Summer Workshop Program 2023
We will draw along Provincetown’s harbor with its wharves, blackened pilings, schools of fish breaking up the sea’s surface, sailboats, fishing boats, and ferries moving in and out of view — all of which have inspired artists for over a hundred years. We also will look at the geometry of houses, narrow streets, and a local cemetery. We will find our interpretations with charcoal, pen, ink, and graphite. This class is open to everyone.Paul-Bowen-Materials-List-SP23.pdf
