NOV 21 Sun, 17:00 - 18:00 GMT

Online Comedy meets Drawing! Featuring Helen Bauer, Chloe Petts, Sophie Duker and Rosie Jones.

Join us for a drawing class on the funnier side!

This is a fantastic opportunity to draw and laugh along with a fantastic panel of comedians, live from the comfort of your home (or with the included 7 days Recording access).

We will be drawing from subjects chosen by Sophie, Rosie, Helen and Chloe. Tutor Frances Stanfield will be guiding you and our stand-ups through various short drawing exercises inspired by the chosen subjects.

Subjects could be (but are not limited to): photographs, a short passage/descriptive text, moving image, an object on screen, music/sound.

Expect fun, mischief and some disorderly drawing!

Suitable for all drawing levels - from "I never draw/haven't drawn since school", to "I draw every day".

16 years +

You will need:

  • Paper (approx. 10 sheets or 5 if you don't mind drawing on the back)
  • Pencil/Pen - whatever drawing materials you have available

Everyone is welcome to join this Pay-What-You-Can class. We suggest a donation of £15 which will go directly to the comedians and our tutor. However, we understand that may not be possible for everybody. Please be honest and pay what you can afford so that we can continue to offer our sessions on a donation basis.

Hope you can join us!

After leaving college with an E in Economics and an allergy to the education system, Helen Bauer moved to London to share a bed with her cousin and work in Accessorize on Oxford Street. She lived in London until she was 23, making sketches, waitressing and drinking. She then moved to Berlin to do the same there, and discovered stand up. Helen honed her comedy skills, performing in English, to confused Berlin locals. You can now find Helen's creative writing, charming attitude on stage and special love of pop music all over London. TV appearances include Celebability (ITV2), Stand Up Sketch Show (ITV2), The Dog Ate My Homework (CBBC), Fat Chat (Comedy Central), Edinburgh Nights (BBC Two), Period Dramas (BBC Three), Unexpected Fluids (Radio 1), and Radio 4's Comedy Club (Radio 4).
