Community & culture


Inclusivity is fun! So is drawing! Come along and join this casual, beginner friendly queer social art class where you can relax, mingle and learn some life drawing skills. By inclusivity, we mean celebrating diverse bodies, but also diverse artists with any range of experience – even if you’ve never done any drawing before, this class is for you.

No art experience required – just come and have a wonderful time!

This event will be half social chats with a bunch of like minded queer people and half fun, educational and interactive workshop.

All workshops are taught by queers, for queers.

What will we cover?
This is part class, part queer social, so there will be time both for drawing and for meeting like-minded queer pals in a relaxed environment. The class portions will feature our model Fern doing a range of short poses, with instruction on easy tips to help beginners get used to life drawing, and more experienced artists to expand their style. We’ll be focussing on enjoying the experience of drawing and celebrating how cool the human body is in all its forms over creating perfect artworks. There’s no such thing as a bad drawing.

All materials provided.
