In this ongoing twelve-week class, all ages are invited to explore drawing and painting. The class does not teach one technique or the “right way” to draw or paint, but is geared to the individual skill level and natural inclination of each student. The aim is to encourage open discipline, freshness, and working outside clichéd ways of making art. Techniques and media can be explored as a wide-ranging survey or in a limited, concentrated way. For 25 years, Sam Cady taught in the MFA program at the School of Visual Arts in New York. He shows at the Caldbeck Gallery in Rockland, as well as in Boston and New York. Cady’s own work begins with the physical, visible world and the ideas and emotions it triggers.
(Please note the class will start meeting in March, as opposed to February, as previously publicized.)
