Weekly Life Drawing in Edinburgh

Join us for drawing and music – open to all skill levels

Welcome to All The Young Nudes Life Drawing Club in Edinburgh! We are delighted to host you, on a weekly basis, in the excellent venue space that is Cabaret Voltaire. We can accommodate up to 100 sketchers, and average around 50-60 weekly. There is no tuition at our life drawing sessions, though we encourage anyone who likes to draw to come along. We provide all materials and any help if you need it. We encourage experimental and fun drawing without any pressure or any need to share. You can share if you like of course!

A tiny brief history of who we are

Established in 2009 in Glasgow, we started sketching on the east coast due to popular demand! It’s great to see you all coming back to Cab Vol each week. We are based in Glasgow and do our best to reach you all over there in Edinburgh but it can prove tricky – we host drawing sessions and events all over Scotland which is made possible by the dedicated staff in each city who reliably ensure you all have a great session. We are always on the hunt for enthusiastic new team members – if you’re interested in working with ATYN, drop us a line.

Share you work (or don’t) – It’s entirely up to you

We love to see your work and often take photographs on the night – it’s great to see people posting their work on our Facebook page (ATYNEdinburgh) and tagging us on Instagram (@all_the_young_nudes). Please continue to do this dear followers as it’s such a joy to see. We love your first drawing, we love your last drawing, and we especially love the journey in between. Equally, we appreciate that sometimes you just don’t want to show anyone your work and it’s fun to hide in a corner in the back. We love doing that too. Come along and do just that!

Events or parties of your own – let’s do it!

Please get in touch if you would like us to host your own private life drawing party, if you would like to talk about modelling, if you fancy some tutored sessions, if you think you’ve found a venue that might be perfect for a special life drawing event. We want to hear from you and make these things happen!
