We are a friendly Life Drawing group that used to meet in Draycott, DE72 3PS (near Derby, Derbyshire) on a Wednesday evening.  However we have moved to a new night (Thursday) and joined with a vibrant group at improved premises in Long Eaton, only a couple of miles away. Details can be found here Long Eaton Life Drawing

We do not run a formal course. Our sessions are untutored so you are free to draw in peace without interruption.  We have a mix of long and short poses. Typically we start with three 5 minute poses, followed by two 25 minute poses then a 10 or 15 minute break for coffee and (chocolate!) biscuits. Finally we end the evening with a long 55 minute pose.  Easels or tables are available whichever suits you best, paper, pastels chalk and charcoal are available for your use, you are welcome to bring your own materials if you prefer.

We welcome artists of all abilities, so if you want to join in the fun we would like to hear from you.
