Limited Enrollment

Workshops are limited in size, allowing the instructor to give personal attention to each participant. Membership in BAGSC is not a prerequisite to registering for workshops. Non-members are welcomed for a small additional fee. Please contact the BAGSC Education Chair if you have any questions about the skill level required for the workshop.

Art Materials and Specimens

The workshop details page has a downloadable PDF of the necessary art supplies. Some instructors require specific art materials so they can show you their techniques; others may supply an optional list and encourage participants to bring the supplies they usually use.

Occasionally it is difficult to get various art supplies in the US. When that occurs, the instructor may bring "kits" to sell in class. Please order through the BAGSC Program Chair (listed in the class details) and bring cash to the workshop to pay for the kits.

Please bring a task light for lighting your subject (and your paints). Bringing an extension cord is helpful too. 

Location Rules

BAGSC holds workshops at a variety of venues. Many have strict rules regarding parking, food, drink, clean-up, etc. Please adhere to the venue's preferences. We want to be invited back. Carpooling, of course, is always encouraged.

Photography and Video

Some instructors do not mind participants photographing or videotaping their lectures and demonstrations. Others feel it is disruptive to the workshop and the participants. Please check with the instructor before taking any photographs or video. Make sure to get separate permission if you intend to post, rather than simply keep for your own use. Never photograph, videotape, or post an image of a child without the written consent of their parent/guardian.
