Joan LaTourneau

Learning to draw and paint has been on my bucket list since childhood.  Watercolors is my preferred medium, but I have also done some art work in acrylics.

I started by doing my pets pictures, which I am told look like photographs. However. I find landscapes challenging, and would like to learn how to do impressionist style paintings. For a number of years I have continued to work toward expanding by art knowledge by taking classes with Denise Rainis, Rita Lipman and Stella Pappas.

Stan Sundstrom

I am a retired software engineer who took up photography as a hobby a few years ago. Some of my favorite places to photograph are Heart Pond, the Chelmsford/Carlisle Cranberry Bog and Great Brook Farm Reservation. Fall and Winter are the seasons I enjoy most for capturing landscapes. I like exploring the natural juxtaposition of light and shade.

Raksha Soni Demonstration
November 17, 2021

The second artist of the season to present for the CAS is Raksha Soni. She will be doing an acrylic painting demonstration on the subject of “Dawn”. Please join us at the Chelmsford Center for the Arts at 7:00 PM on November 17th or remotely via this Live Stream link:

Raksha’s artwork has received numerous awards, and has been displayed at various charities in both India and the US. In her own words: “Art is a foundational part of my life, and I try to spend my free time experimenting with it. I express my gratitude, emotions, and admiration for nature and Mother Earth through color. My inspiration comes from the many sources: places I travel to, nature, architecture, culture and the people around me. The creative process gives me tremendous joy, satisfaction, and a sense of great accomplishment, and I hope this beautiful journey of self-discovery continues forever.”

Bruce Wood
Demonstration
October 27, 2021

The first presentation for the new CAS Season is by Bruce Wood at the CCA on October 27th at 7:00 PM

Title: “Seeing through the eyes of an artist.”

Discovering shape, patterns and texture in everyday life and turning it into artworks.  The idea behind found art is that the piece of art derives its significance from the context into which it is put. Found art blurs the traditional lines of what is art and questions the very nature of art itself. Found objects are often used by artists and are repurposed to create their unique pieces of art.

“I love the challenge of taking discarded items and assembling them in a fashion that looks like they naturally belonged together.”

Bruce Wood
