WHAT PREVIOUS PARTICIPANTS HAVE SAID:

"It felt very safe and supportive, both of Vanessa as the model and the attendees. I liked the fact that I wasn't the only complete beginner. The structure was excellent, with good guidance and timings for a novice like me. I loved the sharing at the end - it helps the confidence. My webcam unfortunately malfunctioned so I couldn't share but I could see other people's work, which was lovely. I never thought I would try life drawing as it felt beyond me, but this just goes to show that everyone can try, and everyone's perspective matters.”
