300 Basic Drawing

Judy Rossman


The ability to draw is not inherited; it is a learned skill. It grows in direct proportion with growth in one’s observational skills, with the first step being able to discern the basic structure of all objects. Through a series of exercises, assignments, and homework, students will strengthen their observational and drawing skills. Composition, value studies, line, texture and color will broaden their understanding of the drawing process. This class can accommodate both beginner and intermediate levels in a supportive environment with lots of one-on-one instruction. Continuing students welcome.

343b Gelatine Platemaking and Printmaking

Esther Maschio


Gelatine platemaking and printmaking is the simplest of all plate and print methods in the world of printmaking. The less time spent on learning technique, the more time there is for your creativity to flow. It is the ‘kitchen table’ approach, in that gelatine platemaking can be done quickly with no expertise or studio equipment required; they can be made any size and recycled for additional use (permanent GELLI plates are another option). Printmaking, using these plates is also simple fare. Waterbased inks are used and applied to the plate with a brayer. Cleanup is with water, no chemicals. Simple stencils and natural materials are used easily and successfully, while overprinting multiple colors yields striking results and both positive and negative techniques give added variety to the imagery. That along with multiple paper choices make this medium well worth exploring. Students will ‘construct-destruct-construct’ gelatine images, moving them into 2D collage pieces, simple books, or 3D imagery depending on individual interests. For students with previous experience, the Gelatine technique may be combined with other forms of printmaking. Bring your curiosity and open mind and discover your inner world of amazing images. A supply list will be posted online. Sign up early!

353 Sculpting with Paper Clay

Ann Conte


Paper clay is clay that has been mixed with paper pulp. Its properties allow an innovative method of using clay which would not be possible with a regular clay body. It’s easy to use, extremely strong in its unfired stage and easy to repair at any stage in the process. When fired, it is much lighter than conventional clay and is useful for wall installations and delicate sculptural forms. Students will explore hand building and sculptural techniques that will go beyond traditional clay boundaries. Previous ceramic experience helpful.

465 Introduction to Shibori and Printing with Flowers

Alison Gordon

 

Shibori is the Japanese technique of bound and resist dying. Think of Shibori as an elegant (and more complicated) way to tie-dye. Basic Shibori techniques, including knotting, folding, wrapping, and fabric blocking, will be demonstrated and students will have an opportunity to dye several pieces in a prepared indigo bath. Indigo is one of the most popular dyes, and in this class students will not only dye in a traditional dye bath but also directly with plant material. We will discuss mordants, kitchen dyeing, and different printing techniques. Since flowers and plants are a great source of natural dyes, students are encouraged to bring in flowers, leaves, and sticks from their yard to dye with, as well as a hammer. Students will receive cotton, silk, and wool products in class to dye. Dying is not a precise technique, so students should be open to experimenting, and embrace the unexpected. A $40 materials fee will be payable to the instructor.

The Deviated Print

Esther Maschio


This class will explore non-traditional methods in printmaking which follow, then deviate from classical platemaking (from which exact duplicates of images can be produced). MONOPRINTING follows this classical line by creating a fixed matrix or plate surface which may intentionally be varied by changing colors, papers, using additive and subtractive methods. Multiple plates could also be used to create unique images...hence a one-of-a-kind mono print. A variety of images can be easily produced by overprinting collaged plates (a technique known as collograph). Akua, a soy-based, water-soluble ink makes for easy use and cleanup. You will have your own plate-registration matrix which will make overprinting a no-fail process leaving more time for your creative juices to flow. Plate sizes will be 6”x 6” OR 6”x 8”. Bring prepared imagery to the first class based on ONE of these two sizes. Paper size 11”x 15”. $15 materials fee for paper and inks.

