Life Drawing with Anthea da Silva


Life Drawing with Anthea da Silva



5:30PM - 7:30PM

$75-00 for 3 sessions

Wednesdays 30 nov. 7 & 14 dec.

We're at it again with Life Drawing in the Gallery. This term, sessions will be held within the exhibition Bright, with award-winning artist, Anthea da Silva back on deck as our fearless and skilled instructor.

These special sessions cater to beginners, intermediates and the emerging artists. Offering 2 hours of creative time between friends and sips, it's a guaranteed spot of fun. With a live model holding a dynamic range of short and longer poses each week, these classes will develop life-long skills in observational drawing.

Your workshop fee includes all materials, gentle tuition and light refreshments for the three sessions. The Gallery will supply a desktop easel, drawing boards (approx. A3 sized), paper and utensils, but you are welcome to bring your own dry materials if you desire. 

 Anthea da Silva

Anthea da Silva is an artist whose portraiture and figurative works are inspired by a passion for Life Drawing, or ‘Yoga for Artists’. She’s facilitated Life Drawing sessions in Art Galleries, Wineries, Museums, Universities & Gyms in regional NSW, WA & Victoria for many years, and brings a combination of immersive and experimental techniques that also reflect her studies in anatomy, physiology and whole-brain learning. Anthea’s careers span Occupational Therapy, tertiary arts education and Gallery Programming & Curating and she’s presented workshops in prisons, hospitals, boardrooms and in remote outback communities. In March 2020, Anthea was awarded the inaugural Darling Portrait Prize at the National Portrait Gallery, Canberra with her portrait of Dr Elizabeth Cameron-Dalman, OAM.
