Jan-Feb 2013 Course Guide RAISE YOUR GLASS We hope you had a healthy holiday season, but if you’re anything like us, it’s likely that you indulged in a little too much eggnog and entertained one too many gingerbread men. It’s okay! Twas the season, after all. But this being January, it’s time to look forward, not back. We invite you to join us in raising a toast to all the exciting things to come!

New Art

Driving’s never okay, but friends totally let friends drink and draw. Join us this February for Rendering the Regulars: Sketching in Pubs! A good fit for artists of all levels, students will capture the lighting, architecture, and denizens of a local pub. If you’re better with a pen than a paintbrush, this may be the year you see your name in bylines. Sign up for Feature Writing, a crash course in publishing long form articles in print and online.

New Chefs

You’d think that innovative American cuisine and traditional European style lagers wouldn’t play well together; challenge this expectation when fan favorite Brew & Chew returns with High & Mighty Brewing Co and Chef Sam Monsour of JM Curley’s. That master of meats, Chef Brian Poe, will also join us for our Celebrity Chef Series representing his latest venture, the Tip Tap Room. Just when you thought winter couldn’t get any more wonderful, the Bon Me food truck will be parked outside the BCAE.

New Business Tails will wag for this term’s installment of Passion Turned Paycheck. We’re bringing in local legend Polka Dog to discuss becoming your own boss, pursuing your interests, and helping out your four legged friends. Class will meet at the BCAE and end with a tour of Polka Dog’s South End location.

Our perennial favorites will also be in rotation this term. Get to know a class that’s new to you!

Always thinking ahead,

Jean Genie: The Fit You’ve Wished For

Get Schooled You can’t draw a stick figure, you can’t replace a button, and the result of your sweater knitting attempt was a polygon potholder. We get it, you produce DIY disasters, you’re hobbyless, and you’re discouraged. But we’re here to help! The majority of the BCAE’s classes are for bona fide beginners; here are just a few designed with YOU specifically in mind:

Will that stranger with a pint go down in history as “that guy who sat next to me once” or your next work of art? Take a cue from famous impressionists like Renoir and become versed in capturing the spirit of a scene in “Rendering the Regulars: Sketching in Pubs.” The first session meets at the BCAE, and will focus on basic drawing exercises and examples of life drawing. In the second session, class will cozy up to a local bar and learn how to depict the interior, atmosphere, and crowd while honing basic drawing skills.

Begin to Swim Start your year with mindfulness and self-motivation by joining this inspiring class to understand yoga beyond the mat—where the majority of our lives are lived. This threepart course, focusing on the mental, physical, and spiritual aspects of yoga, explores traditional wisdom from a fun, modern perspective. The outcome is not only a deeper, more meaningful, and more accurate understanding of yoga philosophy but, also, self—including who you are, what you want, and how you relate to the world. Ancient yogis described the purpose of yoga as samadhi or enlightenment. This course agrees and also calls it something else: doing your om thing. Ideal for aspiring and current yoga teachers, advanced yogis, curious beginners, or anyone seeking to create healthy change from the inside out in the year ahead. Please bring a journal to class.

ImPortant Information & Policies The BCAE reserves the right to cancel classes, change times or locations, and change instructors when necessary. Prices are subject to change. In the event of a discrepancy between the printed and online versions of our catalog, information shown online will be considered correct. Course Cancellations

Student Services

We occasionally have to cancel classes due to low enrollment. In the event we cancel your class, you may either request a credit or a refund in full for that class or transfer into another class, space permitting. If you transfer into a class that’s more expensive than the cancelled one, you’ll be responsible for any difference in tuition or fees. If your new class is less expensive, you may request a credit or a refund of the difference.

All transfer, credit, and withdrawal requests must be made in person or by phone (617-267-4430) through our Student Services office during its normal business hours: Monday–Thursday, 9:00am–7:00pm; Friday, 9:00am–5:00pm. Requests made outside these hours, including weekends and holidays, will not be accepted or processed.

Transfers We permit transfers from one class to another, but only if there is still space available in the new class, if both classes occur during the same term, and if you request the transfer at least five (5) business days before the first session of the class for which you’ve already registered. Transfer requests must be submitted in person or by phone to our Student Services office during normal business hours (see below). You will be responsible for any difference in tuition or materials fees if the new class is more expensive than the one from which you’re transferring; if your new class is less expensive, we’ll apply the difference as a credit towards your future registrations. Transfers are non-refundable, and no transfers are allowed for off-site classes.

Withdrawals If you withdraw from a class at least five (5) business days before the first session, you may be eligible for a full credit or refund for the tuition and materials fee you have paid for the class. Withdrawal requests must be submitted in person or by phone to our Student Services office during normal business hours (see below). Withdrawal requests that are received less than five (5) business days prior to the first session may qualify for a partial credit or refund, subject to additional requirements. For details, please refer to the full withdrawal and refund policy that appears on our website: www.bcae.org. Off-site classes are non-refundable, as are classes for which our catalog says, “no discounts, transfers, or credits apply.” Please note that our $7 per person per term registration fee is not refundable.

BEHIND THE SCENES

Chef Sam Monsour of J. M. Curley’s talking smoked trout at “Regional American Snackology”. The class made duck gorditas, autumn grilled cheese with roasted pumpkin & sage on a cranberry pecan bread, and shaved beef heart crostini. Delicious!

Valentine’s not your thing? Give in to the dark side and join us for “Cupid is Stupid: Devilish Delectables.” You’ll bake up sinful desserts with Instructor Dustin Todd Rennells.
