Sundays, (bi weekly) 11.00am - 2.00pm
February 5 - June 11, 2023

Come join us to practice your drawing skills in a friendly, non-competitive environment. We alternate professional models that will pose unclothed, aiming for a diversity in age, gender and body shapes. This group is for both amateur and experienced artists, and we welcome all skill levels.

Can’t get enough of life drawing? Why not come to our brand new CityScape Date Night series on the first Thursday of each month. Sandrine will be joining us as a special at our Drag life drawing night, where well be experimenting with fun gesture drawing techniques of our wonderful drag model(s)


The 3-hour session will have a series of short poses to warm up ( 1 and 2 minutes) and a few long poses (5 minutes to 15-25 minutes).

What should I bring?

We have the life drawing essentials : chairs, many easels and a few drawing donkeys, music…
Bring your drawing materials, paper and a board. Our artists are using pencils, charcoal, ink, pastels, watercolor… The poses in the regular sessions are too short to have time to paint with acrylics or oils.

We will have a break in the middle of the session so you are welcome to bring some food for yourself or even something to share.

If you have a light portable easel, you can bring it too.
