Color Grading and Shaping Light in Photoshop: Learn my Processing Secrets w/ Betty Wiley

In this class students will use a variety of techniques for color grading and adding/shaping light in Photoshop. Students will learn how to work with color and light in Photoshop using levels, curves, brushes, various adjustment layers, color fills, blend modes, and more. These techniques will allow you to add color casts and/or enhance color to images to make sunsets and sunrises really “pop” as well as apply various color looks that are very popular on social media these days. I will show you how to use different filters and adjustment layers. These techniques are a great way to enhance images and build Photoshop skills in the process. I’m looking forward to sharing my processing secrets with you and how I work with color and light and Photoshop to achieve various effects. You will be amazed at all the techniques and tools you will learn in this class. I will supply images for the class exercises on a thumb drive for students to use.

Please note this is not an “intro to Photoshop” class and that students will need to have some basic Photoshop knowledge as a prerequisite for taking this class. Students will need to know how to navigate the program, open files and understand layers and have familiarity with basic tools however proficiency is not required. In addition students will need to have basic computer skills and have a laptop that’s in good working condition as this is a hands-on class and students are encouraged to bring their own laptops.

Judy Collins in Concert at the Tilden Arts Center

Payomet & Cotuit Center for the Arts are ecstatic to welcome Judy Collins at Tilden Arts Center in West Barnstable!!

Few singers have the staying power of folk icon, Grammy award winner and legend Judy Collins. For nearly 45 illustrious years, her dulcet tones have graced our ears, and her poetic lyrics have galvanized a generation. She has released more than 40 albums, has had numerous Top 10 hits, Grammy nominations and gold and platinum selling albums.

Judy has inspired audiences with sublime vocals, boldly vulnerable songwriting, personal life triumphs, and a firm commitment to social activism. In the 1960s, she evoked both the idealism and steely determination of a generation united against social and environmental injustices. Five decades later, her luminescent presence shines brightly as new generations bask in the glow of her iconic 50-album body of work, and heed inspiration from her spiritual discipline to thrive in the music industry for half a century.

As creatively vigorous as ever, Judy is still writing, touring worldwide, and nurturing fresh talent. She is a modern day Renaissance woman who is also an accomplished painter, filmmaker, record label head, musical mentor, and an in-demand keynote speaker for mental health and suicide prevention. She continues to create music of hope and healing that lights up the world and speaks to the heart.

Goreyosity Shop Exhibit and Gala Auction

 Goreyosity Shop: An Exhibit and Auction of New Artwork Created from the Collections of Edward Gorey, is an inspired repurposing of materials from the vast collections (or, The Wondrous Hoardings) of author/artist Edward Gorey into new works of art and fine craft by local artists. A benefit for the Edward Gorey House in Yarmouth Port, Goreyosity Shop is the result of 26 Cape and off-Cape collage and assemblage artists, fabric artists, illustrators, sculptors, furniture makers, miniaturists, jewelry makers and painters being allowed to rummage through Edward Gorey's barn. Clothing, fabrics, small metal objects, large metal objects, very large metal objects, architectural remnants, glass, beads, kitchenware, ceramics, tiles, cutlery, partially intact books and magazines, and plush toys have now all returned as new works of art-either decorative, contemplative, outrageous, wearable, useful, or otherwise. There is every possibility that you will want to own one, or more, of them. Goreyosity Shop exhibits in the Great Hall Gallery from Wednesday, May 22nd until the culminating Goreyosity Shop Gala Auction. Join us at this incredible event to experience  music by Broadway Central, delicious food and lovely libations, and the auctions, both live and silent.

Schuyler Grant at the Harvest Gallery Wine Bar
Jun

6:00 PM18:00

Schuyler Grant at the Harvest Gallery Wine Bar

Schuyler Grant, (born January 16, 1990) is an American songwriter and performer based out of Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

Working with Grammy-nominated producer Jon Evans (Tori Amos, Sarah Mclaughlin), Schuyler released his first studio EP, “Moving On” (available now at www.schuylergrantmusic.bandcamp.com), in May of 2016. Called “gritty and soulful” by one reviewer, “Moving On” explores the softer side of Grant’s songwriting, drawing much inspiration from likes of Bob Dylan and Ray LaMontagne.

Grant’s second LP is a departure from the folk-inspired songwriting of his first, replacing the gentle ballads of “Moving On” with a rough and tumble exploration of the harder, blues driven rock and roll the songwriter holds close to heart. “It is the music I have always wanted to play— growing up on Clapton, Hendrix, and Led Zeppelin, I developed a love for fuzzed-out guitar riffs at an early age,” Grant laughs. Working with Bradley Conant on percussion and again with Evans on bass, the album was released at the end of 2017 (available at www.schuylergrantmusic.bandcamp.com).

