The theme for this week's Drawing Social is: figures and fashion. We'll be exploring basic drawing techniques related to body proportions, gesture drawings and clothing.

Absolutely no creative skills necessary! This event is for you if you want to:

  • Meet new people in Melbourne
  • Practise drawing figures and clothing
  • Practise your conversational skills

"So is this a workshop or a social event?"

It is both! If you've been to a paint and sip event, this is the drawing equivalent (draw and sip!), with a little more interaction between attendees. Each session will have a different theme, which will guide the social activities that accompany the drawing exercises. There will be a lot of talking, a lot of drawing, and some drinking.

If you've been drawing for a while as a self-taught illustrator and want to deepen your understanding of figure drawing, you're welcome to bring along any sketchbooks to receive feedback from our host artist.


Classe Petit focuses on the journey, not the destination. In our class, we don’t talk about what’s “correct” or “proper”; we encourage free explorations of ideas and techniques, which very often leads to discovering a whole new world of possibilities!

This was a fantastic class taught by a knowledgeable and approachable teacher. Everyone of us, whether we had art experience or not, walked away with some new skills, and tips. I’m not a practising artist by any means, but I was made to feel extremely welcome here. I’ll definitely be back.

Great class to break a drawing block! You're teacher is friendly, kind and accommodating.

What a wonderful morning. There were a number of activities and tips to draw. I have always had a problem with body proportions.....the templates that Shengyilee had available were superb, plus feedback to improve, positive aspects....just loved it.
