    Thursday afternoons
    April 11, 18, 25, May 2

    1:00pm-4:00pm.    $150

    Every artist yearns to give their paintings a degree of sophistication and polish that will push their work to the next level. That requires a few things - recognizing where you are at, deciding exactly what kind of paintings you wish to create, and finally, what steps and techniques, when consistently used, will get you there. That is a different path for everyone, but technical exercises along with personal coaching will help your focused direction take root. There will be homework to help you see your progress quickly. Join in to see where your work can go!

    Many painters say that their subject matter is "light" - the way it makes us see beauty in the simplest of subjects. But you can't have light without SHADOWS! Let's learn all we can to heighten the sense of light in a painting, by strengthening the colors, values and edges of the way we paint shadows. This class will have you looking at your photo references in a whole new light!

    9:00am - 12:00pm

    Contents of a backpack, objects on a bathroom counter, a partially eaten dessert are all fair game for a still life.  By examining the objects around us in our everyday life we shine a lens on American life in the 21stCentury.  This still life watercolor class will be devoted to the study of photorealism as a way to see the society in which we live.  We will take inspiration from artists who did the same type of exploration in the 19thand 20thcenturies. Wayne Thiebaud, Janet Fish, Ralph Goings, Paul Cezanne, Andrew Wyeth, among others.  In class, artists will perfect their skills to compose, light and shoot their still lives.  From images they shoot, artist will learn how to crop the images and transfer them to paper.

    INTRODUCTION TO SILVERPOINT - Laura Spector

    Thursday afternoons 
    May 9, 16, 23, 30.
    1:00 - 4:00 pm.  
     $150

    Silverpoint is one of the oldest drawing methods, dating back to the early Renaissance. Some of the first examples of silverpoint drawings come from the 14th century when it was commonly used in manuscripts. Artists such as Leonardo DaVinci, Raphael, Rembrandt and Cennini often employed this method of drawing with metal to create highly archival works, many have lasted over 500 years. This 4-day workshop will simplify the silverpoint process. Students will learn the basics of how to prime and tone paper, create various marks using silver tips and explore how contemporary artists are experimenting today with this re-discovered material. The workshop subject matter will be small objects observed from nature, patterning and how to include other water-based mediums to create a finished artwork.

    To see how the silverpoint shines in the light, click here for a video.

    Come spend a Saturday making art in ways you may not have tried yet. Learn to see relationships in order to draw more accurately, and practice creating non-objective dynamic relationships. We will review composition and create drawings both simple and complex. We will experiment with a variety of drawing implements and methods.

    Creating Dynamic Watercolors 

    Bringing Everyday to Life with Brienne Brown

    Sept 30-Oct 4, 2019

    Monday-Friday, 9am-4pm each day

    Painting in watercolor is very exciting and challenging. During this 5-day workshop, Brienne will demonstrate and explain her process in watercolor. While sharing her love for the medium, she will put particular emphasis on getting your values correct and connecting shapes in order to create strong and dynamic watercolor paintings. Brienne will walk students through steps for cropping photos, sketching a scene, creating monochromatic value studies with markers and color studies for creating strong compositions. Brienne emphasizes thinking in values rather than color. For the final day, Brienne will demonstrate methods for framing watercolors without glass.
