Über die Veranstaltung

Poses: from 5 to 20 mins with more than usual 10 mins poses.

Tutor: Tony James Picanco, Portrait Artist, Founder of, previously the Life Drawing Society as seen on TV, Radio, Press, Youtube. Worked hard at saving in Person classes from 2004, it is now a buzzing industry globally. Before 2004 Tony was a Press, model, Music and event photographer and at 6pm we draw mainly his images.

Modeling Style: Great costumes, outfits to draw in first part but becomes nearly Life drawing after performance. Until numbers grow we'll draw the same costumes but loosing parts of it as we go until nearly life Drawing and without performance. Share your drawings on Social media to help grow numbers back to what it was.

Timing: This is a true drop in anytime Class allowing those with not so good connection to pop in and out at anytime.

Share your Drawings:

Please take a snap of your Artwork with your mobile and privately share on the following links so we can add them to our Newsletters, our Members drawings gallery, Flickr, our "Creative friends" group on FB and our Art Map, using your name rather than surname. Keeping our members and models private is our absolute priority which is why we don't sell their videos/recordings. We protect  pages with passwords, use video hiring  with encryption and  if I get asked to, can create storage folders for you with latest encryption (Maximum security).

Those who'd like to exhibit their Artworks or have them used for publication only need to email them to us in low/medium res. for now, high res. when we start using them.

While I spend an other hour after every class uploading the saved videos, please upload your drawings in one of the following  folders, depending on drawings and/or the classes you attended.

  • Burlesketch Artworks (anyone can copy them):
  • Life Drawings from future or past classes (max. 10/week) at
  • Portraits from classes (max. 10/week) at

  • In depth feedback for Full members at (one per month)
  • Upload Photos of Drawings, Paintings, Sculptures you'd like to exhibit/sell in our Future Life Arts Gallery visible globally at (anything else but Burlesque).

Art Map:

In 2022 when you open your eyes again, after weeks of Christmas isolation, you'll be pleasantly surprised to find a Map, where people and organizations will appear anywhere and everywhere in the World where they'll be able to work, draw, Create together, this could be you too. Stay put until we can show the new born Website around Christmas

Togetherness rather than Business:

We tried for the last 18 years to open new classes in new places, where no one has ever drawn before (about 300 in London UK), trying to bring classes to everyone, everywhere no matter the cost or what the establishment would think and succeeded in evey possible way... Now it has become much easier with zoom to just do get together and draw, so I can happily, continue what I started, which  originally was to just save in person classes from disappearing. With your support I'll keep on improving, influencing, giving, sharing more than ever in 2022.

How to Access to a Class:

You only need to install Zoom from on any device you are planning to use.  Connecting your laptop to your big TV is highly recommended. You can then use the link you'll receive by email (or the Meeting ID which is simply the numbers used in the URL link). For Free events this is the usual method but for paid events you usually buy a ticket on our home page at or Eventbrite only if you are only interested in going to the Live event (FREE). We do not use passwords and only have our Waiting room from which we let you in rapidly at anytime.

Once you are in, you land in the waiting room so you know that the meeting is definitely happening and that you'll be accepted in very soon. Once you've been accepted in, you can switch on your Sound, video and ask any question using the chat function. The quickest way to unmute yourself is to hold the space bar on your laptop, otherwise click on the mike icon at the bottom of your screen. All will be muted, including the model if needed during the Drawing time.

In a meeting:  Keep your camera ON, make sure your phone is on Silent, just in case, keep yourself muted and if you happen to not find your email with the ticket and zoom link then please do not hesitate to text me on +44 7951613705 (call or voicemails aren't used due to spammers) or email me, Tony, at eukart at You can also find Zoom support videos on Youtube or on their website at

Please keep your camera on so we get to know who you are and models also feel much better, especially Burlesque models who are used to a buzzing Live audience. When asked to cheer or clap please try to participate :).

At the end of every class our model will choose her best Drawing and the winner will receive 10% of all takings on the day with a bank to bank transfer or Paypal. This can also be given to the model in their appropriate Patreon group, we'll send you to.

Referral Program: We have a Program that gives you 25% of whatever your friends, colleagues, staff members and family will ever donate.

Christmas: We wrote to Santa this year as I  think I have been really good so let's see what happens, what Santa says...:) He also knows about our Happy donation button on our home  page.

All our classes show on our home page at thelifedrawingnetwork. com

We have many Free classes showing on Eventbrite to give you time to improve at no cost to you so you can enjoy such a Burlesque Drawing treat once in a while with friends...
