About this class

This is a life drawing class but not as you’ve ever experienced it before. You'll be using your own body to inspire your drawings while also learning some some great tips for life drawing IRL. The class is all about moving your body and getting into a flow state of mind, where time both stands still and flies by. It is perfect both for beginners who are nervous about picking up a pencil and seasoned life-drawers who want a new way of looking at the human body when they get back out to their normal classes.

This was a wonderful class! At the beginning, Alice talked about the aim of the session being to experience 'flow', a state we all want to get to. And her inspired exercises really did get me there! I got an insight into a way of making art that I had not had before. She also made us all feel simultaneously relaxed and excited to have a go. Thank you, Alice - I would love to do another class with you sometime.

This was a great class with Alice - both fun and thought provoking. It made me think of drawing and how I occupy space in a completely different way and achieved some really interesting results. I would highly recommend and would easily suit everyone from a complete beginner to an experienced artist. Thanks Alice!

A very stimulating and different approach to drawing that was fun and absorbing. I learnt stuff too! Alice is a very good teacher and I would recommend anyone do this class, whether you are new to art or experienced artist.

There's Only Make is a collective of artists offering creative courses for everyone to find their flow.

We help people identify and savour the things that bring them joy. Our courses incorporate the tenets of Flow Theory, using creative tasks to experience a state of absorption, where time simultaneously flies by and stands still.

All children dance, sing and draw. Yet, at some point, many of us stopped doing these things. Perhaps we were once told that we couldn’t draw, or that we didn’t sing in tune. Perhaps we have internalised the belief that it is frivolous…

This is an amazing class! Alice is so knowledgeable and encouraging and really made us look at ourselves and think about our human form in a completely different way. Using senses other than direct sight, for eg imaginary sight, but also touch, and the sensations of feel, which included representing the sensations of stretching and bending. Truly inspirational and I left it with a new understanding of drawing and a thirst to learn more.
James - February 2nd
A very fun, friendly and refreshing evening. I was wondering how this would work virtually, but it was actually really good and a great practice to get you thinking about drawing in different ways. Open to any levels and a great way to end a pandemic weekend.
Issi - February 1st
I really enjoyed this class and found Alice a thoughtful and interesting teacher. It was great to approach life drawing from a different angle and purely focus on being present and observing my own body. It felt very mindful.

I found the class an entirely relaxing, fun and nourishing experience. Alice is engaging and informative and creates a calm environment and challenged my way of thinking when it comes to drawing. Most uplifting, thanks I will definitely be booking again!
Sue - May 3rd
Really enjoyable and fun class!! This isn't your standard life drawing class; you'll be challenged to perceive and draw the human form in new and different ways. Alice is a brilliant teacher and I'll definitely be booking for another class :)
John - April 30th
This was a great innovative class for people of all abilities to develop their drawing skills and understanding of the human form. Thanks Alice!
Thom - April 30th
I am a complete artistic amature and I really enjoyed the poses and the activities. I've always struggled with drawing and Alice's class changed how I thought about the process, and gave me some interesting new perspectives to experiment with. Great activity to do with friends as anyone from beginners to experienced artists will get a lot out of it.
Richard - April 30th
This class was amazing! Alice was an excellent teacher, guiding is expertly through the class and even helped a novice like me to draw something half decent. The hour whizzed by, and I would definitely take this class again, thank you Alice!
Emma - April 30th
This was a lovely relaxing, creative and fun class! Alice was a great teacher, very reassuring and encouraging while I tried to work out how my body works while drawing it. It was great to put my mind to work in a totally different way
Alice - April 28th
Thank you so much Alice! I learnt a lot about scale and positioning, and also had a really good stretch :-) Will definitely join in again, I really enjoyed myself!
Louise - April 28th

I found the session really liberating. I tend to get a bit irritable usually just sitting in life drawing so it was soooo nice to move around. I absolutely loved drawing the position IN the position. It totally changed how I drew. Its like I became the pencil! So cool! I loved the emphasis on feeling your weight and pressure on the floor and being invited to interpret it as abstract or literal. The skeleton proportion exercise at the start really helped too. I remembered the elements as I was working. Very nice to be working on the floor too. Alice is a really reassuring tutor. And it was loads of fun!

Alice was an incredibly friendly teacher. Her class really lifted my spirits in lockdown times. I’ve done a few life drawing classes over the years but this one was completely unique. combining yoga poses with art was a cool way to think about the figure-I really don’t think I’ve ever studied my toes in that much detail! Will definitely join Alice’s online class again.

Alice was amazing. She has taught me a new way of looking at my subjects. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and look forward to more drawing.
Charlotte - April 17th
Loved this class! A brilliant way to keep up your drawing skills during lockdown, Alice got us doing loads of different drawing exercises to think differently about perspective - particularly liked the audience participation and use of yoga poses!
