What’s new

Big news around here! I have accepted a position with the Cape Cod Maritime Museum as the Education Coordinator. I will also be responsible for marketing. The position is part time for now and full of opportunities for creating classes and workshops for the museum, in the schools and in the community. I am very excited about both the place and its programs. And, I can walk to work! If you haven’t been to the museum, check it out after it opens for the season on March 15.

My new position will not keep me from teaching my usual classes. I will, however, be offering a painting class there so keep watch for that announcement. Dates and times have not been set yet.

As many of you know, I teach a lot for many different organizations. I teach both art and nature classes all over the Cape and I especially love it when I can teach classes that have elements of both, such as my outdoor drawing and painting classes. Last year I taught outdoor classes twice a week from April through most of October. We traveled from Falmouth to Provincetown and painted all sorts of different landscapes as well as some of the Cape’s most beautiful gardens.

Here’s one of my students at Beech Forest in Provincetown.

And another with a prime seat at Fort Hill. We had classes painting the sunset as well. This one was at Sandy Neck. Here we were at an incredible garden in Dennis. Another garden, this time in Sandwich and it was full of sunflowers and nasturtiums. This is my get up. An easy to carry stool with a minimum of supplies that fit in a canvas bag. Right now I am teaching at Green Briar Nature Center in East Sandwich. The class is full and we are having a wonderful time. April is right around the corner so keep an eye out for my class announcements on the website, Facebook, etc.

In the summer I will be teaching several family nature journaling classes for Green Briar. These are not up on their website quite yet.

In September I will be teaching a weekend long intensive at Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary, Drawing and Painting Birds.
