About Studio Maverik Still Life Drawing Classes

Studio Maverik facilitates beautifully curated Still Life Drawing in Brisbane / Meanjin. These Brisbane Still Life Drawing classes are often themed and take direct inspiration from seasonal fruits & flowers. Our Still Life Drawing sessions are held in Fortitude Valley, at the charming arts venue, The Station Brisbane.

Still Life Drawing Classes with Studio Maverik take the tradition of Still Life Drawing and add a contemporary flare; incorporating lots of colour & texture into a playful scene of still objects. Our Still Life Drawing sessions centre around a maximalist arrangement of seasonal florals & botanicals, and a vast collection of everyday homely objects. Each Still Life session is visually unique with a focus on sourcing seasonal fruits and flowers. Our Still Life arrangements are intended to be harmonious with the seasons and in the tradition of Still Life Art, ever-evolving and never staying the same.

Draw inspiration from the glasswork by Lawn Bowls

???? Lawn Bowls glasswork is made through a continual process of observing how decorative objects enrich our experiences of domestic spaces. The bright imagery, colour and pattern put into Lawn Bowls hold the force of this conceptual questioning. Each Lawn Bowls piece is handmade in (Meanjin) Brisbane, Australia by Finn O`Sullivan. Every piece is unlike the last. Small irregularities and wayward details adorn each piece. Bubbles or wobbly edges that cannot be commanded are part of what makes glass a magic material to work with. @Lawn.bowls
