      Hello Bell,
      Thanks for your message. If you haven’t drawn before, its important to let you know these are sessions for practising artists (including staff and students), however, these are not lessons and there won’t be anyone there to teach you. Although these are sessions for artists, you are welcome to join. With reference to the cost, ot depends how many people turn up to share the price of the model. Feel free to contact who will know the price of the model and how that gets shared.
      Kind regards, CCI Promotions.

    I am looking for a currently running life drawing class in Portsmouth preferable on a drop in basis due to health (I have done a little portraiture in the past). It would also be better with wheelchair access but not essential as I can walk variable distances depending on how I am on the day. If you could point me in the right direction I would be grateful.
    Regards. Amanda
