Spring 2018

The Spring Program at the Lillian Orlowsky and William Freed Museum School at PAAM is officially here! With offerings in printmaking, painting, photography, art history, web design, watercolor, mixed media collage, and drawing, we have something for every student. Workshops are open to all levels of experience unless specifically noted. Please check our website for workshops as well, as some things are subject to change and new workshops may be added!

“If winter comes, can spring be far behind?”
― Percy Bysshe Shelley, Ode to the West Wind

Winter and spring on Cape Cod offer an abundance of endeavors. A person can go clamming, bird watching, make chowder, make art, attend films and open mic nights, play trivia, and cherish your loved ones.

You can also come to the Museum School and work on your craft, whether you are a working, professional artist or have always yearned to learn an art form; our roster of talented teaching artists can take you to next step. Our workshops are open to all levels, so do not be intimidated if you haven’t picked up a paintbrush in years.

Fulfill your New Year’s Resolution by submitting daily drawings based on a prompt, facilitated by Joerg Dressler. Vicky Tomayko will be teaching both a six and four-week printmaking workshop. Learn to build your own website, or update your current one, with Sian Robertson. Drawing workshops will be offered by Laura Shabott and M J Levy Dickson. Anastasia Egeli is offering a painting workshop, and Lisa Goren watercolor. Work with paper and mixed media with Heather Blume, and collage with Sarah Kahn. Rebecca Bruyn is once again offering her iPhoneography photography course. Art history curious? Join Beth Stein for an adventure in looking at fine art. As the sun warms us in May, John Clayton will be offering Friday morning plein air sessions. We also welcome new teaching artist Ginny Parker.

In addition to workshops, join us for Chester I. Solomon Life Drawing every Tuesday and Friday morning from 9:30-11:30. Monthly Artwork Reviews give you a chance to bring works in progress in for a group discussion. Attend a Gallery Conversation on a wide variety of topics ranging from health hazards in the studio, to getting the gallery representation that is right for you. For members of the Museum, keep an eye out for new listings of Members’ Workshops- they fill up fast!

I encourage you to get in touch with any questions about our programming.

All are welcome here.
