Untutored Life Drawing & Portraiture Sessions

These sessions are untutored and suitable for artists who can work confidently on their own. All experience levels are welcome, for those who want to draw or paint the human form in a relaxed and quiet environment.

Artists need to bring their own materials. We supply easels and tables.

Non-members are welcome to attend.

No bookings are required. Cash or eftpos is to be paid to the class monitor on the day.

Please be aware that these sessions feature male and female nude models.

Artists must be 16+ and will need to show proof of age. Attendees aged 16 to 18 must provide proof of consent from a parent or guardian.

FRIDAY sessions 

Rob Scholten

Portraiture and Life group sessions each feature a single long pose for the entire 2 hour session. 

These casual sessions are the perfect way to spend a few hours before heading out for a Friday night in the city. Join us for either or both sessions at the Victorian Artists Society, a short walk from Parliament station and the 11, 12, 35, 86, 96 and 109 trams.

Be aware that sessions may include wine.
