The Exhibit

Headed up by professional artist Dan Whiteson, this life drawing session at Balham's Exhibit is one of the best evening art classes in London. Expect great music, tipples aplenty and an informal approach that'll help you step out of your comfort zone and create something totally unique.

Party n Paint

Heading to some of London's favourite haunts, Party n Paint combines the two for one helluva night out. While you put brush to paper, a DJ will be thumping out bangers, which you can enjoy alongside plenty of vodka shots. And if you're lucky, you may even be able to bag some cracking prizes.


@ Toulouse Lautrec Jazz Club on Monday 3rd April 2023 and 4 other Mondays

Taking place at Toulouse Lautrec Jazz Club, this Life Drawing With East London Strippers Collective is an art class like no other. Put your skills to the test as your model performs striptease, pole tricks and so much more. You'll create a masterpiece to be proud of.

Neon Naked Life Drawing

Steering away from classic practices, Neon Naked Life Drawing Classes in London are exactly what it says on the tin. You'll experiment with texture, light and colour, trying out a range of different techniques, to draw your living models who are covered in fluorescent UV lights.
