Our wildly popular First Friday series offers two art options: regular fave Licensed To Draw (and Paint) and the hot ticket item, Licensed To Watercolour. Held on the first Friday of the month, these are a great nights out to socialize and brush up on your life drawing and watercolour skills.
Licensed to Draw (and Paint)
These drop-in life drawing and painting workshops featuring “adult libations,” a prime spot in front of a life (nude) model and the opportunity to unwind from the week as you settle in to draw or paint. Working with artist and DVSA instructor, Ward Shipman, you’ll hone your skills through short sketches and longer poses. Instruction provided, if needed. Ideal for beginners to advanced artists.
Licensed To Watercolour
Join us for a low-key evening as you experiment with watercolour techniques (wet over wet, wet over dry, pastel resist, salt technique and blending) and create a mixed-media abstract painting and/or cards using your own intuition and creative freedom. No experience necessary and all levels welcome. Licensed cash bar with light snacks available. Bring some brushes, paper and a basic set of watercolours.
