NEW DATES: On and Off the Press with Joyce Silverstone

On and Off the Press

MEDIUM: PRINTMAKING

Joyce Silverstone

Have you ever felt inspired by the work of Paul Klee?  Does the soft suggestion of ground and form combined with narrative or abstract line drawings speak to you?  Learn the techniques that he used, and bring them into your studio - no presses required.  Through demonstrations and practice throughout the day, become fluent in simple paper registration, multiple plates for color play, and transfer drawing.  The line quality that reminds us of Paul Klee’s drawings is achieved by touching ink from a plate to paper with various mark making tools.  We will experiment with ink viscosity and a variety of printing papers that enhance the particular character of line transfer.

THREE-DAY DRAWING MARATHON

MEDIUM: DRAWING

Gwen Strahle

A three-day Drawing Marathon means you will be drawing during class, out of class, hopefully around the clock!  We will be working from the model using series as a process to move forward.  A very wet drawing class, using lots of ink and gesso.  We’ll mix charcoal into the recipe.  It will be easy and important to make changes in this process.  We will be working observationally to see abstractly.  In the series, one drawing will inform the next; a body of work developing from the first drawings’ strengths and weaknesses.  Let’s see where this takes us. 

Gwen Strahle earned her BA from Rhode Island School of Design and her MFA from Yale University School of Art.  Among other achievements, she is the recipient of an Ingram Merrill Foundation Award (1990), a Guggenheim Fellowhsip (2000) and a Purchase Prize from the American Academy of Arts and Letters (2010).  Recent exhibitions include Small Works Invitational at the Painting Center in New York (2010), American Academy of Arts and Letters Award Ceremony Exhibition, New York (2010), Invitational Exhibition of Visual Arts, American Academy of Arts and Letters, New York (2010) and Matthew Noonan, Gwen Strahle-Still-life,  Stonehill College, Easton, MA. She has served as a Senior Critic at Rhode Island School of Design since 1984.

NEW DATES: Encaustics Workshop with Tracey Spadafora

ENCAUSTIC WORKSHOP

MEDIUM: ENCAUSTICS

Tracey Spadafora

  Encaustic paint is perhaps the most beautiful and durable paint that an artist can use.  Made from beeswax and resin that can be polished to an enamel-like finish, it offers a number of possibilities for exquisite surface qualities.  This is the legendary paint of the Fayum mummy portraits of the first and second centuries, yet its incredible versatility has made it a desirable painting medium in the 21st century.  This comprehensive workshop, which will cover safety, equipment & materials, supports & grounds, and many popular mixed media techniques, is a great introduction for beginning students, or continuation for intermediate students.   Learn and practice fusing, scraping, layering, incising, collage, transfer, mono-printing, and a range of other encaustic techniques.  Limited to 6 participants.

This workshop will include a separate materials fee of $40 paid directly to the instructor.

NEW DATES-Small Format Landscape Painting and Drawing with Kathleen Jacobs

SMALL FORMAT LANDSCAPE PAINTING & DRAWING

Outdoor and Indoor

ALL MEDIUMS

Kathleen Jacobs

Working outdoors, students will investigate, record and hone their observational skills.  You will work intuitively to explore and consider line, form and the distinctive colors that exist in this beautiful part of the world.  Students will take simple hikes to the riverbanks, ponds, meadows and countryside of historic Minuteman Park, Concord.  Small sketches will help students to understand a simplified sense of space and compositional structure -- without over analysis of detail.  There will be an emphasis on drawing form and structure to seek a certain compositional grace and order from nature.  Working small, participants will draw and paint quickly. All skill levels welcome.  Any medium welcome; including oil, watercolor, acrylic or gouache, charcoal, etc.

NEW DATES: Functional Japanese Inspired Embroidery: Sashiko and Boro with Kimberly Becker

Functional Japanese Inspired Embroidery: Sashiko and Boro

MEDIUM: TEXTILE

Kimberly Becker

Sashiko is a decorative, yet reinforcing, style of embroidery.  Running stitches are typically sewn with white thread on indigo blue fabric in a geometric pattern.  Boro is a technique of stitching layers on top of one another for mending worn or tattered cloth.  Traditional Japanese boro cloth carries stories. Each cloth has a lifetime of layers and history sewn into it to give it renewed strength and resilience.  Rather than tossing a worn garment or a torn bedlinen, the Japanese mended. Wabi sabi- translated- means to see beauty in imperfections.  Through slow stitching and mending, rather than replacing, we are, in a sense, practicing wabi-sabi.  Join me for a weekend of stitching and mending.  We will focus on Boro one day and Sashiko on the other. By the end of the weekend you will have at least one completed project. 

This workshop will include a materials fee of $25 payable directly to the instructor.

NEW DATES: Exploring Still Life Through the Alla Prima Approach with Stanley Bielen

Exploring Still Life Through the Alla Prima Approach

INTERMEDIATE LEVEL

MEDIUM: OILS

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.

Watercolor for Absolute Beginners with Marjorie Glick

This class is FULL

Please email Lisa with your phone number to be put on the wait list: lisapohl@concordart.org

Unlike most watercolor workshops, this one will start at the very beginning!

This workshop is geared toward the absolute beginner and will prepare you for future watercolor classes. We will begin wih learning the basic tecniques of color mixing, wash, wet into wet, edge shading and building an image using transparent layering. You will also develop an understading and appreciation of how water is used in watercolor. Water is everything: it is used to create paint movement, spontaneous expression as well as control, and transparency. Learn how to use value to build up an image spatially, and with light and shadow.

Note: If you are not a beginner, you are welcome to take this class as a refresher course but we will start at the begininning with basics.
