Open Portrait Sessions

Open portrait session at Northern Realist

Drop in Portrait Sessions with poses running for 2 and a half hours run every Monday during term time.

The long portrait poses are ideal for Alla Prima painting studies or long drawings and give you a chance to push your work further in a purpose designed studio. Customised easels with a drawing board and a tray for your materials are provided as well as seated positions if you’d rather work sitting down. The studio also has carefully designed lighting to give everyone a great working environment.

The sessions are not taught but there’s always friendly advice on hand if you’d like a bit of help or feedback. All you need bring along is whatever you want to work with and lots of enthusiasm.

You’re welcome to arrive from 5:30pm to get set up early, helping you start the session in the right frame of mind and get the most out of the evening.

One of the goals of Northern Realist is to create a hub of like minded artists to meet, swap ideas and see different techniques. The open drawing sessions offer a great way to do this while pushing your abilities

Everyone is welcome regardless of whether you study at Northern Realist. If you are interested in studying at Northern Realist, Monday sessions are a great opportunity to see the studio and get idea of what’s on offer.
