Story

Hello!

Thank you for visiting our page!

London Drawing is raising funds to pay for support for tutors and models as we have to cancel classes due to the coronavirus. Many tutors and models survive as self employed artists, relying on payments for intermittent teaching and modeling in order to live in the capitol and support themselves in their chosen field of artistic practice. While some have day jobs- or other strands of income- others very much do not and paying for rent and day to day basic necessities becomes difficult very quickly. While London Drawing is able to support our tutors and models short term over the next two to three weeks (from March 16th) - longer term things get more difficult. If you come along to our classes and pay for weekly sessions- it would be amazing if you could contribute towards keeping everyone ticking over during this difficult time. All contributions will go towards supporting tutors and models .

In return our tutors and models will be creating content for us to post on our social media and public platforms. This will take the form of mini tutorials, drawing challenges, images, yoga for drawing sessions and ideas which London Drawing followers and subscribers can use to create with while classes are no longer happening, working from home or self isolating. All of this content at the moment will be free for everyone to use.

Find us on social media- join in and tag us in any posts about what you have been making, doing, any ideas- all welcome!

We hope you will be able to contribute towards our fund- anything however small is useful - and we hope you will join in and create with us. Thank you so much!

    We have spent almost 2/3 of the fund on this so far- and from now on we will be paying our tutors and hosts for the sessions they are teaching for us online using this fund and the contributions made via PayPal. So thank you so much for supporting us and what we do! And we will continue to endeavour to provide fun and interesting sessions for you to get involved with plus inspiring content via our social media. Its taking a while for this to filter out but we hope you have enjoyed things so far! Do follow us @LondonDrawing!!
