See Brisbane as youíve never seen it before with these Drawing for Beginners classes.

Time: Saturday / Sunday 9.00am
Duration: 3 hours
Location: Saturday Southbank / Sunday West End, Brisbane

If you think youíve seen everything Brisbane has to offer, why not try looking at it through an artistís eyes?
It doesnít matter how long it has been since you last put pencil to paper, Southbank's cultural precinct will inspire and nurse your inner creative spark. You will cover perception and proportion, line, tone and value and so much more.

Alternating each week, try your hand at various drawing techniques, either on a walking class, or at a sit-down venue:
- Pencil landscapes - Saturdays, walking;
- Pastels still-life - Sundays, sit-down;
- Charcoal landscapes - Saturdays, walking;
- Portraits any media - Sundays, sit-down;

The walking classes for Pencil and Charcoal are comprised of mini drawing classes at unique locations around Brisbane, capturing what you see from direct observation onto paper. 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.

The sit-down classes for Pastel and Portrait are held at one venue for the duration of the class, and allow you the opportunity to really concentrate on learning and practicing your new skills with Pastel and Portrait drawing.

Class sizes are kept small so each participant will have a chance to interact with the host on a one-to-one basis. Participants will be provided with materials on the day, including paper, pencils, charcoal, and pastels as per the class subject.

During each class, a complimentary non-alcoholic beverage is also included as part of the class price.

Come along to Classie and learn another lifelong skill.

Any child under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

Please note: Bookings are essential. This class requires a minimum of four people to proceed.

The three hour class was well structured for beginners. Building student skill and confidence from highly scaffolded simple tasks to increasingly more complex independent tasks.

5/5 by Janine O'Donnell
Perfect for beginners. Our instructor was fantastic in explaining the basics of drawing. Really encouraging throughout the class, and spent one on one time with each person to ensure they understood the concepts and progressed throughout the class. Will definitely recommend the class to others!
5/5 by Karen Lawrie
The structure of the course is excellent for beginners. I enjoyed the focus on basic shapes as it shows you how to see what was in front of you is easier to see them and then draw them. The changing settings was a good idea as we could test our techniques and notice the different shapes. I also enjoyed the yse of pastels. The information sheets are very useful and helpful for practice time. Jenni is an excellent teacher and is very supportive and builds your confidence. I feel more confident and it was a fun course.

Jenni was excellent, very informative, attentive and passionate about drawing.The information pack had all we needed as reference material and maximised the time we had to draw. The different drawing subjects kept us all thinking.The email we received two days before was welcome.

I loved it. Jenni was such a good teacher, imparting her knowledge in a positive, easy going and patient manner. I hope there might be a follow up class to the beginner's in the future.

I thoroughly enjoyed it! Jenni was very supportive and encouraging the whole way. I learnt some new things about drawing and got to practise with various mediums. The resources we got to take away was good too. The small class size was great as well, as we could chat with each other and Jenni.

The class was amazing, Jennifer gave everyone so much encouragement, she was so well organised, as a total novice I felt that I learnt a great deal and had a very enjoyable morning meeting new people and having fun. Thanks Jennifer and Classie
5/5 by Helen Murphy
The timing, layout, movement between the locations, beverage at the final location, toilet breaks, weather: it was all fantastic! We were in the full-on sun at the first location, so the recommendation on the instructions about suggested items to bring if you like are valid. Having a blanket or chair to sit on is definitely a good idea, and a personal shade item (such as a hat) is recommended.
5/5 by April Lauer
Fun, informative, relaxing.
5/5 by Georgina Worldon
Excellent teacher in Jenni - very supportive and obviously cares about her students. Really liked how we learned some fundamental basics and got a taste of a lot of different styles and mediums.
5/5 by Louise Vincent
Loved this class from beginning to end. Jennifer gave me confidence that I could actually put something on paper. I think being outdoors and going to different locations was a great idea and also trying different mediums was so much fun. Thank you Classie for helping me develop a wonderful hobby. Loved the size of the group and the enthusiasm of the teachers.
