London Drawing is a collaboration between professional artists, tutors and performers, led by Anne Noble-Partridge and David Price. We offer Life Drawing and Painting classes, Bespoke Classes and Corporate Workshops in life drawing, creative drawing and creative problem solving. All our workshops are hands on creative sessions, designed to be challenging, fun and informative. We work with major arts institutions, galleries and a range of central London venues to produce unique and inspiring workshops. Our sessions can be tailored to suit different levels of ability and are suitable for galleries, schools, colleges, private groups and companies.
Combining over 20 years of teaching experience and current professional practice, we aim to deliver forward thinking and inspiring classes. All our classes and workshops are bespoke, using a combination of performers, sound, lighting, props, visual effects, drawing techniques and exciting materials to create an unforgettable visual drawing experience.
London Drawing aims to re-invent life drawing and drawing in an environment suitable for all levels of ability, designed to encourage confidence and inspire.
London Drawing is supported by Cowling & Wilcox art shops
We are currently looking for venues to work with with regard to setting up regular drop in life classes. Our drop in evening classes are a great way of building new audiences and bringing people to your venue. Do you run or know of a venue which would benefit from what we can offer? More info here
