Rickie Leiter has always been fascinated by the creative process. A former art consultant in her native Massachusetts, her instinct to connect with creatives in her new Florida home led her to found The Rickie Report in 2011. This free online publication features artist stories, helpful tips for marketing, a calendar of upcoming art events, and calls to artists/artisans for both juried and non-juried shows. Rickie’s goal is to help artists, galleries, and visual arts-related organizations achieve their potential by connecting with other artists, art lovers, and patrons. Rickie’s mission is to help emerging artists achieve meaningful careers and to guide professional artists in finding their niches. She has juried exhibits, offered Art Marketing Seminars, and been a featured speaker at many art-related events. Rickie is an active member of numerous art coalitions in southeast Florida. She is always looking for a way to connect emerging artists, established artists, art promoters, and art patrons together, sometimes in the most unexpected ways.

 

 

 

Rickie earned an MSW and worked as a psychiatric social worker before changing professional paths as an art consultant. While her own creativity includes a successful career as a jewelry artist and a mosaicist, she is open to new knowledge, growth and experiences. Rickie has served as a long-time volunteer in national and international non-profits, providing her with a solid on-the-ground education for marketing, communication and leadership training. She and her husband, Jeff, publish The Rickie Report while enjoying the cultural bounties around them. Being involved with her community is important to Rickie, as she volunteers with the Ft. Pierce Jazz Society and co-chaired a juried art show in PGA Village Verano. She previously worked in Development with Dana Farber Cancer Institute and is a long- standing leader with Hadassah.

The Boca Raton Museum Art School pursues numerous formal and informal structured activities intended to inspire and train the community in various traditional and experimental creative media techniques. Through the art of teaching, critique, demonstration, and discussion groups large and small, our faculty and students explore what creativity means through guided projects in various studio environments.

 

It is the school’s direct intention to inspire and expand the practice of creative artistic expression among all age groups and abilities in a multi-disciplinary environment supported and enriched by artistic influences both local and global in reach. Through classroom, gallery, and social activities, the school emphasizes the benefits of studio thinking to inspire our patrons to improve their lives and communities both aesthetically and through the creative thought process. 

 

 

WHAT’S    NEW    AT    THE    ART    SCHOOL?

 

 

 

Tom Joule eagerly shares the latest news with The Rickie Report about the Art School.  “We announce our September classes and now you may reserve your seat online by using our  “touchless” registration process. Select classes that you are interested in (Painting, Ceramics, etc.), then the specific session you are interested in by clicking the red “register” button beneath the course days and times”.  

 

“Only our September classes are available at this time, as we test our new system live (and welcome all feedback from you as you navigate our new website).  New courses for October and beyond will be added shortly, so stay tuned!  Strict reduced enrollment requirements are being implemented so you may properly distance while in class as well as requiring anyone who enters the building to wear a mask at all times for your own safety and to protect those around you”.

 

 

 

 

WHAT    IS    REALLY   IMPORTANT?

 

 

Tom goes on to say, “It is during times of crisis that it becomes much easier to recognize and prioritize what is most important in our lives. We can see quite clearly that the Art School without students and teachers and classes is simply an empty building. Reserving a spot in an Art class today is the best way that you can become reinvigorated by the community and friends that you have come to love over so many wonderful years and ensure creative and rewarding learning opportunities for new faces and future generations”.

 

 

FALL    SESSIONS

To better serve our students and community, the Art School has been hard at work creating new and improved teaching programs, class structure and delivery methods. Our core instructors have been instrumental in helping us expand our session and workshop offerings to provide students with a rich and full learning experience.

 

 

 

 

 

Ceramics

 

 

Art meets form and function. Our ceramics instructors and classes will indulge your senses as you literally dig and carve into the 3D form, sculpting, molding, spinning, melding, and stamping to create artistic expressions or useful every day objects such as bowls, mugs, and decorations that everyone will want to call their own or simply create that perfect gift for the impossibly meaningful person in your life.

