John Caggiano Demonstration – Saturday, July 21st 2pm Pre-Demo Pop Up Show July 16 -21st

John Stephen Caggiano, a long time Cape Ann artist, will demonstrate his skills painting with brushes and palette knives. His oil palette, which has evolved over many years, is large and varied. It contains many colors, most of which are utilized in every painting. He will most likely paint from photos unless it is feasible to move outside on the grounds of the North Shore Arts Association, in which case he will choose a subject from the surrounding area. Questions from the audience will be welcomed. If time permits, he will be happy to critique a painting that you bring with you as long as you are willing to share it with all in attendance. John Caggiano is an elected member of North Shore Arts Association, the American Society of Marine Artists, Academic Artists, Hudson Valley Art, Lyme Art and Rockport Art Associations. Annually he is a juried and invited artist in up to a dozen plein air events around the country including Cape Ann Plein Air. Some recent awards are the Texas Ranchland Award from En Plein Air Texas, the Guerrilla Painters Award from Wayne (PA) Plein Air Festival and Second Place in the Marine Art Exhibition at the Lyme Art Association. John Caggiano’s art may be viewed on Facebook, http://www.JohnCaggiano.com or at his gallery on Bearskin Neck in Rockport, Massachusetts founded in 1981.

Spaces still available for SummerSTEM program!

We were very happy to get feedback from our first group of students, on the last day of their week at Summer STEM: Fish Fraud Forensics:

“My favorite part of the course was when we extracted the DNA.  I felt like a real scientist!”

“I would recommend this course to my friends because it gives a good introduction to what it’s like to work in lab.”

“I would recommend this course because it was interesting, engaging and really educational.  We were all able to learn so much in just five days.”

Space is still available for our remaining two sessions starting on July 23rd and August 6th.

 Don’t miss out on this exciting opportunity!
