Figurative Abstraction in Acrylic COURSE CODE ARTS1168 SECTION 41 INSTRUCTOR Brian Smith DATES June 2 – 6, 2014 FEE $322.53 LOCATION OCAD U

Please note: This course is not suitable for beginners. With intermediate-to-advanced level instruction, this course will develop your ability to abstract from the human form, see shapes in the figure more clearly, develop more satisfying compositions that include the draped and undraped body, and develop a looser, freer approach to painting the figure.

Gallery Walks to Studio Works COURSE CODE ARTS1893 SECTION 41 INSTRUCTOR Kim Lee Kho DATES June 2 – 6, 2014 FEE $322.53 LOCATION OCAD U

Please note: This course is not suitable for beginners. Previous art-making experience would greatly enhance your learning experience. This course provides the opportunity to take in some of the most stimulating contemporary art Toronto has to offer, and then return to the studio to materialize your inspiration. Few of us get out to see the galleries as often as we’d like or feel we should. Perhaps you’re curious, but find the contemporary galleries intimidating or perplexing. Maybe you’re not sure where to go. Or you know where to go but would like to engage with the work at the deeper level that group discussion, some context and focused studio response can provide. With the classroom as home base, different exhibitions will be attended and discussed each day, and then you will work in the studio to process and integrate what you’ve seen. Open-ended prompts will give you both a way in to the issues addressed by the work you saw as well as enough creative latitude to explore your own personal responses. There’s a lot going on in the world of modern and contemporary art – are you curious? There will be a $10 material fee payable to the instructor.


The following courses will be held at the Ontario College of Art and Design (OCAD) University in Toronto.

COURSE CODE ARTS1875 SECTION 41 INSTRUCTOR Joanna Nash DATES June 2 – 6, 2014 FEE $322.53 LOCATION OCAD U

Please note: The course is not suitable for beginners. Instruction is suited to intermediate and advanced level students with life drawing experience. The location of this course in a bustling urban setting, invites comment on humanity/urbanity. You will be coached to look around your model, to the physical, psychological and architectural spaces encircling them. Part of each day will be spent sketching the model in street level contexts using small sketchbooks (digital camera optional). Afterward, in the studio, sketches are reworked into larger formats. The model is also available indoors during studio time, to take poses upon request. You can work in the media(s) of your choice, as you experiment with image making. The organization of forms in space is strongly emphasized, and studio discussion asks: is the design dynamic; is the content supported by material matter; and inevitably: is the work resolved?

COURSE CODE ARTS2045 SECTION 41 INSTRUCTORS Elizabeth Abbott, Wendy E. Bateman and

Non-toxic contemporary printmaking is often the method of choice for visual artists of all kinds who want to explore imagemaking in a related series of works. This approach uses waterwashable, soy-based inks with brushes and brayers, masked and collaged elements, line and colour added by hand, multiple glazes and variations in viscosity.

Being an artist isn’t just about creativity; it’s also about possessing the technical know-how to express it. As a photographer, that means understanding more than just what your basic camera settings do. Photography is an inherently technical medium – especially digital. Go beyond the simple considerations of depthof-field, low-light, or action shooting to gain an intimate familiarity with the technical capabilities and limitations of the medium, your equipment, and various modes of expression (so you may then proceed to forget about it and get on with taking great photos). Whether you shoot landscapes, people, abstracts, or kittens, learn how the technical choices you make will affect your art and help you to develop a critical eye, making you a better photographer. Instruction will consist of a combination of theory, practice, and evaluation on various principles and techniques. Post-processing of your photos is not included. Emphasis will be on better in-camera results. Principles taught in this course apply equally to shooting film but film cameras will not be suitable in class because instant feedback is required for evaluation. Instruction is suitable for intermediate-to-advanced photographers.

These curiosities frequently found homes in “wunderkammers” – literally “wonder cabinets” of wealthy collectors whose interests in such things varied from the purely scientific to the desire to amuse their dinner guests. These cabinets, which may be looked upon as the precursor to the modern museum were usually elaborately decorated pieces of furniture as befit the uniqueness of value or their contents. In this course you will make a box that you design according to your personal collection of curios, bits of memory and other treasure that your inner magpie has assembled from your life experience. Along the way you will be learning basic and advanced box making techniques using book board, cloth, leather, and paper.

As practices, yoga and writing offer opportunities and tools to explore inner experience. The crossover of opening the body, opening the mind, allowing energy to flow through the limbs, and through the hand, will be gently guided and supported.

With a variety of prompts as catalysts for writing sessions of different lengths, you will begin to move into a flow of images, narratives and recollections that can begin to tap reservoirs within the body and memory. The aim is not ‘good’ writing, but an engaged process and experience of flow, sensation, and the fresh, unfiltered expression of insight and experience.

Printmaking – Screen Monoprinting Plus COURSE CODE ARTS599 SECTION 41 INSTRUCTOR Linda Kristin Blix DATES July 28 – August 1, 2014 FEE $322.53

Screen monoprinting is an innovative and unique printmaking technique that satisfies both painters and printmakers. Brilliant fabric dye is painted onto a silk screen in a spontaneous and fluid manner. Once dry, a squeegee is used to pull clear medium over the screen.

This extremely versatile, fun and non-toxic technique forces you to paint in a fresh and free manner. Those who have stayed away from printmaking due to the technical aspect will be amazed at the multi-coloured and painterly prints created with such simplicity. Upon mastering the basic techniques you will be challenged to expand the possibilities using paper stencils, layering, and combining the monoprints with lino cuts and stamps of your creation. Experimentation is encouraged and you’re welcome to bring fabric or papers to collage, and other mark making mediums to combine with this versatile technique.

