A Letter from AOY Member
Maggy Robinson

Our February 3rd meeting will be held in 
the "Janney House" on Patterson Farm
949 Mirror Lake Road, Yardley PA.
7:00 pm

Janney House at Patterson Farm ~ Yardley PA

Janny is not the white house!!! It is the brown stone house that sits back from the road.
If you are driving on Mirror Lake from Edgewood/Yardley Langhorne Rds towards 332, it is the first driveway on the left. The second driveway goes to the white house that sits on the road.
On Saturday and Sunday, January 30 and 31, from 2pm to 4pm, you can visit the Janney House and see how wonderful it is in the daylight!
I will be there and can be reached at 215-479-3689 if you have any trouble finding your way.

If you have any spare floor or table lamps, no matter how beautiful or unattractive - we can use them until we can install lighting!! Our founding fathers worked well by candle light but, our house does have electricity. We also have some tables and lots of chairs.

AOY Officer - Treasurer

AOY member, John Scott Murdoch


Live Model Drawing and Painting Sessions

John's work is classically based and includes people and pet portraits, plein air landscapes, figurative work, angels and still-lifes.

The school offers Atelier training, a classical European training method of learning how to see and handle materials. The school also offers lessons in the form of classes, private instruction and portfolio preparation for high school students who are college bound.

The studio and school are located in the heart of Bucks County on a 13 acre farm surrounded by tall majestic pine trees and fields. Truly an ideal and serene environment to create art.

Going on now...

Every Monday from 10am to 1pm. 3 (one hour) poses of a live model.

Every Wednesday from 10am to 1pm. 1 (three hour) pose of a live model.

Every Friday from 10am to 1pm. 1 (three hour) pose of a portrait model.

Model will usually repeat multiple sessions.

$12.00 for a single visit.

$10.00 a session if paying for two or more sessions
