Nichola Eddery (1982) is a classically trained, a professional and exhibiting artist.  Over several years Miss Eddery has studied under many leading classical art teachers at ateliers in Italy, France, and the USA; Charles H Cecil, Florence, Studio Escalier, Paris and Loire Vallery, L' Ecole Albert Defois, Loire Valley, Ryan Wurmser, California and Israel Hershberg, JSS, Civita, Italy. During and since her studies, she has exhibited in London and internationally.  Nichola is passionate about sharing her Old Master techniques and has taught 1-1 and groups over the years. Since moving to London in 2017, Nichola has designed a variety of workshops and short courses offering her unique traditional drawing programs in three of London's most renowned museums.

Nichola Eddery Atelier workshops and short courses are small classes designed for all levels of drawing experience, including the complete beginner.  Nichola welcomes adults of all ages as well as an A-level student, to learn and draw from classical antiquity in The British Museum, sculptures in the V&A and from Old Masters paintings in The National Gallery.

Nichola's drawing classes offer a unique blend of classical training and are intended to enable her to share her knowledge of the fundamental principles involved in traditional drawing. Her classes will be modelled on 19th-century French atelier practices that were derived from the Renaissance Masters' traditions. The techniques shown in class are the backbone to representational art.

I had the most incredible drawing class with Nicola yesterday at The British Museum. Nicola teaches very traditional drawing techniques used by the old masters influenced by her modern teachings, her classes take you right back to the basics of representational drawing, they are hard but precise, and she is incredibly patient and informative. The other students in the class were great and we had such a brilliant afternoon. I feel that I learnt so much yesterday and I can not wait to book in for the next one. Thank you Nicola!

I had such a insightful morning learning the beginning skills of figurative drawing with Nichola. It was a spoiling treat to be able to learn to draw in the famous rooms of the National Gallery and by a brilliant teacher Nichola who can share her expansive knowledge of art experience and skills. I could not recommend this more and very much look forward to my next masterclass at the V&A with Nichola learning to draw from further great masters under her guidance.

Nicola taught us a number of super insightful techniques in a very fluid way. It was all very seemless! We first did a couple of exercises in a quiet part of the gallery and then moved to one of the busy galleries towards the end of the session to put what we had learned into practice. Nicola was very thoughtful and explained every clearful. Would recommend!

The workshop was an introduction to drawing using the Atelier 'envelope' method. Nichola is a really skilled artist and an engaging teacher. I am a beginner to drawing and Nichola was very patient and encouraging. The group was small, so we all had lots of one on one time with her. Highly recommended to anyone who is interested in learning this classical style of drawing. The National Gallery is of course a very inspiring venue, and the class is early enough to avoid too many crowds.
