We are extremely lucky at Dupont to have two very experienced and talented Tutors – Lucy Parker and Caroline Marsland.

Caroline is our Tutor for Wednesday afternoons and Lucy and Caroline are responsible for alternate Thursday sessions. Caroline Marsland continues to run special sessions on alternate Wednesdays.

From time to time Lucy Parker and Caroline Marsland run workshops on a Thursday. Information is posted on the club notice board. As usual, facilities are provided for members who don’t wish to join the workshops.

Thursday morning and afternoon sessions have a live model. For those who prefer not to do the model, a still life is provided for all sessions. The first Thursday in the month, pm only, we will have models with costume

Wednesday Afternoons: (instructor: Caroline)

Every other week will have a demonstration. There is also a still life for members at each session.
