BECOMING A FEARLESS PAINTER: THE LITTLE THINGS

Admission

  • $140.00

Summary

Four Tuesdays, beginning September 3
from 10am-noon

Description

Join Odin in a series of sessions that change their directive each month and are devoted to working in a smaller and more intensive learning environment, to improve specific artistic skills.

In the interest of thinking ahead and trying not to be a last-minute gift maker, I have designated September as a great month to work on creating beautiful small paintings and ornaments with time to spare for Christmas gift giving! Using our creativity and tiny canvases or wooden pieces, we will work on the fine art of painting very small, as well as learning how to finish off these pieces to make them the perfect, one of a kind treasures to give to friends and family. Think of all the beautiful images you could give away! This is a chance to make some truly magical paintings that people will never want to regift, nor will they pack them away with the Christmas things once the holiday has passed!!

Please be prepared with small “gift sized” (4”X4”,2”X4”, 3”X3” etc) canvases or wood pieces, smaller brushes, as well as reference material and any other supplies you normally use or things you may want to try. You may want to bring in metallic paints, fine glitter or anything that may make memorable gifts spectacular. This class meets in Odin’s studio on the upper level of the Education Wing.

 

MATERIALS
Students are at a level where they have their own supplies.

 

ODIN SMITH
Odin Kaeselau Smith is a native Cape Cod artist known for her ability to capture the landscape in a unique manner. Her artistic process is greatly inspired by her love for the beauty of the land, sea and sky, and the endless sources of subject matter that surround her. Her paintings are frequently inspired by the beautiful Cape Cod images that have imprinted themselves on her senses since she was a very small child. She enjoys portraying subjects in a manner that fills them with light, energy, emotion and life. Her choice of subject matter often shifts as she moves through life. As her view of the world expands, she chooses subjects that reflect her desire for peace, love for the beauty of nature, exploration of color and texture, and even her sense of humor. Odin comes from an artistically talented family. She has a strong connection to her family’s roots which stem from the heart of the Provincetown art colony, in the days of Charles Hawthorne. The influence can be seen in her work, especially her great attraction to painting moving water. She is the granddaughter of the late Charles Anton Kaeselau, a Provincetown artist, who holds an important place in the Cape’s art history, and her paternal grandmother, Marguerite Benjamin Kaeselau was also an accomplished artist and illustrator. Odin's grandparents have always been an inspiration and influence in her life. Her 5 sons also show artistic promise in many ways. Odin Smith is an acrylic, pastel and watercolor artist who believes that each painting or illustration is a discovery and education in itself, and is always open to new artistic ideas. As an art instructor for many years, she has been able to share the experience and enjoyment of her own artistic exploration with many others. She has won several awards, and has shown in many juried exhibitions. She is currently represented by Gallery Antonia, in Chatham MA. Her studio may be visited at the Cultural Center of Cape Cod in South Yarmouth, MA. She may be contacted by email at odinsmithart@yahoo.com