Waves and Wildlife Workshop w/ Susan Simon

Capturing motion is something a camera does exceedingly well. With the right settings, we can actually see what our eyes cannot, freezing motion in a fraction of a second or blurring motion to emphasize the passage of time. These techniques are often used to shoot waves and wildlife where shutter speed is key to capture movement. This workshop will begin in the classroom where we will learn techniques to do both and then we will go out to a beach to try our hands at the skills we’ve learned. Please dress in layers as temps will drop and bug spray is encouraged.

Materials:

Bring your camera and tripod (if you have one). Phone cameras are not ideal for this kind of photography

Artist Bio:

BFA from the University Of Hartford. MFA from Anna Maria College. I have over 30 years of experience teaching studio art and art history at all grade levels. In my own work, my preferred media is oil paint, oil pastel, and a combination of watercolor with colored pencil. I strive to capture images that touch the viewer in a personal way. In my seascapes and landscapes I attempt to go beyond pure representation and paint not only the place, but communicate the feeling of being in that space. I try to capture the elusive space between representation and the emotions felt from the experience or memory of a place.

Students will explore a wide variety of subjects from robots and rockets to mermaids and sea creatures. They will be introduced to famous artists as inspiration for their projects in paint, drawing, collage and sculpture. A variety of media and subjects will be explored in a new project each week.

Artist Bio:

BFA from the University Of Hartford. MFA from Anna Maria College. I have over 30 years of experience teaching studio art and art history at all grade levels. In my own work, my preferred media is oil paint, oil pastel, and a combination of watercolor with colored pencil. I strive to capture images that touch the viewer in a personal way. In my seascapes and landscapes I attempt to go beyond pure representation and paint not only the place, but communicate the feeling of being in that space. I try to capture the elusive space between representation and the emotions felt from the experience or memory of a place.

Schuyler Grant Trio at the Harvest Gallery Wine Bar

Schuyler Grant Trio at the Harvest Gallery Wine Bar

Schuyler Grant, (born January 16, 1990) is an American songwriter and performer based out of Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

Working with Grammy-nominated producer Jon Evans (Tori Amos, Sarah Mclaughlin), Schuyler released his first studio EP, “Moving On” (available now at www.schuylergrantmusic.bandcamp.com), in May of 2016. Called “gritty and soulful” by one reviewer, “Moving On” explores the softer side of Grant’s songwriting, drawing much inspiration from likes of Bob Dylan and Ray LaMontagne.

Grant’s second LP is a departure from the folk-inspired songwriting of his first, replacing the gentle ballads of “Moving On” with a rough and tumble exploration of the harder, blues driven rock and roll the songwriter holds close to heart. “It is the music I have always wanted to play— growing up on Clapton, Hendrix, and Led Zeppelin, I developed a love for fuzzed-out guitar riffs at an early age,” Grant laughs. Working with Bradley Conant on percussion and again with Evans on bass, the album was released at the end of 2017 (available at www.schuylergrantmusic.bandcamp.com).

9:00 AM09:00

Creative Coastal Photography w John Tunney 2 day workshop

Come learn the art of creative fine-art photography while exploring the beaches, dunes and harbors of the Lower and Outer Cape and the Cape Cod National Seashore. In this workshop, photographer John Tunney will take you to some of the Cape’s most beautiful locations and give you ideas on how to “see” a scene, discover its creative potential and produce a creative and expressive fine-art image. We’ll go on field shoots in the mornings and late afternoon into evening, plus one night shoot for the Milky Way (weather depending), and have midday classroom sessions for editing and reviewing pictures.

Who’s it for:
Anyone with basic understanding of camera controls and Lightroom and/or Photoshop or the equivalent software.

Creative Post Processing w/ John Klingel
Jul
27
9:00 AM09:00

Creative Post Processing w/ John Klingel

Location: Off-site held in Eastham. Instructor will email you the address

Digital photography gives us an opportunity to take relatively normal photos and turn them in to masterpieces. In this workshop, we’ll go beyond normal post processing and look at creative post processing.

We’ll start by looking at post processing in general. We’ll first discuss corrections that might be needed to improve composition. The next goal will be to help you understand how to look at a photo to determine what needs to be done. One of the basic objectives is to determine where you want the viewer’s eye to go. So we’ll discuss how to direct the viewer’s eye. And as often there are distracting elements pulling the viewer’s eye where you don’t want it, we’ll discuss ways of removing elements or reducing their intensity.

