New member of The Guild of Harwich Artists, Robin Litwin is a Harwich artist and photographer. In 2008, she retired from a 25-year career teaching in the Art Department at Cambridge Rindge and Latin High School, where her students “inspired her every day.”

For ArtWeek, Robin will be demonstrating some of the basic techniques to encaustic painting which was practiced by Greek artists as far back as the 5th century on May 3, from 12:00-2:00 PM at the Harwich Cultural Center, 204 Sisson Road, Harwich. Robin will have all the materials on hand for participants to get a feel for this unique painting method.

Hundreds of ArtWeek events will be presented across the Commonwealth during the 10-day creative festival. ArtWeek is an award-winning innovative festival featuring hundreds of unique and creative experiences that are hands-on, interactive or offer behind-the-scenes access to arts, culture, and the creative process. Now an annual statewide festival, ArtWeek was born in Boston in 2013 and recently expanded its footprint across the Commonwealth.

Presented by Highland Street Foundation and produced by the Boch Center, ArtWeek offers new ways to experience art, culture, and creativity. This year, Mass Cultural Council and the Massachusetts Office of Travel & Tourism have joined ArtWeek as Lead Champions in this unique opportunity to shine a spotlight on the state’s creative economy.
