camps running August 12 – 16, 10am – 2pm.

Step into Color

In “Step into Color” with instructor Mandy Howe,
your teen will have fun with watercolors and tempera paint, learn basic
techniques for painting with acrylics, and use art stencils and stamps and their
own creative designs. The outcome will be their own painted floor cloth. A
traditional American folk art, floor clothes were made from sailcloth and used
as rugs in early New England homes.
(ages 13 – 16)
In “The World of
Adobe” with instructor Karen Murtha, your teen will explore the computer as a
design tool. Students will begin in Adobe Photoshop, using their own digital
images and then master Adobe Illustrator to create original artworks.  Their
digital artwork will be showcased at the end of the
week.

 

Adult Classes

Just
because the sun goes down, the photography doesn’t need to stop!
Monday – Friday, Aug. 19 – 23
6:30pm – 9:30pm
Grab your tripods for a week-long sunset photo shoot

amazing sunsets.

The Art Connection RI Seeks Donations of Artworks for RI Non-profits

Tuesday, July 30th, 2013

Following the model of The Art Connection in Boston, TAC-RI was founded as a Rhode Island non-profit organization in 2010 with the mission of making visual art accessible to people who might not otherwise have the opportunity to experience it in their daily lives.
TAC-RI identifies artists willing to donate art, makes presentations of the artwork to qualified nonprofits, and allows them to choose art that has the most meaning for their clients and staff.
So far, TAC-RI has placed over 100 pieces of art at ten different nonprofits across the state.
If any artist is interested in learning know about this organization, the qualification process for the nonprofits, or how to make donations, they can call Jim Scott, head of TAC-RI’s Art Committee, or email him at jamesescott56@gmail.com.
Jim would also like to follow-up with any artist who would like to be part of TAC-RI as a member of their Art Committee.
Please let me know if you have any questions.

Read what students and faculty have to say about 24PearlStreet:

 

“I have participated in workshops at FAWC in the past. Top-notch instructors and environment, but I live far away so the ability to have access to same top instructors, but not have to travel, is very advantageous.”

 

“[Online workshops are a great option for me.] I completed my MFA in 2009 and haven’t engaged in a workshop setting since. I was really impressed by the variety of poetry workshops you’re offering, as well as the expertise of the instructors.”

 

“24PearlStreet affords aspiring, emerging and experienced writers alike the opportunity to grow and sustain their craft in an environment largely free of geographical and chronological constraints. There is as much of an active, engaged community here as you will find in physical workshops, but we let you eat breakfast in your pajamas during class.” – Charles McLeod, 24PearlStreet faculty
