Draw Brighton Logo


At Draw we run affordable online and in-person drawing, painting and printmaking classes, open to everybody. We run online life classes and printmaking-from-home courses for our international drawing community, as well as weekly in-person sessions from our Brighton studio. You can sign up to the Draw Patreon for discounts on our in-person sessions, tiered access to our online sessions, artists's reference photos and tutorial videos. You can find details of Jake Spicer's online Portrait Drawing course HERE.

If you're keen to come to our in-person life classes sessions you can book one-off sessions via the timetable or drop-in to a class. You can watch a short film about us right HERE.

Coming up soon…


Since we opened in 2009 we have been building a supportive and open community of artists, life models and tutors, focused around drawing. At our studio Brighton we run weekly drop-in life drawing classes for all abilities alongside a programme of tutored drawing and printmaking courses. We also run online classes for our international drawing community via the Draw Patreon where, from as little as £3+VAT per month, you can get access to our our artists's reference image archive, live online life drawing and portait drawing classes, instructional videos and discounts at our in-person sessions. If you'd like more details just get in touch via the contact page, or sign up to our newsletter for monthly updates. Draw Brighton Ltd is a registered social enterprise; we receive no external funding and re-invest all of the profits back into the improvement of the Draw studio and into projects that support artists in Brighton. If cost is a barrier to attending any classes at Draw, please get in touch and we will make sure you are able to access our sessions at an affordable price.

To mitigate against the risk of the transmission of contagious illness at our sessions we ask people not attend with Covid, flu or colds and can offer full refunds for anybody who can't come along. We pay all our freelance tutors & models sick pay, we monitor ventilation in the studio, aiming for CO2 levels of less than 800 ppm and we use an air purifier with HEPA filters at all times.
