve into the more challenging aspects of drawing the human figure, like how to accurately shade a portrait, and how to draw hands. Alex will take you through fun techniques that help break these complex ideas down!