Watercolor Basics/Working Wet

Lisa Goren


It may seem obvious but a watercolor artist has to learn to work with water. In creating this workshop, we will spend the first third of the day going over and doing exercises to highlight the basic materials of watercolor (paints, palettes, surfaces, etc.), But really, the star of the day will be water. Watercolor can seem daunting for those who never tried it or want to try it. This workshop will focus on working with water, learning how to use water to mix colors, understanding paper (and other surfaces), and using the strengths (and weaknesses) of the medium to your advantage. During the rest of the workshop, we will work on several pieces at a time, going between a still life and photos. This way we can work wet without having to wait while the sections dry. It’s unlikely that you’ll have finished an entire piece during the workshop, but will have several pieces that you can continue to work on after the workshop. The goal is to get you up and running with watercolor!

501 Masks and Mirrors: Portraiture Today/A Drawing Class

Bill Flynn


What is portraiture in the 21st century? How do you see yourself and others? We will look for new ways to visualize the portrait. What is behind the mask and how much of it do we need to see? What associations, artifacts, symbols and mediums help define the inner life? We will examine the perceptual vs. the conceptual and the direct vs. the indirect ways of arriving at images to construct an individual’s identity. Problems will be given as starting points, with some work to be done in class and outside of class. Experimentation with collage is highly encouraged and may include old letters, pages from cookbooks, art books, newspapers, plastic, wood, cloth fragments, or anything that will set the stage for the idea to build on. This course moves into the known and the unknown areas of portraiture: dare and imagination are necessary. The investigation and focus in this work will relate to how other visual concepts about your art can be developed; that is, how the portrait becomes part of an artist’s evolution through their work.

526 The Dynamics of Painting En Plein-air

Jill Pottle


Learn how to organize and orchestrate the unique colors of summer on canvas or paper.Explore the unique process of painting “en plein air” in the open air to engage with the elements directly and spontaneously. This is a three day workshop exploring the variations of light and color unique to landscape painting. For each session, students will meet at a different outdoor location. On the first day, there will be a demonstration on how to simplify form, create an effective composition, and set up a palette, and students will learn color theory. Students will produce a painting each time while learning to express forms that are often difficult to render or paint such as rocks, trees, groupings of flowers, water, reflections and other surfaces. If the weather is bad, we will meet inside and work from photos. Drawing experience is needed. Bring your outdoor easel, light weight small table, hat, bug spray, sun block, water and whatever else will make you comfortable. A suggested supply list will be available online.

542 Exploring the Print Surface—Monoprint,
Drypoint and Collagraph

Marc St. Pierre


This workshop will use a range of possible surfaces to explore mark making, textural surfaces and patterns. We will carve Sintra, draw using drypoint on PETG (a variant grade of plexiglass) and build collagraph plates. These materials have the potential to be shaped easily and composed by layering. Sintra is very versatile. It can be used for most printmaking processes and at a low cost. Sintra has a plate texture which lends itself to a very light and consistent plate tone. It is perfect for Relief printing and is easy to carve through with some some wood carving tools. The thinner Sintra is great for Drypoint and works equally well in making Collagraphs. There are a lot of materials that adhere nicely to these plates like tape and modeling paste. Another great thing about Sintra and PETG is you can easily cut the plate to any shape you want.

560 Exploring Nature and Place through Mixed
Media Drawing & Painting

Maria Malatesta


In this experimental workshop, we will explore our connection to nature and a personal sense of place. Drawing from memory, photographic reference and writing, we will attempt to deepen the understanding and inspiration that is found in the places that make us feel most alive. We will think about shapes, colors, textures and the qualities of light and space. Repetition of forms and marks, words or gouges may all enter the work. This is a drawing/painting class with the introduction of a variety of materials that include charcoal, graphite, pastel, oil bar and ways of using acrylic paints. Image transfer and collage may also be incorporated into the work. Demonstrations will be given. This is a highly process-oriented class with a focus on exploration and “play” as a way to open your work to new possibilities. The “unfinished” and “suggested” is preferred to finished and polished work. You may work from the real, abstract or imagined.
