What we're about

Grace Art Events holds weekly life drawing classes in West End; weekly on Wednesday and Thursday nights
7-9pm. We have now permanently moved to the Uniting Church Hall at 11 Sussex Street,
West End. Costume Sessions are held on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month.

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.

BYO your own drawing materials and paper, some charcoal, pastels, butcher's paper and drawing boards are available for use. We set up tables and chairs in the round for you to draw at, but if you would prefer to bring along your own easel you are more than welcome.

We are happy for you to use a wide variety of materials, just please make sure if you like to make a mess that you clean up after yourself. The Church appreciates finding a tidy space.

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 and are looking for some drawing instruction, head to our website and register your interest and we will contact you when our next beginner drawing course is due to run (no obligation). https://www.graceartevents.com.au/learn-to-draw

There is no need to book ahead, just turn up. Classes are $20pp ($15 concession) 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! If you would prefer to pre-pay for class online and book your spot, just head to http://graceartevents.eventbrite.com where you can also find discounts on bulk class purchases.

Photos from the drawing sessions are posted on our Instagram account at http://www.instagram.com/graceartevents (http://www.instagram.com/graceartevents)

Often, despite being a social group, the activity of drawing doesn't leave much time for social connection and networking, so we created the Grace Art Events Creative Network where people share their exhibitions, workshops, gigs, events & performances, jobs, competitions and opportunities, relevant news articles, ask and answer questions or just network with other creatives and/or supporters of the arts.

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 on 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! Check our Facebook page ( http://www.facebook.com/GraceArtEvent5 ) to be kept up to date with these sessions!

TUTORED Life Drawing Session with Mina as the model

West End Uniting Church Hall

A$20.00

TUTORED Life Drawing Session with Mina as the model Ok! We are doing it! For ages people have been asking me for tutored sessions... I have to say, the main reason I haven't so far is a little selfish, as I don't get to draw as well! However, people keep asking, so we are going to test this out! It's fine to come along and ignore me as well if you just want to draw! As this is the first tutored session, and it is very short notice, it will be the same price this week as an untutored session, but will go up to $25 if we do it again. If you are keen for tutoring, I'd love to get some feedback from you... are there particular things you'd like to learn? How often would you like tutored sessions? Weekly? Fortnightly? Monthly? Let me know! 7-9pm, $20pp/ $15 students & concession Uniting Church Hall, 11 Sussex Street, West End (On the corner of Vulture and Sussex Streets) • What to bring BYO Drawing materials and paper (whatever you like to draw with).
