Bridgman Figure-Drawing BootCamp

Registration is closed

Registered Attendees Only:

Webinar begins in

Thursdays through Saturdays
July 9–August 1, 2020
Noon–2pm (Los Angeles time)

This is a bootcamp. You will survive it more easily than military bootcamp, but it requires serious work on between-class projects during solitary confinement in July heat.

The Participant Tier includes my feedback on your work during sessions and meetings. During crits, you will witness me transition from hard-nosed drill sergeant to nurturing medic.

SORRY — Participant Tier is SOLD OUT, but Observer Tier (below) still available.
(See special announcement box at bottom of page.)

The Observer Tier saves you money and includes all 24 hours of instruction. It doesn’t include crits, but as your drill sergeant from a safe distance I will encourage you to team up with your friends, invest your energy together in projects, and if necessary, kick each other’s butts.

What’s Included

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: If you missed out on the Participant Tier, I’m offering add-on feedback sessions in August. This is for registered Observers only and space is very limited. More info here (some details still TBA).

Buy This BookIf you don’t have a Bridgman collection already, The Complete Guide is the simplest and least expensive resource. That’s why we’re using it for this bootcamp.
