Our first evening life drawing class, established nearly 30 years ago continues to run twice a week from the same Porthmeor studio with additional sessions during the busy Summer months.

Life Drawing

Life Drawing in Porthmeor Studios


Drawing from the figure is a classic, traditional skill and these tutored life drawing classes are ideal for those wanting to learn and improve, build a portfolio or for beginners who would like to just have a go.

The studio has a good range of charcoal and pencils to borrow and a small charge is made for paper in various sizes.

For Wednesday and Saturday drop-ins there is no need to book– just turn up ten minutes early.

Sunday evening sessions in August can be booked in advance. Please bring proof of booking for Sunday sessions, either on your mobile phone or a print out.

Beginners are very welcome.

£15 (£8 members)

PLEASE NOTE: No photographs or filming in the life drawing class.

We would advise that these sessions are suitable for those of 16 years of age and upwards. We put these guidelines in place for the safety, comfort and enjoyment of all our students.

Wednesday evening


Working with short poses from the nude life model Wednesday evening life drawing sessions in Porthmeor Studios are led by the highly experienced artist Steve Dove. Every Wednesday 7.30-9.30pm


 Sunday evening in August


Just for August we are running these bookable life drawing sessions. Student numbers will be limited. An artist tutor will be on hand to give you guidance and support. The approach will be led by the artist taking the session. Book a place here to secure a place or arrive on the night and see if there’s room. 7.30pm – 9.30pm. Please bring proof off booking either on your phone or a print out of your confirmation.


Saturday daytime


The Saturday life drawing classes run all day in Porthmeor Studios (10.00 – 12.30 and 1.30-4.00) you can attend either or both. These are taught by our team of specialist tutors each with a different approach and focus.
