Event description


Lamington Drive is proud to announce Looking Glass, a new series of life drawing and observational still-life digital drawing events.

Each participant will be provided with a 12.9" iPad Pro + Apple Pencil for the duration of the two hour session, during which time we will be using the Procreate drawing app to go beyond the existing mediums and tools of traditional life drawing classes. Session activities will vary from more structured activities to completely independent exploration and will vary depending on the show in the gallery.

For classes listed below as 'life drawing' we'll provide a life model (nude figure) and for classes listed as 'still life drawing' the sessions will be observational with inspiration and subject matter drawn from the current exhibition, as well as, additional props.

Our upcoming sessions are as follows:

Thursday October 12, 6.30–8.30pm – Life drawing
Thursday October 26, 6.30–8.30pm – Life drawing
Thursday November 9, 6.30–8.30pm – Still life drawing
Thursday November 23, 6.30–8.30pm – Still life drawing

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to bring my own iPad/Tablet?
Nope! We will provide everyone with a 12.9" iPad Pro + Apple pencil. Please note you will need to leave a copy of a current Photo ID to be provided with an iPad. If you wish to BYO device, that is of course fine.

Is the venue wheelchair accessible?

How do I get to the Gallery?
Public transport is your best bet, with the Smith Street trams a two minute walk. Limited off-street parking is also available in the area.

Will chairs or seats be provided?
We will provide stools for all participants.

What if I don't know how to use an iPad or Procreate?
For those new to the hardware or software, basic instruction will be provided on site from a dedicated tutor, however we would suggest an entry level knowledge to iOS as a prerequestite. Basic iPad Tutorials can be found here. More information on Procreate is available here.

Is this event suitable for children?
Our life drawing events will all feature nude models and may not be suitable for those under 16 years of age. Still life drawing events are all object based and all ages are welcome!

Do I have to show my work to other people?
Sessions will end with a short group critique which is completely optional. (But really, that's one of the best parts!)

Indeed! You can email yourself a copy of your work at the conclusion of the event.

I have more questions!
