The Artists of Perkins Cove  


"Swimmer" by Charles Woodbury

Tom Glove
r has come up with an exciting class called The Artists of Perkins Cove
(SA 7)
, focussing on the Art Colony of Ogunquit at Perkins Cove. The course will include a trip to the Ogunquit Museum as they have many paintings on display by painters from the school and a mock-up of Charles Woodbury’s studio, a key figure in the history of the Cove. As weather permits, students will meet in and around the Cove for as many plein air sessions as the season allows. A “photo hunt” to gather motifs and ideas for further study in homes/studios will be ongoing, so when the weather does turn students can switch to a remote/Zoom approach to finish up study of the Cove.
