Kate McGloughlinApril 24, 2020.  Within the Elements: Value, a Way into Form,
In this 60 minute class, McGloughlin illuminates the idea of using value or tonal relativity to create form. Invoking the work of Plato, Birge Harrison, DaVinci, and Caravaggio through lecture and Monhegan Island through example, Kate also demonstrates the use of ’Frottage’ to create repeatable images without a press.

Kate McGloughlin-May 8, 2020. Into Practice: Marking Time
McGloughlin delves ‘into practice’ to describe ‘marking time’ as she describes working from an emotional place, work as meditation, and how artists including Tintoretto, J.S. Bach, Peter Bruegel the Elder, and Keith Haring worked during pandemics throughout history. Mixed media samples of McGloughlin’s work from Provincetown and the Ashokan Reservoir illuminates the theme, as does her Gelli-Plate Demonstration of how to create monotypes as fodder for collage.

Les Castellanos-April 5, 2020
How many times have you stared at a blank canvas not knowing what to do? Or maybe the hour that you used to put into a work suddenly turned into hours. Or maybe it’s time to brush up on some rendering skills. Painting a small still life can be an answer to all of these situations. Follow along this fundamental painting video and start creating your own still life. Whether you want to sharpen your observational skills or just dust off the painting cobwebs, artist and educator Les Castellanos will guide you from start to finish. By the end of the video you will learn to create basic object outlines, separate the lights and darks, apply local color and give the object those finishing touches to emphasize three dimensionality.
