Buy individual and group tickets (it's cheaper!) for the next drawing session on 2nd May!
The Life in Still Life drawing workshops is a series a little different to the usual 'life drawing' set up - they are a mix between still life and life drawing. Attendees are presented with a still life composition of plants, fruits, ornaments and beautiful fabric textures, but the key difference is the presence of a model - posed with the elements of still life and therefore, a part of it.
The Life in Still Life Drawing is an art session that is comprised of the fundamentals of both life drawing and the exploration of still life.

WHY STILL LIFE?
Still life is described as the artistic study of objects that have or have had life; usually comprised of fruits, plants and other more inanimate objects. Still life drawing and painting is a medium that has existed for centuries, although historically, it was dismissed as a serious art form and used more as an academic activity to develop skills in composition and texture. Despite this, some of our most esteemed artists have created masterpieces based on still life settings, providing us invaluable insight into how they lived in their time and what they valued most.
Held at Autograph ABP Gallery, a stunning gallery and non-profit space designed by the brilliant architect David Adjaye in the centre of Shoreditch. The workshop is in a crisp white space, and the gallery is open all night so there is a chance to see the world-class exhibitions happening at the same time!
