Life Drawing

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

The two-and-a-half-hour session combines live music and drawing to inspire creativity and allow participants to surrender to their surroundings.

Hosted by talented local artist Rebecca Cunningham, Life Drawing is an opportunity to draw the human figure in a fun, relaxed and supportive environment.

The workshops are held on the second Thursday of every month.

Models, live music, basic art materials and light refreshments are provided. Drinks available purchase at the bar.

All are welcome, whether you have drawn your whole life or never before. Come along and give it a try!

Karl S. Williams

Music like this – that embodies Karl S. Williams – is evoked at the mention of a certain place and time. It was born there, crushed from human experience, distilled with universal soul; shone with the essential human spirit to where it is at once unadorned and yet staggeringly beautiful. Like hope. That Williams couldn’t play a tune – and didn’t come from a family that knew how to make one – was irrelevant. It was too late. It was unavoidable. It was life and death. He recognised healing, and sought to know it backwards. He could do no other thing. Karl’s voice is made from that music; he is a conduit that freely bellows, whispers, soars and intones, across so many octaves, stories of yours and experiences you survived. He has no other choice.
