Today I spent all day in Tottenham at the Beehive Pub - where there was a life drawing class for complete beginners run by the Tottenham Art Group. It was very good, excellent tutor who gave us all one-to-one tuition as well as plenty of group tuition where he instructed us by drawing and showing us work he had done himself. The model was really professional and worked very hard.
They are going to have more of these particular all-day classes as they had to turn people away it was so popular. And they are thinking of doing a painting from life model day too - although this will be a bit more expensive due to the cost of the paints, etc.
It was £26 for the whole day which I think is excellent value for money as it included materials (paper and pencil) too, a life model and tuition. The class ran from 10.30 to 3:00 with half an hour for lunch.
We went into the main bar for lunch (although of course there's plenty of alternative food outlets in Tottenham) and we were all impressed with the pub and especially the garden. Here's the website for The Beehive Pub which is under new management.
There are also life drawing drop-in sessions run by Tottenham Art Group which are held:
1) the first Tuesday in the Month at The Beehive Pub from 7-9pm and
2) every Thursday from 7-9pm at Tottenham Chances Club, 399 High Road, N17 6PQ.
These drop-in classes are for all levels. No need to book, just drop in. You can buy materials there or bring your own. These classes cost £5.
Here's the website for Tottenham Art Group with all the details.
