Join the First Saturday Group for a life drawing workshop

The First Saturday group is an informal, not-for-profit group of artists who meet at Maitri Studio on the first Saturday of each month for a life drawing session.

This is an informal and relaxing opportunity to work on improving your drawing/painting. But if you need some advice or encouragement somebody will always be willing to help. The group has a great mix of experienced artists and beginners, so don't be afraid to ask!

The session is open to any artist over 16 years old (under 18s must have parental permission). Our session is different from others in that it is the only group in Northern Ireland offering a regular two-model life drawing session, with a view to improving our drawing and observation skills by focussing on the relationships between figures.

Cost is £20, concession rate £10 for unwaged.

You’ll need to bring your own materials and equipment, certainly a drawing board, paper and pencils at least and an easel if you have one. Some folks work in various kinds of paint or mixed media and we have had the occasional sculptor along so you are only limited by your imagination.
