The Swarthmore Centre offers rooms to hire and hosts courses for learning and teaching and can be found just outside Leeds city centre. Our life drawing classes takes place in the purpose built art studio with a well-lit, 2 level open-area which can comfortably fit around 20 people (numbers will be limited to 20 at a time for safety reasons).

Easels and drawing boards are provided for free and some paper is available
at a small cost. Please bring all art materials you wish to use.
Each session is split into 2 halves, 10:00-12:30 and 13:00-15:30. You
can attend either morning or afternoon sitting at 10 or 18 for the whole day.

Car: Follow directions to Park Lane College. Keeping the college on your left, the centre is part of a terrace on your right. There are a limited number of spaces behind the centre.

Train: Take the free bus service from the station's main entrance and alight at Park Lane College. Head right down the road, keeping the college on your left side and you will see the Swarthmore centre on your right just after the corner in a row of Victorian terraces.

Foot: From the Town Hall, follow the headrow until you reach the Law Courts. Turn right in front of the courts and turn left at the end of that road. Continue over a large footbridge over a dual carriageway and forward until you come to a road in front of you with a park on the right and a set of terraces on the left, one of which is the centre itself.
