Info on the Bay City Art Center (BCAC) life drawing open studio series, from their recent email:
“On Wednesday, November 26th, Bay City Arts Center continues its life drawing open studio series. Studio time is from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m.; cost is $15 at the door and prepay punch cards are available at a cost of 5 sessions for $50. Studio sessions will continue on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month.
The life drawing sessions are open to the public; however, due to the comfort of the models, BCAC is only opening this class up to artists over 18 years of age. (Special permission may be granted on a case-by-case basis.)
The models will vary from session to session, and the three hours will be broken into the first half hour of quick sketch warm-up, followed by two longer sittings. Suggested supplies are as follows: newsprint pad, charcoal, pencil, and/or watercolors. There is room for most other mediums, from clay to canvas, space providing and depending on the number of participants. Come early to be set up and ready to create by 6:00 p.m.
For those artists who would like a more formal instruction, BCAC has the honor of one of our newest board members, Jason McAlexander, volunteering to lead lessons, give helpful tips, and coordinate the studio time.
Bring your canvas. Bring your charcoal. Bring your inspiration, and we’ll provide the muse! There is no registration fee and you can begin class at any time of the season. Contact Jason by email or at (503) 842-4082 if interested. For more information on upcoming events, contact BCAC at (503) 377-9620.”
