William Partridge Burpee, Swampscott Dory, detail, 1891, Oil on canvas, 18 x 24 in., Collection of Charles J. and Irene Hamm

Inspired by the amazing seascapes of Over Life’s Waters: The Coastal Art Collection of Charles and Irene Hamm, you will build little wooden boats as well as create boats and other nautical elements on boards with wood pieces and found objects. Study the effects of waves and water by painting on paper and add 3D shapes of boats and sea creatures to produce mixed media seascapes. Imagine yourself a shipbuilder as you learn about boat construction while also discovering how colors and shades can be used to create water effects.
