Weekly Classes 2013 - 2014

Welcome Scottsdale Artists’ School Celebrates its 30th Year! Thirty years ago, a handful of dedicated artists and creative community leaders had a bold idea. They wanted to create an art oasis here in the Sonoran Desert. The goal was to build a creative magnet where professional and aspiring artists could come to study, share ideas and inspire one another. Over the years, that ambitious idea evolved from a one-studio classroom in 1983 into one of America’s foremost non-profit institutions. Tucked away in the heart of the Scottsdale Arts District, Scottsdale Artists’ School now resides in a charming whitewashed historic schoolhouse, which has six fully equipped studios, student lounge featuring an extensive book collection, student store and a beautiful rose garden. The School has been celebrated locally and nationally for its contributions to the art community; named the “Best Place for a Brush with Greatness,” by Phoenix Magazine, and proud recipient of the “Excellence in Fine Art Education Award” from the Portrait Society of America. The School’s art-filled hallways are the most useful reminders of the thousands of students that have trained here under the artistic guidance of so many highly acclaimed professionals, including such masters as Richard Schmid, Jim Reynolds, Everett Raymond Kinstler, Harley Brown, Glenna Goodacre, David A. Leffel, Sherrie McGraw and Bruno Lucchesi, to name just a few. Some of the biggest names in representational art today began their careers as students at Scottsdale Artists’ School – including celebrated artists Matt Smith, Kevin Macpherson and John Coleman.

September/October 2013

Tim Rees Fundamentals of Oil Painting: A Comprehensive Approach This four-week, fundamental class will provide students with everything they need to pursue the art of painting any subject in oil with confidence. Class will begin with a comprehensive introduction to materials and the role they play in producing quality work. Next, students will work from still life set-ups to become familiar with each step of oil painting, from mixing paint to applying each layer. Students will also be introduced to fundamental aspects of painting, including: composition, light, color and more. With plenty of discussion, demonstrations, exercises, and completing a painting, students can expect to get the most out of this fun and informative basic oil painting class! www.timreesfineart.com September 16 – October 7, 2013

Mondays, 6:30-9:30pm Oil/Beginning (All Levels Welcome) $200/4 sessions

Donna Colleran Head and Shoulders: A Portrait Class This class will begin with instruction on the proportions of the head from basic line to more advanced anatomical study. From there, we will focus on developing a likeness from the model by learning to interpret what we see; simplifying the features and focusing on basic shapes and forms as described by masses of color, plus light and shadow. Set-up to finish; demonstrations and individual attention will be emphasized. www.donnacolleran.com

September 17 – October 22, 2013 Tuesdays, 9am-Noon Oil/All Levels $300 + $35 model fee/6 sessions

Tim Rees Drawing: Fundamentals and Techniques Using the basic principles of drawing, students will learn how to master any subject matter. This class is open to beginning and intermediate students who want to learn how to effectively capture their subject in charcoal. Students will also learn the fundamentals of strong measuring techniques and how to apply them to create realistic rendering of light and form. Improving drawing skill leads to stronger artwork and more realistic paintings. The first class will cover materials in detail, an introduction to master copies, and plenty of demos. Each class will also begin with a series of quick sketches to warm up. www.timreesfineart.com

September 18 – October 9, 2013 Wednesdays, 6:30-9:30pm Charcoal/Beginning-Intermediate $200/4 sessions 800.333.5707 or 480.990.1422

September/October 2013

Nancy Chaboun Painting the Model Beautiful set-ups and good fun are promised as you work from the clothed model. Emphasis will be on creating a mood through composition. By posing the model in interesting environments, students will have the opportunity to explore the many facets of painting. The critical elements of a well designed painting will be discussed: placement, values, edges and brushwork. Students will be encouraged to incorporate mood and emotion into their paintings, allowing them to move beyond the “studio exercise phase” and into more exciting aspects of creating art. www.nancychabounfineart.com

September 23 – October 28, 2013 Mondays, 1-4pm Oil/Intermediate $300 + $35 model fee/6 sessions

