Paint a House Portrait with Jean Broden

September 11 @ 6:00 pm - October 2 @ 8:00 pm

Create your own portrait of a house (or any building)

Paint a house portrait!

Over four classes, students will learn the basics of perspective drawing and complete a painting of their home, or any building of their choosing. Students should come with printed photos of the building they will paint, or they can choose from some Philly landmarks provided by the teacher. No experience necessary.

If you took this class earlier this year, please refrain from taking this to give others an opportunity.

4 Monday Sessions, September 11th, 18th, 25th and October 2nd from 6:00pm-8:00pm

Tacony LAB Class Enrollment and Attendance Policy

The Tacony LAB’s classes are unique in Philadelphia: we do not charge tuition or any sort of fees for any of our classes. 

Our classes are popular and often have wait-lists. If you enroll in a class, please commit to attending it! 

How to enroll in a Tacony LAB class:

• You may enroll IN PERSON at the LAB beginning 3 weeks before a class first meets. Please check the “About” section of the LAB’s Facebook page for open hours or call the LAB at 267-686-7420 to hear the hours.

• You may enroll online using Eventbrite beginning one week before a class first meets (provided there are still spaces) by visiting our Eventbrite page: www.eventbrite.com/o/the-tacony-lab-community-arts-center-1…

• You may come to the first class and enroll at that time, providing space is available. For same day enrollment, please arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of the class. 

Only one registration per person will be accepted. Each student attending the class must register with their name and email address. Multiple registrations under the same name will not be honored.

If you enroll ahead of time and do not attend the first class, you will be removed from the roster and your place will be offered to another student. 

If you need to miss subsequent classes or decide you no longer wish to attend, please notify the LAB by phone call or email ahead of time. 

If you do not notify the LAB of absence or withdrawal, you will not be able to enroll in another class until 3 months have passed.
