Artascope Studios Late Summer/Early Fall Highlights

This week we are so excited to have Clint Fulkerson join us at the Studios teaching the Metalsmithing Art Escape® weekend! Clint works in many media including drawing and sculpture in addition to teaching metalsmithing. His work is shown at Susan Maasch Fine Art gallery in Portland, Maine as well as in many recent exhibits. Clint also teaches the Metalsmithing Series at Artascope Studios on a regular basis. This Friday August 20th through Sunday August 22nd, learn metalsmithing in a fun, relaxed atmosphere. Begin by learning how to handle the necessary tools and equipment. You will then set out on several projects, making pieces like rings and bracelets and perfecting skills in techniques like etching, embossing and soldering. This class is great for beginners or returning students.

At Artascope Studios there are many different formats of art classes that you can take to satisfy your creative needs. Art Escape® creative getaways are weekend-long classes in a special topic. They cover a unique variety of subjects from stained glass to metalsmithing, painting to collage.  All Art Escape® art classes are suitable for complete beginners as well as advanced artists. The classes are taught by professional artists who will guide you through this enriching experience; providing you with the right tools, materials and instruction so that you can step right into the art making process.

In September we are so excited to have Claudine Hellmuth coming back to Artascope to teach Beeswax Collage! She will show you how to create a collage entirely with beeswax – you don’t have to us other glues or adhesives! You’ll learn about beeswax transfers, stamping in wax, layering collage, glazing colors and other collage techniques too! The cool thing with this class is that “mistakes” can not really be made with beeswax. If you don’t like the placement of your papers you can remove them – even months later – and easily adjust your artwork! You’ll be amazed by how easy and fun beeswax collage can be!

Claudine Hellmuth is a nationally recognized collage artist, author and illustrator. Her artworks have been featured on The Martha Stewart Show, in Mary Engelbreit’s Home Companion magazine, The New York Times, on HGTV’s “I Want That!” and on the DIY Network’s program, “Craft Lab.” In addition to creating her artwork full-time, Claudine teaches collage workshops in the US & Canada, and she has written 2 books about her techniques, “Collage Discovery Workshop” and “Collage Discovery Workshop: Beyond the Unexpected.” She has also produced three instructional DVD workshops.

Treat yourself to a weekend of creative indulgence in this stress free and relaxing environment in beautiful coastal Maine – check out the whole list of of Art Escape art classes!

Another very fun event at Artascope Studios is the Stella the Unicorn Painting Project! Come help decorate Stella, the paper mache unicorn. All you have to do is be at the Studios from 10 to 12 wearing paint clothes (we’re using house latex paint, which doesn’t was out of clothing well). Anyone can come, small children please come with an adult. We’ll take turns with Stella, five or so at a time, and those of us not with her can mix and choose colors an pick out fun papers, sequins, feathers and other fun decorations while we wait. Can’t wait to see you at Artascope on the last Sunday of August!
