Unique Visual Art Study Options Offered in Provincetown

Cape Cod Community College and the Museum School in Provincetown Offer Unique Visual Art Study Options Beginning January 22

PROVINCETOWN - During the academic year, Cape Cod Community College and The Museum School of The Provincetown Art Association and Museum (PAAM) offer students the unique opportunity to study with some of the finest visual artists in the world, and to do so right in the new naturally lit, climate-controlled studio classrooms at PAAM. The setting during this ?off-season? period for Provincetown couldn?t be more inviting. Streets very often clogged to near ?stand-still? during the summer tourist season offer easy access to numerous picturesque vistas throughout this first stop for our Puritan ancestors. Finding something to draw, paint, or sculpt is not difficult in such a setting under the guidance of world-class artists: Bob Bailey, Anne Flash, Susan Lyman, Jim Peters, Doug Ritter, Meg Shields, and Vicky Tomayko.

The Museum School is located on Commercial Street in Provincetown. The next series of classes begin January 22, 2007 and course registration is underway.

Being offered in the coming semester are introductory courses in drawing, design, painting, watercolor, sculpture, printmaking, and advanced classes in sculpture, drawing, design, painting mixed media and. In addition, advanced students may elect to study intensively, exploring a particular medium or technique, by enrolling in the ?Advanced Projects in the Visual Art,? being taught by each artist.

Full-credit academic courses are offered in highly-personalized, intimate settings where the artists themselves are creating fine artwork even as they teach and inspire their students. Classes are offered ?conservatory style,? one day per week in 3 to 4 hour time blocks, making the travel to Provincetown highly productive time for the student. Students also have the opportunity to supplement class time with monitored open studio sessions at the Museum School. With such a schedule, students can choose to study two different disciplines such as sculpture or drawing, and printmaking or design, and make the trip only twice a week.

Space in each class is limited to 12 participants, so students are encouraged to register as soon as possible by calling 508-375-4012.  More information about these classes and the Museum School itself is available by calling Lynn Stanley at: 508-487-1750 ext. 13, or through email at: [email protected].
