To kick off our summer season, we’re holding a day of art-making at the Hawthorne Barn with Twenty Summers. We’ll start with a brief lecture on the legacy of Charles Hawthorne in Provincetown and a painting demonstration, followed by two hours of still-life painting. After a lunch break, painters may continue their morning work or paint from a clothed model. Breakfast pastries and coffee will be available in the morning, and lunch will be provided in the afternoon.
Open to all levels of experience, but you need to bring your own supplies (we have easels available for borrowing, but advance notice is required).
Twenty Summers is a nonprofit arts center in Provincetown, Massachusetts, founded to foster public engagement with art and artists, and to honor the legacy of art in Provincetown. It restored the historic Hawthorne Barn where that legacy began, and where its series of concerts, conversations, and artist residencies takes place from mid-May to mid-June annually. The 2017 season will be from May 12 and June 10, and features a variety of guests from musician Duncan Sheik and writer Junot Diaz, to documentarian David France and abstract painter Xylor Jane. Please see the Twenty Summers calendar of events for more information and to purchase tickets to Season Four! Please note that the Barn is only open to the public when they have a listed event.
Upcoming events include a free Opening Party on May 12 at 5:30pm, and a free event about artist Hans Hofmann on May 12: How Drawing Provincetown Shaped Hans Hofmann: Marcelle Polednik and Karen Wilkin in Conversation at 7pm.
