Join our series of untutored life drawing sessions with a professional life model.

Whether a newcomer or an experienced practitioner, join a friendly community of art lovers and nurture your creativity by responding to a variety of short and long poses.

Draw in the gallery space directly from a nude model and get inspired by our temporary exhibition Giorgio Morandi: Masterpieces from the Magnani-Rocca Foundation. Our informal sessions are introduced by a 10-minute talk discussing key themes of the exhibition.

We can provide drawing boards and a selection of basic drawing materials. You are more than welcome to take your kit with you. Please note: only dry materials are allowed in the gallery spaces.

If you have any accessibility needs, please contact

Facilitated by Carlo Corsato (Learning Coordinator, Estorick Collection) and Dominic Blake (Art Writer and Life Model).

Dominic models at the Royal Academy of Arts and is currently working on a book based on his popular lecture series Are Life Model Artists?
