In this class, we will be learning the basics of drawing and collage to develop creative and colorful pieces of art. Additionally, we will incorporate printmaking and painting to integrate our work and create amazing pieces that are meaningful and personal. If there are objects, photos, or specific things you would like to incorporate, bring it along! Old paintings you want to paint over incorporate, also great.
All materials will be provided.
This class is a drop-in class: free to members and $20 for non-members.
About Your Instructor – Naomi Howe
Naomi Howe, a resident of Spruce Head, has been an artist all her life, beginning with pen and ink in her young years, and moving on to watercolor and various mediums in painting. As a clinical psychologist, therapist and educator, she has worked with adjudicated and behaviorally challenged youth, and those with addiction and mental health issues for over 40 years, and saw how important art and music were to her clients and students. In the 1990s she discovered the paper arts and has shown her altered books in the Camden area, as well as teaching drawing classes for the adult ed in Camden and MCST Region 8 for several years while working as day treatment and special education teacher at Camden Hills Regional High School. She loves to create cards and books, teach and explore multi-media, but her passion is to open doors for those who are ready to explore drawing and art as an essential, revealing part of life. She is a violinist and singer and incorporates music into her classes where appropriate.
