Descriptions

Ron Krouk - Drawn to Paint: Still Life and Figure

Drawn to Paint: Still Life and Figure

All Levels

Medium: Charcoal, Pencil and Brush

Instructor: Ron Krouk

Four observational drawing skills stand out as especially important and helpful to anyone who hasn't practiced them enough:  seeing gesture, contour, straight lines/angles and flat shape.  They do not comprise the way we see the world every day but they can be learned and practiced and come to feel natural.    In this class you'll experience and practice these to bring their benefits to your own approach.  The focus will be on drawing as the first step in painting - trying out ideas, composing, establishing proportion, etc.  Students will work from both still life and the model, stressing their similarities rather than their differences. Each class will begin with shorter drawings to introduce or practice these skills and end with a longer exercise.   For those who wish to take the painting class which follows this one, the drawing will often serve as the first step for painting of the same set-up or  pose. (This class will include a model fee directly paid to the instructor)

Ron Krouk - Still Life and Figure Painting Explorations

Still Life and Figure Painting Explorations

All Levels

Medium: Oil and Acrylics

Instructor: Ron Krouk

In this painting class, students will work with both still and live models, stressing their similarities rather than differences as painting subjects. Some painting "constraints", chosen to encourage intelligent simplification, will guide the work and keep the focus on heightened attention to value relationships, organization of larger shapes, decisive color choices, and confident use of paint. Students will generally take about one hour to work out the necessary drawing, then spend about two hours to complete the painting. For those who also register for the morning drawing class, it will be a great warm-up for painting and often the last drawing will be the foundation for the afternoon painting. (This class will include a model fee directly paid to the instructor)

Exercises involving collage, limited color schemes, and fabric samples will encourage artists to simplify and invent. This workshop is open to all medium.

Drawing and painting on paper is a fresh and direct way to work, because the surface allows for fluidity without hesitation. Whether your work is abstract or representational, using your intuitive hand while responding to materials will bring out spontaneity and a different approach to your practice. In this class, Kathy will assist you to thoughtfully explore your unique imagery with line and color - both wet and dry. During each session there will be exercises to flex your imagination and mark-making along with demos and critiques.

Emily Passman - Painting with a New Vision

Painting with a New Vision

All Levels

Medium: Acrylics and Oil

Instructor: Emily Passman

In this 4 week workshop artists will learn new techniques to reduce the complexity of their surroundings and bring their paintings to a new sense of basic simplicity and beauty. Learn to see what is essential in a scene (landscape, table-scape or interior) and how to create a fresh, new paint sketch with only what’s needed! Let’s take the complicated world, and through learned techniques, hand it back to the viewer in a whole new way! Basic painting skills are required, and a willingness to find a quicker, gestural approach by using some simple exercises is key. Most work will be done on paper from life and photos. In addition to studio work, we will be doing some plein air paint sketches on nice days.
