On Location

We facilitate weekly 'on location' classes for those who would like to learn, create or cultivate outside of the classroom. Artists have long painted or practiced drawing outdoors, 'on location' sessions meet within Tucson, Arizona, or in the surrounding areas. Practicing direct observation from life, you will work with an instructor to sketch, draw or paint within a natural light setting.

On Location

The instructor will email details, prior to the first day of class.



Once enrolled, we will:

  • Notify you prior to the day of the session via email or phone
  • Give detailed instructions on where to meet 
  • Provide you with a logistics list for any portable studio equipment or special supplies needed during the session


You will

  • Be responsible for your own transportation to and from the site
  • Email the instructor directly before the class begins for any special needs, questions, or concerns.
