Grace Art Events holds weekly life drawing classes in West End on Wednesday and Thursday nights 7-9pm at Kurilpa Hall, 174 Boundary St, West End. Our aim at Grace Art Events is to spice things up and put some LIFE into drawing and drawing into life!
Bringing Brisbane a variety of models, with traditional nudes to vaudeville costumed theme nights. We have a fortnightly rotation of a traditional nude model and a costumed model on Wednesdays and traditional nude sessions every Thursday.
BYO your own drawing materials, (sorry no oils or acrylics allowed in the hall) some paper, charcoal & pastels are available for use.
These are untutored classes designed to develop your drawing techniques through practice. These classes suit beginners and trained artists alike, we encourage you to learn from one another, in developing your creativity! In this class we start with 1 minute warm-ups and work our way up to 15 (and sometimes 20) minute poses.
If you are a complete beginner we would recommend the book "Drawing on the Right Side of The Brain" which is available on the shop section of our website at http://www.graceartevents.com.au
There is no need to book ahead, just turn up. Classes are $15 per person to help cover costs of hall hire and life models. Often only a few people RSVP, but as people get to know our class they often don't bother to RSVP anymore... our classes often have upwards of 15 people, so don't be shy or worry that no one will be there!
Photos from the drawing sessions are posted on our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/GraceArtEvent5 along with lots of arts info, art competitions, arts music and performace events. Many of our costume models are performers, musicians, burlesque performers, designers and artists and we share their upcoming events also.
Vaudeville Costumed Events
These are for those of you who are a little bored with traditional nude life drawing and want to spice it up! Still based with the human form, we have different performers from around Brisbane to sit and model for us for the night. Burlesque, pin up, circus, belly dance, clowns, dancers, even actors in everyday costume such as a builder! We aim to tickle your fancy with a new surprise to draw each fortnight. Check our facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/GraceArtEvent5) to see what's coming up! Everyone, no matter your level of skill or experience is welcome!
If you are looking for some tuition, we have started running a six week beginner drawing course- the next one will begin on Saturday the 13th of February from 10am-12pm at The Boundary Hotel.
