As a program initiated last year, Scituate Arts Association will be holding weekly outdoor portrait/figure workshops at the Ellis campus. These will be held on Wednesday afternoons, from 2 to 5 PM, weekly!  The first workshop will be held June 2nd and will continue through to at least Labor Day weekend. The cost is $10 per SAA membership, $15 for Non-members.  The workshop was initiated by Bob Beaulieu,  last year to maintain social distancing, outdoors , yet still have the experience of working with a live model.  This year, maybe the social distancing is not quite as important, but it's still a great way to hone your figure-painting skills and enjoy a pleasant afternoon outdoors creating new artistic compositions.

Email notifications will be sent weekly for reminders, but do suggest that you contact Bob at  

 Bob@beaulieudesign.com to notify him of your intention to join upcoming sessions  and to ensure you are included on the portrait emailing list.
