"Metro Arts", 

109 Edward St

Brisbane QLD 4000

Head up the stairs to Level 4!

We are lucky enough to operate out of Metro Arts in the CBD of Brisbane.  Our venue is surrounded by a number of great pubs and bars and are only a few blocks from the Brisbane River. All make great meeting spots before or after the party!

What's Included?

Our staff are chosen for their personalities and are well practised in keeping a large group of ladies entertained. You will not find anything else like this in Brisbane!


This package includes:

  • Two hours of life drawing fun and learning!

  • Our professionally trained and enthusiastic female art tutor!

  • One of our handsome male models specially picked for being fit, courteous and friendly!

  • Exclusive DFL drawing-based party games which encourage interactivity between your group and keep everyone entertained and laughing while learning at the same time! 

  • All necessary drawing materials, huge A frame easels and all the charcoal and pastels you could want.

  • Private studio hire for your group. Our studio is conveniently located in the Brisbane CBD.

  • Plastic ‘glasses’, bottled water, ice bucket and ice are also included.



The Studio Parties use a sliding price depending on how many hens attend. The minimum booking for the studio is $75 per hen for 10 hens, but the more that attend the less you pay! As low as $55 per hen!   *This discount is only applicable if your party is fully paid for 2 weeks before your party date, otherwise the standard $75 per person fee will apply* 


For even lower fees, feel free to look at our "Home Parties" option in the menu.

Topless Waiter

If you want a little more eye candy or just someone to top up your drinks, we also offer a topless waiter!  He will help hand out food, and top up drinks, and be courteous for the duration of the party.  


This will just cost an extra $80 on top of the party price.


Taking pictures of each other is fine, but please respect the privacy of the models and do not take photos of them without their permission - these guys have jobs and lives outside of this, some of them are aspiring actors!  If you would like photos of the model or with the model, feel free to ask permission - this is up to the model.


However, the instructor will take group shots at the end, with the model included!


We recommend booking our professional photographer to shoot your event. Our photographer will take amazing and creative shots during your party and organise group photos with the model at the end.  This is a super low fee of $100 AND includes a CD filled with Hi-Res photos of your unforgettable evening.  You will NOT hire a photographer anywhere else for that fee!  You will have memories lasting a lifetime to share with friends!


Please be sure that you read and understand the following


  • Please advise if there are any food allergies if ordering catering

  • Please try not to drink TOO much before the party! By all means, enjoy light drinks! But our parties can fall to pieces when the ladies are feeling too giddy to follow instructions and ruining the night for those that do want to join in!

  • Photos cannot be taken of the model without his express permission

  • These figures are based on a 10 person minimum. The minimum booking is $700 which covers up to 10 people. The maximum number of hens that Drawn From Life can comfortably accommodate is 20.  If you have more, consider one of our "Home parties"!  However, in our experience, final numbers are often lower than expected, and nearly all parties are under 20 hens attending.

  • Bring your favourite music! You can plug your phone / iPod.  (We can even play those old CDs!)

Booking and Payment

  • A deposit of $50 is required to secure your booking. Deposit is deductible from your total cost.

  • The remainder of the fees must be paid by 14 working days prior your party date. The discount is only applicable if your party is fully paid for 2 weeks before your party date, otherwise a $70 per person fee will apply.

  • In the event of a short notice cancellation (2 weeks or less) by your party, liability for the full cost of the event shall be incurred by your group. If the cancellation is due to Drawn From Life, your payment will be fully refunded and we will re-schedule your event at no extra cost.

  • Payments can be made via direct deposit. Banking details provided upon request.