Then we’ll review a number of tools that you can use in creative post processing and demo how these tools can be used to maximize a photograph’s potential. These tools will include Photoshop, Lightroom as well as, a number of plug-ins and pre-sets, including NIK, DxO Optics Pro, Topaz, On-One and others. You’ll be amazed at how much punch and “wow factor” you can add to your photographs. While most of the discussion will center on post processing color, the workshop will also cover B&W conversion and combining B&W with selective color.

This session is designed to stimulate your creativity and help you create photos that have that “wow” factor.

Becoming More Skilled in Digital Photography Workshop w/ John Klingel

Becoming More Skilled in Digital Photography Workshop w/ John Klingel

Location: Offsite in Eastham (Location will be emailed by instructor)

If you have a digital camera and you’re interested in improving your photographic skills and knowledge, this workshop offers an overview of various areas you need to learn more about. If you want to do more than point-and-shoot with a digital camera, you need to learn about various aspects of digital cameras and the techniques used to take a good photo. The primary objective of this seminar is to show you all the various aspects of digital photography that you will eventually need to learn to master if you’re interested in improving your skills. This seminar is for people who don’t use manual settings, don’t shoot in RAW, don’t understand depth of field, don’t understand basic composition and don’t use software to post process their photos. And it’s also a good introduction to digital for people who have always used film.

We’ll start with the camera and talk about some of the important features of digital cameras that many people don’t use but should. Topics will include: An explanation of why cameras don’t see what the eye sees. Why shooting in RAW is important. Why you need to use manual settings to achieve proper exposure and understanding depth of field. What white balance and ISO settings to use and why the quality of light is more important than the quantity of light. You’ll also learn how to read a histogram and why it plays so important a part in producing good photographs.

I’ll also discuss some of the basic aspects of composition along with what’s involved with shooting back-lit objects, motion, bright objects, macros, and other difficult shooting situations. Most shots, even by professionals, can be improved significantly with post-processing. We’ll go through many of the adjustments you can make in post-processing. The focus here will be on giving you an understanding of what you can easily do in post-processing and how to develop skills in this area. And we’ll review various software packages that are available for post-processing .

Seaside villages such as Birch Harbor, Prospect Harbor and the quaint Corea feature scenes of classic downeast Maine – fishing boats, lobster traps, working docks and more. On Mount Desert Island, we’ll explore picturesque locales such as Bar
Harbor, the Acadia coast, Jordan Pond, Eagle Lake, as well as places off the beaten track.

Most days will begin with a sunrise and morning shoot, then break and free time around lunch, editing classroom lessons, discussion and reviews in the afternoon, and a late afternoon/early evening shoot.
We’ll also have an optional night shoot. The weather, sun, moon and tides will guide our itinerary.

With two instructors and a limit of 12 students, you’ll have plenty of time for personalized instruction. John and Betty will offer tips and techniques in the field and classroom to help you get the most out of
your workshop and develop your skills. Instruction includes:
– Classic and creative landscape photography
– Long exposure and camera movement
– Depth of field
– Night photography
– Use of filters
– Processing in Lightroom, Photoshop and other programs.

What’s Included:
– Four nights lodging at the Schoodic Institute. All participants will have their own private bedroom in a shared apartment. Accommodations include WiFi, DirectTV, hard line telephones, fully equipped kitchens, as well as dining and living rooms.
– All meals except one lunch and one dinner in Bar Harbor.
– Instruction with two experienced teachers and a low student:teacher ratio

Cape Cod Landscapes:  The Art of Seeing Creatively w/ Mark Bowie

Cape Cod Landscapes: The Art of Seeing Creatively w/ Mark Bowie

Photographically, what makes Cape Cod landscapes so special, is how light interacts with this convergence of land and sea. Learning to see the possibilities and then translate them into images can elevate our picture-taking from the commonplace to the artistic. Professional landscape photographer and night shooting expert Mark Bowie will lead this power-packed workshop to explore the Cape from pre-dawn to deep night, visiting some of its finest scenery: the ocean, beaches, dunes, coastal waterways, lighthouses and fishing villages. He’ll cover in-depth the fine art of seeing, offering innovative strategies, tips and techniques for looking deeper, refining your personal vision to creative images with feeling, that come from the heart.



