Painting a Series:   

Thursdays from:                                                                                                             

January 24 –March 21, 2019

6:30–9pm   (8 weeks)

(no class February 21st)

Painting a Series is an opportunity for each student to have guidance in the direction of choosing a subject/theme, a medium, and a format in which to begin creating a unified body of work.  I will help each person to focus and develop in order to find their own specific voice in making art in a supportive and participatory environment. 

 

Painting with Oil Sticks

Thursdays from:

February 14 – March 21, 2019

2:30–5pm   (5 weeks)

 (no class February 21st)                                                                                                                  

We will use oil sticks and/or pigment sticks to bridge the gap between drawing and painting.  Using any oil stick will result in immediate colorful paintings.  The softer the sticks you buy (such as R & F), the more painterly the result.  But any brand will work and this should be a time to experiment, play, and get totally involved in your work.

Also, bring a “medium” clear stick, color shapers, if you have them, smooth paper, such as bristol board, smooth print-making paper (140 lb. weight).

Creating a Series:   Finding Your Voices:      

Mondays  from:

February 4 – March 18, 2019

9:30am–1:30pm   (6 weeks)

Sooner or later, every artist is drawn to a subject, a concept, or a medium, to the point that it becomes a theme and a reflection of the artist’s creative voice. This course will help students discover what draws them to art making, whose work from art history excites them, what medium they plan to explore, and what goals they want most to accomplish. Each will produce a series of related works, focusing on an in-depth involvement and exploration that no single picture could supply. This course will include two special events: a visit from the curatorial department of WAM and a visit to see how the conservation team works or how one conservator works on a piece.

For intermediate and advanced students.

Three Mediums: Working with Resist Materials

Workshop:

Saturday, January 26th 

9:00 am – 4 pm  

In this workshop students of all levels learn how to use three unique mediums to produce unusual and unexpected results, which are great to use in the studio or outdoors. We combine water-based materials (watercolors) with oil-based Caran d’ache crayons and oil pastels to create mixed-media resists. The result is rich in line, form, color, and texture. The watercolor resists the linear crayon and oil pastels and fills in any spaces while also adding texture to the surface. The list of supplies suggested for this workshop can be found on the Workshop for Adults page under the column marked “class supplies” next to the workshop
