Adria's Lanesville Workshop - A Creative Retreat

Lured by the beauty of the north shore of Boston, I once again brought a group of students to Lanesville, MA for a week of artmaking. Nine lovely people joined me for some serious fun and exploration using mostly acrylics. As I work for Golden Paints, much of my teaching revolves around helping students understand the versatility of the medium and what all those different products actually can do for them. Our studio, the Lanesville Community Center It was very exciting to see this student working super big! This is 40" x 30" printmaking paper using the fabulous transparency of Golden High Flow acrylics and hand-cut stencils, below. Hand cut stencils from a roll of Mylar. Letting loose with acrylics on paper. Some with lots of water added, some right out of the bottle. A wonderful wall of experimental painting, layers of thinned out acrylics! Of course, Gelli plate printing!

Fuzzy and Friendly Workshops on Cape Ann this summer!

Last year I spent a week teaching Intuitive Painting on Cape Ann, Massachusetts. We held our classes in the lovely Lanesville Community Center, a perfect studio set up in a perfectly beautiful little New England town on the sea. It was so successful that I am planning to teach again this summer. My friend and colleague Jodi Colella , fabulous fiber artist and teacher, will also be offering a FiberLAB workshop in Lanesville this August. I want to give her awesome program a shout out.

Announcing two painting workshops this summer on Cape Ann

Last summer, I had the good fortune of teaching a week long workshop on Cape Ann with some truly wonderful students. I observed my students growing in confidence and expression by leaps and bounds, and it was extremely gratifying to me. I want to share this experience with more of you this summer and fall with two week long workshops. Engage in transformative art making during this week-long retreat with me . Our spacious studio, the Lanesville Community Center ,  is within walking distance of shady hiking trails and lovely New England beaches . Class sessions will be held in the mornings, with several shorter afternoon programs. Each artist has a full 8 foot table (more if necessary) on which to work. Class size is limited to optimize individualized attention. The Lanesville Community Center, our lovely studio space for the week. We use all of the space around the studio. Gelli plate printing is on the list of the many intuitive techniques we engage in.   Spacio
