ANNUAL CATALOG


Sedona Arts Center Staff Mei Wei Wong Executive Director Vince Fazio Director, School of the Arts

Inspiration and Technique... Welcome to the 2010 - 2011 Annual Catalog!

Cheryl Sinn Business Manager

Our educational programming is based on ideals of both artistic quality and diversity. Our faculty is made up of working artists who are exemplars in their fields, and love to share both their technical knowledge as well as their own inspirational sources. Technique can be taught - it can be broken down into steps and materials and processes. Inspiration is both a starting point for artists and something that magically happens in the midst of technique. Time seems to stop and you are truly immersed in what you are doing. This moment of going beyond technique is often referred to as 'getting into the zone'. The ultimate purpose of technique may be just that - to get us beyond it.

Shirley Eichten Albrecht Gallery Director

Knowing that makes technique all the more important.

Cyndi Thau Sharon Manzke Diane Schwilling Assistant Gallery Directors

If technique is a path into the 'zone', excellent instruction clears the way for our whole being to engage in bringing our imaginations to life!

Debbie Winslow Education Operations Director Nancy N. Wilson Development Director

Rod Gregory Facilities Manager Janet Collins Special Exhibitions Coordinator

We invite you to come and experience your own artistic breakthrough in the wonderful setting of Sedona, a veritable Shangri-La in the midst of the high desert landscape of Northern Arizona. You are encouraged to allow some time on either side of your artistic immersion to enjoy this truly beautiful and inspiring environment. Vince Fazio

Stretching ninety miles along the rugged central coast region of California, Big Sur presents endless photo opportunities from tide pools and jagged rocks to the Santa Lucia Mountain Range. We will be spending most of our time between Big Sur and Carmel visiting sights like McWay Falls, Bixby Bridge, The Old Coast Rd., Pfieffer Beach, Garrapata St. Park, Point Lobos and more. This workshop is for all levels of photographers and there will be plenty of individual time with Ian to discuss technically and artistically how to take your photography to the next level. Some of the items that will be discussed are balancing exposures between land, ocean and sky along with learning depth of field and how to design a composition. Other topics of discussion will be the use of neutral density filters and bracketing exposures to use with HDR software. For this trip we will be car-pooling to locations and it will be necessary for you to arrange your own lodging.

Ground transportation is included to and from Certaldo once each day and is provided at arrival and departure between the villa and the Certaldo train station.

Come join us in the hills of beautiful Tuscany at the ceramic school ‘La Meridiana’. Students will explore the fabrication of their own handbuilt or wheel-thrown ceramic forms using a porcelain clay body while learning to create a surface receptive to unique Crystal Glazes. Crystalline glazes have a magical quality. The slightest movement causes light to dance across the surface of the crystals, revealing layered depths of color and texture in a constantly changing rhythm. The challenge and fascination of this glazing technique is to recreate the process of crystalization that in nature can take thousands of years. Our instructor will also invite us to create unique ceramic jewelry applying this special glaze technique. Students will share housing in the beautiful setting of a traditional Italian villa ‘Il Testimonio’ enjoying access to the nearby towns of Florence, San Gimignano, Sienna, Pisa, and Certaldo.

Plein Air Painting in Tuscany

Figurative Raku - Paperclay Sculpture

Jill Carver and Kathryn Stats Sept 10 - 17 2011

Lorri Acott-Fowler Sept 10 - 17 2011

Join renowned artists Kathryn Stats and Jill Carver for an exciting painting workshop in Tuscany. Between Sienna, Florence and San Gimignano, in the heart of the Tuscan countryside, sits the beautiful Villa Fattoria Bacio - a perfect blend of old world rustica and catered comfort, surrounded on all sides by spectacular views of the meandering hills of Tuscany. Lodging at the villa, continental breakfast and genuine Tuscan dinners with the Villas own wine are included. Kathryn and Jill will work together alternating demonstrations and providing a lot of individual instruction to each student. Instruction will focus on compostion, editing the landscape and the relationship between value pattern and color. This oil painting workshop is for those who have had previous study focused on plein air painting in oils with professional instruction and are ready to take their work to the next level. This workshop is not designed for the beginning painter or for the novice plein air painter. The villa's grounds abounds with subject matter both intimate and panoramic. Join us for an unforgettable painting experience in the hills of Tuscany.

