London Life Drawing drop-in Classes

As preparation for part 4 Drawing Figures I have compiled a list of London life drawing drop-in classes. The classes on the lit are all inexpensive and are open to all. The majority of which you don’t even have to book, just show up with your kit. Lots o them even provide drawing boards and easel. With some even stretching to paper and drawing stuff for a small fee.

I was very happy to see there are so many available. This list is a selection I felt were suitable distance wise. There are many more out there.
