Urban Sketching

Wednesday 1.00pm - 4.00pm

A group of enthusiastic sketchers who carpool to somewhere in the Wellington area and draw, sketch or paint where-ever they end up.  No major skills necessary, just a passion to draw what you see.  The group meets at 1pm in the Hutt Art carpark, carpool to a location, sketch for approximately 2 hours, meet at a nearby cafe for a drink and show-and-tell before hearing back to Hutt Art.  Check out our website:


Portrait Group

This group has been meeting for as long as the Society has been in existence.  The model usually comes for two weeks running.  It is a friendly group and it's amazing the quality of work produced.  Everyone uses whatever medium they prefer and we help each other if asked.  Please do come along if you are interested, you will be more than welcome.  Note - there is a fee charged for the model.
