This is the second workshop I have attended that Leo has taught at Minerva and I was as pleased with my experience as the first time. Leo clearly has thought through his workshop structure carefully to both support and challenge his students to facilitate an environment where people can develop confidently and effectively. The models were very accomplished and professional further bringing the workshop to a high standard. As well as all that the general atmosphere was very friendly and accommodating allowing us to free up and importantly really ENJOY ourselves! I have taken many life drawing classes/workshops and this was perhaps my favourite one ever! As with last time the space and host at Minerva were fantastic! Big open space which is perfect for making and drawing. They also provide a delicious and generous lunch. I will return again.

I found the two days of charcoal life drawing at Minerva Workshop really productive and stimulating. The tuition was well guided, sensitively thought out and the exercises delivered at a good pace. The studio space is wonderfully lit and has a great, friendly atmosphere. Overall, it was a really satisfying experience that I would definitely recommend booking a workshop here.
