Beginning next week, Bryn Mawr’s Art Club will offer free art classes to all BMC students, faculty, and staff. All classes are taught by professional artists from the local community and will be held in the Arnecliffe Studio.

To be eligible for the class lottery, attendees must show up at the first day of class 30 minutes before class start time. Attendees should bring a small materials fee of $10 or $15 (for faculty and staff). Those unable to pay can instead volunteer their time in the studio.
