We begin with several quick poses to get the fingers moving, through to longer, extended poses after the refreshment break.

This is your opportunity to draw a range of short to longer poses from a nude model using a variety of materials.

All skill levels from professionals to first timers are welcome and no experience is needed.

Around half way through the session, there will be a 15 - 20 minute break for wine, nibbles and a chat.

Easels, boards, chairs, and tables are all provided by the studio. Bring whatever drawing materials you like or use basic materials supplied by the studio.

Doors open at 7 pm - please arrive early to set up your spot as we need to start promptly at 7:30 pm.

$25 per session

Welcoming environment.

Nick facilitated the life drawing class with expertise and confidence. He took time to help the students one on one and showed great control of the mediums he uses to give great demonstrations. Would highly recommend.

It was such a lovely evening - almost worth moving back to Victoria for.


I was able to learn about foreshortening in much more depth. I had no idea on how to do that when creating figures. He took the time to help and ensure we understood what we were to create."  Anne


Public Announcement

All classes at Saltwater Art Studio have been cancelled and the Studio will not be reopening before Term 4.

Protecting the most vulnerable in our society has to be the prority at the moment and as our Studio is located inside a community centre, we feel it best to keep the Studio closed for now.

All existing bookings will be rescheduled and we are looking forward to continuing with our program in the near future.

We continue to be guided by Council and the State Government advice and will keep you updated as we receive more information.
