LIFE DRAWING IN NORFOLK
Drawing the nude teaches you how to love the body
Learn how to draw
We had some lovely outdoor life drawing classes during the summer but with winter upon us it’s back to Zoom for virtual drawing lessons. See below for online details.

How Zoom life drawing works
Zoom art classes are great for individuals or small groups. My drawing and painting classes are great fun and filled with demonstrations and clear, helpful advice. My teaching is very effective at giving you the observational skills needed to get control of your drawing and express your own ideas and feelings.
You’ll need to have the Zoom app on your phone or tablet. As well as seeing and hearing my demos you’ll be able to show me your work in progress. I’ll try to offer encouraging advice! I’ll let you know how to log in and guide you through the simple features of Zoom. Before the class I'll send you a fact sheet that includes a list of art materials and the picture reference to print out and have with you for the class.
The class should last around 90 minutes and costs £15 as part of a group. If you'd like to have a one to one class that would cost £30. You can pay safely through Paypal if you wish. We can arrange a date and time that suits you. Email me via the link above and try out one of my drawing sessions.
Below are two nude drawing demos for you to enjoy. Make sure you click on the full screen icon when the video clip has loaded!

Peter the art teacher
Life drawing art classes are not just for those who wish to draw the nude. They're a great way to learn vital drawing skills. These skills are very important to enable you to draw and paint in any medium and for whatever subject matter you prefer. Drawing is about being able to look and see clearly what is in front of you and being able to put it down on your paper or canvas.
Nothing reveals poor drawing skill better than life drawing art classes. If you draw some pots and pans, or a few flowers, or even a tree, you can make quite a few mistakes and your drawing will still look pretty good. But when you draw a naked human body even very small errors can ruin the sketch. We humans know ourselves too well and soon spot any mistakes!
Learning how to draw the naked body will enable you to draw anything you wish and will improve your paintings.
