The Dulwich Art Group.
The Dulwich Art Group organises life drawing and painting sessions which are open to people of all abilities. We tend not to call them Art Classes as with no formal tutor, artists are free to pursue their own approach to painting or drawing. However if a student wishes to have guidance or direction there are plenty of members who will offer advice, some of whom are lifelong art educators. Looking over the shoulder of someone who appears to know what they are doing can often be as much education as is required.
A pose is usually set for a period of three weeks, each weekly session runs for three hours which can feel quite long if you’re not used to it but it does give you a chance to make some headway, try a number of approaches or depict the model from a number of positions by moving around the room.
There is a break in the middle for tea, coffee and biscuits for which no charge is made.
Each session is paid for on the day allowing flexibility, you don’t have to commit to a whole term for example. In fact we run throughout the year and stay open through the holidays too.
The club is run by artists for artists and at £10 it is very good value compared to council run courses. The open structure is also a point of difference that many people find appealing.
The timing of the group allows those with school age children to attend, some members slip away a few minutes early if they have to pick up at 3.30pm.