 

 

 

https://bocamuseum.org/art-school/fall-sessions

 

 

 

 

Painting

 

 

 

 

There is likely no artistic discipline with a more varied approach to individual expression and community voice than painting! From minimalist, collage, and expressionist approaches, to oil and hyper-realism, our huge variety of developmental to advanced painting classes are sure to challenge your creativity and inner voice while making lifelong friends.

Drawing

 

 

 

Like the piano is to music, drawing is the foundation of all art. Learn about lines, silhouettes, shading, form, gestures, movement, motion, dynamics, even color and emotion as you build your confidence in your observation and visual communication skills. Think you can’t draw? Spend a week with us and find out how fun it is to be wrong!

Photography

 

 

 

 

I remember that feeling like it was yesterday. That’s just the way I remember us. Can you believe that hair? I can’t believe you captured that moment! I never looked at the world that way before. Gorgeous. Ugly. Funny. Innovative. Compassionate. Love. Hate. An image literally expresses thousands of words, phrases, and feelings all at once and these days can go viral on digital platforms within minutes. Expand or narrow your vocabulary in our open and welcoming environment where award winning photographers help you find your voice through various lenses.

Ikebana

 

 

 

Sogetsu Ikebana is for everyone everywhere. Is is the art of flower arrangement, rooted in tradition, but ever-changing. The Japanese characters of the Sogetsu School (Ryu) represent grass, moon, and stream. Grass grows everywhere, the moon is seen by everyone, a stream is always moving. The art form is a product of skill and creativity using flowers, branches and either conventional or unconventional materials in order to express the beauty and harmony of nature and the imagination and creativity of the designer.

Youth

 

 

 

 

There is no humanity without creative expression. There is no motivation without the ability to express individualism as well as our collective voice. Allow our Youth Art Classes to guide your family through the informal and formal processes of artistic expression in a welcoming and supportive environment guided by discipline, historical context, current events, and how individual and group visual movements and communication methodology contribute to society. Fun and approachable projects are interwoven with intellectual conversations, support, and insights encouraging individual growth and confidence.

Peggy Kirkwood tells The Rickie Report how she was able to arrange  partnering with the Georgia Watercolor Society for this premiere workshop with Pat Dews.  Peggy said,”During our COVID-19 reopening, while preparing for my Online LIVE! ZOOM watercolor classes, I’ve been admiring Pat Dews “Discoveries in Watermedia” book along with multiple images I’ve come across in past issues of Palette Magazine and Watermedia Focus by Skip Lawrence and Christopher Schink. I came across an article about Pat Dews and began reading. The article mentioned she lived in Hobe Sound at the time. I think the article was written back in 1995 or so. I emailed Pat to ask her if she might be interested in doing a workshop with The New Studio in 2021. The very next day Pat called me in tears. A new friendship was immediately formed”!

Peggy continues, “Pat said, in tears, “You have no idea of what you’ve just done!” I’m thinking, “She’s in tears ut oh…What have I just done?” Pat explained that she has never been involved with the South Florida Artist Community because she travels so much doing her workshops throughout the world. She and her husband just signed a contract on their home of over 45 years in the North East. Pat and her best friend have shared a studio in this Northeastern town and have painted during the summers together over this 45 year period. She cannot travel north to pack up her home and studio because of the COVID virus. All of her workshops have been cancelled through the end of the year due to the virus. She was so happy to hear about The New Studio. I explained to Pat that we were just down US1 in Jupiter and now open with social distancing and wearing masks. I invited Pat to come to the Studio on Friday of the week to see our space and how I am set up for my Online LIVE! Zoom classes. I suggested we could possibly partner with her and the other organizations to do her workshops from The New Studio via ZOOM Online LIVE!. Pat’s first cancelled workshop was to be in August”.

 

 

“Unnamed” by Pat Dews

 

It was organic, as Peggy describes, “Pat came to the Studio, loved the space, loved the light,  and enjoyed meeting our “Social Distancing with Masks” students. We scheduled a ZOOM meeting with Viviane Van Giesen, the new President of the Georgia Watercolor Society. Another friendship immediately formed”!

