3-day nude figure drawing/painting workshop at the Art Studio/Atelier of Virgil Elliott. Female model, long poses. Attendees may work in charcoal or oils. Space is limited, so the class will be small, with each participant getting plenty of attention from the instructor. $350.00 for all three days, or $250.00 for two days.
The Art Studio/Atelier of Virgil Elliott is at 5320 Old Redwood Highway, Suite B, in the Orchard Shopping Center in Petaluma, California, just off Highway 101 at exit 476, 40 miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge. For the convenience of travelers, there are three motels within walking distance of the studio, the nicest of which is the Quality Inn, right across the street. Also within a few steps is a wide variety of eating establishments. There is bus service from the San Francisco Airport to Petaluma, and there is a Hertz Rent-A-Car office two blocks from the studio.
