ADDITION TO REGISTRATION POLICY

Over the years classes have been cancelled at the last minute due to less than the six required number signed up. This causes not only an inconvenience to the instructor but also the students who registered. Therefore, PSAA is instituting an addition to its registration policy.  

Registration and Payments for regular classes and workshops must be in for a minimum of 6 students at least five days prior to the start of class. Reimbursements will be made to those who have paid for a cancelled class. There will be no cancellations or refunds after class starts.


Fees for the classes are $50 for members, $75 for non-members, unless otherwise noted.

Note: In the event of inclement weather, class schedules may change. If you have any concerns, please call Pat Pelletier at 609-971-8962. Thank you.

Scenes from Linda Coulter's recent 2-day Pastels Workshop
Below are photos from Linda Coulter's two day workshop. It was a large and creative class. Linda demo'd fruit the first day, then had us paint from three still life set ups.

The following week Linda gave each of us a black-and-white photo of our local marsh and assigned us to choose our color choices from the color wheel. There were several new artists - some from the Atlantic City area and some from Pennsylvania and North Jersey.
