501 Forget the Details! Paint with Expression! A Pastel Workshop

Shelly Eager

Many of us seem to get so caught up with details—our lives are run by details—but our paintings should not! Spend two days with pastel artist Shelly Eager to learn new ways to let go of the details and paint the impression of a scene with expression. Shelly will guide students through many loosening-up activities and provide practical tips on how to let go of all the tightness we tend to paint with. You will feel freer and more energetic by the end of this workshop!

527 Small Format Landscape Drawing the Painting

Kathleen Jacobs

Come paint the inspiring landscape and embrace the exciting challenge of painting and drawing outdoors. Simple hikes will take class members to the riverbanks, the edge of marshes, and the coastline. Initially, there will be an emphasis on drawing the form and structure of the landscape, seeking a certain grace and order from nature. There will be an added emphasis on finding visual unity when composing a sketch that will eventually become a painting. Working small, participants will work quickly to build their paintings allowing the process of drawing from life to create work with a spirit of place. Students of intermediate to advanced levels are welcome, open to all painters using oil, watercolor, acrylic or gouache.

502 From Observation to Metaphor—Revisited

William Flynn

This workshop will stress finding your own way of transforming the literal world into a poetic visual experience. Our goal will be developing a personal perspective toward your own art process. Throughout our time we will move from observation to discovery and transformation. We will explore the language of marks, shapes and visual organization through serious play. We’ll take some time to look at the evolution of drawing through art history and the techniques that made it visible and changed our ways of seeing. A model will be in the beginning of each class. The major requirement is energy, enthusiasm and lots of paper!!!

522 Painting Large

Emily Passman

Get out of your comfort zone, and paint large! Learn how to let go of the details and create more impact by using larger shapes and powerful areas of color and value. Have you envisioned or dreamed of how freeing it might be to really loosen up, use a big brush on a big canvas, and truly engage in responsive and emotional color play? In this two-day workshop we will use paper or canvas, 24 x 30 inches and larger. Working with photos and still life tablescapes, you will learn skills that will allow you to simplify, loosen up, take chances with color, and create large and powerful artworks. You can do it!

540 Photo Polymer Printmaking

Marc St. Pierre

This workshop is an introduction to working with photo polymer plates. These plates can produce good results with photographic imagery as well as direct drawing. The plates can yield delicate tonal range and rich deep blacks. Through the use of colored inks, multi-plate printing, and chine colle, the plates can also yield beautiful color prints. We’ll be working with photographic imagery that the participant will have the opportunity to alter at many points in the process with digital manipulation, drawing, scratching, or the addition of painterly marks. The workshop is open to beginners with no printmaking experience as well as experienced printmakers. It can also be used as an introduction or a re-fresher course for those familiar with the process. Plates will be available for purchase during the workshop.

10/5, 10/6, 10/7 Fri–Sun 9:30–4:00
