Want a way to take a break from all the screens in your life and to explore your creativity? Life drawing is an activity that is suited to any experience level from absolute beginners to professional artists.
It allows you to exercise your brain no matter how long you’ve been doing it. And most of the time, it’s not about producing a final artwork, but enjoying and learning from the process itself.
Untutored life drawing has recently started at ArtWorld Studio Gallery in Norman Park on Tuesday nights. While there are quite a few life drawing options around Brisbane, there are currently none (that we know of anyway!) around Norman Park, Carindale, Carina Heights, Mansfield, Mt Gravatt, Camp Hill, Coorparoo etc. So this is rather special for the region!
There is a nude model (male or female) for two hours and you just need to bring your own materials. If you don’t have many art materials right now – just some paper and a pencil will be enough to get started. Other great materials to try are charcoal, graphite and pastels. Check out drawing supplies at Art Shed Brisbane. As a general rule, the session starts with some short poses and then moves into some longer poses. There is a break at half time for some light refreshments.
ArtWorld Studio Gallery is an air-conditioned spacious studio and gallery that is very welcoming of newcomers. It holds regular art exhibitions as well as art workshops.