Kim Johnson Nechtman Creating Expressive Animal Paintings in Watercolor Get loose, go outside the lines, and be unafraid of your watercolors! We’ll throw paint at the paper letting the fear evaporate, instead relaxing and opening up our imaginations. Learn about making shapes, using color combinations, simultaneously designing foreground and background, using soft and hard edges to your advantage, as well as reaching the point where you realize your painting is done. www.kj-art.com

September 23– October 14, 2013 Mondays, 9am-Noon Watercolor/All Levels (some experience necessary) $200/4 sessions

Bill Lundquist The Really Useful Painting Class Each artist’s brush stroke is as individual as his or her own signature. These signature techniques are developed through experimentation and individual preference. The qualities of good drawing, exciting value ranges, interesting composition, appropriate color and unifying edge development combine to make paintings successful. This class will help you to learn and appreciate those essential painting elements and stir the creative process. www.billlundquist.blogspot.com

September/October 2013

Jane Wingfield Absolute Beginning Oil Painting If you have always wanted to paint, this class is for you! We will still start with the color wheel; learn color mixing, color value and the effect of light on color. We will learn the right way to mix color, how to create distance, and the importance of a focal point. Most of all, we will have fun in a totally non-judgmental atmosphere. Students who have painted some in the past, but could benefit from a refresher course are very welcome in this class, in addition to the total novice. Jane will work with students at their individual levels.

September 26 – October 31, 2013 Thursdays, 1-4pm Oil/Absolute Beginner $300/ 6 sessions

Suzanne Falk A Realistic Look at Oil Painting The trick to painting things realistically is to not let the objects overwhelm you. In this class, we will learn how to start on the right path. First, by learning how to not be intimidated with oils, we will work our way up to understanding how different color mixtures and value changes create the illusion of surfaces like metals, fabric, flowers, glass, as well as going over skin tones, highlights and shadows. It is my goal to take the fear out of learning a new medium as well as help continuing students progress and take the next step in achieving interesting paintings that tell a story. I will go over how to prepare canvas, color mixing, understanding how different mediums can be used, and discuss some basic principles of design that make for stronger paintings. This will be a relaxed classroom setting, but students will be encouraged to step out of their September 26 – October 31, 2013 comfort zones in order to look at things in a fresh way. www.suzannefalk.com Thursdays, 6:30-9:30pm

Oil/All Levels: Beginners Welcome! $300/ 6 sessions

Michael Maczuga The Unspoken Rules of Color In the beginning we are all told to “paint what we see”. If we understand the rules of color, creating that illusion of what we see will become a little closer to reality. This is a hands-on class; brief demonstrations will be given to exercise the objective. Students will work from the live model as reference. www.michaelmaczuga.com

September 26 – October 31, 2013 Thursdays, 6:30-9:30pm Oil/Beginning-Intermediate $300 + $35 model fee/ 6 sessions 800.333.5707 or 480.990.1422

September/October/November 2013

James Coulter From Basics to Plein Air This class is applicable to all levels of painters, from beginning to advanced. We will be covering a lot of ground, starting with the basics: seeing color as value, controlling intensity, anatomy of light and shadow, use of thumbnail sketches, brush work and paint layering. We will also talk about how to design and orchestrate your main motif and all the visual elements to make a more powerful statement, as well as how to use “variety” in every aspect of the painting process (including emotion), to create a more interesting painting. The first few classes will be indoors, then we will move outside to paint from life, and come back to the studio to use our field studies and photo references to create a larger studio painting. This class is all about WORK, including September 28 – November 2, 2013 homework in between classes. Lessons will be taught in sequence, one step building up Saturdays, 9am-Noon to the next. The material is derived from over 10 years of teaching landscape painting. Oil/All Levels Portable equipment and transportation are required. www.jamesmcoulter.com

$300/6 sessions

Jerry Cox Sculpture 101

September 28- November 2, 2013 Saturdays, 9am-Noon Water-based Clay/All Levels: Absolute Beginners Welcome! $300/6 sessions

This class is specially designed for artists who have always wanted to sculpt but have been too afraid to try. While this class is geared towards the novice, it will also allow the more experienced sculptor to revisit the fundamentals and explore the joys of the creative process. We will use water-based clay so students can have their sculptures fired in a kiln, thus avoiding the expense of molds and bronze casting costs. The primary goal for this class is for students to have fun while learning about sculpture. The first session will meet at the instructor’s studio to discuss the creative process and determine goals and supply needs for the course.

