Largest Life Drawing Class at The Courthouse at Altrincham, Altrincham 23 September 2017 Entrance is free

On the penultimate day of the festival, Hidden Altrincham is holding the biggest mass life drawing session the town (or perhaps the country) has ever seen. Open to anyone – from established artists to those still perfecting their stickmen figures – the session will be led by members of Open Studios Altrincham, who will be on hand to offer guidance and advice throughout. Afterwards, each participant will have the option of having their work photographed and added to an online exhibition of drawings made during the event.

Note: Some of the models will be naked. Don’t forget to bring something to lean on, as well as paper and pencils.
