Saturday, October 26 | 12-1:30 PM | $20 ($15 for Friends of SAC)
This fun class will show you how to take an amusing idea and put it on paper—beginning with a rough pencil sketch to finishing an inked professional-looking work of humorous art. Drawing expressions, communicating mood and emotion, creating characters, developing and finding your own style, as well as basic perspective, cross hatching and ink wash techniques will all be taught.
Peter Spacek has been an humorous illustrator for 35 years, having worked for most major newspapers, magazines, ad agencies, and publishers. He is locally known for his weekly cartoon in The East Hampton Star and for his beach culture greeting cards, prints and designs by Ditch Ink. He also creates scrimshaw art on up-cycled discarded surfboards. Google him to find out more.
It’s friends like you that have made the first five years of SAC so successful. Now, we are taking the opportunity to invite you to become our Friend – formally – as we launch Southampton Arts Center Friends Circle.
TAKEOVER! GALLERIES ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED - CHECK BACK FOR UPDATES. TAKEOVER 2020! artists include Jodi Bentivegna, Michael Butler, Isadora Capraro, Franco Cuttica, Esly Escobar, Melinda Hackett, Erica-Lynn Huberty, Dinah Maxwell Smith, Miles Partington, and Kerry Sharkey-Miller Back by popular demand with 10 new artists-in-residence! For ten weeks in the winter of 2020 Southampton Arts Center will once again hand over its galleries to ten East End artists, each with an assigned space to set up a “pop-up” studio. Completed works will be installed and the artists will have scheduled weekly studio time in the galleries from Thursday to Sunday, 12-6 PM to create new works in a wide variety of mediums. A schedule will be posted online each week so the public can plan visits accordingly. This gives guests the opportunity to visit repeatedly to view the progress of new works. It is both encouraged and anticipated that the TAKEOVER! artists will also collaborate organically during the course of their residencies. TAKEOVER 2020! is sponsored by Ingrid Arneberg with additional support from the Long Island Community Foundation. Public funding provided by Suffolk County.
