About The Art Week
12th to 19th June
Artist Bella Franks is returning to The Peligoni Club to host her popular life drawing classes, as well as a daily portrait corner for guests to learn portrait drawing. There will also be the chance to become the portrait model and sit for Bella as she sketches you.
Bella Franks is a figurative artist who hosts pop-up life drawing classes in London and Brighton in living rooms, members clubs, work places and for special events. Her laid-back and welcoming approach to this classical art practice is refreshing and totally in-tune with our relaxed and fun-loving ethos at Peligoni.
Life Drawing Classes
Bella will host two life drawing classes in the relaxation area behind our spa. Classes are free to attend, and all participants will receive a welcome drink upon arrival. Canapés will be served and a bartender will be on hand. All materials are provided and Bella will be offering guidance. The classes are open to all abilities! Whether you can draw like Da Vinci or can only muster a stick man, all can come and get creative.
The Portrait Corner will be an interactive space where guests can drop in to learn the art of portrait drawing as well as getting the chance to be drawn by Bella.
Bella will demonstrate through simple drawing techniques as well as some fun activities such as drawing with a continuous line or with your opposite hand. Artist Laura Ryan will also be on hand during these sessions, helping guests learn new skills with fun and interactive portrait drawing. The Peli Portrait Corner is a great opportunity to learn about portrait drawing or be drawn yourself!
