Descriptions

Amy Roberts - From Photos to Acrylic Painting

From Photos to Acrylic Painting

All Levels

Medium: Acrylics

Instructor: Amy Roberts

In this six-week class, Amy Roberts will teach students her technique of using a graph overlay tool to enlarge an image onto a canvas. Amy will spend a lot of personal time, helping students tackle the mixing of colors, planning the painting process and demonstrating brush techniques on palette paper or directly on the painting. The first meeting will get you all started and the following three will be dedicated to working on your own project. This is an excellent class designed to help students to develop the technical skill-set for the creation of realist paintings.

Nancy Gruskin - Observation, Abstraction & Invention: Still Life & Figure Painting

Observation, Abstraction & Invention: Still Life & Figure Painting

All Levels

Medium: Oil and Water-Based Media

Instructor: Nancy Gruskin

Learn approaches to still life and figure painting that emphasize the abstraction of form and the expressive possibilities of color and composition.  At times, we will work from direct observation of a visually rich still life or a clothed model.  These paintings will inform other paintings as we learn to combine direct observation with painting from memory, from previous work, and from external prompts.  Exercises will focus on loosening up, achieving fresh, unmuddied color and developing new approaches to composition.  The emphasis throughout the class will be on liberation from any so-called rules of painting.  (This class will include a model fee directly paid to the instructor.)

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

Long Draw and Paint (Figure in Space and Still Life)

All Levels

Medium: Charcoal, Oil, Acrylics

Instructor: Ron Krouk

This class explores the linkages between drawing and painting. The drawing time is focused on three skills which directly impact painting and reward continued practice: gesture, contour and straight lines. Through these we will explore composition, proportion, shape, value, space, and mark making as they apply to painting in oil or acrylic. Paintings will be of varying duration and the focus will always be on getting the big things right before getting seduced by detail and on right color and value rather than on “effects”. The class benefits from including people at all levels of experience and each class is followed up with a summary of the lessons learned and images of the work done. (This class will include a model fee directly paid to the instructor)

Erik Gehring - The Art of Photographing Trees

The Art of Photographing Trees

All Levels

Medium: Digital Photography

Instructor: Erik Gehring

Trees, because of their branching breadth and trunk height, can be challenging subjects to photograph. In this workshop, Erik will provide tips, tricks and photographic theory to help you create unique and dramatic images of trees. Using examples from his own teaching library, Erik will discuss what features you might want to emphasize, composition and framing, and what conditions might best complement your subject. The class will go into the field for hands-on practice and to evaluate options for photographing trees.

All Levels

Medium: Watercolor

Instructor: Marjorie Glick

Demystify the watercolor process by exploring concepts and strategies that will allow you to paint with clarity and spontaneity.

In addition, there will be a review of the basic techniques of wet into wet, washes and color mixing and an overview of the qualities of opaque and transparent watercolor pigments. Demonstrations and references to contemporary and traditional watercolor artists are included.

Martha Wakefiled - Alchemy of Color II

Alchemy of Color II

All Levels

Medium: All Mediums

Instructor: Martha Wakefield

“Color hides a power still unknown but real, which acts on every part of the human body” said Wassily Kandinsky. In this class, students will delve deeper into color exploration from 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 basic understanding of color properties and the color wheel. Martha Wakefield’s Expressive Color or Alchemy of Color Part I is not a prerequisite but preferable. Artists from all media are welcome in this class.

Daphne Confar - Portrait Painting from Photographs

Portrait Painting from Photographs

All Levels

Medium: Oil

Instructor: Daphne Confar

Paint your loved ones from photographic references! Daphne will teach you how to get started and figure out creative ways to capture personality. Starting with sketching a drawing to determine the “feel” of the painting, what to include or exclude, and to think about composition without relying only on the photograph, the class will move toward a tonal underpainting to establish values, push lights and darks, and create a monochromatic version of the finished piece. Daphne will then teach you her unique way of painting with a limited palette of oil color and how to work with glazing over the underpainting. There will be individual attention and direction throughout the workshop. (This class will include a model fee directly paid to the instructor)

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

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

All Levels

Medium: Charcoal, Oil, Acrylics

Instructor: Ron Krouk

Each class is roughly divided between drawing and painting. 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’ll 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 faster than you may be used to in order to focus on underlying structure and color and value relationships rather than on detail and “effects”.  The class benefits from including people at all levels of experience and each class is followed up with a summary of the “lessons” learned and images of the work done. (This class will include a model fee directly paid to the instructor)
