ABOUT WORKSHOPS AND LECTURES

Figurative Workshops

BRENTWOOD ART CENTER - I am proud and excited to be celebrating the 5th anniversary of the uninstructed figurative workshops at Brentwood Art Center. Five years ago, due to L.A.'s brutal real estate market, a string of artists lost their studios, sadly ending most of the Westside's figurative workshops. I approached BAC about allowing me to organize and run an uninstructed figurative workshop. This non-profit art school generously allowed our workshops to be part of their community outreach program. Affordably priced and welcoming to artists of all levels, we offer a weekly workshop with short poses, and a weekly oil painting workshop with one long pose. Los Angeles is home to the best art models in the world, and we celebrate the beauty of all skin colors, races, ages and sizes through the models who pose for us. I customize a playlist for each model according to their musical taste, so every workshop's music is different and we never get bored. Best of all, our workshop artists and models are a lovely group of people who I feel very lucky to call my art community.


Brentwood Art Center is a non-profit Los Angeles art school that was founded in 1971. www.brentwoodartcenter.com 13031 Montana Ave. (at 26th St.) Los Angeles, CA 90049  Tel: (310) 451-5657




CIACLA (CONTEMPORARY IRISH ARTS CENTRE LOS ANGELES) -  You wouldn't guess from my accent that I'm an Irish citizen. And I'm probably the only Broussard who can make that claim. For the past two years I've been on both sides of the pond talking with the wonderful and generous people at CIACLA about creating and running a monthly uninstructed figurative workshop. CIACLA's newly opened art center at Bergamont Station has been well worth the wait. Supporting an exciting variety of visual and performed arts, CIACLA opened its doors June 15th with a stunning interactive performance art installation. Poetry, music, films and more are still to come on the June calendar. Even though CIACLA is a nonprofit and relies on our donations, it was CIACLA's idea to offer our drawing workshops free of charge. - This generosity makes me proud to be Irish. - CIACLA hosts uninstructed figurative drawing workshops with live models at Bergamot Station, Suite B1 on the last Monday of each month, 10am - 1pm..


CIACLA (Contemporary Irish Arts Centre Los Angeles) opened June 15, 2019 as a non-profit arts center which supports Irish and local artists in multidisciplinary program of visual arts, theatre, performance, dance, music, literature, design, film. and comedy.  Suite B1, Bergamot Station, 2525 Michigan Ave, Santa Monica CA 90404.

Lectures

THE GETTY CENTER - The new year began with me adding an exciting new feather to my cap. I have been organizer for a monthly class series presented by the painter, art historian and teacher Zhenya Gershman at the Getty Center in Los Angeles. I had the pleasure of attending what I thought would be a one-off Drawing With the Masters lecture by Zhenya at the Getty Center. I was exhilarated by Zhenya's wealth of knowledge and her gift for speaking, and urged her to create a series of lectures. Zhenya is peerless in having mastered wearing all three hats of artist, art historian and teacher, thanks to her extraordinary talents along with years of extensive research and study.
