Week 11

The Thursday and Friday classes will meet at the Arboretum. 

Please check your supply list and prepare your palette BEFORE arriving at the Arboretum.  Be sure to have adequate water and two illustration boards ( heavy weight), for the value study, (about 3" X 5") and one for your color version,  (about 5 X 7').

Don't forget your student I.D.  It should be a sunny day, but cool in the shade, so  bring an extra sweater to be safe.  This will probably be our last outdoor session for the term.

See you at 9:30!
