About Clare Grossman
What You Need

A uniquely structured workshop intended to develop the artist through a variety of creative and technical exercises aimed at unlocking individual creativity. Taught by experienced tutor Clare Grossman, this class is suitable for the beginner and experienced artist alike.

Clare taught at Lauderdale House previously under Fernside Life Classes, which she founded in 1996. This is a new series of monthly life drawing workshops put together by the Lauderdale House team in collaboration with Clare. 

Each session starts with an inspirational quotation by a great philosopher, artist or writer. The sessions feature one professional life model who will hold a variety of long and short poses. Sessions are structured by the tutor, who is also happy to enable students to work independently too - the aim of these sessions is to build confidence and ability, culminating in a wide variety of original drawing, with students developing their own unique style and work.
