Spring 2017 Schedule of Classes

Fair Weather or Figure

 

Class Start Date:  April 13, End Date: June 8

Days: Thursdays,   Time: 9:30 – 12:00pm

Don’t you hate being a plein air artist on those rainy days?  Well, this class is for you!  If the weather is sunny, we’ll work from the great outdoors!  When lousy weather is forecasted, we’ll work from the live model!  Optional indoor and outdoor class exercises and instruction will focus on drawing techniques and mediums.  Mandatory model fee of $5 per indoor day.  For more information about the curriculum visit www.jjbruns.com or email jordan@jjbruns.com. Minimum age 16.

Below is the tentative schedule of classes and is subject to change.  If the weather looks bad, we’ll meet at the Yellow Barn Studio to work from the live model.  Please make sure that I have your correct email on the first day of class.  I will let you know at least one full day in advance if we are meeting inside.
