    Bringing Color into Black and White

    Three Sessions: January 10th, 17th, and 24th

    This class will cover some of the basics of acrylic painting and open the window into personal expression through color. Working from the simple black and white silhouettes of plants, like branches against the sky, we will explore color mixing, layering, composition, and an abstract approach to looking and translating what we see.

    Kaitlyn Miller began her painting career by observing the immeasurable beauty of simple branches against the sky and painting them. Having worked as a studio potter on Little Cranberry Island for the last 15 years she is newly transplanted to the mainland and is excited for more color to come into the world.

    She has her BFA in Ceramics from Maine College of Art and is a full time studio potter and pleinair painter who has set her roots on Little Cranberry Island for the past 15 years. Newly transplanted to the mainland, she is now branching out into teaching and is excited for more color to come into the world.

    Please join ArtWaves and Children, Families, and Communities to create a community peace flag!

    The intention of Children, Families and Communities Peace Flag Project is to provide a space for people of all ages to come together and explore their personal meaning of peace. By gathering collectively and mindfully creating peace flags we also manafest  a space of peaceful collaboration. These peace  flags, one is carried home and one is left behind, are a visual representation of our intentions. The flag left behind will become an installation of peace blessings that will spread on the wind.  The flag carried home is a reminder of the maker's inner peace.

     This class is donation based with a suggested donation of $10 for each session.