Holly Dean’s mixed media art comes to life through an alchemical process: layers of colour, texture and words. While contemporary in style, her mixed media paintings, book art, sculpture and altered images embody an age-old quality: an underlying connection to the mythology that shapes her life. Organic layers of collage and paint conceal and reveal fluid lines of calligraphy or shapely curves of gothic letter forms. Classical and fantasy literature, abbey ruins, ancient trees and decorated manuscript pages inspire her abstract art – described as “often medieval in mood”. Every day brings an opportunity for Holly to pursue her creative quest of melding past and present through her art. www.hollydean.com

Is it The Art of Life or The Life of Art?

Rich and Famous

with April Gates, Rod Prouse, Tammy Rea and Michele Karch Ackerman Join a potter, a painter, a digital artist and a conceptual installation artist as they bring their personal experiences and insights to a dialogue about art. Art in personal context and social arenas. Art in the past and future. Questions are welcome and will ultimately determine the event.

with Brian Smith

Want to be rich and famous as an artist? OK, maybe that’s a bit of a wishful dream. How about: “Want to sell a painting or two and have fun as an artist?” Maybe that’s a bit more realistic. Join Brian as he explores the lessons he has learned from his lifelong journey as an artist. Wednesday, July 30

Adventure Photography – Exploring the World through His Lens with Rob Stimpson

Join photographer Rob Stimpson for a light-hearted look at some of his travels while on assignment. From being kissed (almost) by a 400 lb fur seal on South Georgia Island; enduring a hurricane in the Drake Passage; to photographing “glamping” in the James Bay watershed – there are lots of stories about the trials and tribulations of his travels as a professional photographer.

Cultural Symbols in Arts & Architecture with Suzi Dwor

We’re surrounded by symbols. Yet their cultural and personal significance is largely unconsidered. It’s very likely that you tend to incorporate particular shapes, patterns and cultural influences in your artworks – possibly without realizing. Understanding the significance and meaning behind these inclusions will assist in creating direction in future works. Discover your personal connection to the cultural symbols in the arts and architecture. Wednesday, August 6

Have You FELT the Rise of the Most Ancient Textile Form? with Diane Gonthier

FELT as an art medium has showed a significant rise in contemporary art in recent years. This presentation intends to demystify the process by which wool becomes felt, but will also explore FELT as an art form from a historical, cultural, and artistic point of view.

First Nation Beadwork – Historical & Cultural Relevance with Andy Bullock

Enjoy images as well as samples of a variety of beaded works of art, both decorative and functional, and learn what those pieces can tell us. To the trained eye, a beaded piece can be an accurate indication of time and place, people and resources. A sociological map of sorts.


PLEASE WELCOME TO THE STAGE...

Join us in the Great Hall from 5:30 to 6:30 pm. Our entertainment is suitable for adults and children alike.

Cindy Thompson

Andy Rush and the Choral Singers

Cindy’s electrifying performances have earned her a reputation as one of Canada’s premiere combination fiddle player/stepdancers. A former national Canadian stepdance champion and winner of numerous fiddle awards, she performs in her own inimitable style, full of spontaneity, fun and musical excellence. There is something for everyone in her fiddling as she draws from Scottish, Irish, Cajun, French Canadian, Bluegrass and Old Time fiddle styles. Her two CD’s, Through the Gates and I Can Feel it in the Air, are still receiving great reviews and Cindy is still enjoying a career that has taken her to stages across North America for over 30 years.

Experience the power of the collective voice! A group of individuals, most meeting for the first time just 4 days prior to become part of this choral group, will raise their voices together in song. The result will be extraordinary. Andy Rush’s passion for performance and music motivates his musicians and energizes entire rooms. You’ll witness and hear, but most of all you’ll feel the remarkable phenomenon of the collective voice. Thursday, July 31

Rick Fines Rick Fines has been playing music professionally for 29 years now and is a veteran of the folk and blues circuits in North America. His song “Riley Wants His Life Back” won first place in the blues category of the International Songwriting Competition, with B.B. King as one of the judges! He won Maple Blues Awards for Acoustic Act of the Year (twice) and Songwriter of the Year. His work with Jackson Delta brought nominations from both the Juno and the Handy Awards. Rick has toured around the world sharing his understanding of blues, finger-style and bottleneck guitar. His 11th recording, Solar Powered, was recorded just south of Haliburton using solar power exclusively. www.rickfines.com Thursday, July 17

Eve Goldberg Eve Goldberg sings music that draws honey from the rock of life. A compelling writer and interpreter, Eve’s watercolour voice and solid guitar style has made her a favourite with audiences across Canada and the US. Her performances are intimate and relaxed, moving effortlessly from folk classics to original gems. Since 1990, she has performed her trademark mixture of folk, blues, country, bluegrass, old time, and jazz in venues across Canada and the U.S. ranging from small house concerts to the prestigious Kennedy Center in Washington DC. Along the way she’s earned the respect of legendary musicians like Peggy Seeger, Geoff Muldaur, and Penny Lang. www.evegoldberg.com

Katherine Wheatley According to the Toronto Star, Katherine Wheatley “turns pebbles of everyday life into dreamy mountains of song”. It’s an apt observation about this geologist-turned songwriter. As she travels between shows on North America’s highways, the landscape, as well as the characters she encounters on her travels, inspire her songs.  She has an uncanny ability to take minor observations in life and find their soul. With offhand wit, vibrant lyrics and an infectious passion for performing, Katherine has been captivating audiences everywhere she performs. Warren Footz from SEE Magazine in Edmonton wrote “As a listener, it’s hard not to sit back, close your eyes and watch the movie play. And man, can this serene redhead ever play guitar”.
