Held on the last Tuesday of every month, from 3pm to 5pm, the Sketch Your Cake art class is all about learning the basics of traditional food art in the informal and relaxed surrounding of Sydney restaurants and cafes which serve high tea. Forthcoming February and March events will be held in the opulent Tea Room - Gunners' Barracks, Mosman.*
This fresh new take on conventional group art classes was developed by the talented Erin Hill, who hosts a range of art classes suitable for all levels - even if you have no experience, which makes them perfect to sign up as an individual student or with a couple of your good friends.
As mentioned, the Sketch Your Cake class is held in an esteemed restaurant or cafe serving high tea. In these stimulating venues, Erin will teach the group of budding artists the basics of drawing and sketching. The focus of the artwork will be the delicious high tea itself; a colourful assortment cakes, tarts and pastries, in varying shapes and sizes. You can choose to draw one food item or all - it is completely up to you.
During the two hour event, under Erin's guidance, the group will build their respective artworks in their sketchbooks; at first using a black pen to create shape and texture and then using vibrant watercolour pencils for a finishing touch of colour. And then, after all the hard work, the group can then indulge in the various delights with fellow class members.
Like Erin's other art classes, the Sketch Your Cake is taught in an encouraging environment - these classes are designed to be fun for all and they are just sociable as they are informative and educational.
The Sketch Your Cake art classes are held in groups of 8, so bookings are highly recommended, particularly if you want to make a booking for 2 or more people. To make a booking, simply contact at firstname.lastname@example.org.
They current price is $65 per person** and all you are required to bring is an A5 ringbound sketchbook and one or two black waterproof pens, preferably number 2 & 3. Watercolour pencils and water brushes will be provided.
