The drinking club with a drawing problem
Grey Eye Society - wine and art classes
Channel your artistic self and learn to draw and appreciate wines at this innovative class run by Grey Eye Society.

The five week course is suited for all levels of talent, from beginners to those wishing to expand on their drawing skills. Each week, a famous artist is selected and the techniques and styles of the artist are used by class participants to draw a subject or still life, guided by teacher Andrzej Nowicki.The chosen artists' life is interpreted by wine enthusiast Pete Lloyd, who matches a few wines for tasting during the class - a perfect pairing of drink and art!

I attended a class where the theme was "trade" on wine export. In art, the example of trade used was the influence of Japanese wood cuttings on French advertising posters. A guitarist entertained us while we drew him using the style of strong block colours and lines, learnt about three distinct wines, and of course tasted the wines as we drew, making for creative freedom.

Held every Tuesday from August 20th-September 17th (inclusive), 6.30pm-8.30pm, at Beyond The Pixel/Foolscap Studio, Level 3, 75-77 Hardware Lane, Melbourne, the five week course costs $280 which covers all drawing materials and wine tastings, so all you need to bring is a creative mind. Master classes for experienced artists, and those wishing to continue on from the initial class, are due to commence later this year.

With small group sizes and a friendly and inviting atmosphere, you are bound to make new friends and be inspired by other people's creative talents.

Not just about getting tipsy, but also about producing art.
