Descriptions

Jill Pottle - Color and Light

Color and Light

All Levels

Medium: Oil and Acrylics

Instructor: Jill Pottle

Capture the richness of color and light that you see in the landscape. In this workshop led by Jill Pottle, students will paint on a variety of colored surfaces to better understand and use contrasting colors. The underpainting technique will provide a sense of light that is relevant for creating the illusion of depth and atmosphere. Students will also study the work of artists that convey this concept, ranging from Richard Diebenkorn to Connie Hayes. Jill will explain color values, tones and relationships and how to apply these concepts to your work. This workshop will teach you how to create vibrant and colorful paintings.

Suzanne Siegel - Letting Go. The Joy of Collage!

Letting Go. The Joy of Collage!

All Levels

Medium: Collage

Instructor: Suzanne Siegel

Collage is all about the joyful, experimental, and freeing process of cutting, arranging, and pasting painted papers, yet it’s a meaningful enough process to have satisfied Picasso, Braque, Matisse, and many other well-known artists. We will explore aspects of what makes strong and beautiful art through shape, value, line, texture, color and most importantly, variety & contrast.

Let go of your inner critic, come and have fun in a relaxed environment while enriching your visual skills. There are no mistakes in collage, only adjustments and revisions. All levels are welcome.

Kathleen Jacobs - Understanding and Exploring Color from Painting Nature

Understanding and Exploring Color from Painting Nature

All Levels

Medium: Oil, Watercolor, Acrylics and Gouache

Instructor: Kathleen Jacobs

Understanding color and how colors interact with each other is essential for painters to express themselves.  Students will paint outdoors from the natural landscape in the mornings and return to the classroom in the afternoon to make slower intentional painted color studies. Students will explore the use of warm and cool tones to juxtapose and emphasize form and shape, how certain colors neutralize or alter other colors, how light effects hue and more. We will make color charts for future reference. This class will help your color mixing skills, no matter what your medium or level of experience. There will be a slide talk about how the masters such as Matisse, Rothko and Hockney used color in differing ways.

Hannah Bureau - Loosening Up Your Oil Landscape

Loosening Up Your Oil Landscape

All Levels

Medium: Oil

Instructor: Hannah Bureau

In this workshop we will learn to take risks using palette knife with a medium to make oil paint work for us. Happy accidents happen when we plan our values, mix beautiful grays, work with subtle tonal shifts of warm to cool, and combine abstraction with the literal landscape. This workshop will cover the mixing of oil paint and medium  to an optimal consistency for fluidity, drips, and spontaneity. Source imagery to work from will be provided and we will work on moderate to large sized canvas around 30x30”. Be prepared for a few charcoal drawing sessions that exercise our ability to develop specific forms out of general shapes and values. Demos, One-on-one critiques, instruction, and handouts will help you leave with bolder, looser work, that moves beyond a literal interpretation of landscape painting.

MASTER WORKSHOP: Ken Kewley’s Alteration Shop – Collaging and Alterati

MASTER WORKSHOP: Ken Kewley's Alteration Shop - Collaging and Alterations

All Levels

Medium: Oil, Acrylics and Collage

Instructor: Ken Kewley

Methods from Ken Kewley’s past workshops will now be applied to each participants' own work. After a day of abstraction, using elements from our work, we will work on reproductions of our work with painted paper collage to adjust the shapes. It is the underlying abstraction, before it is a thing, a place, a person, that must excite. It is what needs to be strengthened. To further understand our paintings we will recreate them as sculptures using corrugated cardboard and then work from those. Everything adjusted and readjusted via a scanner/copier. All in the belief that with a little alteration, what we might have discarded, can become our best work.

MASTER WORKSHOP: Charlie Hunter - Making Values Work For You: From Photograph to Painting

MASTER WORKSHOP: Charlie Hunter - Making Values Work For You: From Photograph to Pa

All Levels

Medium: Oil

Instructor: Charlie Hunter

“Color gets the credit, but value does the work!” It’s a phrase you have probably heard before, but what does it mean? During this intensive three-day workshop, dive into the world of values with master-of-the-limited-palette, Charlie Hunter.

Using photographic images as a starting point, this class will focus on how to make values work to build stronger paintings. Students will work with Hunter as he guides them through creating value drawings from personal photographs – an often-overlooked step that pays off in spades! Then, with these drawings as one’s stepping stone, we will create memorable and dynamic paintings during the workshop. By simplifying forms and emphasizing composition, your work can take on a power that will truly make it stand out.

Multiple demos by Hunter will show how he goes about creating his award-winning work. Students are sure to leave this class laughing, challenged, and armed with an arsenal of pointers and tools to strengthen their painting and create the best work of their life.

Aldria Arch - Experimental Acrylic Techniques

Experimental Acrylic Techniques

All Levels

Medium: Acrylics

Instructor: Adria Arch

Acrylic paint is infinitely versatile. This workshop is designed to help you learn how to take advantage of some of the exciting techniques that are made possible by innovations in viscosity and pigment strength.  Learn how to create "acrylic pours" - large areas of fluid paint mixed with medium that feature cells of color. (We do this without open flames or silicone!) We will also be creating "acrylic skins" that can be used for collaging onto canvas or board. Learn how to use commercial or your own hand made stencils to make interesting layers, lines and more on top of previously prepared skins. We'll pour paint onto Mylar and Yupo, as well as fine art papers to make fantastic shapes and images. (This class will include a materials fee directly paid to the instructor)
