Art Reach, our premiere award-winning program for youth, will be offered online for summer 2020! Participants ages 10-15 are welcome to join PAAM teaching artists and education staff for 6 weekly workshops. Together we will dig into the artistic process, exploring the many ways we can create art with objects and materials both familiar and new. All programming will be held online via Zoom.
Hannah Capra has been involved with the youth programs at PAAM since age 12. As she progressed through the programs, she began mentoring other students and developed a love for teaching she then brought to Sandwich Recreations summer camp, where she instructed art for two years. Capra was a Reaching Forward Mentor at PAAM until graduating from high school, before earning a technical degree in Design and Visual Communications at Cape Cod Regional Technical High School. She is currently a student at Montserrat College of Art and planning to study Printmaking and Curatorial Studies, and hopes to be a museum educator.
Capra specializes in printmaking but has been exploring media for years. She dabbles with collage, paint, mixed media sculpture, observational drawing, bookmaking, installation and more, the sky is the limit. Exploring media and the importance of women is a primary aspect of her work. She finds inspiration from the amazing minds of young artists and the way they express themselves through different avenues of visual art.
Maeve Noone-Price is an undergrad at UMass Amherst. She started her experience at PAAM as a student in the Art On The Edge (AOTE) program when she was 12 years old. After she turned 14, she joined the Art Reach program geared toward older students and was enrolled until she graduated high school. While in Art Reach she decided that she wanted to be a teaching mentor for the AOTE program. Alongside her mentorship she was given the opportunity to co-teach a printmaking class for adults with the program ART Reach Teaches. After graduating she did not intend to major in art, yet she wanted to incorporate it into her studies in any way possible. She is currently finishing her first year at UMass Amherst studying Forest Ecology and Conservation while working part time as a gallery assistant at Herter Gallery. By directly communicating with many artists that show their work in Herter Gallery, she can continue to feel connected to the community of which she familiar. Her goal is to meld science and art by bringing creativity into her classes and ultimately career. She is grateful to the programs at PAAM that supported her creativity and without which her goals today would not be possible.
