Join us at Leighton House for a series of 3 life drawing workshops for young people (ages 16-25), each of them led by an emerging artist. The free workshops will focus on a different aspect of Leighton’s drawing practice, in dialogue with the lead artist’s own work. You can join one, two or all three of the workshops.


Saturday 2 March, 10:30am to 12pm with Elinor Stanley

Responding to Leighton’s use of drama, narrative and mood, Elinor Stanley’s workshop will explore how to life drawing can heighten drama, push narrative and accentuate mood.


Saturday 9 March, 10:30am to 12pm with Olivia Sterling

Responding to the theatrical elements of Leighton’s work, Olivia Sterling’s workshop will explore how contrast, negative space and misdirection can create interesting life drawings.

Sterling’s cropped compositions, often hiding figures’ faces, imply a narrative. Similarly, Leighton used drapery (drawing the folds and ripples of fabric) to imply a body.


Thursday 14 March, 7pm to 8:30pm with Naomi Afrassiabi

Inspired by the regular music concerts Leighton held in his art studio, Naomi Afrassiabi’s workshop will explore the relationship between music, movement and life drawing.

Please note this workshop runs 7pm-8:30pm, doors open 6:30pm, doors close 9pm
