Descriptions

Martha Wakefield - Alchemy of Color 2

Alchemy of Color 2

Medium: All Mediums

Instructor: Martha Wakefield

“Each color lives by its mysterious life,” said Wassily Kandinsky. In these classes, we will delve deeper into understanding the mysteries and properties of color through explorations of pigment personalities to color psychology for creating dynamic, expressive and meaningful color choices. Artists will strengthen their color knowledge through exercises, demos, critiques and examining classic and contemporary art. Students should have a general understanding of color properties and preferably taken Alchemy of Color Part 1.

The Unique Image: Drawing and Painting with Acrylics on Paper

Medium: Acrylics

Instructor: Kathy Deflice-Secor

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. 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.

Capturing the Light in Plein Air with Oil and Watercolor

Medium: Oil and Watercolor

Instructor: Caleb Stone

Paint the beauty of spring in Concord while painting outdoors with master plein air painter, Caleb Stone. Colorful specimen trees, Walden Pond and the surrounding woodlands, sweeping marshes, peaceful riverside scenes, Concord and the charming downtown area offer many wonderful locations to paint. Caleb will guide you on how to choose your own spring palette and how to develop a composition that has good values and strong design with contrast and color harmony. Each class will begin with a demonstration, leaving plenty of time for painting and individual instruction. A constructive group critique will be offered at the end of the class. Students will meet at Concord Art and travel from there.

Emily Passman - Painting LARGE!

Painting LARGE!

Medium: Oil and Acrylics

Instructor: Emily Passman

Break through the fears and work large! Let go of the worry of “how will I fill the space, it’s too big?” and begin to see the possibilities of painting on larger surfaces. Emily will lead you with exercises to break into a new and exciting size with your work. This class will cover the division of space, value control and color power. Be willing to squeeze out more paint than you are generally comfortable with.

Ron Krouk - Draw and Quick Paint (Figure in Space & Still Life)

Draw and Quick Paint (Figure in Space & Still Life)

Medium: Charcoal, Oil and Acrylics

Instructor: Ron Krouk

Divided into sections of drawing and painting, this class will approach the figure no differently than approaching a still life. The drawing time is focused on the practice of three skills which directly impact painting and reward continued practice: gesture, contour and straight lines. Through these, we will understand why people say that “drawing is about seeing,” as we explore composition, proportion, shape, value, space and mark-making as they apply to painting in oil or acrylic. Paintings will be done faster than you may be used to in order to focus on underlying structure, color and value relationships rather than on detail and “effects.” This class benefits from including people at all levels of experience. Each class is followed up with a summary of the lessons learned and images of the work done. There will be an additional model fee paid directly to the instructor.

Hannah Bureau - Abstracting the Landscape

Abstracting the Landscape

Medium: Oil

Instructor: Hannah Bureau

With oil paint, we will be working towards abstracting the landscape and developing new techniques of applying paint. We will learn to combine several reference images with imagination and memory to achieve new ways of abstracting what we see–pushing our paintings beyond what is directly observed. The class will cover exercises designed to help identify value, color and shape in new ways, while applying them to the landscape. We will be using images as well as working from direct observation if weather permits. Demos, one-on-one critiques, instruction and handouts will help you leave with new approaches to abstracting the landscape and with work that moves beyond a literal interpretation of the landscape.

Daphne Confar - Portrait Painting from Photographs

Portrait Painting from Photographs


Paint your loved ones from photographic references! In this fun class, Daphne will teach you how to get started and figure out creative ways to capture a personality.  

Explore a new technique to add to your creative arsenal! Starting with a sketch we’ll to determine the ‘feel’ of the painting, decide what to include or exclude, and learn how to think about the composition without relying only on the photograph. You can even consider adding in an element of collage if you’d like.  

All painting will begin as a tonal underpainting in acrylic to establish values and create a monochromatic version of the finished piece. 

Daphne will then teach you how to work with glazing in oil over the underpainting. This class is fun and creative! There will be individual attention and direction throughout the workshop.
