About the Event

Oh I've been longing to run another session with Vicky (@fortheloveofass) since our last session so I'm THRILLED that the time has finally come! We've been waiting for the weather to warm up so the donkeys can have their coats off and show us those gorgeous markings. 

Our last session had us all falling in love with the residents at this VERY special donkey sanctuary. Honestly, the work they do and the lengths they go to to ensure the safe wellbeing of this wildly underestimated and valued animals is just extraordinary and thoroughly inspiring. Vicky will be chatting to us about the residents whilst we draw and even if you just come along to listen to that you are going to love it! 

Please don't miss out on this very special drawing session, it's going to be WONDERFUL!

HALF OF ALL TICKET SALES will go directly to Longhopes so you can feel extra good about your purchase.

Everyone is welcome as always : )


The Economy has gone bananas (I'm pretty sure you've noticed!). It's that much harder to pay the bills, let alone find extra pennies to enjoy activities and I don't want affordability to get in the way of anyone wanting to come to Animal Life Drawing. I really want everyone to be able to draw here which is why I've made tickets "pay what you can" for the forseeable.

The usual ticket price is £12 and if you can pay this, great, that really helps me to keep the classes running. But if all you can afford is £2, then that's great too - I would genuinely rather have your company than not. I mean it. I love drawing with you, it makes me happy, and I know that drawing animals will make things feel that bit brighter for you too.

All levels of creatives are welcome to these sessions and there is never any pressure to share your work if you don't want to. What you can expect is to find an encouraging group of animal-loving artists who love the challenge of drawing all creatures great and small, feathered or fishy, we love them all! These sessions are unguided, but I'm always happy to chat through process and offer advice.

DO BRING PLENTY OF PAPER - you will get through a lot! The rest is up to you, but I recommend choosing materials that move quickly across the page for those moving animal studies. 

PLEASE ARRIVE IN PLENTY OF TIME - the sessions are always jam-packed with footage so I try to start promptly at 7pm so it's a good idea to jump on the zoom ten mins beforehand to get settled. I can of course let you in if you arrive late (I'm no meany!) : )

I can't wait to draw with you!
