Painted sculpture heart project installed in Carmel-by-the-Sea

After last year's success with the heart auction for Carmel-by-the-Sea, Alyson was asked to paint a second sculpture heart. The hearts were unveiled on August 15, 2022 and are now available to bid on thru October 6, 2022. 

A portion of the proceeds will go to the Carmel Foundation, a local charity supporting seniors.

Sculpture location: in The Carmel Plaza below the Anthropologie store.
There are 5 other hearts around town so be sure to walk and see them all!

Nantucket, MA - Group Workshop

Create your own Greeting Card Collection

August 22-24th, 2022 | 10-1pm EST
Hosted by the Artist Association of Nantucket 


About the Workshop

Explore the joy of watercolor while learning new techniques and approaches for creating your own greeting cards! Alyson teaches students to develop and refine their art into original illustrations that can be sent as originals or reproduced as a series. Some illustrative art that will be explored are flower boxes, nautical flags, whales, and lighthouses. Along the way, Alyson will share her process and finish the workshop by pairing the completed cards with a colorful selection of envelopes in a boxed in set.

Alyson de Guigné is a visiting artist from Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA. She runs Freedom Art, whose greeting cards and other products can be found in stores across the country including Whole Foods, Draeger's Markets & a number of local favorites on Nantucket.

Why we love ACK

The energy of a Nantucket summer is unlike anything else you have ever experienced! If you are looking for a beautiful place to unwind while feeling a current of energy as strong as the tides, summer is a great time to visit. The advantage of taking this workshop is that you will immediately meet like-minded, creative people.

Nantucket is the perfect melting pot of New York City culture + island vibes + pastel preppy everywhere you look. I have met some of the most interesting people while painting on the island: actors, oyster farm proprietors, candle makers, Jamaican Uber drivers…the list goes on. The beaches are clean, the food is superb and the frose’ at Cisco Brewers is the best you will ever have.

I cannot wait to see you in August!
