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.

Artistic Possibilities w/ Procreate: Creating Digitally on a Mobile Device Workshop w/ Catherine Caddigan

 Artistic Possibilities with Procreate: Creating Digitally on a Mobile Device
Instructor: Catherine Caddigan
Day: Saturday, October 13th
Time: 9:30am – 3:30pm
Location: Cape Cod Art Center – 3480 Route 6A, Barnstable, MA 02630
Cost: $110 Members | $140 Non-Members
This workshop requires an iPad, we will be downloading Apps from the App Store. Bring a variety of imagery that you want to work with on your iPad. (You can photograph your material, with your iPad camera or your phone or scan it and transfer it to your iPad in advance of the workshop) Imagery of any kind should work, but background material and textures are helpful.
Procreate is a very powerful standalone drawing App with over 200 brushes, but for our purposes, one can create a work of art in just a few hours. We will start in a tutorial format, with live demonstration of some of the features of Procreate. There will be a slide presentation as well, and time for questions. Some of the techniques we will cover are layering, masking, color adjustment, importing imagery, painting, erasing and blending.
There will be a break for lunch.
From there we will move into our own projects, and experiment with Procreate and some of the ways it can interact with other apps. I hope to be able to give you pointers and share some techniques that I use. We will finish by sharing and talking about the work from the day.
Bio: Catherine Caddigan is an artist who has practiced many forms of photography. She received her MFA at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago with a concentration in photography and printmaking. Currently she is concentrating on Mobile Art. For the past few years she exhibits works created with mobile devices. She is inspired by collage artists of the 20th century, and strives to express more than a simple capture. Her layering and collage technique is meant to observe culture today, in all its complexity. She feels that the mobile devices of today are a reflection of the information driven culture.

Lost and Found: Mixed Media w/ Jackie Reeves

Lost and Found: The art of letting go of control and embracing process through drawing, painting and collage
Instructor: Jackie Reeves
Day: Saturday, September 29
Time: 9:30am-3:330pm
Cost: $110 Members |$140 Non-members
Skill Level: Some art experience is required, knowledge of the basics of drawing, and composition.
Class maximum: 12
Description:
The goal of this workshop is to loosen up, experiment and play with drawing marks, painting spills, drips, drags, imprints (etc), and collage. The idea is to let go of control and push your limits allowing the materials to take the lead as you aim to develop a small series of artworks by the end of the day. This could potentially serve as a launching pad to give you new direction in your work.Working from your imagination you will begin by creating abstract marks on paper based on your interpretation of my prompts. By allowing yourself to get lost in the process you will make new discoveries for your studio practice. Following your instincts, you will respond to the imagery unfolding before you and begin the process of editing and shaping by cutting, ripping, masking, glazing and painting.

Japan and Its Prints in the Floating World: Part 2

2:00 PM14:00

Japan and Its Prints in the Floating World: Part 2

Japanese print enthusiast Tom Silver explores the origin and development of Japanese prints during the Edo era (1600-1867). The first prints focused on courtesans and kabuki actors, with the genre ultimately developing into the sophisticated art form admired by the likes of Monet and van Gogh. The period encompasses many of the most familiar names in Japanese prints - including Utamaro, Hokusai, Hiroshige, and Kuniyoshi. We will look at early period prints and then focus on masterpieces by each of these artists.

There will also be an “artifacts table” with beautiful Japanese crafts and antiques from the last two centuries.

Tom Silver developed an interest in this art while searching for an unusual gift for his wife. That search sparked a love for Japanese art, history, and culture. Mr. Silver’s talks at libraries and other institutions showcase print masterpieces from the 350-year history of the Japanese print genre. Mr. Silver is a Cape Cod summer resident, and a New Jersey native with degrees from Drew University and Rutgers University.

This program is free but please register at cotuitlibrary.org/events or contact the Library.

Monotype/Painterly Print Workshop with Joyce Zavorskas
Aug
10
to Aug 12

Monotype/Painterly Print Workshop with Joyce Zavorskas

Monotype/Painterly Print
Instructor: Joyce Zavorskas
Dates: August 10-11, Friday & Saturday (optional third day, Sunday August 12, 9am-3pm)
Time:  9am-3pm
Cost: $245 Members | $275 Non-members (includes the $25 materials fee). Additional third day $110 Members | $125 Non-members
*Workshop can not be purchased as Sunday only
Location: Zavorskas Studio, Orleans (exact address will be emailed separately upon registration).
Description:
Monotypes are paintings on smooth acrylic plates transferred to paper once only. Artists ranging from Edgar Degas, Pablo Picasso, Ross Moffett, and more recently Joan Snyder and Michael Mazur have used the monotype medium to express a more spontaneous and evocative range of drawing, painting and printmaking combinations.
Students will make painterly spontaneous images on acrylic plates using small rubber brayers, brushes, Oil Bars, or stencils, and oil base etching ink. Dampened 100% rag paper placed on top of the inked plate, and passed through the press with gentle pressure, results in a unique impression that is intimately and permanently bonded with the fibers of the paper. Overprinting and contemporary experimental approaches with larger rollers produce magical surprises. The glistening layers of radiant ink create truly unique images with depth, mystery, memory and delight. Demonstrations each day will help to develop individual explorations. Beginner to advanced students are welcome. Clean-up will be with baby oil, Gamsol or or Simple Green.

Making Masks w/ Barbara Braman

Making Masks w/ Barbara Braman

 Making Masks

Instructor: Barbara Braman

Day: Saturday, August 4th

Time: 10am-1pm

Cost: Members $70 | Non-Members $90



Description:

What is a mask? In digital art, a mask is a tool to let you do something to a part of the image but not the whole. 



What sort of something? Anything. You can change the exposure in a dark area of the image. You can smooth only the skin. You can make part of the image black and white. You can blur the background.



You can ADD things to an image. You can add a texture to the background. You can add an object. You can REMOVE or REPLACE things from an image. 



We are going to focus on making masks in two apps: iColorama and Procreate. I will also show you a simple way to cut out objects from photos that is useful for composite images. Different apps work in different ways, and different masking techniques work better for certain types of jobs. After you are comfortable with basic masking, we will explore some more advanced masking techniques.



*This is an intermediate level class. Some experience with creating mobile digital art, using any app, is necessary.
