Illustration for the Untutored Life Drawing classes at the Round Tower by Paint & Draw Atelier


The Hotwalls Studios hosts Life Drawing sessions at the Round Tower in Old Portsmouth on the first Friday of the calendar month.

Doors open at 6.15pm and drawing begins at 6.30pm to give attendees time to set up.

Each class will involve 2x 1-hour sessions, sketching from the live model with a short break in between. Poses will vary in length from 2–30 minutes. The model will be undraped, but depending on seasonal conditions (and the models comfort) the longer poses may be draped.

All skills levels are welcome. Although this will be an untutored class, Katie and Ella will be happy to give any guidance throughout the session. Basic materials, drawing boards and seating will be provided. Easels are not provided but attendees are welcome to bring their own. Paper will be available to purchase by the sheet.

Tickets are expected to go quickly, so reserve your spot early:
