Join us for a day of nature and life drawing in beautiful West Dartmoor.

The Experience

This fun and relaxed day is aimed at artists who would like to treat themselves to an immersive day of drawing and exploring mark-making, expanding your drawing skills amongst the beautiful and inspiring nature of Dartmoor.

The Day

In the morning we will be drawing the wild nature of Dartmoor, exploring shape, pattern, light and shade; looking close up, and far away, from the detail to the vista.
Then, after a delicious homemade lunch, we will draw a live, nude model, exploring how our experience of drawing nature earlier in the day can inform and interlace with our drawings of The Nude in the afternoon.
Next Date: TBC
Time: 10am – 4pm
Location: TBC
A delicious lunch will be provided, as well as Saskia’s famous flapjacks and refreshments 🙂

Your Guide

Saskia Fraser is a Dartmoor-based artist with her own exciting drawing practice. As well as masterclasses, she runs regular life drawing sessions from a beautiful barn on Dartmoor.


‘Saskia is highly professional and a great artist and very skilled at creating a relaxed atmosphere, just right for drawing.  I felt she got the very best from the model, respectful and friendly, putting them at their ease and working with them to create good poses for drawing…….and oh, yes, she made excellent flapjacks.’
‘Lovely, relaxed drawing with no pressure, no-one looking over your shoulder and a good model.
‘I was welcomed warmly by Saskia. The space was perfect, and the atmosphere very relaxed and everyone was friendly. The model was excellent. Looking forward to the next class.’
