Art Class at Mill Studio

by Arlene Chaplin
March 21, 2013

Holliston Mill Studios
 
 Watercolor Classes
beginning
April 4th, 2013
 

                          Featured Artist

                        Carlie DeGaetano

 Featured Artist: Carlie DeGaetano

There is music in the background, but that is not the focus of the room. It’s all about the color. Corals and lavenders, cerulean and ochres are feasts for the eyes. The artist is sitting in front of an easel, a mix of acrylics on the palette. It’s almost as though she is immersed in buckets of paint. Even after I enter the studio, Carlie cannot tear herself away from “just this bit of color here to change the focal point”. While this piece dries, she moves to another painting in progress and touches up the blues before she is ready to talk. 

 
 
Carlie DeGaetano is also an experienced watercolorist who can effortlessly transform a basic color palette into masterful landscapes and flowers. She says, however, that she is evolving into an abstract painter and mixed media artist and wants to add unexpected “quirks” to her work to make them more fun. Some of her more recent pieces are cityscapes with collaged papers, crooked buildings and rich colors. They are cities that we would all love to live in, filled with life and humor.
 
 
 
A member of the Rhode Island Watercolor Society, Carlie has exhibited often in their juried exhibitions. Other exhibit venues include the Post Road Art Center in Marlborough, the Amazing Things Art Center in Framingham, Pejamajo Cafe in Holliston and at the annual Holliston Mill Open Studios.
 
 
 
Carlie also teaches watercolor in her studio.  Her painting style comes so naturally to her that students easily gain the confidence they need to learn quickly.
 
               Classes begin April 4th
                 Thursday mornings 
                                                10:00 am to 12:30 pm
                          Studio 3-1

The Creative Process: Part 3

Some artists maintain an air of mystery around their creative process. They choose not to explain their work, but rather to let it speak for itself. Others, such as those included in this series, are more inclined to share what inspires them and the details of their process. In this series, presented in four parts, each artist selected a finished work and describes the process of creating that piece. All of the artists work in studios at the Holliston Mill.
