About Draw Brighton

At Draw Brighton we have have been running flexible and affordable life drawing classes in Brighton, UK since 2009 - we are a non-profit making social enterprise and form part of Brighton's amazing and diverse community of life models, artists and tutors. 

Our mission
We set up this Patreon page to keep our community thriving during the COVID-19 pandemic, while continuing to provide ongoing work for our freelance models and tutors. By checking our Patreon navigator site HERE you'll be able to see everything we have produced for our supporters since March 2020. We will be continuing to release a new set of reference photos, a new blog-tutorial and new online life classes every week. 

Draw exists to:
  • Provide safe, flexible & affordable drawing eduction
  • Provide income & support to models, artists & tutors
  • Maintain a platform for inspiration, collaboration & human connection 
By supporting us, you will be becoming part of our extended community and will help us to continue to produce accessible online life classes and drawing resources into the future.


Where the money goes (after processing fees)
  • 25% of the money raised on the Patreon is distributed as a monthly royalty to the 30 life models in our reference photos
  • 10% of the money is put aside in an emergency fund to support artists and life models during the Covid-19 pandemic
  • 20% of the money goes towards our monthly running costs - studio costs, software subscriptions & paying our core team
  • 45% of the money raised goes towards paying models, artists and tutors to write new articles, teach classes and model for our online life drawing sessions

Take a look at our social media and if you believe in what we do and could benefit from the patron rewards we can offer - we really appreciate your support. Pop us an email on [email protected] if you have any questions. 
Goals
$8,357.58 - reached! per month
The support we have received so far has been astounding and is hugely appreciated. We are currently paying 100% of the income received on this Patreon to over 40 models, tutors and artists every month, helping us create the resources that we are sharing on here - photo-sets to draw from, blogs, tutorials and patron rewards. 

£6000 per month will allow us to meet our full running costs at Draw. At this level of support we will be able to start online ETC seminars and start a new weekly portrait session.
