"All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up. ”
Through Lifelines and my pop-up Champagne & Charcoal classes, I would like to give grown-ups who may have strayed from their childhood creative selves, an opportunity to rediscover what it feels like to be an artist whilst confronting their hesitations of drawing the human form ... armed with charcoal in one hand, and a glass of bubbly in the other.
The classes are guided and offer individuals the opportunity to challenge not only their drawing skills, but how they look and see things in a completely uncompetitive environment.
Classes are suitable for ALL levels of experience, with novices possibly finding the most surprising outcomes.
If you would like to find out more, feel free to get in touch.

"Aneta’s teaching method’s were unique and effective. She challenged everyone to open their mind, and to see things in light and shade, rather than simply in conventional borders.
I walked in to the class as a drawer, and I think it’s not too bold to say that when I walked out, I was on my way to becoming an artist, or at least understanding art.
It is not often that one can see – quite literally – how much has been learned in the space of a couple of hours. I think this is valuable because it proves that people can develop skills completely outside of their comfort zone.
I expect that I will draw on this experience for confidence when I am next faced with performing a task that is outside my comfort zone.
I really enjoyed the class and I would be keen do a course. I think that doing things that are completely out of step with the rest of your daily routine helps to ensure a broad experience of life.
And of course, live art is a great reminder that beauty comes in many shapes and sizes."

Perth is experiencing a record-breaking heatwave!
We've had a run of 40˚c+ temperatures, spectacular unforecast storms and humidity which saps the very life from you the minute you step out of your air-conditioned bubble.
You would think we were all permanently in nothing more than tiny bits of cloth covering barely the essentials with all this heat ... in actual fact, I find myself grateful for my cardigan most days when in the office - irrelevant what the season outside might be.
But yes, the bikini's get their fair share of time in the sun. We do love the outdoors here ... and where better to run to during a scorcher weekend than one of our gorgeous beaches - even if recent rumors would suggest they are shark-infested!
I threw the sketchbook into my beach-bag as I ran out the door this morning ... turned out the laziness of Cottesloe was just right to catch Jacky still for long enough to get the drawing and capture the mood of our summer beach sessions ...
