Arnolfini - est 1961

Inspired by Chantal Joffe’s beautiful pastel work, the drawing class will give you the opportunity to draw from a nude figure who’ll be modelling in a colourful set up.

Bella will host the session on Zoom and give tips and guidance throughout.

Drawing from life a is a mindful activity that doesn’t require any previous experience, simply an open mind and interest in learning to draw through observation.
