LIFE DRAWING (temporarily suspended)

Tuesday evening life drawing sessions in the Project Space are suitable for beginners, the more experienced or advanced.

There is a range of excellent models, sensitive but challenging teaching, thoughtful and creative group ethos.
The studio is fully equipped and A1/A2 paper is available for purchase.

TUESDAY  6.30 pm - 9.15 pm
Fees: Three terms, 10 sessions per term, £250 per ten sessions.


Roger Jeffs has been teaching painting and drawing classes in the Project Space since 2009.
The course is suitable for beginners and for those with some experience. An introductory programme ensures a good solid grounding in the basic elements of painting and drawing from observation - seeing, understanding and manipulating colour; use of line, shape, tone and texture and the importance of good composition. Students are encouraged to gain experience and skills in a wide range of media and techniques.
For the more advanced/experienced student the class may have a "workshop" ethos, dealing with individual problems, concerns and ideas. The atmosphere in the class is serious, professional and challenging but encouraging and often fun! And there is always generous support and enthusiasm from fellow students.
There are regular talks about painting and drawing which also explore the wider context of art history and contemporary fine art practice.
The course takes place in the Project Space at Parndon Mill on Wednesdays. Starting in September there are three ten week terms. It is possible to attend either mornings, afternoons or all day.

WEDNESDAY  9.45 am - 12.45pm  
                          1.30 pm - 4.30 pm.
Fees: (10 weeks term) Half day - £250.  Full day - £450
