Ruby gave really useful tips for me to improve and I will definitely be going back! Venue was stunning (The Clock House Peckham) and there was good music playing while we were drawing ❤️

This class was fantastic! It's in the perfect location in the middle of Shoreditch, in a beautiful room above a pub. I really liked the teaching balance - if you want to get lots of tips and pointers about your sketch, the help is there for you. Or, If you want to go your own route, you are also welcome to! I would recommend to anyone looking for a fun but peaceful life drawing session.
