In the Open Air with James Frederic Rose
A summer session class is being offered by Workshop Gallery Artists Foundation at Brooklyn Workshop Gallery:
IN THE OPEN AIR with James Frederic Rose
A series of classes focusing on plein air architectural and urban landscape work in the South Slope of Brooklyn. Brooklyn Workshop Gallery is in the historic district of Carroll Gardens, a district uniquely suited for outdoor work as the streets vary in architecture from the charming old world brownstones, working shops and churches to the industrial area where the neighborhood borders the Gowanus Canal and Red Hook.
The class is taught with a workshop atmosphere offered in either individual session or a 6-week series.
Class meets from 2:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. on Saturdays at Brooklyn Workshop Gallery.
Students may work through the afternoon until gallery closing time at 6:00. Students are welcome to use the studio space on Sundays for the duration of their participation and are encouraged to bring their own drawing, painting and paper materials though a large number of materials will be available for you to try for free and a few at low cost. Drawer space is available.
Do note that the gallery has a yard and you are welcome to continue working Saturday afternoon either in the yard or the studio. Coffee and tea is served on-site. Plenty of ice water is always available.
For more information, call gallery director Martine Bisagni at 718.797.9427 or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
This series is for all levels of practitioners. Children welcome if accompanied by a participating adult. Special pricing for children or a second person: two take an individual class for $45 or $250 for all 6 sessions (if paid in advance).
