Based in Brighton, Jake is head tutor of the drawing organisation 'Draw' and co-director of The Drawing Circus. He has written instructional drawing books, which aim to help people engage more with drawing, whatever their level of ability.
He is a dedicated campaigner for the practice of art amongst everyone and believes everybody with the will to draw has the capacity to learn.
If you're thinking of heading to a life drawing class for the first time or have been to some sessions but need advice on how to improve, these tutorial are for you! Jake will start off by introducing the materials you'll need to get started, followed by warm-up exercises to help you get sketching without fear and problem solving advice to help you improve your drawings over several sessions.
