Experimental Masters
Instructor: Mary Moquin
Day: Wednesdays (five weeks) Beginning May 17 (No class June 21)
Time: 9:15-12:00Noon
Price: Members $115/Non-Members $130

The primary object of this course is to increase your artistic vocabulary through experimentation and is geared to more advanced students. An advanced student is someone who and feels they have reached a point in which they have certain tools firmly under their belt but feel stuck and uncertain as to where their work is going now. They are ready to push it to the next level. We often fall into patterns of working and develop limiting beliefs of what painting is “supposed to be”. This course will push you to experiment to find a mode of expression that is uniquely yours. Participants will work on multiple similar paintings at the same time. With multiples going, there is the ability to compare and make decisions more freely without the fear of “messing” something up and different solutions to perceived problems can be tried. The extended class time will allow for periodic critiques and presentations. All mediums are welcome. As there is a print press on site, various printmaking techniques can also be explored and incorporated.

The Song of the Lark: Book Discussion lead by Anne Speyer

The Song of the Lark: Book Discussion lead by Anne Speyer

May 31, 2017

Cotuit Library continues its musical programming with a discussion of Willa Cather’s novel, The Song of the Lark, led by South Dennis Library Director, Anne Speyer.  The book tells the story of Thea Kronborg, a young woman on a journey to become an opera singer at the end of the 19th century.  Cather, one of the most important and influential writers of 20th century American literature, stated in the preface to her novel in 1932: “The story sets out to tell of an artist’s awakening and struggle; her floundering escape from a smug, domestic, self-satisfied provincial world of utter ignorance.”

Anne Speyer was an English teacher for 30 years in Williamstown, MA, before moving to the Cape.  She has been Director at South Dennis for twelve years and has led numerous book discussions at local libraries.  She also edits books, gives talks and teaches community education courses in literature. 

This book discussion is part of our Royston Nash Music Appreciation Series, supported in part by the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod and the Mid Cape Cultural Council.

Copies of the book are available at the circulation desk. This program is free, but please register at cotuitlibrary.org/events or contact the Library.
