The Windsor Art Center will go far beyond its role as Windsor's premier exhibition house when it hosts a week-long art immersion program this summer.
Made for adults and children over the age of 10, the program, which is created and run by the mother-daughter team of Terese Newman and Catalina McKay, will provide two three-hour sessions each day on 3-D collage work, large-scale drawing, and cartooning, among others.
"We want participants to be so deeply involved in the act of creating, they will go away feeling inspired and motivated to continue creating, said Newman.
The program, which, according to McKay, is "designed to get the students to effectively use the right side of the brain and help build creative thinking," will explore the use of mixed materials, various textures, color and seamless integration of various media.
McKay, who will assume the primary teaching responsibilities, holds a degree from Bard College at Simon's Rock, and will be attending Rochester Institute of Technology's school or art in the fall.
Her art instruction experience is rooted in her time working with young children at the Berkshire Community Center's (Mass.) arts program.
Newman holds two masters of fine arts degrees from the University of Connecticut and the University of the Arts.
Her oil paintings, prints, book arts and collage works have been shown in galleries throughout the country.
Scheduled for August 12-17, each three-hour session will cost $25. One scholarship will be offered to a child based on need.
