Drawing underpins all art disciplines, and at City Lit, we offer a range of creative, hands-on Drawing courses to suit all levels of student experience from beginners to more experienced students and to encourage creativity and development of drawing skills for all.

Our courses are taught by professional artists who bring their wealth of experience and their specialist knowledge to enrich the student experience and to help students progress into their chosen art discipline while putting the subject into a historical and contemporary context.
