Online Life Drawing

with East London Life Drawing Group


With model, artist and uninhibited jock enthusiast Sam Stewart, aka @45volts on instagram! Sam is a San Fransisco-based digital effects artist with ILM, currently working on the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and knows a good pose or two.

To book a place, please PayPal £6 to with the note ELLD SAM, making sure to send it as a Friends & Family payment. The Zoom link will be sent to the email associated with your paypal ID – please pay before 5pm BST on the day to ensure everybody gets the link in good time. If you don’t have Paypal, email us here and you’ll be sent a digital invoice that you can pay by your preferred method.

You will need: the Zoom app (linked below if you don’t have it installed already), some paper (wallpaper and wrapping paper can do at a pinch), a flat surface, pens/pencils/paint/whatever you fancy, snacks/drinks, and a comfortable seat.

This will be a fun and frisky session, whisking through some 60 second sketches to get you warmed up and relaxed, then progressing through longer poses of 6 and 10 and 15 minutes. There’s be a swift break in the middle if the model requires it (and you can take a break any time you like), and we’ll finish with a 20-30 minute pose. You’ll have about 15 drawings under your belt in 2 hours, and should be millennial pink with pride! Please use the chat function on Zoom to ask any questions and to suggest poses – share pics if you want, album covers, memes, sketches from previous sessions – anything fun to draw.

This is a relaxed training session, not a contest – you ARE good enough to come and draw with us, so don’t mug yourself off with excuses not to practise! We learn by making mistakes, not by avoiding them. Ed, who runs the session, is there to help you with anything you want to improve. Their regular Wednesday evening group is a mix of creative professionals and total novices, all beavering away to refine their skills in a quietly focused and productive weekly session. Drawing from life is a skill you maintain constantly; you’ve never completely finished learning how to represent reality in two dimensions, it just keeps getting better…
