Park Life Drawing #5

This is our fifth Park Life Drawing event and I am excited to be presenting Shamani Nair.

Shamani is an Indian Classical dancer trained in a genre known as Bharata Natyam,  an art form that combines melody, rhythm and expression. Dating back 2,000 years, this sacred art form originated from Tamil Nadu, a state in South India.

It will be a relaxed morning in an Arana Hills park under trees away from the maddening crowd!

There are toilets and water on-site.

When – postponed due to the weather. New date to be announced soon!

Saturday 4 July 2020, 9.30am-11.30am (please note this event is weather dependent and will be rescheduled in case of rain – or wind and cold temperatures!)


I will confirm the location with you when you register. (It’s not a mystery but a covid-safety plan!)



What should I bring?

It is important for each of us to be self-sufficient. Please bring your own:

  • seat/cushion/blanket
  • sun protection and insect repellant as the midges like artists who sit still
  • sketching gear – be aware you will be resting your drawing pad on your knees so A3 is probably the maximum size for comfort
  • fold back clip to stop the breeze flipping your paper
  • hand sanitiser

There are toilets on site and cafes close by but definitely bring your own sanitiser as there is none on site.
