Join Catherine Pilgrim for tutored Drawing Groups aimed at beginners and intermediate draughts-people looking to improve their skills in observational drawing. Work with Catherine and a small group of fellow students on exercises to improve ‘seeing’, while also reinforcing fundamentals such as gesture, tone and proportion. Working from Catherine’s light filled studio, we will work towards inspiring you to take your drawing further.
These highly successful and popular sessions have been running since 2014. Catherine Pilgrim learnt to draw in Australia and Washington DC and has been exhibiting for over twenty five years. Her work can be found in Public and Corporate Collections including the National Gallery of Australia, Geelong Regional Gallery and the Australian War Memorial. Catherine’s approach is skill based while also aligned with the inclusive philosophy of the Campaign for Drawing, who promote drawing to learn, rather than learning to draw. Catherine’s Masters of Fine Art research (Monash University) was based around the subjective process of making a representational drawing. Catherine has also completed a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment.

Covid Safety There will be a maximum of four participants in the group to keep us distanced as much as possible. Tables will be well spaced. During warm (not windy) weather we can open the large doors for excellent ventilation. The studio now also has an air purifier. Please bring a mask - hand sanitiser to be used on arrival. Please don't come into the studio if you have symptoms. We can Zoom or Skype you in. It is expected that everyone will be vaccinated unless you have an exemption.
(Please Note - In case of lockdowns we can run the sessions via Zoom - this is the only way I can run these sessions with any viability. I do my best to ensure you have the best possible online experience. Please discuss this with me if you have any concerns. It is hoped that we won't have to worry about lockdowns so much from here on.)
I’ve done three terms of drawing classes plus a weekend intensive with Catherine - she is a fabulous teacher. She has a focus on technique and confidence but in a way where you just keep ‘putting lines on the paper’ and before you even realise it, you’ve developed more skills and talent. I never thought I could draw; I hadn’t even tried for 20 years. But Looking back over my progress with Catherine I can see that I just needed the right teacher to unlock my willingness to give it a go and guide my hand and sight. Her classes are also FUN and there is always the most delicious cake. Can’t recommend highly enough - Alyssa June 2022
