Fridays, October 20 – November 17, 2023

5-week Art Clinic with J. Jordan Bruns

This Experimental Drawing Art Clinic session is the anti-autopilot. There will be no chance for you to just “zone out” in class. The amazing news is that you’ll find incredible mark making in your “Out of Comfort Zone” drawings, a line so interesting you’ll wonder if you even drew it, and a new appreciation for creating distance between you and your work. You will be familiar with the drawing mediums, but how we use them will be anything but comfortable. Please note there is a $30 model fee paid in class. Class Level: beginner to advanced.
