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!
