Drop-in studio sessions

We provide easels, sinks, Wi-Fi, and free admission to the exhibition spaces (during regular operating hours). Bring your own materials. Note: These sessions are non-instructional and artists under the age of 18 must have parental permission to participate in nude life drawing sessions. 

An opportunity for artists to practice drawing from a live, nude model and build a social and artistic network by working amongst their peers.
