Figure you have it in you to capture the human body in sketch? Now’s your chance. Tottenham Art Classes are running life drawing – drawing a human figure from observation of a live model – classes every Thursday evening.
You can just drop into the sessions, which cost £5, at Tottenham Chances.
Tottenham Art Classes label themselves as “an initiative for locals living in and around Tottenham to engage in a creative activity during the evenings and closer to home”.
If you are interested but feel a little unsure about your talents, they have a special session for life drawing beginners. The one-off event costs £26 and takes place on 12 July at the Beehive pub, just off the High Road.
They promise four hours to “get [you] started and guided through a sure-safe method with plenty of one-to-one tuition from a Professional Tutor … [to] cover proportion, foreshortening, measurement, line and provide clear and sound instruction throughout.
The course aims to improve your observational skills, drawing confidence and produce results.”
Painting classes are also planned soon.
Drop-in class every Thursday, 7-9pm, at Tottenham Chances (side entrance), 399 High Road, N17 6QN.
One-off beginners’ class on Saturday 12 July at Beehive pub, Stoneleigh Road, N17 9BQ. Book in advance through the Tottenham Art Classes website.
