Jill Banks Fall Classes at the Great Falls School of Art

Before my computer gets packed away ready to resettle in Fairfax ... momentarily ... I'm letting you in on the latest info on my Fall classes offered through the Great Falls School of Art.

Soon, hopefully, the registration page and this info will agree in dates, number of sessions, tuition.

"Florentine Square,"©Jill Banks 2014: While we won't be painting here, plein air class can get you ready to do so.
Still Life in Oils will be offered on Tuesdays, 9:30am to 12:30pm, September 16 to November 4 (8 sessions) with classes held at the Great Falls School of Art, 1144 Walker Road, Suite D, Great Falls, VA.  Class size is limited ... and generally fills quickly. Find more information on the class with a link for registration at

Plein Air Landscape Painting is offered on Thursdays, 9:30am to 1:30pm, September 18 to October 30 (no class October 16) with classes held in locations around the DC area (specific locations emailed the day before class or sooner -- so you must be registered to know where to go). 6 sessions. $325.  In case of inclement weather, we will meet at the school in Great Falls and class will go from 9:30am to 12:30pm (one hour shorter). I will make this up to you somehow if there are two or more inclement weather days. Find more information on the class with a link for registration at

Class size is limited in both. Sign up soon!
