Bridgman Figure-Drawing BootCamp

Webinar is over
More Feedback Sessions Soon

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.

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.
