I’ve lived in this area for nearly twenty years and I’ve only just discovered the St Albans Art Society who organise very reasonably priced life drawing sessions over the winter months. I’m so thrilled to find somewhere that’s so easy and convenient to get to. My last search had only led me to much more expensive and inconvenient classes that provided tuition, when really I only wanted access to a model and to go my own sweet way without being directed. So next time you want to find a life class, try Googling ‘(your area) art group’ rather than ‘life drawing class’. The model was very good – great, interesting face and she kept her position and returned to it perfectly. I was so pleased that my friend Jenny joined me (after a gap of twenty or so years), though looking at her beautiful drawings, you'd think she’d been coming to these classes for years and years.
