The Art Loft will host several well-known artists to their summer workshops program this year. We are thrilled to welcome Suzanne Siegel from Guilford, Connecticut, Carloyn Garrett Hardy from Williamsburg, Virginia and Art Paine from Bernard, Maine.
Suzanne Siegel will be sharing her acrylics and mixed media collage process in a 3-day workshop from July 8-10th. Students will learn through guided exercises and explore intuitive and experimental abstract painting, including collage, transfer, and monoprinting methods. Mixed media includes acrylic paints, graphite, pastels, crayons, markers, lightweight fabrics, personal papers scanned onto archival paper.
Suzanne is currently represented by Carver Hill Gallery in Rockland, Maine, Cynthia Winings Gallery in Blue Hill, Maine, Cove Gallery in Wellfleet, MA, and Archipelago – The Island Institute in Rockland, Maine. She teaches workshops in Truro, MA, Nantucket, MA, Stowe, VT, and other New England locations, as well as in her Guilford studio.

Caroline Garrett Hardy has been an artist all her life, earning an MFA in printmaking from Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, and a second Masters degree in book arts from Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio. Her BFA was from Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, Virginia, in painting and printmaking. She uses paper fragments, typically gathered on trips, to create collage works. These fragments might be from brochures, ticket stubs, napkins, maps, or other tourist material on paper. Caroline used a lot of these fragments, some collected in Spain in 2010, to create several works commemorating different cities there.
Caroline Hardy travels to Maine to teach a two-day representational collage workshop. She will share her process using this fascinating medium to create a portrait of your loved one, your pet, or perhaps even your boat. Participants will begin with an exercise using newspaper to see shapes and gradations from white, grays, and blacks and how to apply this to a representational figure. Afterward, you will be using an image of your chosen subject to create a work of art in color. Methods of adhering paper in an archival manner will be taught along with color theory, texture, and design.
