Drop-In Sessions at Xchanges

We offer Life Drawing in our gallery. Our sessions include Wednesday daytime sessions and Monday evening Life Drawing sessions.

These are non-instructed sessions; all experience levels are welcome. It's a great place to meet other artists and hone your figurative skills in a supportive and creative environment.

Drop-in sessions are held in the gallery. Drawing boards, donkeys, sculpture stands and coffee provided. Participants provide their own materials.

For more information on the Wednesday sessions, call the contact number below. For general information, call Xchanges at 250-382-0442.

Long Pose Painting/Drawing Groups: held on Wednesdays

Long Pose:

10 a.m.–noon, longer if there is demand
with Male & Female models
$11 for non-members and $9 for members.

The model takes the same pose for three consecutive sessions. This way participants can do a 6-hour work, or shorter works. Participants can do a portrait of the model, if they wish.
Materials: the only restriction is against turpentines, odourless or otherwise, because even the odourless turps release emissions that affect some people.
