Discoveries & Connections with Shapes

Join our February Vacation ArtLabs with teaching artists Jen Peppe and Sarah Lee, held Monday–Thursday mornings during February vacation week. Participants will explore discovering, identifying, and interpreting the shapes we see in everyday places and in our imaginations. Our explorations may connect to our natural environment and human relationships and the unique ways in which we express ourselves.  Play and experiment with accumulating layers in mixed media with two collage sessions and two assemblage days!

Day 1 & 3: Mixed Media Collage: cardboard, papers, paints, templates, scissors, glue, etc. drawing inspiration from objects and shapes with attention to patterns, colors, and texture as well as explore positive and negative space, layering and composition.
Day 2 & 4: Assemblage: integrate cloth, yarn, textured fabrics, found objects to two-dimensional work.

Preparations to make in advance:

  • Get inspired: Visit us in-person, located in downtown Rockland.
  • Dress for a mess: Sometimes messes happen, printmaking materials include ink or paint. Dress for a mess just in case!

Free and open to artists of all ages; youth ages 12+ may attend without adult supervision.

About the instructors:
Jennifer Peppe’s adventures as an art educator began in 1996. She launched her career with a B.F.A. from University of North Carolina at Greensboro then earned a Master of Art Education at Kean University. She expanded her skillsets and cultural experiences throughout her career via study, traveling and teaching abroad. Decades of work with creative learners of all ages and abilities has strengthened her commitment to sharing art with others. After teaching art in an urban, suburban, public school, she has followed her love of art and nature and landed in midcoast Maine.

Sarah G Lee is the owner of Spruce Tree Studio and lives in Tenants Harbor, Maine. Sarah attended college as a visual arts major but is primarily self taught. Painting and craft have always played a strong role in Sarah’s life and in raising her children. Spruce Tree Studio opened its doors in 2019 where you will find Sarah’s artwork, gifts, art supplies all in a quintessential Maine setting, offering summer workshops and special events to inspire.
