The Eliot School  School of fine & applied arts in Jamaica Plain, MA. Inspiring lifelong learning in craft & creativity for all.

Join us for Draw For a Day on April 15 led by local artist and former Eliot School artist in residence, Elisa Hamilton! Elisa imbues everyday objects and environments with vibrant color and a combination of liveliness and comfort. Her drawings make you glad to be alive. Join her for a day of in-the-moment drawing exercises that spark experimentation, dissolve artistic inhibition, and encourage fluidity and fun. Use multiple mediums and create many drawings in a single day. Loosen up and play with line, color and a generous spirit. Develop intuitive drawing techniques that emphasize color and motion. Work from life, using simple objects as a springboard for lively, beautiful expression. Work on multiple drawings at once and gain #fluidity with #line, #gesture, #color, #opacity and #transparency. #drawforaday #bostonart #craftschool @elisahhamilton

Using oil paper or panels, roll on the paint and transfer texture. This process lends itself well to both #abstraction and #realism. #painting #oilsticks #coldwax #bostonart @paulamlazar

Our Yupo Painting Workshop with the talented Ginny Zanger begins on March 13th! Yupo, a synthetic paper made from polypropelene resin, opens many exciting possibilities for water-based media. Colors flow, swirl, and bleed on its surface, creating unique effects once the water evaporates. Once dry, areas can be reworked, color can be removed and monoprinting techniques can be applied. #Yupo #YupoPainting
