Mackintosh Life Drawing

Life Drawing, Charles Rennie Mackintosh

I am now hosting a series of new Sunday Life Drawing sessions in the stunning venue which is Mackintosh Queen’s Cross, home of the Charles Rennie Mackintosh Society.

The sessions take place in the unique, Mackintosh designed hall space which is flooded with natural light (and the closest working environment to the Glasgow School of Art I have experienced!) They consist of a series of short and longer poses over 2 hours and 30 minutes (with a break of course) and are mostly self guided although I am happy to offer tutorial advice to anyone who want it. Basic materials and tea/coffee/biscuits are provided, as well as easels, drawing boards and seating is available if required. You are also welcome to bring along your own materials (excluding any hazardous materials such as oil paints or solvents.

The work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh and the Glasgow Four continues to inspire and influence today’s contemporary artists and for these sessions you are welcome to think about the beautiful elongated and almost mythical depictions of bodily forms created by artists working in this style.

All levels are welcome to join, and sessions are limited to 12 people max so pre-booking is highly recommended. Tickets are £12 when purchased in advance or £15 on the door (subject to availability).

Tickets can be purchased here.

Parking around the church is free, the 60, 61 or 17 bus will drop you off right outside or you can get the subway to St Geroge’s Cross and walk up Maryhill Road.
