Good morning, Joey!

Lots of CSA choices this summer!

Art With Kurt- Ankeny Studio Open for 2010!

Ankeny Studio Open for 2010!
Regular Hours begin this weekend

Dear Joey,

Spring is in full swing and Ankeny Studio is open again after a long productive winter. We also have classes being offered on a regular basis. Please stop by or call if you need more information.

Classes for 2010

Profile Sketch I have ongoing classes scheduled for this year, one for drawing and one for painting.

THURSDAY DRAWING CLASS
Held from 6:30-8:30pm each Thursday, this class covers the basics of observational drawing. We will start you with basic still lifes and then move to more advanced subjects like the human form and face. Summer may yield some opportunities for plein air sketching as well, once the daylight holds all class period.

SATURDAY PAINTING CLASS
Held from 10-Noon each Saturday, this class covers the basics of handling paint and capturing a likeness of your subject no matter what your medium. We will cover whatever subjects are of interest to students, including still life, human forms and landscapes. The nice spring weather has already allowed us a few plein air sessions down at Lane’s Cove, so come and join us!

Classes are $25/session or you can purchase a 10-class punch card for $180, which works out to $18/session. Please contact me at this email or at 978-281-2803  if you have further questions or need additional information. Students of all ages and skill levels are welcomed. Class sizes are limited to 4 students for the time being due to space limitations. This means you get plenty of personal attention!

I hope to see you at Ankeny Studio soon!
Sincerely,

Kurt Ankeny

About Hive

Hi There

The Hive is equal parts working studio, gallery event space & clubhouse for the younger generation of Cape Ann creative folk. We formed early in 2009 to encourage art & idea collaborations, support systems and the creation of links between individuals and their community as a whole.

Mission

The Hive seeks to build community by providing a space for arts exploration, cross-pollination of ideas and promoting creative and active lifestyles on Cape Ann.

Our Blog

This blog is our mainline of communication. Content ranges from what’s happening at the The Hive, to what our contributing artists are currently working on, to general info of what’s going on on Cape Ann and the surrounding area.

Artists & Community

We are a pretty diverse crew, ranging both in our artistic styles as well as our passions. However, we find common ground in our vision to unite the creative & active community and make Cape Ann a more unique place. Check out our profiles to learn more about us.

Why?

For a place that has such a rich history with the arts, sometimes it feels like the current scene is much too focused on traditional fine art and is lacking on support for new mediums. Our gallery at The Hive sprouted from the fact that we have so many local friends doing interesting work, without a clear venue to show it.
