As a student at the Royal Academy, Turner took life drawing classes, learning to capture the human form through the study of live models. Drawing from life was a central element in the training of all artists in the 18th Century as it allowed students to observe the human form and Turner continued to draw figures and nudes in his sketchbooks throughout his life.

Whether you are a beginner or wish to improve your skills, join us at Turner's House for life drawing classes with a live model. In these sessions, experienced artist and teacher, Allan Chin, will take your through the use of charcoal and pencil, how to present the human form on paper and exploring basic anatomy, the body's overall silhouette and proportions. Hosted within

Turner's country retreat, perhaps some of his genius will rub off on you?
