DATE 30th September
We are so thrilled to be hosting Life Studies with Melbourne based artist, Caroline Walls. This experience will bring together Carolines’s artistic knowledge and expertise and focus on the beauty, intrigue and divinity of female form as seen throughout her works. The class will be practical and cover topics such as blind drawing, continuous line and a modern approach to life drawing.
Everyone will leave with an understanding of line drawing practice, a chance to give it a go and some very generous gifts. We will be hosting the event in our Northcote warehouse, including a beautiful grazing table of fine cheeses and wine.

Caroline has had 3 solo exhibitions of here work, with the most recent two in 2017 selling out. She looks forward to presenting her fourth solo exhibition in 2018.
"With a foundation in design my artistic practice is grounded in a strong sense of colour play, line and form. I am inspired by everyday human experiences and the fluidity and movement of the human body. These artworks explore the female body and the reduction of its form as a way of heightening its expressive power."