 

“Viviane saw our set up via ZOOM and suggested she meet with her Board of Directors to see if they would be interested in reinstating the workshop and offering it Online LIVE with Zoom from The New Studio. I’m pleased to let you know Pat is doing a LIVE! Opening Ceremony Awards Presentation on August 22nd for GWS’s Member Show Opening along with a 3 day “Abstracting Nature” workshop via ZOOM and NSVA on Aug. 27, 28, 29, 2020. Times for the workshop are 9 am to 12 pm. The cost is $200.00. Registration is through GWS”.

 

 

The excitement continues!  Peggy shares, “In addition, Pat will be doing another workshop via ZOOM and NSVA with an organization in Indiana sometime in Oct. 2020 along with another workshop to be announced soon!  Pat called me last week to tell me, “I just want you to know that you are never getting rid of me!” Such an amazing blessing and opportunity for future collaborations creating win/win situations for all!!! I truly believe this was not a coincidence but by the Grace of God”!

 

Pat Dews shares, “Rather than painting the realistic image before me, I paint the abstract essence of my subject. I am drawn to the abstract shapes and textures of flowers, rocks, water, bridges, old and rusted metal and crumbled walls.  In my three day online workshop, streamlined with Zoom through the New Studio for the Visual Arts, Inc. in Jupiter, FL we will cover much ground.  The main focus is design, which is everything. Through lectures, demos and design projects, students will learn how to compose paintings based on the Principles and Elements of Design. Critiques of my paintings in progress will significantly help you on your painting journey. 

 

I love to share what I know and help make better painters.  I give 150 % and students often tell me, that they never work the same again.  There will be an opportunity after the workshop to have private critiques with Pat from her home through FaceTime.
Hoping you join us for a dynamic journey”.

Watch Yochi speak about a Self Portrait

 

 

 

Yochi Yakir-Avin tells The Rickie Report, “I am a Visual Artist. I was born in Poland, raised in Israel, traveled to Italy to receive my BFA in sculpture and painting from the Academy of Arts “Brera” in Milan. My work has been exhibited in museums and art galleries, and I have participated in art events in Italy, Israel and the United States.  My works is featured in various public and private collections around the world. In 2014 I relocated to South Florida and established my studio, where I create and teach”. 

 

“Truth And Beauty” by Yochi Yakir-Avin

 

 

 

She continues, “I usually work in series creating more than one version of my subjects, focusing on simplicity and abstraction, and using both traditional and mixed media techniques. My work is my journey to connect with my history, my story and past, and to move forward. Every painting is part of my memories and feelings arsenal, often quiet and thought provoking and I’m always looking to improve by pushing myself further. While underlining my subjects most intriguing characteristics, I connect with them emotionally, striving to bring my personal point of view, as well as creating a meaningful engaging experience for the viewers”.

 

 

“IN Between” is a retrospective presenting select works created by Yakir-Avin between 2015-2020. The exhibition reflects her technical education in Israel and Italy, and displays Yakir-Avin’s ability to communicate clearly through both figuration and abstraction. Her command of multiple media and techniques is demonstrated through oil paintings on canvas, mixed media works on paper and wood, and sculptural pieces that walk the line between art object and everyday furnishings.

 

 

 

“Under Blue Skies” by Yochi Yakir-Avin

 

 

Conveyed via a masterfully limited palette, her subjects are framed against swaths of monochromatic color and emphasize notions of mood, place and implied narrative. Within her intimate mixed media pieces on paper and wood, the artist draws creative inspiration from her past and allows her memories to weave together to drive her practice forward. Through a tangible sense of vulnerability embedded in each of her works, the artist aims to offer hope, comfort and peace to the viewer – resulting in a subtle message of optimism that is necessary at all times, particularly now.

