Workshop

Artist social: life drawing in the Nunnery with Jamie Zubairi and Thamesmead Life Drawing

22 August 2024
6-9pm

Bringing together our artist community, come along to the next session in our Life Drawing in the Nunnery series.

Bringing together our artist community, come along to the next session in our Life Drawing in the Nunnery series, hosted by Thamesmead Life Drawing’s Jamie Zubairi. All levels of experience are welcome!

After settling in, Jamie will guide us through our life drawing experience for the evening – for some, a chance to start your drawing and mark making journey, for others, an opportunity to further hone your figurative drawing skills.

We’ll spend the first half of the session working through a couple of short poses to warm up your drawing muscles and explore different methods of drawing and mark making, before taking a short break to grab a drink and stretch your fingers.

After the break, we’ll spend the rest of the session working through a longer 35-minute pose where you can really focus on your technique and finesse your drawing, with time to share your creations with the rest of the group at the end (if you want to and feel comfortable doing so!).

The Gallery and Nunnery Café will remain open for around 30 minutes after the life drawing session comes to a close to give you the chance to chat and connect with the other artists attending.

All levels of experience are welcome!

What do I need to bring?

We encourage everyone to bring along your own drawing materials and paper, but we will have a limited number of extras on hand for folks who are unable to do so. A hardback sketchbook is ideal as we will only be supplying seating, but feel free to bring along your own A3 drawing boards, clipboards, or small easels too!

Doors will open at 6pm, with the life drawing session running in the Nunnery Gallery from 6.30pm til 8.30pm, followed by open socialising time. The Nunnery Café will be open from 6-9pm, selling their usual fare of delicious drinks and snacks.

This listing is supplied by one of our museum partners and is not moderated by Art Fund.
