Artists Classes Information Contact Membership Rentals Support



BAMA Galleries offers an array of classes, helping to promote the ways in which the education of art making can enrich our lives. Two such ways BAMA is committed to educating the surrounding community of Hoboken is either through direct or indirect methods of communication. An indirect method of providing the community is through quality, displayed art. Through quality art a means to raise the interests, consciousness, and sensitivity for the necessity for art in our lives. An example if direct measure would be through contact class structure. Classes such as drawing and painting have a hands-on approach to those crafts. Lectures, given periodically, provide a more intellectually stimulating environment. All touch the imagination, provoke thought, and channel creativity through constructive learning.

Another factor BAMA is interested in is wellness. Not only do the above mentioned crafts and learning methods help procure a more balanced psyche, other means of exposing the mind, body and soul can be established through wellness classes. Classes such as yoga and dance allow for the individual to become aware of themselves "within" their bodies. These classes also provide an exercise regiment as well as a meditative avenue to help cope with the enduring stresses in our lives.

Here are some of our courses and instructors:

Iyengar Yoga

  Iyengar yoga is based on the teachings of a living Yoga Master B.K.S. Iyengar and begins with learning the art and science of asanas, or yoga postures. In a detailed approach that progresses methodically, Iyengar can embrace the range of meditative to a more rigorous form of exercise. By adjusting the postures to each students needs yoga becomes accessible to everyone, regardless of age or ability. Concentration, strength, flexibility, and coordination are some of the benefits of this practice. Students learn how to do asanas in a safe and structured environment.

Drawing from Life
One of the most rewarding forms of expression, Drawing from Life (nude model) allows for a range of creative outlets. This class provides an all-nude model (either male or female) with the intent purpose to have the student render the body. Class begins with warm up short timed poses and works its way up to longer ones. Drawing from Life is a non-intensive class: students are free to come and go as they please and are encouraged assist those around themselves as much as possible. Students are also encouraged to use any medium they choose, ranging from graphite to charcoal to clay or paint.


**Drawing from Life is offered:
