OUR FACILITATOR

Louise (Lou) Klerks started running the Life Drawing class in 2008. The early years were at No Vacancy Gallery and 1000 Pound Bend. In 2016 Lou moved her class to the Nicholas Building where she established Missing Persons, a multi-arts space. For over a decade, she has taken great pleasure in facilitating the classes. Lou believes that her life drawing classes are a great place to meet like-minded people, build connections in the Melbourne arts community, and benefit from a sense of social wellbeing. Lou is proud to work with a range of highly skilled and professional life models who are central to this small operation. In addition to running the classes, she works as an art curator and vinyl DJ. You can find more from Lou here.
