Susan Murie has lived in the Boston area for 40 years. She attended the University of
Massachusetts and the University of Texas studying Theater. At UMass Susan picked
up a camera and learned darkroom skills which began a concentrated interest in the
still image. She has been creating prints and layered paper collages with cyanotypes
since 2009. Susan enjoys traveling and spending time with her daughter in Chicago.

Amantha Tsaros: https://www.amanthatsaros.com/

Amantha is an exuberant native of Boston whose game attempts at disguising her accent are often successful and rarely appreciated.  She earned a BFA and MFA from the School of Visual Arts, NY.  She was engaged in independent study of etching and printmaking in Hamburg Germany for two years before returning to Massachusetts and her first love, painting.  She works in her Medford MA studio and is a member of the Cambridge Art Association.

Ted Ollier: http://www.mindhuestudio.com/wordpress/

Ted Ollier was born in the midwest, lived in the south, and now resides in the northeast. He has been a photographer, graphic designer, bass player, typographer, web pioneer, informational leafblower and armchair philosopher. He has also worked a variety of day-jobs, the details of which are not terribly important.

Stephanie Todhunter:  http://www.stephanietodhunter.com/

Stephanie Todhunter is an interdisciplinary artist based outside of Boston, MA. Her work captures the “lost-in-place” feeling of 1970’s latchkey kids.

We just finished up our first cyanotype workshop and it was a huge success!  The weather cooperated, the students were lovely and we all learned about a fascinating kind of art making…

Sculptural Painting Classes in Lowell

KT Lane O’brien is teaching a Sculptural Painting Series at The Refuge in Lowell MA, starting in early August.

Sculptural PaintingSculptural Painting (Fun for all ages!)

Price $260.00

Instructor: Katie O’Brien

In this course, students will be using traditional methods of collage and paint, in conjunction with sculptural materials, to create a form that functions as a 2D and a 3D piece of art. Participants will form a more critical eye for the colorful environments around them, while learning more about how the dynamics of gravity can add to their work. Additionally, a special focus will be placed on exploring the benefits of embracing the balance of control and chance into their artistic practice.

8/4, 8/5, 8/11, 8/12
10am – 1pm

No prerequisite required. Dress for class expecting to get messy! ALL MATERIALS PROVIDED… personal sketchbooks or notepads are encouraged!

Katie Lane O’Brien received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from a small program at the New England School of Art and Design at Suffolk University where her love of all things paint was fostered and explored at an intimate individual level. Her journey has led her through various genres from large scale abstracts to photo realism.  Most days, Katie can be found in her studio experimenting with different ways to make a mess, playing with different textures, and making off-the-wall paintings.

Her work can be found at www.kt-lane.com or on her Instagram @terriblepainteater
