Drawing of the human figure from observation of a live model

* These classes are temporarily on hold due to the current pandemic, please check back next month for an update.

​Adults (19+) Sketch and draw from a nude art model in a friendly and relaxing environment. Our models are professional figure drawing models, who have a wide range of experience including modeling at NSCAD.


With the current pandemic, we have carefully upgraded our studio to make it safe and comfortable for participants to enjoy life drawing. Our model will be posing behind plexiglass on a raised platform and participants will have their own plexiglass cubicle, to keep everyone separated. Our class size has been reduced to meet regulations and we have a zero contact policy. Which means, everyone must abide by the social distancing policies. In addition, we have distancing floor decals, wall mounted hand sanitizer and disposable masks, provided for those who wishes to wear one. We also encourage you to bring your own reusable mask to avoid waste.

Please note: This is a non-instructed class & ALL skill levels are welcome! Students are expected to bring their own art supplies. Suggestions: sketch book, pencil and eraser. Desktop easels are provided.


During this class, participants will have the opportunity to practice their drawing skills and hone their knowledge of human anatomy, perspective, and dynamic poses.


Never been to a life drawing class before and are nervous about attending? Don't be! Our studio staff are friendly and easy-going, which make this experience comfortable for people from all walks of life. You don't need to have strong drawing skills to attend, we have students of all skill levels.

Our only requirements are that you are respectful at all times, arrive 5 minutes before the class start time. Doors will be locked promptly at the start time for the models privacy. Therefore, if you are arrive late you will forfeit your ticket to this class. Phones and filming device are strictly prohibited, to be used during the class.
