Descriptions

Marjorie Glick - Watercolor Intensive: Focus on Color and Layering

Watercolor Intensive: Focus on Color and Layering

All Levels

Medium: Watercolor

Instructor: Marjorie Glick

Color as it is used in watercolor and as a tool for expression will be the focus of this workshop. By seeing it, mixing it and layering it in innovative ways, students will learn when and how to use various watercolor pigments that are granular, transparent, staining and opaque. Students will choose one subject to focus on for the full three days and reimagine it in fresh, new ways using a variety of watercolor techniques. The subject could be a particular idea or any combination of figurative, abstract, floral, nature, landscape or narrative subjects. Students can approach this workshop in two ways: 1. Spend the three days working on one painting on a full or half sheet, creating accompanying research sketches to explore the mechanics and technical aspects of working on a larger format. 2. Alternatively, you may choose a theme and generate several smaller works that explore different variations and approaches.

Maris Platais - The Nearly Lost Art of Pen and Ink

The Nearly Lost Art of Pen and Ink Drawing

All Levels

Medium: Pen and Ink, Acrylics

Instructor: Maris Platais

National award winning artist, Maris Platais, will teach his unique pen and ink technique, in which he employs old fashioned steel crow quill points and India ink, with a light wash or mist of acrylic paint. The instructor will demonstrate techniques and work with students individually to assist in developing each participant’s unique vision and talent. The stream of consciousness approach to pen and ink drawing can be very liberating. Surprises emerge with each stroke of the pen, as they complement the subtle layers of color and texture which have been applied to the paper. A wonderful antidote to the overstimulation of the digital world.

MASTER WORKSHOP: Taking it Up a Notch - with Emily Eveleth

MASTER WORKSHOP: Taking it Up a Notch - with Emily Eveleth

All Levels

Medium: Oil

Instructor: Emily Eveleth

In this workshop let’s jump right in and take it up a notch. Working primarily from observation, we’ll take what’s in front of us and find new ways of making a powerful image. Using all the visual tools at our finger tips, composition, line, color, thick luscious paint, this will be a chance to discover what otherwise might remain unarticulated; nascent forms, seductive rich color, unexpected desires and the subtle mysteries of presentation. These three days are both a continuation and expansion of the April workshop at Concord Art and a great chance for others to join in and explore new ways of working. We’ll do a variety of exercises and make fast, unfinished works, where we explore the effects of lighting, placement, tonality and form. Through it all we discuss and consider historical and contemporary approaches to presentation from Manet to Michael Borremans, Caravaggio to Kerry James Marshall.

Daphne Confar - Portrait Painting from Photographs

Portrait Painting from Photographs

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.

Martha Wakefield - Power Painting and Dynamic Color

Power Painting and Dynamic Color

All Levels

Medium: Oil and Acrylics

Instructor: Martha Wakefield

In this multi-level workshop we will use the landscape as a point of departure and explore the possibilities of personal expression. Through close observation, an in-depth study of form and structure your skills will be enhanced, leading to unity and enlivened content. By traveling beyond “what is seen” we will instead realize the landscape’s poetry rendering it into an authentic and visual response. We will examine the design elements (i.e.: color, shape, line etc.) and continue to refine by investigating the design principles (i.e.: rhythm, unity, balance, repetition, harmony, dominance, variation, etc.). The study of master works, demos and emphasis on exercises will provide a crucial step in your artistic growth requiring you “to push outside your comfort zone”, whether that be a favorite color palette and tools, familiar surfaces, or habitual ways of working. A few hours will be spent outdoors sketching the landscape as material for studio paintings. One-on-one critiques/feedback will be ongoing and group critique will take place mid-week and on the final day.
