One event on June 23, 2021 at 10:00 am
Get those creative juices flowing again with this two-day workshop given by artist Maria Malatesta. Rocky Neck Art Colony presents an in-person workshop on June 22 and 23 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Class size is limited to 10 to ensure plenty of one-on-one feedback and direction. The workshop is $130 for RNAC members; $150 for nonmembers.
Based in the airy second floor of the Cultural Center at Rocky Neck, this Mixed Media Workshop will begin with drawing from observation and quickly move into the addition of various materials, including acrylic or other water-based paint. Demonstrations of various ways to apply paint will be given. Drawing materials include charcoal, graphite, and pastel, but students are encouraged to bring those materials they feel most comfortable using. The addition of collage and photographic transfers may be integrated into the work. This is a fun class where exploration, staying open and “play” will be encouraged. Open to all levels of experience.
Maria Malatesta received the Diploma and Fifth Year Certificate from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and a Bachelor of Science from Lesley College, Cambridge MA. She studied at the University of California at Davis and has also taken numerous painting trips to Italy. Maria teaches at Montserrat College of Art in Beverly, MA and privately in her studio.
