Whichever medium or sketch pad size you like come along and hone your life drawing skills at our friendly drawing group, where we draw unclothed models. There is no need to book in advance, or for long term commitment; just turn up when it suits. We meet weekly from mid-February to early December and there is no break for school holidays.
Note: The group is untutored, and you will need to bring your own art materials. We use tables as there is no room for easels but you can bring your own table easel if you wish.
Charges in 2019 will be $12 for waged and $8 for unwaged, and this includes tea or coffee at the break halfway through where you can catch up with the other group members. The charges have had to be increased in order to break even and avoid making a loss.
This group was formerly the long running Turnbull House Life Art Drawing group which had to move after an earthquake and has been organised by the same group of volunteers since its inception. We are not a church group but, like other community groups, rent a meeting room at the St Andrews event centre.
The entrance to the events centre is on the right of St Andrews Church, and we are on the second floor—there is a lift. It is very close to bus stops on The Terrace and a short walk to Lambton Quay.
