Debora Cane Art Classes 

celebrating creative local life

offering popular daytime art classes in Cambridge, Downham Market, Saffron Walden, Ely and the surrounding area

Observational drawing for all abilities.  Small groups located around Cambridge,
Downham Market, Saffron Walden and Ely

Whether you are an existing student, a new student, or a returning student you are always welcome to come along to try a class out.  Each 5 week course is written with both beginners and the more experienced student in mind; and we like to think that students can pick up anywhere in the course schedule and get plenty out of the course.  So don’t think that any prior knowledge, ability, or prerequisite is required for any of these courses. 

Debora Cane Drawing Classes


Small groups located in Ely, Saffron Walden, Downham Market and Cambridge, beginners welcome.  These courses concentrate on line drawing, focusing on simple concepts and practical techniques and are suited for everyone.  No previous experience is required.  Every session has planned content and takes varying approaches to help you build up your own techniques and style, offering you the opportunity to explore how you think, analyse, problem solve and construct. 


If you would like to enrol for a course please send a request via our contact page.  From 1 September 2019 all courses must be paid for in full at time of booking.  A place cannot be guaranteed on a course until it is paid for in full.  No refunds will be given if a course is cancelled within 7 days of the commencement of the course.  Refunds will be considered on a discretionary basis for cancellations giving more than 7 days’ notice, subject to a 25% booking fee. 

Please note that these terms and conditions may be adjusted during the current academic year if it proves necessary to make any changes to bring them in line with the online payment system when it is installed. 

Equipment you will need

All drawing materials such as paper, pencils, pens, plus coloured inks, paint brushes, coloured pens and basic watercolours (when necessary) are provided as part of the course.  It is not essential to bring your own drawing equipment, though you may prefer to do so.  Recommendations will be made during your course as to which art materials you may benefit from equipping yourself with.  Tea, coffee and homemade cake is also provided.

The use of a digital camera or smartphone to take photographs as part of your visual investigation is increasingly mentioned in these courses but it is by no means an essential piece of equipment.
