    Don't miss registering for Richard Eskin's Wed. evening Digital Photography Course in Towson as well as Michael Bare's Tue. evening Studio Painting Course that start the 1st week in February. During the last annual meeting some members were very interested in expanding their understanding of digital photography.  Richard Eskin is not only an expert, but he has worked along side plein air and studio painters as a winner of several artist residencies at our National Parks.  These classes are in Towson Arts Collective's new 3600 sf EBC Arts Center in the 40 W. Chesapeake Ave. Bldg.
    TAC & Towson University Community Art Center are partners in these workshops:
