Twice a month on Wednesday
Sotto al British is very pleased to host an additional life drawing event dedicated to a study of the figure in the same pose, for a two hour period.

The emphasis continues to be on ’social life drawing’ with no instruction provided.
Just great models and a good creative environment.


The long poses will be hosted twice per month.

There are a few easels available for people who want to use sight size drawing methods.

Bring along your own drawing materials and paper.


Drawing begins at 7pm and continues to 9pm. Then we finish up with a glass of wine and a chat.


Donation: 10 Euro includes a glass of wine.

TIps for the model are gratefully accepted.


No booking required, just come along and join in!


Provided: Model, chairs, and wine refreshments 
To Bring: Your art supplies and easel if required
