Book in for five weeks of Life Drawing. This term, sessions will be held in the Gallery amongst 'Goulburn Bustle 2021' and delivered by local artist, Anthea da Silva.

Our life drawing sessions are designed for the beginner, the lapsed & the totally hooked and will offer 2 hours of creative time out while sharing art chat & vino. Each week our live model will hold a dynamic range of short & longer poses to challenge you to focus in real time, to see and draw line and shape, form and tone.

Your workshop fee includes all materials, some tuition and light refreshments for the five sessions. We will supply a desktop easel, drawing boards (approx. A3 sized), paper and utensils but you are welcome to bring your own.
