Bill Lundquist 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.

(No class October 2)

Allen Garns “Big, strong, interesting shapes make for good paintings”. Think of anyone from Rembrandt to Rothko. The trouble is nature and our eyes (brain) conspire against that beauty by confronting us with all kinds of interesting details, values, contrasts, colors and little shapes. Those elements can be helpful to a painting but they must be subordinated to the larger shapes and values. This is one of the most fundamental and powerful principles one can learn. This class will explore the beauty of finding the large shapes and using those shapes as an organizing principle to create a successful painting. We will work from still life part of the time and the live model part of the time. www.allengarns.com

Subordination to the Big Picture September 12 - October 17, 2012 Wednesdays, 6:30 - 9:30pm Oil or Pastel • All Levels $270 + $35 model fee/ 6 sessions 10

James Coulter This class is all about the basics and keeping things simple. It is designed for beginning and intermediate painters. Through a series of exercises and drills we will learn how to mix values with color and control saturation. Application of paint layers with variety in brush work will also be covered. We will learn the sequential steps in the painting process and how to use different ways of thinking within each step, as well as the importance of variety within all the elements of a painting. We will discover how the main motif of a painting will factor into ALL decisions in the orchestration of visual energy. We will focus on all elements of the painting process, including thumbnail drawings and compositional concepts. The exercises will be done from simple still life references. This class will not be about making a finished painting, but geared more Basic Painting and Design Part towards the development of sound painting skills. For details on Part 2 see page 15.

Judith Spitz Whether you’re a beginner, intermediate or advanced painter in oil, acrylic, or pastel, you can, and often do, get stuck on the same skill level. Judith, through teaching and stressing the vital artistic techniques such as; shape, value, color, temperature, composition and perspective, will guide the student to reach higher levels of accomplishment. In understanding the master painters of today and yesterday, the student will be led to understand the techniques that made them famous and how to adapt these techniques to strengthen their own paintings. Critiques will clarify the students understanding of strengths and weaknesses in a completely POSITIVE setting. The critique is to further each students understanding of progress and Take Your Painting NEVER to impede that progress either for the student or for the class.

Linda Tracey Brandon Have you ever wanted to be able to draw? “Being a good draftsman” means being able to accurately reproduce what you see onto paper. This is a technical facility which can be learned with practice and attention. Being a good draftsman is a vitally important skill for a representational artist. We’ll explore several ways to draw in this four-week class and introduce important concepts including: how to use basic drawing tools; contour, light and shadow and the illusion of 3 dimensionality; copying drawings “from the flat”; drawing from threedimensional simple geometric shapes (cube, cylinder, sphere etc) using a single light source; drawing a still life; drawing people, including the basics of drawing the human head or the figure. The focus will be on developing each student’s skills, although Drawing for Beginners October 4 - 25, 2012 occasional demonstrations will be given. www.lindatraceybrandon.com

Thursdays, 9am - Noon Graphite • Beginner $180/ 4 sessions

Suzanne Falk The trick to painting things realistically is to not let the objects overwhelm you. In this class, we will break down 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 comfort zones in order to look at things in a fresh way. www.suzannefalk.com

October/November 2012

Jerry Cox 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. My primary goal for the class is for you to have fun while learning about sculpture. The first session will meet at my studio to discuss the creative process and determine your goals and supply needs for the course.

Kim Johnson Nechtman Often the successful outcome of a painting is pre-determined during the initial creation of a piece rather than by any finishing element. The contribution of lights, darks, mid-tones, dynamic shapes, and lost and found edges are often as or more important than the paint itself. This class focuses on understanding good composition and the importance of making time to complete a good contour drawing on paper before starting to paint. www.kj-art.com

The trick to painting things realistically is to not let the objects overwhelm you. In this class, we will break down how to start on the right path. First, by learning how to not be intimidated by oils, then 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 comfort zones in order to look at things in a fresh way. www.suzannefalk.com

Robert Lemler 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.

Allen Garns Through a series of exercises and still life painting, you will gain a deeper understanding of how to mix the color you want, how to use intensity along with beautiful grayed colors, the essential relationship between color and value and how to relate colors to one another on the canvas. Of course, we will not ignore other aspects of painting, but I feel a focus on this one subject would be very valuable. www.allengarns.com Thursday, December 6, 2012, 9am - 4pm

Micro Workshops

Allen Garns Design and composition can make or break a picture. We often think of composition as being the placement of shapes and things. Just as important, however, is the organization of lights and darks or values. Through some carefully planned exercises, this class will deepen your understanding of how to use an economy of values to create strong compositions. www.allengarns.com Tuesday, March 12, 2013, 9am - 4pm

Composing with Objects, Shapes and Values Oil, Acrylic, or Pastel • All Levels $90/ 1 session

Michael Maczuga Everyone admires the thick brush stroke, deliberate and full of energy. Learning what to put in that stroke, and when to define the detail, is a challenge that we are all faced with. This workshop will confront that issue and how it relates to one’s approach to the entire painting. www.michaelmaczuga.com Tuesday, April 9, 2013, 9am - 4pm

The Thick and Thin of Painting Oil • All Levels $90 + $10 model fee/ 1 session

Julie Gilbert Pollard

The Watercolorist Segues to Oil January 12 - February 16, 2013 Saturdays, 10am - 1pm Oil over Acrylic Watercolor • All Levels: Some experience necessary $270/ 6 sessions

Watercolor and oil require the painter to think in opposites: “light to dark” versus “dark to light”, transparent versus opaque, and so on. The transition from “thinking in watercolor” to “thinking in oil” can be smoothed by beginning your oil painting with fluid acrylics used as watercolor. Two methods using acrylic as the under-painting will be explored. Don’t have oils? Don’t worry – it will not be necessary for you to buy oil paint! Try it out first: five essential Holbein DUO Aqua Oil colors will be provided (dollops squeezed onto your palette). You need only add a brush and a canvas or multi-media support to your acrylic or watercolor supplies. Please see the supply list for suggested oil brush and watercolor/acrylic supplies you will need. A photo will be provided, but you are always welcome to paint from your own reference material. There will be demonstrations, exercises, critique and lots of painting time. www.juliegilbertpollard.com
