Welcome to The Art Room’s CASUAL LIFE DRAWING – ONLINE.
We pride ourselves on running a highly professional studio in real life with a warm and inviting community of artists, where beginners to experienced work alongside each other in a respectful and non-judgemental environment. We work with the best professional models in Melbourne and feel strongly that it is a true collaboration and a beautiful exchange that we are very privileged to be part of.
Life drawing is an incredibly empowering, beautiful and special thing to be part of and it’s really about connection, vulnerability (from both drawer and model) and empathy. A life class is a unique environment and demands a high standard of behaviour and respect, so just as we expect this in our physical studio, we also demand this in our online community.
These online sessions are held on zoom, if you haven’t used zoom before please download the software and create a free account prior to the class. The session will run as follows:
– 5 x 2 minute poses
– 2 x 5 minute poses
– 2 x 10 minute poses
– 10 minute break
– 2 x 20 minute poses
