WAITING LIST -1 Day Life Drawing - ADVANCED - with Felicity Lovett-

Felicity will be teaching two separate all-day workshops in Classical Life Drawing covering essential techniques to address the wonder of the naked form.  This is the first , intermediate class.


The fine art of figurative drawing is as old as art itself, and Felicity will once again give participants the opportunity to expand and develop their own skills in Classical Life Drawing, working in various media in these comprehensive yet friendly and fun sessions.



Intermediate:  Friday 22nd November 2019   Time: 10am – 4pm. 

The Intermediate workshop is for those with a little prior experience and some basic drawing skills. It will help participants relax and get acquainted with a range of techniques to capture the human form. Through learning correct observation and awareness of key visual elements and structure in the figure, you will see more clearly, gain confidence and enjoy your work more.

Please note the change in registration and cancellation policy.

Due to some people reserving places in classes and failing to appear without a cancellation or notification and in some cases no payment, others who were on a waiting list missed out. It also has a financial impact on the Society as we still have to cover tutors fees and other related costs.

Unfortunately the actions of some people has resulted in a review of our cancellation policy.

In future, if you are registered for a workshop your fees should be paid 7 days before the date to ensure you keep your place. If this poses a problem then please contact the workshop organiser via email at or call the President on 0409 545 994.
Refunds will only be issued at the discretion of the Committee.
