Life Drawing & Portraiture

Our Life Drawing and Portraiture sessions are held at the Kogarah School of Arts with professional models. 

Most of our sessions throughout the year are for Life Drawing, but during the winter months, our evening classes are replaced with Portraiture sessions.

We have two classes each month:

Evening Session:  6:30pm to 8:30pm.
Held on the second Thursday of the month.

Morning session: 10:00am to noon.
Held on the fourth Thursday of the month.

Cost is $15 for SGAS members and $20 for visitors.

These sessions are still held on the second Thursday of each month, from 6.30 to 8.30pm.

Here are a few photos of our Portraiture session held on the 9th May.
