Whether you’re looking to sell your art online, get into a gallery, or provide a place for someone who stumbles across your work to find out more about you, this workshop will help you to hone in on what is important to you and how best to go about achieving your website goals.

Students will begin with a session with Laura Shabott to gain knowledge of writing good copy for the website and self-promotion by going over material such as the distinctions between a short and long biography, an artist statement and a resume. Through prior preparation and then assessment and active editing of these professional documents within the course, the completed materials can be used for a web site, social media and grant applications.

Students will next meet with Sian Robertson to begin designing their own web site, or to revamp an existing one. In this era of wide internet access and social media, it is vital for artists to have a web presence. A good web site does not have to be complicated or hard to maintain, but it is an essential tool for an artist who wishes to be taken seriously by prospective gallery directors, potential buyers and art collectors, and those who write about art. The workshop overall is specifically designed with a week between the two classes so that you can start to work on your site and get help with issues, opinions on layout, etc. during the second session.

The second week, students will meet for the second time with Sian Robertson to follow up on their websites and finalize details.

Exploring Hofmann's Push/Pull Theory in Paint $140.00

Fri./Sat. Jun 1-2, 10:30am - 3:00pm each day

Cape Cod Museum of Art, 60 Hope Ln, Dennis, MA 02638, USA

https://www.ccmoa.org/events/exploring-hofmanns-push-pull-theory-in-paint

Hans Hofmann is considered one of the most important teachers and painters of the twentieth century. His push/pull theory influenced students who went on to become great artists, many of whom were on exhibit in The Hans Hofmann Legacy: Creative Diversity at the Cape Cod Museum of Art this past winter. Through her studies with painter Robert Henry, and as a former gallery assistant at Berta Walker Gallery, Shabott learned of Hofmann’s push/pull theory and embraces it in her paintings and drawings.

Your two-day painting workshop with artist Laura Shabott begins with one hour of figure drawing and then you will make paintings that demonstrates your understanding of the theory of Hofmann’s push/pull for the remainder of the class. Day two, we will work from a different model beginning with a warm-up of figure drawings and moving right into painting. There will be affirming and encouraging critiques throughout the course.

Cost: $140 to $135. see website

https://www.paam.org/workshops/spring/?subject=one-day-workshops

Do you often think about coming to PAAM’s Life Drawing sessions, but stop because you don’t feel ready or inspired? This workshop is designed for you. We will go through a series of exercises designed to loosen your hand and train your eye to see the human form in a whole new way. There will be a mini art history lecture, two hours with a model and an optional peer review at the close of the workshop. Students will leave with a renewed ability to draw and a greater sense of self as an artist.