We will typically shoot for several hours around sunrise and sunset each day, and other times as favorable lighting conditions present themselves. We’ll also photograph the moody blues of twilight and the Cape’s magnificent night sky. The landscape, so varied and photogenic in daylight, becomes ever-more mysterious and enchanting at night. Our schedule and selection of shooting locations will remain flexible to take best advantage of the weather and lighting conditions.

Ink Drop Landscape Workshop w/ Mary Wojciechowski

Alcohol Ink is a highly pigmented and quick-drying medium applied by pouring, brushing or stamping on a non-porous surface such as Yupo. This workshop will explore the unique qualities of this painting medium that may be used for flowing abstracted works, representational images and subjects that incorporate both. Landscapes will be the primary subjects during this class, taking full advantage of these vibrant colored inks that intermingle in ways that create unique textural effects, often with unexpected results.

This workshop is experimental and explorative and the very nature of the inks offers a sense of creative playfulness during the process. Class time will be divided between demonstrations and students creating many paintings on a variety of sizes of Yupo

Days: Thursdays (6 weeks), class begins May 16, 2019

Time: 1pm-4pm

Cost: $110 Members | $140 Non-Members

Description:

Maybe you are not sure about drawing or feel that you can’t draw a straight line. Or maybe you are interested in learning a completely new way to approach drawing or maybe you are stuck in the quagmire of depending on one media and afraid to use your drawing skills with a different media.

This course is for the rank beginner as well as the advanced student. You will receive the basics in drawing with sighting skills, perspective and shading and composition, but you will also have the opportunity to explore different media…even with brush and ink as a drawing tool. There is an aesthetic to Drawing that is worthy to explore and will also enhance your own Art Appreciation.

There is no limitation on the media you use. Even collage. The choice is yours. We will explore a wide range of approaches to drawing. “There is No One Way to Draw”

We will also explore a wide range of subjects from still life, to landscape and the human figure.

You will also learn how to draw from observation as well as using photo references.

DRAWING IS THE PERSONAL AND MOST DIRECT PATHWAY TO EXPRESSION. My job as an instructor is to introduce this multi-faceted approach to drawing that actually frees you up so you can dis­cover that you really can draw.

Creating a Custom Watermark or Logo in Photoshop w/ Betty Wiley


In this class students will learn how to create their own unique watermark or logo in Photoshop. While there are companies that will create a watermark logo for you, the problem is that they all look very similar so this is an opportunity for students to learn how to create their own and save some money in the process. We will create a number of different water marks that can be used in a number of different ways and I will show you some creative ideas to make your watermark even more unique. Students will learn how to work with the text as well as how to shape and work text to create artistic and creative looks. Once the watermarks are created I will show you how they can be applied to your images in Photoshop as well as in lightroom. In addition I will also show you how to create and add your own signature if desired.
Design skills are not necessary for this class however students should possess basic skills in Photoshop such as knowing how to open files, navigate the program, have some familiarity with the tools and know how to create layers. In addition students should possess basic computer skills and have a laptop that is in good working condition that they can bring to class as this is a hands-on workshop.
With water marks that they can use on their own images and skills that they can use to further create additional watermarks on their own. Students will need to have a fairly recent version of Photoshop installed on their laptops, such as Photoshop 2016 or higher.
I’ve been asked to teach this many times so if you have been wanting to learn how to design and create your own signature look with a unique watermark that is different from the rest,, now is your chance! Hope you can join me for this fun class!

ANOTHER EXCITING NEW ART SHOW OPENING AT COTUIT CENTER FOR THE ARTS

ANOTHER EXCITING NEW ART SHOW OPENING AT COTUIT CENTER FOR THE ARTS

ANOTHER OPENING – ANOTHER EXCITING NEW ART SHOW AT COTUIT CENTER FOR THE ARTS!

 DON’T MISS A SPECIAL RECEPTION AND ARTIST TALK ON MAY 11TH  FOR A NEW EXHIBIT FEATURING THREE WONDERFUL ARTISTS.

 What:  Opening Night Reception

When:  May 11, 2019   5-7pm  (Artist Talk at 5:20pm)

Admission:  Free  

Snacks served with a wine tasting

Other beverages available for purchase

 The works of these artists will be on display:

 Percy Fortini-Wright:  Street Art

The title of this exhibition is somewhat of a paradox. This body of work is realistically spray-painted street scenes on canvas, the art being the street itself.  Thus the title “Street Art.” Fortini-Wright is particularly drawn to night scenes with their distinct lights, wet streets, and cars dashing by that many can relate to. Fortini-Wright, a night owl who loves to drive, finds these scenes not only familiar but also a time of reflection. His aim is to put you, the viewer, in the driver seat as an observer.

