Life Drawing for Beginners

An evening of life drawing with wine and friends!

Over 10 people have attended this class


This is a tutored life drawing class suitable for beginners. A variety of drawing tools will be provided but you are always welcome to BYO sketchbook and materials.

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

  • Practise drawing figures with a live model
  • Learn tips on how to approach an untutored life drawing session
  • Take time out for yourself with a relaxing, therapeutic hobby
  • Meet new people in Melbourne!


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!
