Sara Myers will instruct on drawing the figure – Sara Myers has had a traditional academic training. She has a studio in Milton Keynes, where she continues her own artistic practice and several of her public sculptural commissions are local, in Wolverton, Lodge lake and Stony Stratford.

She is very experienced figurative sculptor and has sculpted over 20 figures for Madame Tussauds.
Julia Roach will instruct on painting the figure – Julia Roach is an established visual artist and facilitator whose practice is primarily focused on experimenting with mixed media, graphite and inks. Julia’s work often features collected and found objects. Drawing is intrinsic part of her creative process and my approach is predominantly figurative incorporating colour and exploring a variety of mark making approaches.
