This indulgent 2-hour sketching workshop is inspired by the MCA’s popular program Sundown Sketch Club, which books out months in advance. Led by Sydney artist Will French, the workshop series will take place once a month over winter in the MCA’s creative studios in the National Centre for Creative Learning, boasting picturesque twilight views of Sydney Harbour.
Using a diverse range of fine art materials, participants will be invited to explore their creative potential and experiment with still life and nude drawing, guided by personalised tips from Will French. They will respond to an ever-changing installation combining a model, fragrant fresh grapes, white flowers, juicy pears, brioche, hazelnuts and almonds – as a nod to the complex and delicate aromas of the Ruinart Champagne ‘R de Ruinart’.
For a truly decadent experience, each participant will enjoy a glass of 'R de Ruinart’, with nibbles and gourmet cheeses – a toast to Ruinart’s long-standing relationship with the arts.
