New Workshops in August 2018

I am very excited to announce our August workshop schedule! We have three new workshops with three new artist instructors.

Dive deep into the subject matter of water with artist and expert scuba diver Klara Hobza! The Drawing Water Workshop will explore the challenging task of drawing water in motion, using both traditional and experimental techniques. Klara is an internationally recognized artist and she will be sharing her technical tips and passion for water with the class. 

Expand and hybridize your understanding of what paper can be! Artist Loren Britton has focused their own artistic practice around paper-making, reinventing this traditional medium in both conceptual and sculptural forms. The Paper-making Workshop with Loren promises to be stimulating and fun, in both expected and unexpected ways.

And finally the workshop that many of you have been waiting for.. We are very excited to offer the Painting Workshop with internationally acclaimed painter Maureen Jeram. Maureen combines her training in Italian Renaissance painting with her studies under George Baselitz to give you an entirely fresh approach to traditional painting techniques.

It is a great honor to introduce you to Klara, Loren and Maureen. Check our TEAM page to learn more about these incredible artists and find links to their homepages.

Drawing Water Workshop

Paper-making Workshop

Get your hands wet in paper pulp while exploring the process of papermaking! This workshop takes a fresh look at the everyday material of paper, using an approach that is tactile, colorful and playful. Take your paper scraps and transform them into a new ‘drawing’, ‘painting’ or hybrid sculpture.
Pulling from histories of collective making we will explore the materiality of paper together. Learning from artist, Loren Britton, who uses this process in their own work, we will process, pulp, practice, and produce pulp works that embed bits of our own and collective history into a new object.

Painting Workshop

An introduction to the expressive and versatile medium of painting with a focus on traditional painting methods. Starting with basic color theory, learn how to mix colors and achieve a unified color world. Through exercises designed to show the difference between hue and value, or the relationship between complimentary colors, we sharpen our understanding of how colors interact and how to mix paint.  Learn step by step how to craft a painting by exploring techniques for paint application, brushstrokes and composition to create form and space.
