Group drawing opportunities from Life in Monmouth, Wales

I established Lessons in Life, in 2015 

offering non intimidating opportunities to draw from life.

Available to Sixth Form groups; Adults new to drawing and

accomplished artists alike.


The intention, to build collaborative creative communities where

art practice is accessible, playful and always curious;

where self expression is encouraged and supported


We can all relate to the human form.

Although familiar, each body is unique and enormously varied.

Every glorious model and each and every pose

becomes a revelation and a challenge - 

There are no hard and fast rules to drawing the figure -

each drawing must be approached with fresh eyes,

observing the figure as if for the first time -

drawing what we see; not what we think we see.

Keep scrolling for current opportunities. Pre Booking essential.

We currently meet Monday evenings at 6.45pm for a 7pm start

in the spacious purpose built Art Department at

Haberdashers Monmouth School for Girls.


Equipped with easels, drawing boards, paper for purchase

and basic materials at the ready we have all you need for an immersive Life Drawing experience
