We are an enthusiastic group of artists who like to challenge ourselves drawing and painting live from the model. We work at our own pace without tutoring. Generally the model poses for two sessions and changes each fortnight. While some artists draw in pastels, charcoal and pencil, many of us paint in oils, water-based oils, acrylic or watercolour. We pose the clothed model on a raised dais with draped fabric backgrounds and a spotlight highlighting the head.

Bring all your own art materials. CAW provides easels, donkeys, small tables and chairs. Please arrive 10-15 minutes to set up. Put your name on the roster to provide a small plate for supper at tea time.

STUDIO TERM FEE: $30
Model Fee: $80 per term
CAW MEMBERS ONLY

Open for members with some experience as no tuition is provided. Effort is made to present portrait models in as interesting a way possible so as to encourage and challenge members of the group. Portrait sittings are usually for two weeks in order to give painters time to develop their work. Once a term two weeks are given over to painting a life study. Models are chosen from those persons who approach CAW, contacts of members and sometimes volunteers from within the group.

Apart from studio facilities, art materials are not provided.
