Life Drawing

Life drawing at HOTA combines a muse, music, and magnificent art.

Join us for a special Fireside session that combines live music and drawing to inspire creativity and allow participants to surrender their surroundings.

Curated by talented local artist Rebecca Cunningham you’ll learn to draw the human figure in a fun, relaxed and supportive environment.

Our models for the evening include contortionist Shannen Jones and Club Briefs favourite Brett Rosengreen both stunning entertainers who know how to strike a pose.

Live music will be performed by the band Lady Finger, with their foot stomping mix of unique rock and blues inspired melodies with raspy vocals. Often performing as a duo, Lady Band are bringing along some friends for the night to add to the fruity jams, assuring ear pleasure for all.

Basic art materials are provided. All are welcome – whether you’ve drawn for decades, or never picked up charcoal in your life. Come along and give it a try!
