“By nurturing the artist, we enrich the community.” The A rt League develops the artist through education, exhibition, and a stimulating, supportive environment, while sharing the experience of the visual arts with the community. The Art League is a multifaceted, 501(c)(3) nonprofit visual arts organization. Since our founding in 1954, The Art League has used the visual arts to bring together people from a wide variety of talents, experiences, and communities. Through this work, we have become the largest visual arts organization of our kind in Virginia. Every year, we fill more than 10,000 class seats, offer exhibit opportunities for nearly 1,000 artists, and connect with a broad audience through a diverse range of artistic programming.

Waxy Media Techniques Lisa Semerad Wa x y media include oil pastels, colored pencils, oil bars, pigment sticks and grease pencils, which have varied degrees of transparency and body or thickness. Depending on the medium, students can create anything from fine detail to textured effects, appearing as a drawing rather than brush work. The class employs solvents, oil painting media, and the technique of scraping to reveal lower layers. Learn about permanent primers, which facilitate corrections and longevity of artwork. Subject matter varies, so there should be plenty of room for students’ own interests. A sound knowledge of drawing and value is helpful.

Beginning/Intermediate Making Comics David Carter From the New Yorker to the daily paper, serious or funny, singlepanel or short-sequence strips, comics of all types express so much with so little!

What is necessa r y is a n awa reness of si mple cha racter desig n, some basic composition, and a consideration of timing. This class ex plores the essentials of conceiv ing, creating, and completing a simple cartoon from the most elementary concept.

Atmospheric Watercolors

Rachel Collins

Peter Ulrich

This intensive workshop gives students a chance to explore the many possibilities of watercolor. It serves as a basic introduction to the medium, a refresher for someone who hasn’t painted for a while, and a preparation for students looking to pursue a longer study of watercolor. No previous watercolor experience is required, although very basic drawing skills are helpful.

Wet-into-wet watercolor offers wonderful opportunities for creating a mood or “atmosphere”. Landscapes and cityscapes in the rain, fog, or haze are especially good candidates for expressive treatment by transparent washes and subtle effects. This approach is not only limited to somber, bad-weather scenes. Bright shimmering sunlight, especially when dappled by overhead trees or sparkling on water, also lends itself to watercolor’s unique effects. This workshop explores a gamut of atmospheric subjects. Students work from photographs and imagination.

Watercolor Technique: Flowers in Sumi-é

Ephraim Rubenstein

Charlene Fuhrman-Schulz

For adventurous artists, wax-resist stands out among the legion of experimental mixed-media drawing methods as particularly compelling and powerful. Acheive dramatic contrasts or delicate passages, controlled rendering or expressive gestures using wax as a stop-out for layered ink washes. The technique achieves complex and powerful effects, perfect for rendering. Students also learn unconventional ways to use standard materials like graphite, ink, charcoal, pastels, and Conte. Students work from a model or their own photographic references. Model fees are extra.

Gain intensive instruction in painting flowers in the splashing ink style of Sumi-é. For the first-time painter or those wishing to expand or refine their repertoire, this workshop offers step-by-step instruction concentrating on flowers like the iris, wisteria, morning glory, peony, and lotus. Instruction also includes background wash, and the subjects typically associated with traditional f lower paintings such as birds, rocks, butterf lies, and bees.

Line and Wash in Watercolor Create dynamic paintings through the contrast of line and wash. Though shape is well understood as an important compositional element, line is often neglected. In this workshop, students employ graphite, ink pen, rigger brush, crayon, or pastel to produce line elements together with watercolor washes to define shapes. Ink pen is also a useful tool for sketching in a travel journal. Using a collection of his travel sketchbooks, the instructor demonstrates how efficiently ink and wash are for capturing travel memories.