 

 

 

Yochi paints realistic series of portraits and still life in oil colors, creates mixed media wall sculptures, and elaborated transfer techniques pieces on paper and wood. Throughout her work is noticeable her restricted choice of colors, as well as monochromatic backgrounds, that serve to sustain and frame her subjects, to reflect particular mood, and as a reminder of places and stories. Her work is a journey to connect with her story and past, and to move forward. She also creates mixed media wall sculptures, as well as intricate transfer pieces on paper and wood.

She is a recording artist, composer, performer and vocal coach. A well-known and active musician in Boston, MA, Yves is also Yochi Yakir-Avin’s sister.

Each class is for an hour and a half in 4-week sessions.  The students say they love the classes not only from what they learn, but from the camaraderie that’s developed among them!  The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks of Fran’s and her students’ artwork.

Fran Goodman with one of her students at an exhibit

 

Fran tells The Rickie Report, “Every week, I introduce a different abstract expressionist, usually from the 40’s and 50’s. I share their stories and their struggles — many whose paintings today sell for hundreds of millions were as poor as paupers. Then the students and I analyze their paintings for composition, color (especially values) and design”.

 

“Snowberries” by Fran Goodman

 

 

As a weekly assignment, the students are to “channel” these artists’ styles into their own paintings which they do at home, using various layering techniques and unique applicators and tools. The following week, the students return to show case their paintings in a group critique.

Fran has been a student in Larry Poons master class at the Art Student League. She abides by his approach that there are no goals in abstract expressionist painting. “One stroke leads to the next.” She encourages her students to watch the movie he is in on HBO called, “The Price of Everything,”

 

“Hawaii” by Fran Goodman

 

She tells us more about her classes, saying “Every week, I introduce a different abstract expressionist, usually from the 40’s and 50’s.  I share their stories and their struggles — many whose paintings today sell for hundreds of millions were as poor as paupers. Then the students and I analyze their paintings for composition, color (especially values) and design”.

 

 

“A1A” by Fran Goodman

Fran’s paintings have been exhibited in galleries in New Jersey, the Chelsea district of Manhattan and Southern Florida, and are in private collection in New York, Florida, Toronto, and Hollywood, CA.  Fran is a Signature Artist of the Boca Raton Museum of Art, a member of the Art Students League in NY, Art Serve, the National Association of Women Artists, and, the Delray Art League, where she is the Arts Education Fund Chair.

 

She teaches “Not Your Ordinary Painting Class” where she blends art history with contemporary applications in Abstract Expressionism in various locations in Palm Beach County. Her classes have been featured in two cover stories which can be found on her website. Fran currently runs a virtual class on her craft for the Institute for Learning in Retirement in Boca Raton. She invites opportunities to do commissions, lectures, demos and private lessons as well.

 

“During my life I have created projects, seminars, support groups and trainings in the United States and Canada to inspire growth and self-esteem. Whether it was through my business as spokeswoman for women’s beauty rights, or through Toastmasters as a mentor to many, or as an art educator; whether I was addressing men, women or teens of all ages and all walks of life, I looked for their potential and then empowered them to be their best selves. To me, there is no greater reward than witnessing people flower and bloom.”  Fran’s Artist statement tells us, “I approach the canvas with a desire to fuse color with texture, free of intention, tradition and norms. I count on layering properties to burn a life force into even the smallest structures. My strokes, some obscure, some undefined, personify difference and sameness and how the two natures work in concert with one another.”

Judy Burgarella Teaches a Virtual Art Class

 

 

JUDY      BURGARELLA

THURSDAY     JULY, 9, 2020

1 – 4 PM

REGISTER:  www.verobeachartclub.org

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Judy Burgarella spends a lot of time designing her class so that people will not fail.  When they sign up, she sends them a lined pattern, and in class she shows them how to get that pattern onto the canvas.  She explains, “This is not a drawing class, it’s a painting class. Drawing takes years to learn.  Even if some of them do not have a “masterpiece,” they will have learned a lot of tips and tricks to add to their knowledge of painting”.  Many of her students have said that they have learned more in her class than any other class they have taken.  “For 3 hours, I never shut up.  I am hoping to get many other artists onboard to teach this class so that we have diversity and variety to offer”.

