COST: Day Trip $70 Members/$95 Non-Members
Proceeds benefit the SNB house at the Halfway Point program
 

Application: SNB Art Excursion 2018

A quiet time to create . . .

In the quiet of Sandy Neck Beach Park, the rustic cottage at the halfway point stands in the middle of the dunes, marsh and water.  It provides solitude, scenic landscapes and an endless source of beauty and inspiration. The Town of Barnstable, in partnership with the Cape Cod Art Association, offers day excursions to this unspoiled landscape. It is a special place to create and immerse yourself in the great outdoors. From time to time a Sandy Neck Beach Park naturalist will travel out with the group and share their firsthand knowledge and expertise of this “living museum”.

Who is this for?   This artist experience is for the plein air painter, photographer, musician, writer or anyone who craves some time away to create without the usual everyday interruptions.  The cottage is very rustic.  While out you will be exposed to the elements, and need to dress appropriately.

When can I go?   Trips are often scheduled for September and October as the colors in the marsh are heightened by the sun, as well as early and late spring.  You will be transported by a Beach Ranger for the 3.5 mile drive through the dunes.   The excursions are six hours long, either 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. or a later departure with an after sunset return.  For full details and FAQ’s, visit:  www.CapeCodArtCenter.org or www.HyArtsDistrict.com.

How do I sign up?   The cost of a day trip is $70.  If you are not a Cape Cod Art Center member, there is an additional excursion fee of $25 per trip.   Participants have asked if they can give more and others have donated a portion of the proceeds they made from the sale of one of their art pieces created while out at the Halfway House.  All donations are welcome.  Donations and program fees directly support this program.  Complete the application form and mail or email your form to the indicated address.

 

Applications will be considered as they are received.  Excursion dates will be filled on a first-come first-served basis. A maximum of ten people can be transported out to the cabin for a day. Trips may be postponed or cancelled due to low enrollment or inclement weather.  If this is the case, participants will receive a full refund. Cancellations by a participant up to two weeks prior to date, will receive a refund less $25 processing fee. Cancellations by participant within two weeks of excursion will only receive a refund if spot is filled.  A processing fee of $25 will be charged.

The Art of Landscape Photography – The Schoodic Peninsula, Acadia National Park w/ Ronald Wilson & Bob Bergeron

The Art of Landscape Photography – The Schoodic Peninsula, Acadia National Park with Ronald Wilson & Bob Bergeron

Date: October 11-14 (4 days)

Location: Schoodic Institute | Schoodic Peninsula, Acadia National Park www.schoodicinstitute.org

Cost: $875 Members | $925 Non-Members – The workshop includes 3 nights lodgings, a meal plan of field breakfast, bag lunch and dinner, and a lobster bake on Sunday afternoon. All participants will have their own  private bedroom, in a shared apartment. Accommodations will include WiFi, DirectTV, hard line telephones, fully equipped kitchens, as well as dining and living rooms.

Limit 12

All Levels Welcome.

Explore the quiet side of Acadia National Park: Uncrowded | Unexplored | Unexpected

The 2,000-acre Schoodic Peninsula offers a wide array of opportunities to experience Maine’s rugged coast from the cliffs at Raven’s Nest to the summit of Schoodic Head along a spruce and fir trail to the giant slabs of pink granite that extend into the open Atlantic at Schoodic Point.

Nearby the seaside villages of Birch Harbor, Prospect Harbor and the quaint Corea will be an opportunity to photograph classic downeast Maine.

ABOUT WORKSHOP:

“The question is not what you look at, but what you see” Henri David Thoreau

The art of seeing is the active process of observing the world around us with deliberate thoughtfulness. In photography it’s what you do with what you see that counts. Subject matter provides the building blocks while composition acts like glue holding it all together, and light sets the stage for capturing a moment capable of conveying a sense of being there.

The workshop begins on Thursday with an orientation and power point presentation on “The Art of Landscape Photography” covering the aesthetics of photography and technical aspects of digital imaging.

The workshop features approximately 15 hours in the field with 3-hour sessions beginning each day in the pre-dawn and in the afternoons until twilight. Ronald had an intimate knowledge of these regions and designs an itinerary based on habitat, tides, and weather. Walking distances will vary from roadside vantage points to moderate trail hikes.

Complimenting the field experience will be 8-10 hours of classroom time where we will meet each day for an open dialogue covering subjects from capture to post processing and how to create a digital workflow using Lightroom and Photoshop. In the digital age our ability to teach has been considerably enhanced. Individual instruction, viewing images and group critiques to evaluate results is done in an environment that seeks to help you build confidence in your creative and technical skills and become a better photographer.