Limiting one’s palette to no more than three colors achieves a number of positive things for the artist. First, the composition is strongly unified and harmonious because one is mixing the colors to be used and they are automatically related. Second, the painting conveys a mood such as brilliant hues producing a bright scene, whereas subdued hues produce a more somber scene. Third, when the color palette is limited, it leads to a more careful consideration of composition and value to achieve strong paintings. This workshop explores a wide variety of limited palettes to produce paintings that are unified, convey a mood, and are strongly stated.

Explore ancient Chinese painting style called Po’Mo, where layers of watercolor are applied to a special shikishi* board and then tipped to give the color direction, energy, and motion. Once the painting is dry, areas may be further developed through brushwork. The process is that of “controlled” spontaneity combining wet and dry techniques and abstraction and realism to create expressive landscapes or fully abstract paintings. (*A shikishi is a type of paper board featuring layered rice paper over a metallic gold or silver base. The edges of the board are metallic, as though it has a thin gold or silver frame.)

Portrait Interpretations

Color Mixing for the Artist

Tania Karpowitz

Priscilla Treacy

Looking at art history, this workshop examines how the portrait has been reinterpreted over time. Students experiment with materials, composition, and thinking about their own view of what makes a portrait. As students uncover their idea, they focus on developing their image. Participants are encouraged to start thinking about these ideas before class and to bring some examples of portrait images by other artists. Model fees extra.

This workshop thoroughly explores the four properties of color: hue, value, temperature, and saturation. Targeted exercises help student come away with a greater ability to use color sensitively and creatively. All work is done with either acrylic or oil. A lab fee for some materials is payable to the instructor.

Patrick Kirwin Participants paint dynamic images using various painting knives and acrylic paint. Acrylic is used for its quick drying time and because gel medium can extend the paint as a thick paint body, thus making a more economical use of paint, as in palette knife painting. Participants choose to paint realistically or abstractly, using their own reference or instructor set up still life. Demonstrations show making lines, blends, textural treatments, round objects, the sequence of painting, and demos upon request. December 9 & 10, 2017

Learn to use your camera beyond “auto” mode. Day one teaches the basics of your camera, including exposure, white balance, ISO, and lens choices. Day two includes time photographing “out in the field” with the instructors, followed by detailed discussion on downloading, editing, and organizing digital images. Students should bring a camera with charged batteries.

Photography is all about capturing light. But what light is needed? Daylight doesn’t always cooperate; but pop-up flash is limited. Before investing, learn about the tools professionals use: f lash, strobe, ref lectors, umbrellas, gels, gobos, grids, and snoots. Participants learn to make many of these tools inexpensively. Participants examine how the color of light impacts photographs, and when to change the type of light. This workshop is taught offsite in a studio in A lexandria.

Firing, Form, and Influence Cathi Jefferson

Richard Ormond on Sargent’s Watercolors Co-curator of the current blockbuster exhibit Sargent: The Watercolou rs at the Du lwich Pictu re Gallery in London, Richard Ormond gives insight into John Singer Sargent’s plein air painting expeditions. As a respite from formal studio commissions, Sargent spent his summers from 1900-1914 painting a series of deeply personal and appealing watercolors. Sargent’s work in watercolor was unorthodox. He overturned traditional compositional standards and avoided the obviously pictu resque, developing an audacious and sophisticated technique, an expression of his personal modern aesthetic. He ignored the celebrated panoramas and the traditional description of landscape; instead he challenged the viewer with unconventional angles, confrontational poses and geometric forms. This absorbing lecture takes a fresh look at Sargent’s idiosyncratic view of the world through watercolor.

Cathi Jefferson demonstrates her different approaches for building her unique body of work. Her construction techniques include altering thrown forms, slab or coil building. Cathi also demonstrates her application of slips and surface treatments which compliment her recognizable forms. Discussion includes firing techniques, form composition and the influence of living in rural British Columbia on her aesthetic philosophies, studio practice, and life. Cathi’s functional dishes are grounded in her belief that it is important to have handmade items in our lives to help us stay connected to the natural world. $5
