figure this is a body positive platform sharing creative ways to celebrate every body. 

We started figure this in 2019 as we wanted to create life drawing classes that cater for all levels of experience. We wanted this space to be friendly, supportive and inclusive, both for artists and for life models. Now we provide in-person, online, special, private and on-demand life drawing classes across Belfast and beyond. 


We're only just getting started and have lots of exciting plans for the future, but our core motive will always remain the same, which is to create an accessible, inclusive space where people can access the creative tools needed to reconnect with the body.
