“The iPad as a Plein Air Sketchbook”
with Barbara Braman
Saturday, June 12, 2021
$90 members / $120 non members
One of the great advantages to drawing on the iPad (or iPhone…) is that it is so easy to bring everywhere. I have used my iPhone to draw while I am waiting for my partner to try on suits, on a bus, in the car while waiting for an appointment, in a park. Although there are styli that work on the iPhone, the iPad offers the big advantage of using the Apple Pencil as well as more room.
We will meet in a beautiful private garden which has been in featured garden tours off 6a in Barnstable village, and after a brief orientation where I cover basic drawing techniques using the app Procreate, you can set up and start drawing. I will offer help and suggestions along the way.
You will need your iPad and Apple Pencil and if possible, something to cast shade. I will choose a location where shade is available, but you will have greater flexibility if you have a sketching umbrella or something to shade your iPad screen. Please download the app Procreate before the session. If you are curious about drawing with your iPhone, you can use Procreate’s iPhone app, Pocket. The interfaces are very similar.
Cape Cod, the Milky Way and Photopills with John Tunney
Friday and Saturday, June 4 – 5, 2021
$175 members/$195 non-members
Join fine-art photographer John Tunney for a night of fun and adventure learning to photograph the Milky Way over some of Cape Cod’s most scenic locations. This three-part workshop will combine live field shoots (masks and distancing required) with Zoom-based classroom sessions.
The workshop begins with a one-hour class session via Zoom to learn about camera settings, focus techniques, strategies to reduce noise, and processing techniques. You’ll also learn to use Photopills to plan your night shoots. You’ll be able to download a video of the presentation after the workshop for future reference.
We’ll then head out into the field a little after sunset to practice the settings and focusing techniques, and then spend the next several hours photographing the Milky Way over Cape Cod lighthouses, beaches and other scenes.
The next day we’ll reconvene via Zoom to review pictures and for final comments.
