All tutored sessions (Life Drawing and Costume Model) are at £10 for full members and £5 for student members.

The programme, and fees, are subject to review and change.  Please check this website and the Newsletter, for the latest information.

For those interested in studio drawing and life drawing classes - St Albans Art Society run popular sessions for its members on Wednesday evenings.  New for the 2022-2023 season are two winter afternoon tutored costumed model drawing sessions.

Selected Wednesday evenings between September and May (see below for exact dates) at Marshalswick Community Centre 7.15 for 7.30 to 9.30pm

Although the majority of our Wednesday studio sessions are untutored life drawing with a life model, the content of sessions varies and we also occasionally have tutored life sessions, clothed models, or still life drawing sessions without a model. Please check the below for the type of session on a particular evening.  This season costumed model sessions at Charles Morris Hall have been included in the programme.

Studio Sessions are open to Members at £8 per evening.  Student members are also very welcome at just £5 per evening, but we do ask that attendees are 16 or over.  Please note that all tutored sessions are priced at £10 for full members and at £5 for student members.  This represents very good value and competitive when compared to other societies.
