4-Week Session: Working It Out! with Cecilia Rossey

June 7th, 2:00pm – 4:00 pm

Cape Cod Museum of Art


This four-week course will help artists start their process and experiment with various mediums. Facing a blank matrix: paper, plate, or canvas, can be daunting, but it doesn’t have to be!
As an artist, facing a blank matrix: paper, plate, or canvas, can be daunting. When contemplating a work of art many face the difficulty of where to start. Conveying a concept from a 3-dimensional world to 2-dimensional artwork is always a challenge but challenges lead you to explore the mysterious world of art. While inspiration is sought, the practicalities of “how” will be learned.
Painting, Print, Installation, Watercolor; this class is designed to help you pick the best medium for your idea stressing basic design elements i.e. line, color, and contrast. For example, a woodcut eliminates delicate fine lines that may be better achieved by creating a drypoint plate or using pen and ink. An appreciation of fine papers may lead you to the creation of a monotype or collage. It’s important for a student to know which works attract them and how they can be achieved. To execute one’s visual imagination it’s important to take the courageous first step, make your mark. Implementing design elements gives one the structure to work it out using the tools and language of the fine arts. No solvents will be used in this class.
For the first session, students should bring sketching materials, pencils, pens, markers, a sketchbook, or drawing paper; For the following sessions, their favorite medium: watercolor, oil, printmaking inks, pastels, and/or appropriate paper or substrate. For those who wish to try printmaking, materials will be provided.