Lorri Acott-Fowler will present participants with a new way of working with clay, and teach students to use the work of other great artists to inform and inspire their own work. Using paperclay (regular ceramic clay with paper fibers added to it), Lorri teaches skills and techniques that encourage fragile and elongated forms that are often regarded as impossible to make and fire. After initial instruction on the methods of creating paperclay sculpture we will venture into Florence to be inspired by the Italian masters. The class will culminate in an actual raku firing of our work so that you will leave class with your finished sculpture. Fun, hands-on and experimental, Lorri will teach you the concepts and techniques and then allow you to "go for it”, opening your mind to a new way of creating.

Drawing from her heritage, her frequent visits to a beloved Italy and a long career pushing the boundaries of creative watercolor, Jeanne has developed a course which brings together the techniques for capturing Tuscan light in watercolor with the thematic power of one’s personal expression of that light. Tuscan light will be married to the light within as painters at every level, move in a new way through the craft of picture making in landscape, still life, and figure. Jeanne will demonstrate a different aspect of the craft each day, as well as provide ample amounts of individual attention.

The Perceptual Moment Master Class Landscape Intensive Stuart Shils Oct 27, 28, 29 2010 TUITION: $850 Actual cost: $1020 This workshop will concentrate on deepening and cultivating our visual sensitivity by looking critically at nature and painting with the loaded brush - aspiring to broad yet particular summations of form, naturalistic color and clarified visual mood. Emphasis will be placed on the perceptual processes in front of nature, the editorial response that follows in the head of the painter, the way that perception translates into paint and on shaking

up and/or questioning what is meant by “finish”. “Rather than bringing home conventionally finished trophies, I’ll encourage visual excitement, expansion of perceptual understanding and fun. Fun is why we really paint after all!” Each day Stuart Shils will discuss and demonstrate: 1) how to eliminate irrelevant distractions and think clearly about our approach to the visual encounter outdoors. 2) how to think conceptually, perceptually and tech-

By establishing a more personal approach to using shape, value and color, the student can learn to create a dynamic, sensitive and uniquely personal statement about the subject. Drawing and painting from nature, working on customized support surfaces, and creating compositions in the studio from value field studies are at the heart of the class. “My goal with each student is to encourage exploration and

self-discovery, motivate artistic growth, have fun… and act as the safety net!” www.susanogilvie.com

Plein Air to Studio Intermediate /Advanced Michael Workman April 18 - 22 2011 TUITION: $850 Actual cost: $1020 For Michael Workman, the act of painting usually starts with an emotional response to the landscape and is ultimatily completed by the viewer through their emotional response to the painting. A delicate balance is achieved in his paintings between realism and abstraction. The landscape can be dramatic, moody and subtle. Michael Workman's art is blended in a play between opposites on a variety of levels: classicism and romanticism, thin and thick paint, warm and cool colors, careful planning and spontaneity. "That flirtation between yin and yang is by design, because in Workman's view, mastering those opposites is a source of unparalleled magic." (SouthWest Art, September 1996).

This workshop will emulate Michael’s working process by starting in the beautiful Sedona landscape for two days of plein air research and then developing work in the studio for the remainder of the week. Michael will demonstrate and lecture for all the students with one-on-one time for discussion and critique designed to help each student achieve their own personal vision. www.michaelworkman.com

PLEIN AIR PAINTING Jennifer McChristian Plein Air Painting in Oils May 16 - 20 2011 TUITION: $600 Actual cost: $720 Join this award-winning California artist to learn how to interpret nature in terms of paint, using light and color to create form. The aim of this workshop is to teach you to think, see, and express light and form. Color relationships, design/composition, simplifying, and the benefits of painting outdoors will be discussed, as well as how to design and build a painting that carries an intentional impact. We will focus on values, shapes, edges and color as they relate to painting, working wet into wet to complete a painting in one session. The workshop is for all levels of painters who want to learn the time-honored joy of plein air painting. The workshop will offer a brief demonstration each day and advice on a one-on-one basis in the field. Exercises include creating small 6 x 8’ color sketches, where students will paint color block-ins and value studies prior to working with their larger canvases. In case of inclement weather, students must bring with them several reference photographs of landscapes. www.jennifermcchristian.com

