Drawing Competition Deadline!

Our 4th Annual Sculpture Competition starts this coming Monday and we hope to see you at our public viewings on Monday & Wednesday 6-7:30pm & at our gala on Friday 8-10pm. RSVP for events at

While you're in the spirit of competition, remember that applications for our 2nd Annual Drawing Competition are due on June 15th. The competition will be held August 29 - September 2, 2011. Finalists compete for 40 hours over 5 days to draw a figure from life.

The competition is inspired by the story of Apelles and Protogenes, renowned painters of Ancient Greece, who were both rivals and advocates of each other's work. At GCA, the tradition of a precise and fine finish to drawing continues...

Darren Kingsley, crowned Apelles last September, is teaching the workshop, Long Pose Figure Drawing at GCA, July 5-9.

Will St. John, crowned Protogenes, is teaching the workshop, Drawing the Figure in White Chalk, at GCA, July 25-29.

Both of these workshops still have some availability, but I highly recommend that if you've been thinking about signing up for these or any of our other offerings, you do so soon, as we're filling up quickly! Email to sign up.
