Event description


"All children are artists.
The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.”
– Pablo Picasso

If you've ever heard of our 'Charcoal and Champagne' life-drawing classes before, you know our sessions are fun and full of brain-bending challenges in a non-competitive, but supportive environment with other eager-to-learn 'budding artists'.

This special event will be designed for those of you in mind who might still consider themselves a 'beginner' but are ready to learn MORE and CHALLENGE yourself further.

You will LOVE what we have in store for you at this special full-day workshop.

Our full-day, large-scale 'Charcoal & Champagne' Drawing Workshop is the opportunity for you to now start exploring the 'how to' side of drawing ... and develop further skills and techniques to help you bring your 'hidden talents' to the surface and get your 'creative-thinking' brain buzzing!

You will also be given the opportunity to work on a 'BIG SCALE' - yes with large scale easels like a real 'master' in a studio setting.

The class will be broken up into 2 sections - the morning session where you will learn new skills and techniques, and the afternoon session, where you will start applying some of these new skills whilst drawing a life-model on a large-scale easel with charcoal.

  • hands on, learn new skills & techniques (morning tea provided)
    – including
    those dreaded hands, faces, feet and proportions

  • light lunch supplied along with a glass of French bubbly

  • drawing a life-model, apply your newly-acquired skills in a guided charcoal drawing session working in large-scale on easels

As always, we will be supplying pretty much everything, you just need to rock up with a smile and a sense of adventure !

  • Speedy-bird : $175 +BF per person
  • Standard : $195+BF per person
  • Workshop + pop-up COMBO OFFER : $244+BF per person.
    Secure a spot in our 'Full Day Workshop' PLUS attend one of our fun introduction into the 'Charcoal and Champagne' pop-up evenings & save. Whilst having attended a Charcoal and Champagne event previously is not compulsory to attend our Full Day Workshops, it is suggested as this is an introduction into the basics of 'creativity' and the 'creative process' which is useful as a progression.



Through our pop-up 'Charcoal & Champagne' classes, grown-ups who may have strayed from their childhood creative selves, are given the 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 through guided exercises, shift how they would normally 'look' and 'see things'.

• 18+ (nude model)
• Drawing materials included.
• Ideal for those with beginner level skills and those who have attended a Charcoal & Champagne life-drawing class previously
• Includes morning tea, light lunch with a glass of French bubbly.
• Location address emailed to ticket holders closer to the event date.
• Private groups, events & family friendly classes available on enquiry.

"Perth people, I highly recommend Aneta Wnek's Charcoal and Champagne life drawing classes. A fun & fantastic introduction for beginner scribblers. For those who've held a charcoal stick before it's a super enjoyable night of embracing creativity & reconnecting with your artistic self. Bubbles, nibbles, art materials & life model included." – Deborah

"Aneta thank you so much for an amazing night and experience. We all learnt so much and had heaps of fun as well. The photos are fantastic, we all look like real artists! We will definitely recommend your class to everyone. It really was a fantastic experience. You are totally amazing. X" – Vicki

"Had a fantastic evening at last night's charcoal and champagne class, what a lovely group of ladies and fantastic concept. Thank you Aneta for challenging my preconceptions and reawakening my creativity! I am very proud of my final piece and was amazed looking through all my drawings at the progression. Your enthusiasm is contagious :-)" – Juliet

"Ok, so drawing has never been a particular talent of mine. I sucked at it at school. Last night the beautiful and gifted Aneta Wnek enticed me to participate in her Charcoal & Champagne Life Drawing Class.

I admit to being extremely anxious about this - mostly about making a complete idiot of myself. Aneta held the class in a beautiful South Perth Foreshore home belonging to a friend of hers. She got us nicely relaxed with some bubbles and very tasty nibbles and then our model Amy arrived and the game was on. It was time to pick up our charcoal and draw!

It was an amazing two hours with Aneta changing our perceptions as to the lines, shades, shapes, proportions and flow we saw and encouraged us to be bold and "let go" and to transfer these to paper.

It was a sensational evening with a fabulous group of people. I know I'll never be an artist but I'm sure going to go to more of Aneta's Charcoal & Champagne classes.

They're challenging but so much fun!! Stepping out of one's comfort zone can be amazing. Last night was a big stepping out!

Keep an eye out for Aneta's classes and do yourselves a favour and go. Or better still instead of a night out with the girls arrange to have one at your home - your friends will love it! You will have an absolute blast. Thank you so much Aneta! It was fabulous xx" – Cheryl

"Perfect description for a perfect evening, Cheryl. It really would have been one of the nicest evenings I can remember for a long time - and while I proved I am not an artist - I REALLY enjoyed myself. Thank you so much again to Aneta. Soooo looking forward to the next one." – Lanna

"Thank you for sharing your passion and talent to look at the world through a different 'lense' it was a fabulous evening with great creative energy. Big hugs xx" – Jo

"What an amazing evening, thank you Ms Wnek for unleashing our artistic talents"– Angelina

"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."
– Kim, Highgate

"Thanks for a fun night ladies and to Aneta for teaching me a thing or two about drawing. I really enjoyed myself :)" – Larissa, Mt Hawthorne
