Painting from the Photograph

All Levels

Emily Passman

Come with a collection of photographs that inspire you to paint. Learn how to paint from a photo as reference and  inspiration rather than depicting an exact copy. We will explore what areas to include or leave out, how to move objects around, and how to simplify an otherwise complicated scene. Oil or acrylic.

Class size is limited to ten.

Printmaking without a Press

Printmaking without a Press

All Levels

Catherine Karp

Printmaking is a unique artistic process. Being able to make multiples or a series of prints offers students the chance to play with variables like color, paper, adding and subtracting elements, and overlapping. Students will have an opportunity to explore relief printing with linoleum and foam, printing on fabric, sun prints, and making a collaborative piece. The process of printmaking lends itself naturally to working with positive and negative space. Along those lines, we will work with themes like construction/deconstruction, nature/machine and metamorphosis. A $20 materials fee will be paid directly to the instructor.

Dynamic Color for Watercolorists

Dynamic Color for Watercolorists

All Levels

Marjorie Glick

New explorations with color and layering allow you to see and use watercolor in fresh and new ways. Express your ideas using watercolor’s elusive qualities of spontaneity, transparency, and jewel like colors. Stretch your perception of how you see, think about, and interpret color. Students work on subject(s) of their choosing and re-imagine it through the study of color juxtapositions, layering, light, and shadow. Expand what you know through individual mentoring tailored to your specific needs.

Capturing the Light in Plein Air with Oil and Watercolor Painting

All Levels

Caleb Stone

Paint the beauty of early 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, Sleepy Hollow 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 with 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.
