Co-Creative Sessions: Creative Collage
June 15 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm
In this workshop, we will be guided through the transformative process of painting & collage based work through the creations of Ann Marie Gillett.
This is a hands on workshop in person and students will learn the unique 2 dimensional techniques to create their own works on paper.
Co-Creative Sessions is a free and accessible online series geared to enrich, educate and connect creatives through a series of workshops and training sessions. New Bedford is the home of artists, creatives, change makers, designers, entrepreneurs and community enthusiasts and the Co-Creative Session embraces the pulse that makes New Bedford so unique while expanding our knowledge and connections!
Funded by MassDevelopment/TDI and the Barr Foundation, this program is one component of a broader “TDI Creative Cities” initiative to boost arts-based economic development.
Ann-Marie began her art career with a BS in art education from R.I. College. She continued her postgraduate studies in painting, ceramics and printmaking at Rhode Island School of Design, Bennington College and Massachusetts School of Art and Design. After doing freelance illustration and operating a one-woman textile business (Softworks) she became a visual arts teacher (30 years) and department head (8 years) at the Wheeler School in Providence, RI for much of her professional life.
While at Wheeler Ann Marie received the first Jason and Carly Siperstein Faculty Chair for teaching excellence. She also taught adult students in the Brown University MAT program for 10 years. She currently has returned to her studio practice full time and has won awards and exhibited her work in both group and solo shows in numerous galleries throughout New England.
Ann Marie is an active member of several art groups including 19 on Paper, Seekonk Artist Network, and the Pawtucket Arts Collaborative. She also has been appointed to the Seekonk Arts Council because of her life-long involvement in the arts.
