Tuesday Life Drawing Group in Keighley

30 Jul 2024

13:30 - 15:30

Keighley Creative

Would you like to try your hand at life or portrait drawing but have no idea where to start?

Are you an established artist who would love to have the opportunity to do some life drawing or draw someone’s portrait and meet other fine artists?

The Tuesday Life and Portrait Drawing Group meets weekly at Keighley Creative and may be just what you have been looking for. Informal tuition and support is available if you need it.

You pay on the day. You can pay as much as you feel you are able, depending on your circumstances and we suggest somewhere between £10 (minimum) and £15 per session. You can pay with cash or by card.

We start drawing at 13:30 and finish at 15:30pm with a short break at about 14:45 for tea and coffee, which is included in the price.

You will need to bring all your own drawing materials and paper.
Given that this is a public space the ideal materials to bring are: pencils, charcoal, oil pastels, watercolour, acrylic or gouache paints depending on your inclination for the day. Pastels, if they create dust, and oil paint are not suitable for use in this space.

At the moment there are a limited number of easels and so you may find it easiest to bring a sketch book with a solid back to it rather than loose paper. We anticipate having some easels in the near future thanks to Bradford Senior Power and the Arts Council and look forward to using these.

To book a place for this session (there will be a maximum of 10 artists per session) please contact Martin Cosgrove, Fine Artist 07 868 529 434

Please note that the life room in Keighley Creative is up lots of steps and there is no lift so you will need a pair of legs, lungs and a heart that can carry you up the steps. Once we move to the new permanent building there will be full access.

Keighley Creative is currently in the old Argos Store on Cooke Lane opposite New Look and Hays Travel and between the Airedale Centre and Farm Foods.
