Interested in developing your art skills? This class in Hornsby is a great introduction to drawing and painting the live model in a classical style.

It is suitable for artists of all levels and beginners are more than welcome. We go through things from the very start - but if it is your first time coming to a class like this we recommend you start with drawing before jumping into painting. You have the choice of painting or drawing from a life model or working on still life.

During the session, you'll be taught by professional portrait artist and two-time Archibald finalist Sally Ryan and award-winning painter Ben Ryan. It includes individual feedback as well as demonstrations and references to great artworks throughout history.

At the end of this unique painting workshop, return home with your completed artwork and the confidence to continue creating art in the classical style!
