Standard

Fall creative workshops are open for registration!

fall01Here on Boston’s South Shore, sunshine, sea-water, beaches are giving way to cooler nights, hints of color in leaves, a slow goldening of sunlight. Summer came and went far too quickly! 

But our early summer workshops were filled with excitement and yielded S2014oceanssome wonderful creative work (some pics here).

Time to settle to long painting and sketching evenings, pull out that old story you promised you would finish soon, or study the changing swirl of constellations in autumn skies.

Join us this term to practice your drawing skills, learn new printing and painting techniques, experiment with mixed-media art, and write about the stars!
