After years of holding its classes at the Sandwich Public Library and other locations around town, the Sandwich Arts Alliance (SAA) is excited to hold its Summer Program at their new Center at 124 Route 6A starting July 1st. The Center features an inspiring exhibit of visual art as well as a panoramic view of the marsh.
To this year’s Summer Program, the Alliance is happy to offer workshops designed to accommodate people’s busy summer schedules.
Literary programs, including a workshop for teens, have been added for the local writing community and those interested in learning more about the art.
Youth programs offering a nature art sampler and an artist bookmaking class, taught by local artist Hannah Bouvier, are timed for late afternoon, after the beach.
Also of interest are the new plein air painting courses with Betsy Payne Cook which include guided sessions around the Upper Cape and a workshop on how to successfully paint plein air style.
Two pop-up workshops, one for families and one for adults, are another addition to the Summer Program, where students use templates designed by Robert Sabuda.
Returning are favorite courses including painting with acrylics and silver metal clay jewelry making. For all course details and schedules, visit www.sandwichartalliance.org or stop by the Center which is open daily from 10-5.
In addition to the Summer Program, the new Center has made it possible for the Alliance to provide an ongoing roster of new and changing courses throughout the year as instructors add their class schedules to the calendar. To stay updated as new courses are added being regularly, stop by the Center or visit the website.