 

 

 

“Portrait on Palette” Private Commission by Judy Burgarella

 

 

 

Judy Burgarella tells The Rickie Report, “My career in business involved mostly administration/ secretarial work, and printing and editing. As my passion to pursue art became stronger I began writing and designing for arts & crafts magazines, in addition to running my own secretarial service. I eventually started an art club, the “Shoreline Plein Air Painters” in Connecticut”. 

 

 

 

“View From A Cottage Window” by Judy Burgarella

A view from through the window of an historic house in Rockport, Massachusetts.  In one of the graves rests the actual builder of the house who was the son of the founder of Rockport. 

 

 

 

In 2005, Judy and her husband Bob moved to Florida, and she soon joined the Vero Beach Art Club and other local arts organizations, where she became very active, helping out with shows and wherever her skills were needed. In 2012 her daughter Robin and family moved to Sebastian, and Judy currently helps her with her real estate business staging homes and using her own paintings in the décor.

 

 

“Heritage Center” by Judy Burgarella In A Private Collection

 

 

 

Judy has studied under renowned artists in Connecticut and Florida, and has taught painting and drawing for over 20 years. She currently teaches portrait painting at the Vero Beach Museum of Art, general art at Indian River Estates, and does free-lance classes and demonstrations for groups and individuals. Judy is constantly on the lookout for new creative opportunities, and ways to give back to the community.

Using Zoom To Your Best Advantage And Some Pitfalls To Avoid

The Rickie Report shares some helpful hints to make a Zoom experience more productive for you and your fellow ‘Zoomers’.  If you’re not familiar with Zoom as a face-to-face meeting platform in current time, you’ll need to get up to speed (pun intended).  This easy-to-use app allows you to collaborate with others for work as well as celebrate events with others who are far flung.  The Rickie Report shares some blips we’ve experienced as well as technical tips.

 

 

 

 

Using Zoom

To Enhance Communications For

Artists, Arts Organizations, Art Patrons, Anyone

Think of a Zoom meeting like being face-to-face

Eliminate distractions and focus on the agenda.

 

 

Download the free Zoom app days before your scheduled meeting.

 

If you are a newbie, make sure you familiar/comfortable using the features (mute/unmute, start/stop video, screen share, raise your hand).

 

Join the Zoom session early – up to 5 minutes before the meeting start time.

 

Notifications from messaging applications, ringtones, and applications running on your desktop can be distracting, which can make your attendees feel disrespected and undervalued. Mitigating these distractions helps keep the meeting focused and free from interruption.

 

Zoom amplifies everything!  From smiles to frowns, from inescapable noises to your behavior.

Be aware!

If you are the host, offer an agenda with the Zoom invitation

(Attendees – be prepared)

Make sure to introduce everyone at the beginning.

 

Just like an in-person meeting or social event, you would initiate a conversation between two acquaintances who haven’t met by introducing them. The same principle applies to a virtual meeting. Be sure to introduce all parties you are hosting at the beginning to create a welcoming environment and stimulate engagement toward a common goal.

Show Up At Your Best (Meeting Etiquette)

 

There are some general rules of courtesy for virtual (and in person) business meetings.

Be ready – just as if this meeting was taking place in person!

Wear appropriate clothing ( PJ’s are not OK unless this is a Zoom PJ Party).

Loud clothing or sparkling accessories will distract from the message you’re sharing during the Zoom session.

No Nudity ( Did I really have to say that ??  From experience, yes…yes, I did!)

Background

You want everyone’s focus to be on the meeting content.  Have a clean setting with work-appropriate art and decorations to reduce the chance that attendees will get distracted.  Your surroundings say a lot about you and you want to make a good impression, just as if you were hosting at your home!  Showing dirty clothes in a pile and an unmade bed make people wonder if you can be professional and trusted with serious work.

 

Clean up and have a simple background (a plain wall, a potted plant, or a bookshelf works perfectly, a wall filled with artwork).Zoom also provides virtual backgrounds to help you avoid the most cluttered environments.

