    31 March – 2 April 2017
    Preview: Thursday 30 March 2017, 6-9pm 

    The Experimental Life Drawing class at OVADA on Wednesday evenings is now in its fourth year and we have recently introduced a second class on Mondays. This exhibition provides an opportunity to see a selection of drawings from both classes made over the last 12 weeks.

    There have been a number of different models posing for the class, and each session has had a different ‘theme’. From the novice to the more experienced, each of the students has responded in very different ways to each thematic session and this is clearly seen in the work on show.

    For further information about our classes visit: www.ovada.org.uk/classes.

    Open: 12-6pm daily

    Venue: OVADA

    Admission Free
