On Wednesday nights Anthony Holdsworth teaches an ongoing painting class in our spacious gallery.
Classes are every Wednesday from 6:30 PM until 10:00 PM. Students must pay for one month in advance but may enroll at any time.
These classes are appropriate for beginners and advanced students. We focus on the relationship of contemporary color theory and apply the science of visual perception to the depiction of light and space.
Classes cost $150 a month. Paint, solvent and easels are included in the price (see below for a list of supplies students are expected to bring.) There will be a live model about a third of the time, when we have a model there is an additional fee of $6 per class to help cover this cost. You are welcome to observe part of a class. For further information or to enroll, inquire at the bookshop.
a canvas, or canvas board, or primed plywood I recommend small sizes for early classes (from 15"x 20" to 18"x 24 ")
a palette knife - I recommend an "Italian painting knife" which looks like a miniature trowel about 3/4" wide by 1.5" long, but this type is not absolutely necessary
rags or a roll of blue shop towels available in hardware stores

The San Francisco Writers Workshop provides a forum for writers in any genre to share their work-in-progress and receive constructive critiques from other writers. Founded in 1946, the SFWW met for many years at the San Francisco Public Library and moved to Alley Cat in 2014.
Workshop meets every Tuesday evening from 7 to 9 p.m.
Attendance is free and open to all interested writers.