Some people change their background with a photo.  Zoom’s virtual background feature is an easy way to eliminate background distractions when you have to meet in a messy or busy location.

A few words of caution about virtual backgrounds:

Avoid bright colors which distract from your face

Avoid video beach scenes with waves that actually move, which make some people nauseous.

Lights, camera, action! Note, the first item here is about LIGHTING. Position yourself so that most of the light is coming from in front of you (behind your monitor), instead of behind you. If you have a window behind you, shut the blinds. Otherwise, you will be backlit.

Volume/Mute  &  Audio/Video

Photo Courtesy of Pressmaster

 

Video is crucial in building trust and engagement in virtual communications.

Test your video and audio before your meeting at zoom.us/test.

 

 

 Look into the camera when talking instead of looking at yourself.

 

If you’re looking at yourself on the screen while you’re talking, it will seem like you are distracted.  Direct eye contact into the camera while speaking gives attendees the impression that you are looking at them rather than off to the side, which creates an environment where everyone feels engaged and involved in the current conversation.

 

Be sure to position your web camera and monitor at eye level so you can look into the camera and simulate that eye-to-eye connection with other attendees.

Before you go into the Zoom meeting, notice where your screen is placed.

Especially take note of the angle of your laptop screen if using the built-in camera.

If you place your iPad on the table, with you looking down at it, please note: No one wants to look up into your nostrils.

We also don’t want to see your ceiling!

Even when your screen is in a separate room from other people, remember that if your door is open and the screen is at the proper angle, we should not be able to see anyone leaving the bathroom wrapped in a towel.

Have your video on unless you are experiencing technical issues.

Find a quiet space without interruptions or background noise.

Mute your microphone when not talking.

Avoid talking over or at the same time as other participants.

Keep your hands down, away from your face and mouth. Not only is this distracting, but it muffles your voice when you want to speak.

Behavior

 

Photo Courtesy of Juan Pablo Serrano Arenas

 

Be aware that you are on camera and try to avoid doing other tasks, checking emails, looking at your phone.

Please mute yourself  (I would say “Stifle yourself, Edith”, but many of you will not get the reference to “All In The Family”) so we don’t hear your phone ring, dog bark, or kids scream.

Please refrain from having a side conversation with someone in the actual room with you.

If you are using Zoom in a more casual setting, please be aware of your body language and how you sit.

If you decide to play Candy Crush while watching the Zoom meeting, please block your video. (I got dizzy yesterday from watching you move your thumbs and a bit annoyed that you were not paying attention).

If you can, avoid eating meals during your meeting. Imagine how unappealing it would be to watch someone up close slurping a plate of spaghetti on a big screen. If you can, wait until your meeting is over.

 

 

Stay or Leave

Leaving the frame without explaining why

 

If you need to get up from a meeting for any reason ( bathroom break, get a drink, or focus on a child or pets), be courteous, just as you would be in an in-person situation.  Leave a message in the chat option to indicate you will be back and have not left the meeting.

Turn off your video camera until you return

Turn off your volume until you return

Recording

 

 

 

Photo courtesy of 500photos.com

 

 

Often, meetings are recorded. In this case, your words and your actions. Just be aware that even though you may be sitting in your home or personal space, you are participating in a somewhat public event.

Refrain from private behavior (picking at your toes, scratching your armpits, picking your nose) (Again, I mention these specific behaviors because I have observed them in other Zoom meetings).

What you say, how you react, how to look will be saved for posterity!

 

 

Chat Room

 

Even though there is a “chat” function, please keep comments to a minimum.

It is distracting for others in the meeting and just as rude as if you were face-to-face and interrupting the speaker.

 

The host leaves last

 

 

Photo Courtesy of Matilda Wormwood

As hosts to any meeting or party, we usually stay until everyone else leaves.  Zoom is no different.  Attendees may use this time to socialize or get a few words in before the session ends. For stragglers, you may have to remind them that the session is about to end.
