with artist and tutor Graham Flack

Saturday 10th & Sunday 11th July

10am - 4pm

13 Great King Street, EH3 6QW


In order to fulfil our obligations to tutors and models, as well as sustaining cash flow to the school, please note that we are only able to offer 50% of each class capacity to those booking with credit. If you are not able to redeem your course credit this term, we will endeavour to honour your credit in the following term. Please read our Refund Policy closely.

We are delighted to be able to offer an intensive, two day workshop with artist and tutor Graham Flack this July.

Each day students will work with one model for a day-long pose. This work would be more suited to those who have some life drawing experience already. For those of you who are completely new to life drawing, we are offering a 2 Half Day Introduction to Life Drawing Workshop

With the easing of restrictions towards the end of June, we will be able to allow for a slightly larger capacity in our studio, but as you might expect there will be still be practices in place to ensure the safety of our tutors, models and students. 

Graham has had many years’ experience in tutoring life drawing and is a well-known figure in the arts scene in Edinburgh. His own practice is rooted in drawing; both life and portraiture; and he now has collectors for his extraordinary drawings, and paintings, from all over the world.


Working from the nude model is a core activity within art practice and during this workshop you will be encouraged to develop your understanding of the human form, maintaining throughout a creative and personal approach. You will be working predominantly in charcoal.


This workshop will enable students to demonstrate that they are able to:

- Work with materials such as charcoal and pencil

- Understand proportion, body mass and structure

- Investigate new ways of looking at and understanding the human figure

- Take a personal and confident approach to drawing


Materials List

  • Willow charcoal thin and medium
