Following on from a sell-out year of ‘Life Drawing for Beginners’ courses at the Phoenix Studio, Director of the Henley School of Art, Jo Harris has developed a follow on course to further your sketching skills. 

With over 25 years of Life Drawing experience behind her, endless enthusiasm and a real passion for what she does, Jo has carefully designed these sessions as a 'next step' for Life Drawing students who have covered the basics and are wanting something more. Although this will be an ‘advanced’ course, anyone who has been on Jo’s Beginners course will be ready to join these classes, think of them more as a chance to move forward and on to the next stage of learning. 

This is a chance to get back behind the easel, leave the normal world behind and get lost in soaking up new techniques that will sharpen your drawing instincts and help you learn to find your own style.

Jo’s team of dynamic male and female models will be back to inspire you and each session Jo will introduce different exercises, teaching her students liberating techniques to draw the figure. This course assumes you now have a basic ability to render the human body, pretty much in proportion and are ready to find your own style of drawing – experimenting more with materials and techniques to challenge (and delight) you.

Please note - as this course directly builds on what is learnt during the Beginners Classes, Jo is only able to offer spaces to previous students who have taken the Basics Course with her – this is the only way to ensure that everyone is at the same level and there won’t be anyone being left behind and hopefully nobody champing at the bit wanting to move on before anyone else is ready. 

If you’d like to know more about my Beginner’s Course or sign up to the next available term you can click here – Although it’s called a Beginner’s course, I have many artists who come along for a refresher – it suits all levels!

The wonderful Phoenix Studio will be running unguided Life Drawing sessions on a Tuesday afternoon on the weeks where there isnt a class – practice is EVERYTHING, you’ll find your skills are wildly improved with practice and I can heartily recommend signing up to take part in those session alongside these advanced classes – for more information on those sessions, please click here.

There's no need to bring anything to Jo's course - all materials are provided

Age 17+ (no exceptions)

Jo will also repeat the course again in the New Year (starting in January). Many students will choose to come for repeated terms because you always learn something new and have new revelations the more hone your skills!
