Have you stopped drawing since childhood? Did you ever wonder what made you give up something you liked as a child?
During adolescence, many of us experience the "drawing crisis" when self-consciousness and self-criticism become heightened. “It doesn't resemble the real thing” - this is what causes many of us to stop “taking a line for a walk.”
Is there a reason why adults should take a pencil or brush and try again? YES, and there are more than one reasons for this.
Often it is about losing sense of time and place, forgetting about yourself, that helps to relax and reduce stress. It is about creativity and media exploration. Your hands become an instrument to express ideas and observations of the world around you.
Many people find it as a valuable tool to enhances coordination and concentration. Drawing makes your eyes, brain and hands work together. Some people regain the joy of lines and colours.
During our masterclasses, you'll try basic and effective drawing and painting techniques. Overcome your inner critic by doing it at a new level!
Our masterclasses are about rediscovering the joy of creativity. What could be better than being able to fill a blank page and making your ideas and thoughts come to life?

One of London’s most recognisable buildings - towering on the south bank of the River Thames as a legacy to the city’s industrial past.
RIGHT MIX OF FUN AND FOCUS
Reading or picking out the visual effects in an image is an incredible adventure for our brain and eyes. The level of concentration during those minutes of drawing is just amazing. Even so, we know when to take a break. In our club, art creation is more about joy and fun than just studying techniques. Our events are focused on creating space and opportunity for some relaxed conversation around shared interests. We experiment, chat over a glass of champagne, and connect.
We keep group sizes small up to 6 people, because we tailor masterclasses to individuals. Managing everyone’s experience is important – and the group’s size has a direct effect on this.
PERSONALIZED CONTENT AND FEEDBACK
We dedicate time to the one-to-ones, taking each person through their journey keeping in mind their preparation and skill level. The trainer is always on hand to support guests as they practice.
