Painting Classes at Binders - New Price Structure Effective July 14

This is an FYI for the students of Charles' Tuesday painting classes at Binders in Atlanta.

Binders has put into place a new incentive feature to encourage early registration for class sessions. If you sign up more than 2 weeks prior to the beginning of the class session, the usual price of $140 applies. However, if you wait and sign up after the 2 week cut-off date, a $15 late registration fee will be added to your total.

Charles' next class session begins July 27, so the late registration fee will kick in on July 14. If you plan on attending the July 27-Aug 31 session, sign up on the last day of class of the current session to avoid the late fee.

Three of the classes of each 6-week session will include work with a live model in both the day and evening classes. Dates have been set through the end of this year, so you'll have time to plan ahead.


Painting - Design and Technique
Tuesday afternoons (1-4 pm) or evenings (6-8:30 pm)
$140 for six weeks
sign-up 2 weeks early to avoid $15 late registration fee

for intermediate and advanced painting students
$350 + $50 model fee

Don't miss this great opportunity! A Thursday evening demonstration followed by three full days of painting the figure from life in a focused group atmosphere with one-on-one instruction.

Underlying structure will be addressed while emphasizing the importance of artistically bringing the figure to life on canvas. Skeletal study aids of the body and head will be available for aid in observation. Students will concentrate on the sculptural relationships within the figure and selective interpretation on the canvas.
