What is Life Drawing?

Life Drawing, or Figure Drawing is the practice of drawing
the human figure from life, typically nude.

We Are Leeds Drawing Club

We run a programme of regular Untutored Life Drawing Classes, Tutored Courses and Special Drawing events.

At Leeds Drawing Club, you can learn to draw, support your existing practice, unlock your inner artist and give creative time and space that is just for you.

We are the original untutored life drawing sessions in Leeds, running classes and workshops since 2007.

We know that drawing is good for you and are strong advocates of drawing as a positive mental health benefit.

We welcome artists, creatives, students, anyone who loves to draw and who understands the benefits of getting your sketch on, on a regular basis.

We also welcome beginners / those brand new to drawing for which we recommend our Tutored Course.

Draw With Us!

Our new home is in the Burley Hill Trading Estate.

We are Unit C3, which just behind FlexSpace. You can find us via Argie Road, or from the main car park, down the steps. (We will be updating the exact location on Google Maps very soon!).
