What you'll do

We’ll meet at a very special city location that I have selected for the variety of architectural styles that are uniquely Melbourne. After a brief meet and greet, I'll share some drawing tips and start you off with a few quick exercises. In the 2 hours of sketching you’ll be able to begin a longer drawing of your selected style or subject. Afterwards we'll have time-out in a cafe to talk about your drawings over a cup of coffee or tea. Making your own drawing of Melbourne is a great way to remember your trip plus you can share it with friends and family - so much better than a touristy postcard!!
