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. Our community now includes life models and drawing enthusiasts from all around the world and we look forward to running online sessions through Patreon well beyond this pandemic. 

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 our Patreon income is divided equally between the 35 models featured in our photosets.
  • 35% of the Patreon income is used to pay the tutors and artists who work at Draw and to cover our online running costs. 
  • 20% will be used to pay our weekly online life models, with modelling work divided fairly between our 35 core models and 10 guest models. Any remaining money each month is put into our model hardship fund.
  • 10% is used to subsidise our in-person sessions, guaranteeing a fair hourly rate and sick pay for our models & tutors.
  • 10% goes towards commissioning new photoshoots for the Draw Patreon

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
$8,376 - 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.
