Our vision

Starting in January of 2009 and, The Brighton Life Drawing Sessions are a new endeavour from Brighton based painter and printmaker Jake Spicer (previously of the Calico Gallery, Brighton). Run at cost price the Sessions are a not-for-profit project intended to provide a friendly and inspiring environment for Brighton’s creative community to come together, share ideas and most importantly, draw. The Sessions will attempt to employ models engaged with all elements of the creative arts, helping to support all elements of our arts sectors in financially interesting times.


We welcome and encourage anyone who is keen to learn, to develop and to engage with drawing practice. Although confident draphtsmen (draphtswomen) and professional artists may prefer the untutored session, and the less experienced may prefer the tutored classes both classes welcome everybody.


There will be two types of session, tutored (taught by Jake Spicer) and untutored. Both will have a nude model and will comprise of a selection of short and long poses, which will vary from session to session. A full program of classes, models booked and related events will be posted here and on the Sessions’ blog (coming soon) so keep your eyes peeled for regular updates. Over booked or very popular session may be repeated for those who missed out on request- please give your feed back!


Jake Spicer’s new studio, Unit 2 (North) Level 5 of New England House, the big building of work units and artists’ studios on New England street, just down from the rear entrance of Brighton Station.


Starting on Monday 12th Jan 2009, held at least twice a week, every week the sessions will be flexibly run, not tying those attending to specific term times. You must book a session, by speaking to Jake, at least one week in advance to avoid disappointment; the classes will fill quickly.

For more information or to make suggestions regarding the class please email/message/call Jake Spicer on the details below:
