    Making Space, Space Making

    Online Mondays from 5-6 pm with Dani Robbins, starting May 11

    In this short creative practice, we will work to make space in ourselves for creativity and hope. We will arrive in our own making spaces together. Using writing, drawing, movement, and working with household materials, we will discover the play and curiosity at the root of improvisation. Open to bodies of all abilities and experiences. Classes held live via ZOOM.

    Ages 14+ Suggested donation is $5-10 per class.

    Are you looking to improve your creative development with constructive feedback?

    Join ArtSpeak: our Visual Arts Critique Group. All mediums and experience levels are welcome. You just have to be open to new ideas and productive feedback.

    Bring whatever you are working on and, as a group, we will offer insight on how we, as viewers, are experiencing the piece and offer thoughts on how to further your creative expression. Technique and idea exchange are essential aspects of critique, so come ready to share!

    The group will meet via Zoom until we are able to meet in person at ArtWaves.

    Plein Air at the Bar, July-October

    Plein Air at the Bar is a great way to meet up with fellow artists when the tide is low at 2:00 pm on a Sunday.

    These are the Sundays we will meet up when the tide is right: July 26 August 16 Sept 13 Oct. 11

    The Sand Bar is a fun place to paint, albeit challenging with people, tide, wind, and stunning views. Never a dull moment!

    No instruction, no cost, just friendly fellow artists enjoying the chance to create at Bar Harbor's sandbar.

    Look for the easels and wear your mask or face covering to keep safe.

    Modern for Young Dancers starting May 21

    This class looks to engage young dancers in both modern dance and improvisation. We will begin with structured improvisation as a way to connect with our bodies and explore new movement. Then, drawing on various techniques within modern dance, we will work on alignment, weight, and fluidity in a way that is appropriate for our individual dance spaces at home. In addition to learning technique, this class will help young dancers to remain active and connect with other moving artists. Classes held live via ZOOM. Ages 12+

    Suggested donation of $5-10 per class.
