Life drawing is taken to a whole new — and extremely adorable — level at this latest session by Cork and Canvas. The paint and sip company will once again take over the Wild Life Sydney Zoo at Darling Harbour, this time in the lead up to Valentine’s Day, for a couple of cuddly nights with its resident koalas.
Taking place on Friday, February 11 and Saturday, February 12, the experience starts off with after-hours access to the zoo, where you’ll have time to wander around the closed premises. Then head to the koala rooftop, where paint stations will be prepped for your two-hour session with a local koala and his keepers. Apart from creating a koala-inspired masterpiece, patrons will have access to bottomless wine, beer and sparkling, plus grazing platters, canapes and tapas throughout the night. And, yes, selfies with the star marsupial are encouraged.
Tickets cost between $195 each and are very limited, with previous sessions selling out.