Joe Fusaro:  Bite Your Tongue

In this exhibit, Joe Fusaro presents collage and mixed-media works that utilize human gestures and original photographs to place viewers in the midst of something recognizable and simultaneously fleeting.  Fusaro tears and cuts into his photographs and handmade paper in order to present images we feel we recognize but can't quite place... all the while biting our tongues to find the right words or simply keeping the memory to ourselves.

 

Erik Durant:  Myths and Narratives

Durant’s personal work is a quest to understand the human condition. As a sculptor his main interests lie in gesture, movement, and pose. His works are at times Illustrative, but always realist, exploring historical, and contemporary narratives—both known, and unknown. While many of the characters that he chooses to sculpt seem to be rooted in the past, they are his own imaginings of things not fully understood. Issues surrounding beauty, the body, and identity, give rise to a version of contemporary mythology that is new, yet seemingly familiar.

Exhibits Run May 11- June 9, 2019

Peleg Nye: The Jonah of Cape Cod ~ A talk with author Nils Bockmann

Peleg Nye: The Jonah of Cape Cod ~ A talk with author Nils Bockmann

Have you ever heard the story of whaling captain Peleg Nye, who was thrown off the side of a boat and right into the mouth of a giant sperm whale? Miraculously, Nye lived to tell about it … 
Join author Nils Bockmann on Saturday, May 11 from 2:00-4:00 pm for a discussion about his book, Peleg Nye: The Jonah of Cape Cod, and the topic of whaling. 
In 1864, first mate Peleg Nye, veteran whale man and former whaling captain was climbing the chain of command aboard the George W. Lewis out of Provincetown. On this voyage, a captured sperm whale hit the bow of the whaleboat, sending Nye over the bow and into the leviathan’s closing mouth. Nye and the dying whale slipped beneath the surface, Nye's twitching legs protruding between its teeth. 
Thanks to his captain's makeshift medical skills, Nye survived. He returned home eight months later as an immediate celebrity, and thus was known as the "Jonah of Cape Cod." 
Nye's story is historical fact, authenticated by the captain's logbook held in the New Bedford Whaling Museum’s Kendall Collection. The meticulous research of author Nils Bockmann reveals the complex world of nineteenth-century whalers and the savage industry they served.

Embrace the Practice: Daily Painting Workshop w/ Lisa Daria Kennedy

This one-day intensive workshop combines demos, in-class assignments and individual instruction to teach students the techniques Lisa Daria Kennedy uses to create fresh, deliberate marks. Using acrylic paint (or oils) students will discover approaches to simplify the process of painting and ways to stay inspired and motivated. Continuous painting is by far the most effective way to improve creativity and image making skills. She will share examples of how the discipline of daily painting produces personal growth. The class will delve into the principles of design, composition, value, and color. We will examine color mixing, mark making, and personal voice. Lastly, we will discuss practical strategies for painting every day (or almost every day).

In this workshop, John Klingel will cover good landscape composition, appropriate camera settings, choice of lenses, achieving good focus, scouting locations, planning (incl. helpful apps), really working a scene and dealing with bad weather and poor cloud cover. In addition, John will discuss bracketing and HDR, panoramas, black and white landscape photos, and creative landscape photography.

Ninth Annual Bob Dylan Birthday Celebration

Come gather 'round people wherever you roam! On Friday, May 10, Cotuit Center for the Arts will hold its 9th annual celebration of the music of Bob Dylan. The show will feature the Dylan-interpreting talents of Art Tebbetts, Danielle Miraglia, and Matt Borrello.

Borrello and Tebbetts share a love for the music of Bob Dylan. Both are accomplished folk singers. Tebbetts hosts an Open Mic in his hometown of New Bedford, which is where he and Borrello first got together share their large repertoire of Dylan songs.

Born and raised in the small Southeastern Massachusetts town of Dighton, Borrello started playing guitar at 14. Now in his mid-20s, he usually performs as a solo acoustic act and writes songs that often blend political and personal themes.

Danielle Miraglia has been described as a dynamic and captivating musician, who “comes armed with a strong steady thumb on an old Gibson” and “sings with gutsy passion, blows a man harp, and writes songs both tender and timely.” She grew up in Revere, but is steeped in the Delta Blues, and has shared the stage with Johnny Winter, Bettye Lavette, John Hammond Jr., Joan Osborne, John Mayall, Sonny Landreth, John Oates, Colin Hay, Robert Cray, Rodney Crowell and many more and is a frequent guest of The James Montgomery Blues Band.
