Our community’s health and well-being is paramount to us and we encourage you to do everything in your power to keep yourself and others safe.

Cost: $90 ($80 BRAC Members)
No Instructor

We are opening our main gallery for 4 days of creating with your fellow artists. The theme for this week will be "Using a Limited Palette", although you can explore any project you'd like. The studio will be open all day, every day. There will be no instructor, but rather daily critique sessions to gain support and input from your talented fellow artists. Bring a new project or one in progress. Use your favorite medium, try new techniques, explore new materials and methods----all with a little help from your friends. Peer support will help solve issues and fuel your creativity.
Come early, stay late, leave for lunch or appointments. Take a break for any reason. You can leave your work mid-stroke and return to it later. No need to pack up or take materials back and forth.

REGISTER NOW! Limit 12 participants. Bring your own materials.

This class will be two smaller Bob Ross oil paintings of landscapes: a winter scene and an ocean scene.
