Life drawing art classes at the Sydney Opera House


Forget hundreds-year old operatic productions on the Joan Sutherland Theatre stage in the Sydney Opera House: this month it’s all about art. A one-time-only event on 12 March, the most beautiful set in Australian musical production, the first act scenery for John Bell’s acclaimed production of Tosca, will open to the public for the first time ever for a one-off life drawing class. Teaming up with Darlinghurst Life Drawing, Opera Australia is offering budding artists the opportunity to attend a two-hour drawing class, located right on the set of Tosca in the Sydney Opera House. Designed by Michael Scott-Mitchell, Act l of Tosca is a spectacular reproduction of Rome’s stunning Sant’Andrea della Valle church. So warm up those fingers, get those creative juices flowing and prepare for one of life’s once-off experiences like never before. For more info and to book, go to the Opera Australia website. Time: 7:00-9:00pm Cost: $125 + booking fee

Draw naked people and drink wine in Sydney this July

When you learn to draw, it’s one thing to draw apples and oranges; another entirely to draw a human body. It doesn’t matter who you ask, though, it’s the thing that defines the skill of an artist. Throw in some wine and you have one super healthy exercise for the mind. This month, the Watson’s Bay Boutique Hotel will hold life drawing classes with merlot, where the hour-long drawing class will welcome both new and experienced artists seeking to hone their skills in drawing the human figure. The beachfront hotel’s edgy class will be hosted by artist Rachel Carroll, the northern beaches-born talent with 20 years’ experience in creating her own works and teaching others. Rachel will help students understand the human form and finesse their drawing technique. It’s a perfect exercise for those who want to open their eyes and improve their drawing, encouraging you to draw what you see, not what you think you should be seeing. Each $40.00 ticket will includes a glass of wine to help the creative juices flow plus all artistic equipment. See more at the WBBH Hotel website.