Bill Lundquist The Really Useful Drawing Class All fine representational paintings have one thing in common; they are drawn well! This drawing class will give you the techniques and insights to help you draw better. You will learn how to see errors instantly and become more attuned to what your eyes are “saying” to you. If you need a better grasp on the key principles of shape, proportion, value, perspective and design, this class is for you. Your line work will become expressive and your drawings more exciting as the instructor leads you through exercises and demonstrations. This class will include two sessions working from the live model; portrait one session, and figure one session. www.billlundquist.blogspot.com

October/November 2013

Robert Lemler The Alla Prima Still Life Unlike most other subjects, the still life genre offers the artist complete control over every aspect of the final painting. The unlimited choices in color, key, arrangement and lighting one’s subject makes still life one of the most popular genres. Design begins with a concept, and ends in an arrangement of elements and lighting which is then translated into paint. Through demonstration, lecture and individual instruction, students will be offered guidance in composing, lighting and painting their subject. This class is suitable for all levels of experience, as students will compose their own arrangements in order to paint in an Alla Prima fashion (paintings which are done in a single session). www.robertlemler.com

October 3 – November 7, 2013 Thursdays, 9am-Noon Oil/All Levels: Beginners Welcome! $300/6 sessions

Lewis B. Lehrman Sketching for Pleasure This class is geared toward the person who has always longed to sketch, but doesn’t know how to begin; for the sometime- artist who never seems to find the time, or anyone who’d like a relaxing pastime that may be enjoyed virtually anywhere: at home, in the park, waiting at the airport or auto repair shop... anyplace time passes slowly and boredom seems inevitable. Minimal investment in materials required: sketchbook, some pencils, an eraser, maybe even a pocket box of pan watercolors and a brush or two. Following the initial session in studio we will meet mostly off-site- indoor or outdoor sketching, with instruction, at various locations within a reasonable driving distance of the school. Weekly sessions will include: demonstrations, individual October 4 – November 15, 2013 instruction, critiques, tutorials on sketching figures, heads, color, perspective and other Fridays, 9am-Noon subjects of interest to the class. www.lewisblehrman.com Pencil/Watercolor/All Levels:

Beginner’s Welcome! $350/7 sessions

Amery Bohling Painting the Simple Still Life There is a fountain of information to be learned from painting a simple still life. Form, color, line, shadows vs. lights; all are important elements that many new students need to learn before attempting more complex subjects. For the more advanced student a simple subject matter can help you focus more on the basics of painting as well as refine paint application. Sometimes a complicated subject can hold you back on learning by occupying your mind with overwhelming amounts of information. This class strips the subject down to its basic forms to maximize your learning. www.amerybohling.com

October 7 – 28, 2013 Mondays, 6:30-9:30pm Oil/All Levels $200/4 sessions 800.333.5707 or 480.990.1422

October/November 2013

Linda Tracey Brandon Drawing the Three Hour Portrait Good drawing skills are critical to executing a good portrait. By eliminating color we can concentrate on establishing values and build our ability to see form and shapes in light. After an introduction to the general shape of the head, we will move to drawing the specific characteristics of our classroom models. I plan to demonstrate technique, but most of the time I’ll move from student to student to address various problems they may be having in their work and to develop each student’s skills. www.lindatraceybrandon.com

October 9 – November 13, 2013 Wednesdays, 1-4pm Charcoal/Intermediate $300 + $35 model fee/6 sessions

Julie Gilbert Pollard Traditional Watercolor Fundamentals Traditional watercolor fundamentals for the watercolorist at the beginning of their studies or as a refresher for the watercolor veteran will be the focus for this class – we all benefit from getting back to the basics from time to time! Negative painting – being the foundation of “transparent” watercolor – will be studied in depth, as will brushwork, simplified basic color theory, wet-into-wet and wet-onto-dry methods. Photo references will be used and will be provided for your use, but you are always welcome to paint from your own reference material whenever you wish. There will be demos, exercises, critique and lots of painting time. Class time will be structured, yet open October 15 – November 19, 2013 enough to accommodate the artistic spirit within us all! www.juliegilbertpollard.com

