Life Drawing

Life Drawing sessions are held on Wednesday evenings from 7 – 9 pm at the Aberdeen Quaker Meeting Place: 98 Crown StreetAberdeen, AB11 6HJ; £4 members, £5 Non-members.

These sessions provide an opportunity for artists of all abilities to work and experiment with different media, whilst practising their life drawing skills.  The sessions are open to everyone on a drop in basis, providing a vital social platform for the local artist’s community and are becoming increasingly popular.

Occassional all day sessions are arranged during weekends, which have also been very successful, allowing a more extended approach to drawing.

An annual exhibition of these life drawings at Limousine Bull, is an excellent opportunity for the artists to experience showing their work, and to see how their practice has developed week on week.

Contact us via email,, or on our facebook page for more information. Alternatively leave a reply for our attention.

    Hi! I’ve just seen your life drawing class and although it’s probably too late to join in this evening, I was wondering if I can join next week? How much are the classes? And what materials should I bring?

    Hello, Really interested in your life drawing classes. Are they tutor taught? Also what equipment, materials do I require ? Not sure where your space is.



  5. Lynn,

    Our life drawing classes on a wednesday evening from 6 – 8pm with class co-ordinator Leon Moller, there is a small fee to cover the cost of the model. Our premises are just as you come into Torry, if you head over the Victoria bridge and take the first left and as you turn in there is an entrance for the Deemouth Business centre on you’re left head straight through and our door is red and white you can’t miss it. You will need to bring your own equipment but can use whatever you life.

    Great to see you’ve moved and up and running. If you need a male model….let me know

  19. Fern permalink

    please could you clarify what level of teaching/tuition if any is offered at the life drawing session? Thanks.

  20. Lovely thanks, I’m looking in to running all day sessions again so would need either someone to pose at intervals throughout the day, or for a few people to take shifts; not sure what would be best at the moment but if you send your details to I will be in touch when we know more.

  21. Hi Fern
    There is no formal tuition but the sessions are guided. For example, the model sits for 3 three minute quick sketches, 1 ten minute, and then after a break they finish with a half hour. During the break, attendees exchange constructive comments and generally help each other before the final more detailed sitting.
    The class leaders also participate in the session, so they too take part in the constructive exchange, so there is a breadth of feedback and a shared learning experience.
    I hope this helps you!
