Have fun with a series of exercises designed to increase creativity and help students add emotional content to your acrylic work. There should be no limits to your imagination. Be prepared to do different painting exercises that will stretch your imagination and thought process to raise you to new levels of achievement.

ONLINE WITH ZOOM
You will need to be sure the Zoom app is installed on your device. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing a secure link to join the class.

You will be able to login 15 minutes before the class start time. We recommend logging in before the class starts to make sure you are settled in and ready to go when the class is set to begin.

If you are new to Zoom, please note that we will not be able to help with the app. It is strongly recommended that you navigate Zoom on your own before the class starts to get to know the mute and video settings. Try it out by talking with a friend or family member who has the Zoom app. The Cultural Center uses Zoom to conduct online classes, and I understand that the Zoom meeting will be recorded. By participating in the class, I consent to be recorded and place no restrictions on distribution of the recording.

 

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.
