April Vacation Week Art Camp for Teenagers at the Farnsworth
with Ingrid Ellison

From Tuesday through Thursday, April 16 to 18, 2019, the Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland will host an art camp for teenagers taught by artist Ingrid Ellison. The program, entitled Keeping a Visual Journal—Teen Edition, will take place at the Gamble Education Center, at the corner of Union and Grace Streets in Rockland, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day.

Journals provide a space to reflect, observe, dream, and rant in a truly personal creative space—the painted page. The nature of keeping a journal is perfect for discovering new forms of expression both through content and materials. From collecting to collaging, drawing to doodling, creating secret envelopes to writing prompts, the Farnsworth Art Museum’s three-day workshop led by artist Ingrid Ellison will introduce teenagers to a variety of art materials and processes both traditional and unconventional for capturing daily inspiration on a painted page. Class time will include lots of demonstrations, inspiration, prompts, and time for snack breaks and optional sharing. Please bring a bag lunch.

Ingrid Ellison is a painter and art instructor working in oil, mixed media, and printmaking. She is a graduate of Skidmore College and earned her MFA from American University. Since moving to Maine in 2007, Ellison has exhibited at the Center for Maine Contemporary Art, Åarhus Gallery, the University of Maine–Bangor, and the Cynthia Winings Gallery. She has a passion for sharing what she does with a greater community and makes connections with both school-aged and adult students.

The fee for this class is $90, plus a $5 materials fee payable to the instructor. Partial scholarships are available; please inquire at education@farnsworthmuseum.org. For more information or to register, please visit www.farnsworthmuseum.org.
