Descriptions

Introduction to Japanese Woodblock Printing

Introduction to Japanese Woodblock Printing

All Levels

Matt Brown

This exciting workshop offers an introduction to the range of wonderful Japanese tools, techniques and materials involved in the printing process. The Japanese hanga woodblock printmaking tradition uses water without a press. Everyone completes a multi-color print and engages with aspects of design, carving and printing. The instructor shares tricks and techniques that can also be adapted to other art-making approaches. The materials are pigments, wooden blocks and paper. The challenge is the line, shape and color. Students visualize an image, analyze it into parts, put hand to tool and get very original results. Class size is limited to eight!

Master Workshop: Exploring Still-Life through the Alla-prima Approach

Master Workshop: Exploring Still-Life through the Alla-prima Approach

Level: Intermediate & advanced
Stanley Bielen

Still life painting is an exceptional way for students and advanced painters alike to explore the fundamentals of paint and painting, especially for those who enjoy the meditative quiet of the studio. The focus of this workshop will be direct observation and response to nature in the studio. Appreciation of and sensitivity to materials: oil paint, grounds, and paint handling will be stressed. The alla-prima approach will be encouraged as a way to strengthen tonal and chromatic development.

Note: This workshop will open with a 120 minute public at Concord Art on the evening of Friday, April 28, at 5:00 pm.

Working in Series: Perception - Abstraction

Working in Series: Perception - Abstraction

All Levels
Kim Alemian

As artists our sense of the world is informed by the art we make. In this class, intermediate and advanced students will work from observation to simplify and then extract the essential form. Students will choose their own subject matter and bring artwork or reproductions that reflect ideas of personal interest. Working quickly and in series, each individual’s perception will become apparent. We will start with drawing and move into open media. This may include painting, collage, pastel, watercolor, acrylic – according to individual choice. Discussion of how other artists developed their own language will be addressed.

Small Format Landscape Painting

Small Format Landscape Painting

All Levels

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, meadows and countryside within the historic town of Concord. 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 push to hone observational and design skills to seek visual unity when composing a preliminary sketch. Working small, participants will create quickly, recording shape, line and color, allowing nature to dictate a response. Students of all skill levels welcome, using oil, watercolor, acrylic or gouache.

All Levels

Charles Shurcliff

Get to the heart of the matter and learn to paint the essence of the landscape. Learn how to approach each painting using color theory with simplified shapes. Train your eye to see areas of light and dark, by experimenting with color and value. You will create a painting reflecting the light and magic of the scene in front of you. Charlie will teach you to de-emphasize small detail and emphasize the broader picture in front of you. Simplicity is the key.

Observing Abstraction / Inventing Subject

Observing Abstraction; Inventing Subject

All Levels

Ken Kewley

This workshop is an exploration of pure abstraction and the abstraction in representation through collage. We will draw, paint and construct by means of collage. The statements, ‘You cannot make it up’ and ‘You must make it up’ are both true. We must let both guide us. What we put down on our paper are real things that we can adjust, just as we pose the model, move through the landscape, or set up a still life. It is this abstraction that we must adjust if we are working purely abstractly or if we are working from life. On day one, the class will attempt to make a thousand abstract collages. On day two and three, our abstractions will be reconfigured into still lifes, landscapes and figures without losing the abstraction, all on a path away from copying and rendering towards composing a more exciting and ultimately more real picture of what we find beautiful in the world.
