The Drawing Social: Portraits of You and Me

Learn basic drawing skills. Beginners welcome!

Book Now (https://classepetit.weteachme.com/l/YMmDeuUr)


The theme for this week's Drawing Social is: faces and expressions. We'll be exploring basic drawing techniques related to facial proportions, expressions and portraiture.

Absolutely no creative skills necessary! This event is for you if you want to:

  • Meet new people in Melbourne
  • Practise drawing faces and portraits
  • Practise your conversational skills

"So is this a workshop or a social event?"

It is both! If you've been to a paint and sip event, this is the drawing equivalent (draw and sip!), with a little more interaction between attendees. Each session will have a different theme, which will guide the social activities that accompany the drawing exercises. There will be a lot of talking, a lot of drawing, and some drinking.

If you've been drawing for a while as a self-taught illustrator and want to deepen your understanding of portraiture, you're welcome to bring along any sketchbooks to receive feedback from our host artist.


Classe Petit focuses on the journey, not the destination. In our class, we don’t talk about what’s “correct” or “proper”; we encourage free explorations of ideas and techniques, which very often leads to discovering a whole new world of possibilities!

My best friend had gotten me gift vouchers for the class petit drawing classes. I am not an artist myself, so I didn't really know what to expect. But I had such a wonderful time! If you're looking to spend a cozy evening with light-minded people while trying your hand at drawing, this is just perfect. And Sheng is absolutely amazing! Kind-hearted and warm! I can't wait to go back!

Such an easy going class with a fantastic teacher. Sheng gives great advice but also allows all participants creative freedom.
