A status update for UWA life drawing


Greetings all,I hope the new year has been treating you all well!

Well, I had intended to start this email by letting you folks know that I was putting the UWA sessions with their new Thursday night time slot on hiatus till the end of the first semester due to a variety of reasons (figuring out times with the new job, the boy having just started school full time and being unable to book just a single venue for the beginning of the year meaning we would have had to move around a bit which would be really annoying).

But I am having to let you folks know that we won’t be back at all.

Unfortunately due to circumstances out of my control, I will not be able to continue the sessions at all. So this means the end of the UWA drawing sessions I’m afraid.

But hey, at almost six years of running, that’s over five and a half more than I thought it would last!

So thank you everyone for coming on out over the years, putting up with my terrible taste in music, and allowing me to cram you full of biscuits and lollies (of which I still actually have quite a few packets/biscuits of… perhaps starting a diet two weeks ago wasn’t a good idea…)!

I will continue to keep this website up as a resource for people to find venues in the city, learn about instructed drawing classes and whatever else is going on.

Until next time folks, Take Care!

– Christopher

  1. That’s sad to hear đŸ˜¦

    Let me know if I can do anything (staff get discount on some venues I think).

  2. Chris, this is very sad news. Well done for holding the space for so many years! May I publish your post on my website blog?

    with best regards


    • Hi Peter, sorry about the delay. Yeah it was a good run while it lasted!
      Feel free to repost away. Also, if you have any special events or change to your format in the future feel free to let me know and I’ll share it on here.

  3. Sad news, Christopher, but thanks for hosting the wonderful UWA drawing sessions. x

    • Thanks Tracy!
      And I was incredibly sad to hear this week that you sessions won’t be continuing either!

      • Aw you’re very kind! Yeah, Lazy Susan’s were fun, and we had some great supporters, but it wasn’t exactly economical! But we’ll see. Might try for a special drawing afternoon in Winter. Thankyou for all your support Christopher!

  4. Sad to see the end of an era. Thanks for hosting, let us know if you start up again.

  5. Thanks for everything Chris, all the best.

    PS I was a big fan of your taste in music.
