Let us take you on a creative journey to Downeast Maine. Experience the majestic sea cliffs and coastal trails of the most easterly point in the United States. North Star Adventures in Art is a unique program that provides an opportunity to practice your chosen medium in the natural world. Programs will use the natural world to inspire, tinder and inform your creative energy. Through adventure you will be asked to work outside your comfort zone and transform that learning /energy into art. Working with professional artists gives you the opportunity to gain skill and insight into your chosen medium. Programs are designed for both beginners and experienced artists.
We will explore the cyanotype process. We will investigate the photographic and painterly aspects of this medium. We will use objects collected in the field, hand-made drawings for overlay, and delve into an archive of antique glass-plate negatives that reflect local Maine life circa 1900. This process involves experimentation, discovery and some beautiful results.
