The Lightness of Painting – This Monday at CMS!

Makers,

This Monday, from 6 – 8 PM join Springfield, VT based artist Jamie Townsend as he shares his process of painting layers and color in this hands-on class.  Grow your confidence and style by learning techniques to overcome difficulties on the canvas. All levels of practice are encouraged to attend, as well as bringing a reference photo or idea to personalize your own painting. Student’s will complete an expressive painting in this class. Materials will be included. Age level 16 and up. To register, please go here.

Monday is the last day to apply for the CMS Artist in Residence Program!

Are you a NH-based artist/maker looking for space, funds, and an incredible set of tools to create your next project? Check out the CMS Artist In Residence Program!

This program is designed to spur innovative, creative projects by regional artists, by supporting selected applicants with CMS membership, a studio space, $600 towards work created at the CMS and $200 towards classes to learn how to use new tools. All mediums and levels of experience are invited to apply.

In the News

This week, The Eagle Times wrote a feature on our current Artist in Residence, Allison Zito. Allison spoke about her installation (currently on display at the CMS lobby) and what has inspired her to develop it.

“I like to make a statement with my work, but there’s a lot of ugliness that I don’t want to contribute to more than I must. When I teach children or adults I like to show them the greatest of human achievements.”

CMS was also featured in the article ‘Regional program is key to helping rural communities’ in the Keene Sentinel, written by New Hampshire Representatives Jeanne Shaheen and Ann Kuster.

The economic opportunities available through the NBRC (Northern Borders Regional Commission) cast a wide net, which makes this program an excellent asset for our cities and towns. One of the best examples of this is the Claremont MakerSpace, which was awarded $250,000 in 2015 to get the project off the ground, renovating an old manufacturing building to house a shared work space for Granite State craftsmen and entrepreneurs. Director of the Claremont MakerSpace Josh Bushueff said: “The support of NBRC was instrumental in our successful conversion of a former brownfield site into the Claremont MakerSpace, an 11,000-square-foot facility that is now the hub of education, entrepreneurship and job skills training in downtown Claremont.

Make A Silver Ring!

Makers,

Tomorrow, join us for Make A Silver Ring! Have you seen all of the pictures of beautiful rings that people have made in our jewelry studio? Well, now it’s your turn. While learning the basics of silver-smithing, the instructor will guide you through various options for how to embellish your band, the shape of which you will get to choose. Join us Wednesday to make your own.

This Sunday: Interested in how to solder LED’s and get into the art of electronics? Join us for a fun project during Make LED Dice.  Build a digital die that uses LEDs and a tilt sensor to light up randomly when you shake it.  Everything screws down to an acrylic plate that makes it both durable and functional. Family pairs (adult / child aged 10+) assembling a die together are welcome.
