Enhance Your Experience

with a Studio or VIP pass

Studio Passes

A Chance to Practice What You’ve Just Learned With the Help of Top Master Artists Guiding You

The Studio Pass gives you access to our “World’s Largest Art Studio” which is a giant ballroom filled with model stands and models. You can pick the ones you want to paint or draw. Some will be in costume, others will be without clothes.

We’ve selected prominent faculty members to become studio mentors to assist you in your work. The goal is to try out the techniques you’ve learned during sessions so you can be sure to remember them. And have someone there to guide you if you need help.

A Studio Pass/modeling fee is $197 and there is a limited number available due to studio size.

Studio Time with Mentors and Models to be announced.

In addition, there’s open studio time without mentors or models present. Studio Pass holders are welcome to paint in the studio during these times. 

Please note:

  • Some models will be posing without clothing. No photos or video, please.
  • Studio access is only permitted for those purchasing and displaying a Studio Pass badge.
  • Artists must provide their own easels. Battery-operated easel lights are recommended (no power outlets will be available in the studio).
  • There may be evening sessions on other stages whilst the studio is open. Please consult the agenda.
