Descriptions

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.

NEW DATES: Encaustics Workshop with Tracy Spadafora

ENCAUSTIC WORKSHOP

MEDIUM: ENCAUSTICS

Tracy 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: 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.

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.
