Melbourne is a picturesque city with views that breathe life into every aspiring artist. It doesn’t matter how long it has been since you last put pencil to paper, Melbourne will inspire and nurse your inner creative spark.
This class is comprised of several drawing classes at unique locations around Melbourne. Each location is specifically chosen by the host, whether it be for a great view, a particularly interesting landmark, or the opportunity for a lesson in technique. There will be a sit-down venue on the day for a chance to draw still life or portraits, and includes a complimentary beverage.
The itinerary varies from one tour to another, ensuring no two sketch crawls are the same.
Class sizes are kept small so each participant will have a chance to interact with the host on a one-to-one basis. A variety of materials will be provided on the day, including paper, drawing boards, pencils, charcoal, and pastels. A complimentary non-alcoholic beverage will be provided at the sit-down venue.
This class is open to all skill levels; no previous artistic experience is necessary. Bookings are essential.
Any child under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
Please note: This class requires a minimum of five people to proceed.
Come along to a Classie course and learn another lifelong skill.
Refund Policy: Full refunds given with 5 days notice. Dates can be changed with 3 days notice.
Please be advised that although we make every effort to ensure that we accurately represent Classie's service and products, venues are subject to availability, and we reserve the right to make changes to all classes.
I thought the Classie session was very interesting and I got to use mediums I have not used before, like the willow charcoal. I also enjoyed it because Lena was such a good instructor and very encouraging. 5/5 by Daphne Cheah 9-6-2017

I liked the various locations we visited. Ciarra, our teacher was good, explaining things as she went and offering support and advice. 5/5 by Rose Barrett 14-3-2017
It was a fun way to spend time drawing our city with a small group of people and incorporating exercises eg 10 second drawings, to add interest and challenge. It helps us realise that there are drawing opportunities everywhere and people enjoyed seeing us draw as a group. Our guide/teacher, Ciara, is lovely and made us all feel at ease whilst keeping the class interesting. Thank you. Theresa 5/5 by Theresa Mongan 13-3-2017

Very good....thoroughly enjoyed this introduction to sketching.
Hannah was very friendly, supportive and a great guide. Recommend to total beginners and also as a reintroduction to drawing if some previous experience.All materials supplied on the day.

What a lovely way to pass the day. Friendly helpful teacher. With good tips and words of encouragement.

Was great. Hannah provided just the right amount of guidance and teaching. Also very good interesting locations and talks about things round the city. This was really a fantastic session. I was not expecting to be able to use different materials and styles - that was very welcome. 5/5 by Laura Miles 5-12-2016
Hannah created a wonderful, non-judge mental and encouraging environment in which to start drawing. Her guidance was very helpful. A very pleasant way to spend Sunday morning, thank you. 5/5 by Joy Bell 21-11-2016
I loved it - Hannah was wonderful with my 11 year old nephew who had more initial talent than I and was my inspiration for this booking. And me, a complete beginner not able to draw stick figures...I surprised myself. i loved the 3 locations, I loved the gentle nature of Hannah, I liked she was open for whatever you wanted could happen. it was a lovely day, so thankyou. I will never say i can't draw as i proved I just haven't given it a go! Really eager to explore this further now given the fact I managed to draw 4 pictures...an inspiring day 5/5 by Nicole Fernley 21-11-2016
Fun and interesting. The facilitator was knowledgeable and attentive 5/5 by Julieanne La Rocca 21-11-2016
