About the Class:

As part of a week-long roster of events to explore and appreciate the body, Bristol-based artist and drawing tutor Beth Kirby will lead a class exploring the relationship between perceiving, looking and drawing.

Joined by models Alice and Sally, Beth will guide you through a range of exercises designed to help you connect with what you see, and to draw feelingly. This class is about looking and experiencing the body through drawing, rather than following rigid guidelines or rules.

– The class is 90 minutes, with a short break in the middle.
– You are not required to wear a mask once seated at this event, unless you want to
– Please bring your own water/drinks as there will not be any refreshments
