1st Saturday of the month
9.00am until 12.00pm
Location: Bonny Hills Community Hall
There’s no better way to sharpen and improve your drawing skills than to draw from life. While enjoying the company of fellow artists, we use pencil, charcoal, watercolour, pastels and conte crayon to create fresh lively drawings. Although the class is untutored, many participants are more than happy to assist anyone not totally confident of their ability.
Life Drawing sessions are open to the public and not just HVFAA members.
The fee of $15 includes tea and coffee and covers the cost of the model.
Please contact Bernice on 0417 417 389 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to attend.
