Creating Comics in a Digital Environment CEIL 150 00 September 10–October 29 6–9pm 8 sessions Cost: $325 Students will learn how to create a comic book from script to finish using a Wacom Cintiq touch screen tablet and Photoshop.

This course is being offered as a process sampler, allowing students an introductory experience to printmaking, and will also support those students who would like to build upon previous printmaking experiences. Anna Tararova

Tuesdays Creative Stone Setting CEJM 200 00 September 18–November 6 6–9pm 8 sessions Cost: $370 This class will help students understand how to apply traditional stone-setting techniques— peg, bezel, and prong setting—in nontraditional ways. Using non-standard gemstones, minerals, and/or found objects as both the “stones” to be set and design inspiration, students will create three objects or pieces of jewelry. Emphasis will be placed on the aesthetics afforded by each type of setting. Students will benefit from some metalworking experience when fabricating the settings, but the object/jewelry in which the “stones” will be set can be created from any material students are comfortable with. Sydney Givens Pleated Paper Sculptures CEFM 275 00 September 11–October 30 6–9pm 8 sessions Cost: $325 In recent decades, the age-old art of paper folding has taken on a number of new and interesting forms that deviate from its traditional, Japanese roots. Abstract and geometric based origami such as tessellations and corrugation folding yield stunning results, made all the more impressive considering they can be crafted simply from folding a single, un-cut sheet of material. The intricacy of such designs can range from simple to highly complex. This course will delve into the non-representational realm of folding, leaving students with experience in: basic tessellation folding; advanced pleating methods, and the creation of elegant spiral forms with paper. We will also examine different ways these techniques can be applied as design elements in other mediums such as installation art, architecture, photography, book making, and much more. This adult class also welcomes students in grades 10–12. James Peake

Group and individual critiques will provide additional input and guidance in conveying your ideas and making strong independent work. Developing the ability to work at an independent level will be our goal. Susan Danko

Watercolor landscapes will introduce the foundations of working with watercolor paints in the studio environment. Watercolor painting makes use of transparent washes and in doing so allows for a bright image. A painting made with watercolor paints uses the white paper as a mirror to reflect and capture a luminous quality. Topics discussed and demonstrated in class are color theory, paint application, painting techniques, and paint manipulation. Each example will incorporate a new color theory lesson and a painting technique. You will be shown how to paint elements found in the landscape such as skies, rural and cosmopolitan environments, trees, and water. Many small quick paintings and fast dry time permits for a wide range of tricks and topics to explore. Almost all paintings are guided with a step by step process from beginning to end. Both group and individual attention will aid in your painting’s focus and direction. The beginner and novice painter are encouraged.

Underground Comix CEIL 300 00 September 11–October 30 6–9pm 8 sessions Cost: $325 Underground Comix is an introductory course in the counterculture comix of the 1960s−80s and their continued evolution into the indie comics that exist today.

The course will feature an emphasis on page layouts, tactile pen and ink rendering techniques, digital coloring, self-publishing and printing, and will encourage students to embrace all things grotesque, ugly, and weird. This adult class also welcomes students in grades 10–12. Nathan Ward
