We won’t be running our Casual Life Drawing class this coming Saturday. We wish you a wonderful long weekend though, and hope you sneak in some drawing at some point!
We can’t wait for Open Studios in the West this year! It’s going to be BIG! Not only have we scheduled the exciting launch of our new studio space opening to coincide with the open studio weekend but we have activities planned too!
On Saturday we will be offering a free Life Drawing session from 9.45-12pm This is a great opportunity for those who would like to come and give drawing from a model a try or perhaps you would like to bring a friend along. Erika Gofton will be there to give guidance for those who want it. Doors open at 9.30. There will be limited spaces so first in best dressed!
We will have our new studio open for the afternoon so come down and check it out and find out all about our upcoming classes and show off our beautiful new space.
At 4pm we will officially launch the new studio with drinks by gold coin donation and Yarraville musicians Rare Child, who will entertain us with their gypsy-jazz inflected folk.
On Sunday, the studio will be opened to visit. You can also join in a free drawing session with Erika Gofton on hand to help those who want some guidance. All materials provided.
