Robostrar is the online ticket sales and session registration system for Basic Inquiry, the Vancouver Life Drawing Society. You can use it to purchase and register for life drawing sessions we offer in our Main Street studio.
At present, online registration for studio drawing sessions is mandatory. During COVID restrictions, no drop-in artists are permitted in the Studio. Robostrar keeps track of session enrollment to guarantee we operate only within our seating capacity, and provides us with contact-tracing information for all studio participants.
There are four parts to the Robostrar system. Once you’re set up with the system, you’ll spend most of your time in the third part:
To use Robostrar, you will need to log in to your existing account with your email address and password. Anyone is welcome to sign up for an account; all that is required is an email address at which you can be reached.
If you’ve logged in to Robostrar from a public or shared computer, when you’re done with the system, choose Log Out from the top navigation bar to disconnect your account from this computer until you next log in.
A ticket entitles you to attend one studio drawing session. You use a ticket when you register for a seat in a particular session. You can buy tickets individually, but it is less expensive to buy more than one at a time. The Purchase tab has several ticket bundles for sale.
A pass entitles you to attend as many sessions as you wish within the valid time period covered by the pass. Passes are only available to Members of the Vancouver Life Drawing Society, and appear for sale on the Purchase tab if you are a registered member.
Robostrar tells you each time you log in how many unused tickets and valid passes remain in your account. If your pass expires or you run out of tickets, return to the Purchase tab to buy more. Online purchasing follows these additional rules:
Use the Register tab to sign up for individual sessions. This tab lists all sessions we are offering from today to several weeks in the future. If you have tickets or a pass, click Register Seat to register for a specific session of interest to you. Once you have successfully registered a seat in a session, good work! You can show up at the Studio for that session and your place in that session is guaranteed.Seat registration follows these rules:
Please only register for sessions you sincerely plan to attend, and cancel promptly any registrations you are certain you can no longer attend. Due to COVID restrictions, our sessions have extremely limited capacity, and any seat you have registered is a seat in which some other artist can no longer draw.
That’s it! If you have any questions about Robostrar, you can ask them by email here.
