Winchester Life Drawing Club are taking over the Arc to bring untutored Life Drawing into the library. 

Everyone should try life drawing at least once- book your place and experience one of the art worlds oldest art practices!

In this two hour session, Winchester Life Drawing Club will guide you through an untutored life drawing class- they will set the poses and timings whilst you are encouraged to get creative independently. The class will work from a nude model and basic materials are provided.


‘Winchester is a beautiful city. There’s plenty of character and history, but what we thought would be right to help add a bit of vibrancy, would be a life drawing club. The club adds something to Winchester that many people have wanted. Affordable life drawing is key, but taking it a step further now that we have more reach in the community, we will be adding events with costumes and have a variety of acts to draw/paint from.

As a community forward thinking business. We have started to see various ages and skillsets, come together to enjoy the practice of drawing. We try our best to chat to everyone, to learn about what you're up to"