Beyond Plein Air Arturo Chavez Oct 27, 28, 29 2011 TUITION: $600 Actual cost: $720 The opening presentation covers numerous topics related to the mechanics of painting and the history and background of outdoor painting. This will include compositional analysis, drawing in charcoal and pencil to determine a value plan and utilization of the color field sketch to mix match and color. There will be a demonstration which will cover how to find a suitable location and how to set up and begin painting a color field sketch. Topics include: simplifying the process of painting of location by determining a composition, judging values, mixing paint, and photographing the subject matter for later use back in the studio.

14

Zen Calligraphy Alok Hsu Kwang-Han Nov 6 & 7 2010 TUITION: $375 includes set of materials for each student Actual cost: $450 This workshop is for artists and nonartists, anyone drawn to the adventure of being intimate with the unknown. A great intelligence, good humor and creativity all exist outside the boundaries of what we know, and when we open ourselves they come to find us. Being playful with notknowing and putting aside all ideas on how to paint, you might be asked to paint the “energy” of music, a Rumi poem, a partner acting like a wild animal, the sound of silence, the Lord of Chaos, your heart’s desire…while your brush dances

from emptiness, you watch, amazed, exuberant and grateful. During the workshop you will learn to hold your new brushes as friends and move with them in harmony. Through simple and effective energy and meditation exercises you will more and more return to the natural state of “resting in presence and moving from emptiness”. Throughout the two days, we will share our paintings in gentle and humorous ways, becoming more relaxed and available to existence. Alok Hsu Kwang-Han is a highly original and internationally acclaimed Zen calligraphic painter from China. He has exhibited at the Seattle Asian Art Museum, the Great Hall of Exhibition in Shanghai and other venues. Visit Alok’s website for more information. www.zencalligraphy.com

Surface and Space Steven Goodman Sept 26 - 30, 2011 TUITION: $575 Actual cost: $690 This exciting workshop, designed for novice to intermediate artists, will begin with the basics of representational painting and lead the participant to more advanced techniques. The emphasis will be on studio work, painting still life from direct observation and using photographs as reference material for landscapes. Starting with an introduction to the fundamentals of representational painting -

gling for years in galleries and at art fairs. We will spend time on the basic principals of design – the rules of composition, value, color and shape – and how to apply them to small still life set-ups. We will then experiment with color relationships using an alternative to the traditional color wheel, explore color mixing, and how each color “leans” towards others. We will push our compositions to avoid “floating” objects and learn the one simple rule to avoid a boring still-life. Throughout, there will be demos with handouts and one-onone critiques. Finally we will learn how to set up a daily painting blog, the ins and outs of eBay, marketing your work, etc. There will be reference material on this to take home. www.carolmarine.blogspot.com

strong drawing skills, composition, color, value, and edges - we’ll then advance to working in a loose, painterly style, paying special attention to expressive brushwork while maintaining descriptive detail. We’ll also explore the interplay between the surface of a painting and the representational space depicted. The end result will be a deeper understanding of your own visual language within the context of representational painting. This workshop will consist of demos, short exercises, gentle group critiques, and plenty of free time to paint with personal attention from the instructor. Participants should bring photos to use as source material as well as a digital camera to capture Sedona’s stunning setting.

