Feather Your Nest with Suzanne Siegel

Feather Your Nest

MEDIUM: MIXED MEDIA COLLAGE

Suzanne Siegel


As we consider meanings of home as nest and nest as home, participants will save, find, collect, make collage materials for this workshop. On the first day we will paint some new collage papers with exciting and innovative ideas, decide what can work best from materials that we bring from our stash (the workshop materials list will give you ideas for this). We will plan some color harmonies for making collages on the second and third day, and look at a few contemporary collage artists for inspiration. I will also bring some of my own collage work to show. Collages can be as representational or abstract as you wish, and I will help guide you in your decisions through individual and group discussions each day. Sure to be a fun and thought provoking workshop, open to all levels.

Carborundum Collagraph with Joyce Silverstone

Carborundum Collagraph

MEDIUM: PRINTMAKING

Joyce Silverstone

During this workshop, students will explore making monotype transfer drawings and carborundum collagraph plates.  Transfer drawing is a great way to loosen up and refresh your appreciation for the marks and shapes of the natural world.  We will employ these “sketches” to provide the imagery for making our collagraphs.

The term collagraph stems from the Greek, “colla” being derived from the verb “to glue”.  The collagraph is composed of layers of materials that are glued or attached to a substrate.  We will explore one way of making a collagraph, by gluing carborundum grit to plastic plates.  Students will learn how to make the plates on the first day of the workshop, and we will ink and print them on day two.  There will be time to practice intaglio wiping methods using Akua Inks, and to experiment with layering plates together on the third day of the workshop.

The Air In-Between: Seeing and Simplifying in a Charged Landscape with Rick Fox

The Air In-Between: Seeing and Simplifying in a Charged Landscape

MEDIUM: PAINTING

Rick Fox

Each of the three days will be a combination of in-studio problem solving and plein-air landscape painting.  The studio work will involve specific directed limitations in anticipation of some of the core challenges, contradictions and joys of painting in the open, energized landscape.  We will make two paintings each day, one studio painting and one plein-air landscape painting.

Rick Fox has exhibited extensively and is currently represented by Gallery NAGA, Boston.  As a 2019 Ballinglen Artist Foundation Painting Fellow, he will be painting in Ballycastle, Ireland in November and December of 2019. Rick has been teaching painting and drawing full-time at the University of New Hampshire since 2010.

Drypoint and Criblé with Betsey Garand

Drypoint & Criblé: Scribing & Hammering a Hand-Pulled Print

MEDIUM: PRINTMAKING

Betsey Garand

This course will explore the 15th century non-acid techniques of drypoint and criblé, creating a remarkably broad range of possibilities for a printed image.  Drypoint is a direct method of creating a print by incising into the metal plate with a scribe; it is the perfect segue from drawing.  Criblé is a little known technique of hammering indentations into a metal plate with a variety of shaped punches and tools.  Students will be taught how to use these techniques and professionally wipe, register and print their plates.  Other intaglio techniques of monoprint and à la poupée will be demonstrated to uniquely alter their prints with value and a range color.  Students will be encouraged to explore imagery of interest to create dynamic prints ranging from the bold to delicate, producing a body of work to be proud of. Open to all levels.

Biography:

Betsey Garand, an artist printmaker, is included in numerous public collections including the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, Grunwald Center for the Graphic Arts Hammer Museum, Boston Public Library and the Sado Woodcut Print Village Museum, Japan.  She received an MFA in printmaking from Tyler School of Art is presently Senior Resident Artist, head of printmaking at Amherst College.

The White Line Woodcut and Beyond with Kate Hanlon

The White Line Woodcut and Beyond

MEDIUM: PRINTMAKING

Kate Hanlon

The white line woodcut, also known as the Provincetown Print, is a uniquely American form of printmaking, invented by artists working in Provincetown in the early 1900s.  In this method, beautiful multicolor prints are printed by hand using a single block, eliminating the need for a press or complicated registration methods.  Students will have opportunity to learn traditional techniques of design, carving, and printing, as well as expand upon the tradition with creative inking and printing options to create contemporary interpretations of the medium.  Explore by adding a line block, carving with a Dremel tool or other nontraditional mark-making tools, or jig sawing your blocks into creative shapes, all in the spirit of experimentation.  Participants will leave with newfound skills and appreciation of the process.

(This workshop will include a materials fee paid directly to the instructor.)

Ken Kewley's Alteration Shop: Mending and Alterations with Ken Kewley

Ken Kewley’s Alteration Shop: Mending and Alterations

ALL LEVELS

MEDIUM: PAINTED PAPER, COLLAGE

Ken Kewley

Ken Kewley is forever evolving tools and methods to strengthen what students do in their own studios.  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 these.  Everything will be 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.

The BIGGER Picture with Lisa Daria Kennedy

The BIGGER Picture

MEDIUM: ACRYLIC AND OIL

Lisa Daria Kennedy

Let’s paint the bigger picture.  This two-day intensive workshop combines demos, in-class

assignments and individual instruction to teach students the techniques to create fresh, deliberate marks on a big canvas.

Using observational painting as our launching point, we’ll embark each day with energetic

painting exercises designed to tap into each participant’s personal voice.  The practice of working directly from life results in a heightened awareness and a lasting impression of the moment.

Combining still life and interior painting creates an interconnectivity with our immediate surroundings.  We’ll paint freer and bolder and let our personalities inspire what we see in our

immediate surroundings.  Through painting and observational exercises, we’ll analyze what influences our choices and how to incorporate our personal voice in our work.  Using acrylic paints, students discover approaches to fill a big canvas.
