SketchPad Drawing has been running upstairs at the Prince Regent Pub for nearly ten years. The classes brings together a mix of artists, both amateur and professional, whose work range from traditional charcoal and painting, to the more avant garde of iPad drawings. Interaction between members is key to its success and has led to some truly inspirational work over the years.


The group was set up and is run by Lisa Brown MA who has been teaching life drawing for over 12 years, as well running her current professional practice. She aims to deliver both traditional and forward thinking, inspiring classes with artists using a variety of mediums. There are two studio rooms and two models each week to use as inspiration. Easels, basic paper and basic materials are provided and included in the price.

Lisa describes SketchPad as “a well established group
of local artists who use the life model to explore and
develop their own unique styles”. It is probably this friendly and informal atmosphere which gives both new and

experienced artists the freedom to explore their own creative individuality. Lisa very much believes that there is an artist in everyone and that the relaxed environment of SketchPad drawing allows students to develop their own artistic approach using the practice of life drawing.


Not so much a formal lesson and more a 'come for a drink and draw' evening.

We have regular events, shows and secret auctions. For our SketchPad10 celebration we held an exhibition of past and present artists and a free drop-in drawing event.
