Life drawing sessions in Hong Kong

Tuesday night life drawing sessions in Hong Kong have been organized since September 2011 by French artist Philippe Charmes. As an open workshop, everyone is welcome, from beginners (there are many) to advanced artists. Everyone is very respectful and willing to share.

Time: 7.30 – 9.30pm, every Tuesday night;


8/f, 400 Portland street. Prince Edward station.
1 minute walk from Prince Edward MTR exit D, on the left, past the Isuzu dealership, email for the door code or tell the guard you go to drawing class on 8th floor.

Please bring your own drawing material, such as paper, pencil, watercolor...

Self-teaching class: drawing starts at 7:30PM and ends around 9:45PM (sometimes a bit later). Come early if you want to get a good spot (especially if you'd like to be drawing on a table). Doors open at 7:00pm. We usually overstay to discuss the drawings and exchange impressions and advice.

Working with male and female models, short poses mostly (2 to 20 minutes), gesture depends if the model is into it or not (many dancers, actors and performers models).

Fee: HKD$200 per session (two hours), HKD$150 for students

Participation notice: please send e-mail to for inquiries and details about the sessions.