Watercolor Inside and Out Charles Reid Nov 12 - 16 2012 TUITION: $775 Actual cost: $930 Learning to simplify and avoid overworking are the goals of the class. I use the same approach for figures, still life, and landscapes. First we'll use contour drawing, helping students to concentrate on interconnecting shapes rather than on individual isolated objects. Next, we'll practice "Direct Painting", using as few over washes as possible. We'll concentrate on good paint consistency (the correct ration of water and paint when the brush is loaded.) Our hope will be to achieve the correct color, edge variety and tonal value with our first try. It's strongly advised that each student will have reviewed my most recent books, "Charles Reid's Watercolor Secrets" and "Charles Reid's Watercolor Solutions." www.charlesreid.com 22

TRAVEL & LODGING From Phoenix Airport:

Driving from Flagstaff:

The closest major airport is Phoenix Sky Harbor. Begin your creative adventure with a 2-hour drive through the spectacular Sonoran Desert - a peaceful space of endless horizons, ancient saguaros, carpets of blooming wildflowers and beautiful mountain vistas. Car rentals are available at the airport, but if you would rather relax and enjoy the scenery, shuttles are available to deliver you right to your hotel door in Sedona.

You can drive down beautiful Oak Creek Canyon on State Route 89A following the creek through a lush forest of pine, sycamore and oak trees, or take I-17 south following the crest of the Mogollon Rim down to the Hwy 179 Sedona exit. Either way the views are stunning. Be aware that Flagstaff sits at a 7,200 foot elevation with freezing temperatures and snowfall in the winter.

Lodging: Driving from Phoenix: If you are driving from the south: I-17 intersects I-10 in Phoenix. Drive north on I-17 to the Sedona exit, Hwy 179. Uptown Sedona is a 15 mile scenic drive from the exit, taking you through breathtaking red rock country made famous by western movies including Broken Arrow with James Stewart and John Wayne’s Angel and the Badman.

YEAR ROUND CLASSES The Art Experience Year round classes and Art Experiences offer Sedona residents and newcomers alike the chance to explore their creative, artistic instincts in the School of the Arts curriculum. Designed to reach out to all aspiring artists and students – all ages, all levels of learning - with instruction in a variety of mediums. Taking classes on our campus in Uptown Sedona affords residents and members not only the opportunity to explore the arts, but also to meet new neighbors and immerse yourself in the Sedona community. Classes have a membership discount and are offered on an ongoing or year-round basis.

The Art Experience program encourages everyone to become actively engaged in the arts – as an artist or one who simply enjoys art. Our newsletter e-blast and website invite members and non-members alike to participate in exciting art experiences that will be scheduled on an ongoing basis, updated monthly. The events and workshops will typically be half-day or full-day in length, often scheduled on weekends, making them available to everyone. And . . . very affordable. Experiences will be offered in three categories: • Art Appreciation Events - Develop a greater appreciation and deeper understanding of a variety of art forms, mediums, styles, and artists through art excursions, guest speakers, exhibits and more - see the Foundations and Founders of Modern Art below. • Introductory Art Workshops - Take your first step into the world of art - as the artist. Try your hand at a new medium or style. Enjoy one or two-day workshops to test the waters. • Artistic Development Opportunities - The path of the developing artist, from novice to emerging to professional, requires a skill-set not always easily obtained. Let us help you! Learn from those who have walked the path before you through presentations by guest speakers, workshops, open studios and other diverse experiences.

Foundations and Founders of Modern Art Presented by Heather Dies This eight-part lecture series will track the radical innovations and avant-garde experiments of the late 19th century that shaped modern art. Monet, Manet, Seurat and Van Gogh perpetually impacted the art world, and our in-depth analysis of these revolutionary figures will reveal the secrets behind their sensations. Please join us the second Thursday of each month at 10:00 am as we explore the Foundations and Founders of Modern Art. Each Session is $8 or you can register for the entire series of eight classes for $50 (AH1011)

The goal of this unique class is to create at least one painting that you and others will consider one of your best paintings ever, or maybe even a series. First we will examine basic principles found in great art and look at some masterful examples. Then we will explore how to invite inspiration, plan a great composition, work out your values, and mix harmonious colors. Then we’ll lay in an underpainting and develop the painting itself through intentional and intelligent brushwork. You will receive frequent individual feedback as well as group guidance throughout the process. Recommended for both professional and non-professional artists, with some knowledge of drawing, color mixing, composition and basic painting technique. www.susanpitcairn.com
