    I set up and ran a not-for-profit life drawing class which was held every two weeks in Newcastle upon Tyne. My responsibilities included: booking models, graphic design and advertising, and running each session.

Each session cost the price of a drink and all the proceeds were used to supply free art materials and to give the model a proper wage.
