About Draw & ETC
Draw Brighton is an independent art school in Brighton, UK.They believe that good quality drawing education should be accessible to everybody and usually run drop-in, short-term and long-term courses from our Brighton studio. During the pandemic they have moved their life drawing classes online and are providing drawing resources via their Patreon page, where you can support from £3 per month.
