BLACK POND STUDIO


Black Pond Studio hosts classes and workshops in painting, drawing and other disciplines in a newly constructed solar-powered barn; the space has abundant natural and studio light. The barn/studio sits on 40 acres of meadow, forest and wetlands in rural southeastern Massachusetts, about a 20-minute drive from Providence, Rhode Island, and about 60 minutes from Boston, Massachusetts. A spring-fed pond is steps from the barn. Contact us at blackpondstudio@gmail.com for the address.

OFFERINGS at Black Pond include workshops that meet for one week, as well as weekend, weekly and monthly sessions. We also offer one-day uninstructed model sessions with one pose for six hours.

TOPICS include drawing and painting from the model, still life, master copies, landscape, color workshops, and more.

CATHERINE KEHOE and NANCY McCARTHY host and lead workshops; guest artists with diverse backgrounds and approaches are also invited to teach.
