FAQs
I can barely draw a stick figure. Can I attend?
Absolutely! We will cover the basics of life drawing to get you started and offer some helpful tips along the way.
What if I have covid?
Although we are trying to adapt and be flexible with the current environment, having spaces dropped for an event last minute directly effects the livelihood of our small business and the artists involved. If you are unwell and/or tested positive for covid, we please ask that you offer your ticket to a friend before asking us to reschedule. Please note tickets are non-refundable.
I am a skilled artist, will this event be right for me?
Yes! we are excited to make life drawing publicly available to all. We will cover some basic details and exercises for the beginners however we are more than happy for you to ignore us and take advantage of the atmosphere and access to a life model to hone your practice.
Will the models be showing all?
Yes. By the models being completely nude it allows you to view the body in it's purest most natural form.

Your Teacher

As children, we love art/painting/creating but as we get older we forget how happy it makes us. It only takes one person to tell us we are no good and that's it! -we never do it again.

Jessa's goal is to remind people of the joy that art brings and the power it has to help you relax and gain confidence.

Jessa's style is to keep it simple. No fancy art lingo, easy shapes, bright colours and lots of encouragement. You may not have painted since school but you now have the right tools to…

Great, relaxed atmosphere. I am a total novice and they helped me achieve the best of my drawings as a beginner. The teachers were approachable and helpful. I have booked up more sessions now. Thanks