Tuesdays, 1-4pm Watercolor/Beginner $300/6 sessions

Sandra Luehrsen Sculpting Clay Botanicals This three-day workshop will enable students of all levels to make water-based clay botanical sculpture. The floral, vegetable, fruit, or other plant forms can stand-alone, be used as models for two-dimensional art or be incorporated into assemblage sculpture. Artists who paint or draw will gain useful experiential knowledge about form. All participants will enhance their understanding of form, light and shadow, and line in threedimensional space. Work in a purely representational way or invent your own hybrids! During the first two days, students will make clay plant forms using primarily slab, coil, and carving techniques. On the last day of the workshop, participants will add color to their sculptures with under-glazes that look like watercolor. Some will apply a clear shiny or satin glaze over the color. Participants may pick up their finished sculptures after they are kiln October 18, October 19 and October 26, 2013 fired. Students will pay a $35 material fee directly to the instructor. www.sluehrstudios.com

October/November/December 2013

Robert Lemler Drawing the Figure: Line and Tone In this class, students will learn various drawing techniques from an accomplished figure painter. Students will learn how to accurately ‘measure’ the proportions of the head and figure while working from the model. Line, shape, and tonal relationships will be explored through exercises designed to strengthen anatomical understanding and the rendering of the forms of the subject. Students will work in a variety of drawing mediums and be exposed to a variety of techniques for their application and use. Length of pose will vary from the relatively short gestural pose, to the longer format, tonal rendering of our subject. Join us if you would like to learn to draw better and have fun in the process! www.robertlemler.com

Susan Henningsen Portrait Sculpture Have you ever looked at a sculpture and wondered, “How did the artist do that?” In this four week class, students will learn how to create a likeness in clay using a portrait model as our subject. As they sculpt, students will explore ways of creating a variety of moods. There will be instructor demonstrations, including a demonstration of how to capture facial expressions. There will be additional demonstrations and discussion on finishing your sculpture and applying cold patinas on fired clay, and simple mold making techniques will be discussed.

Jane Kelsey-Mapel Hollow Built Figure Sculpture and Kiln-Fired Surfaces During the first two days, students will work in water-based clay using traditional hollow building techniques. They will roll out and assemble slabs of clay to create small scale heads and torsos which will be dried and bisque fired in the kiln by the following Saturdays’ class. No models will be used. Students will be encouraged to work loosely, focusing on responding expressively to the clay as it takes on form and gesture. Demonstrations and individual critiques will take place throughout the workshop and Jane will show slides of a wide variety of fired clay figure sculpture. On Saturday, December 14, Jane will discuss different types of fired surfaces, their application and firing processes. Students will then apply under-glazes as translucent washes and stains December 6, 7 and 14, 2013 to their pieces. These surfaces will become permanent when they are glaze fired the Friday-Saturday/ following Saturday, 9am-4pm week after the workshop. Students may pick up their finished pieces from the school Water-based Clay/All Levels or arrange to have them shipped. Students will pay a $35 glazing/firing fee to the instructor. www.janekelseymapel.com

If you’d like to launch an interest in making art, or reawaken the excitement you might have lost... this class is for you. Whether you’re a beginning artist who’d like the challenge of sketching and working with color, or an experienced artist who’d like to explore new subjects, new places or new techniques, I approach these through artistic journaling.

I love journaling: faces, places, experiences, moods, thoughts, impressions... dinners enjoyed (and sketched) from Thailand to Tuscany... over several decades of travel around the planet. Those memories never fade, always there, in a wealth of colorful pages that I’ll be pleased to share with you, and I’ll kindle your enthusiasm to do the same. www.lewisblehrman.com

March 10 – April 14, 2014 Mondays, 1-4pm Oil/All Levels: Beginners Welcome! $300/6 sessions

Unlike most other subjects, the still life genre offers the artist complete control over every aspect of the final painting. The unlimited choices in color, key, arrangement and lighting one’s subject make still life one of the most popular genres. Design begins with a concept, and ends in an arrangement of elements and lighting which is then translated into paint. Through demonstration, lecture and individual instruction, students will be offered guidance in composing, lighting and painting their subject. This class is suitable for all levels of experience, as students will compose their own arrangements in order to paint in an Alla Prima fashion (paintings which are done in a single session). www.robertlemler.com
