About The Art League

The Art League Development 703-519-1741

Gallery 703-683-1780

“By nurturing the artist, we enrich the community.” The Art League develops the artist through education, exhibition, and a stimulating, supportive environment, while sharing the experience of the visual arts with the community. You may be new to The Art League through participation in exhibits in our gallery, or through studies at our prestigious school. Whatever your introduction to us is, you’ll enjoy our dynamic and comprehensive visual arts offerings as well as exhibition and art sales opportunities in the largest gallery at the landmark Torpedo Factory Art Center (TFAC). These opportunities are presented by the League’s hundreds of artists, patrons, and volunteers.

Development/Outreach 703-519-1741 Outreach/ Scholarships/ Internships The League partners with the Alexandria Court Service Unit on our award-winning outreach project, SOHO—A Space of Her Own. The project teams mentors with at-risk girls who receive intensive art instruction and develop essential life skills. Working in groups, the girls redesign their personal spaces using their artwork and visual concepts learned during the program. To become a mentor or learn more, contact the Development Office. The Geri Gordon Scholarship Fund was established in 1998 to celebrate former Art League School Director Geri Gordon’s remarkable vision and 20 years of service and dedication. Scholarships are awarded for League art classes. Donations to the fund are welcome. Unpaid internships are available throughout the year. They provide excellent work experience in the visual arts and meet college internship requirements. For details, contact the Gallery.

Pencil Rendering, Drypoint Etching, and Silverpoint Drawing Priscilla Treacy

Introduction to Artistic Anatomical Drawing Thanasi Papapostolou Artistic anatomy is considered by centuries of artists and art academies to be the indispensable bedrock of the figurative arts. This class introduces students to the basic principles of figure structure and anatomy. Progressing sequentially, the student learns to “see” anatomical form and render it effectively. This class is a must for those who are seeking to further their understanding and perception in drawing, painting, or sculpting the human form. Students work from a live model and lectures. Drawing materials are required, and model fees are extra.

Composition & Design Fundamentals Lisa Semerad The foundation of strong imagery is design—a vital element to all art forms. Students learn to recognize and control movement within the picture plane through study of shape, value, pattern, line, texture, and color in multiple formats. Most exercises are in abstract form, which are then related to both abstract and representational art. No previous drawing experience needed.

Two weeks of sharpening drawing skills using graded graphite pencils on refined, rendered drawings prepare the student for two weeks of drypoint etching. No chemicals are used in this type of printmaking as all one needs are a steel or diamond point and a piece of plastic or metal. This long revered method produces beautiful, seductive prints. Two weeks of drawing with a piece of silver in a holder on specially prepared paper concludes the class. A materials fee is payable to the instructor for certain supplies. Wednesday 10:00am–12:30pm

This course builds on the concepts learned in Composition and Design Fundamentals. Students use a variety of visual concepts to create more inventive, emotionally powerful, cohesive works of art. Representation, depth, transparency, movement, narrative, and color are added to the design equation. Students enjoy success applying these universal theories and techniques across a range of media, subject matters, and styles. Weekly concepts are applied to personal subjects or teachers assignments. Group critiques enrich the class. The instructor has a broad knowledge of drawing materials, but previous experience in individual chosen media is required. Acrylics, oil bars, oil and chalk pastels, and abstract artists are welcome. Sorry, no oil paint.

The exercises are designed to sensitize the mind and eye to the human form’s dynamic design and provide an understanding of its anatomy, proportion, and symmetry. Different media (both wet and dry) are used each quarter. Short and long poses provide both gestural and study opportunities. Experienced students may work in the media of their choice.

The Art of Caricature David Carter The form and communicative potential of the face is a poignant means of expression for the artist. The art of caricature extends this visual vocabulary beyond nature’s normal repertoire. Whether for humor, satire, or the creation of fictional characters, caricature is “hyper-portraiture.” Students learn to combine anatomy with creative techniques for exaggerating and distorting the rhythms, gestures, and proportions that make each face unique. Prior drawing/portrait experience is helpful. Model fees are extra.

Opaque Watercolor in Miniature

Steve Fleming

Priscilla Treacy

This class offers a unique, creative atmosphere where engaging the right brain in the painting process is the fundamental goal. Each week’s lesson is based on the core concept of moving one’s work to the next level. A discussion of concepts and artists as well as complete demonstrations and lectures establishes the direction of each class. Students are encouraged to work in their own personal style and direction, and there is no preferred method. Experience in watercolor painting is required.

Miniature painting has had a rich tradition ranging from ancient Rome and medieval illuminated manuscripts, to India and Persia, to the Renaissance. The small format encourages the artist to create something intimate and personal. Gouache is the perfect medium for this type of work. Gouache is a heavy, opaque watercolor paint that has been used for centuries. It is easier to handle than transparent watercolor because it can be continually reworked, or “corrected.” Students learn techniques and use of tools and materials while the instructor provides examples, designs, and source materials for paintings. Different surfaces and formats are explored and demos of the medium are included.

Trompe L’oeil and Photo Realism


Potential Space and the Found

Intermediate

Carol Dupré

Portrait Painting (Oil or Pastel)

“Creative evolution” and “structural components” form a balancing act on the edge of the unknown—with “unknown” accepted as one of these: abyss, uncanny, or sublime. Artists consider them as one, and separate, for well-rounded exploration. With two canvases underway, first is the spectral notion of the cityscape, second is the spectral portrayal of the figure. The spectral includes consideration of initiation (where concept is still immaterial) and then development of structural components in association with concepts, genres, corpus of texts and fictional theories or a meta-theoretical perspective: doubt, transgression, play, the pecu liar, and so on. Participants discover that genealogy of a concept rips beyond boundaries of containment in an “endless deferral of meaning” that operates between the seductive arts—film, theater, literature, painting—to include theory and psychoanalysis: leading to the historical genre or the fantastic-realist blend. Class includes: painting time; printed lectures; discussion; films; preparation for series and exhibition.

This class focuses on the two most important traditions in classical painting—Disegno and Colore. The first half of the term looks at the sculptural Tuscan approach of Disegno which involves a developed grisaille and subsequent layers of glazed paint. The second half of the term features the painterly Venetian practice of Colore which relies on direct application of paint.

Collage: Art of Transformation

Students find ways to link storylines and visual elements to say something with paint. By approaching content through personal experience, gestural drawing or painting, and experimentation with seemingly random ideas, discoveries are made that lead to individualistic narrative work. Risk-taking, intuitive problem-solving, and discussion are encouraged and lead the student to insightful solutions. The building of one’s own vocabulary of forms is a goal.

This is the perfect opportunity to finally use those papers, images, odds and ends, and other stashed away ephemera. Students integrate both disparate and complimentary fragments into new collage compositions. Participants are encouraged to ask questions, learn about adhesives, transform materials and ideas into new forms, and enjoy the play of creativity.

Paste Papers

Spinning Thread from Paper

Hermineh Miller

Saaraliisa Ylitalo

Originally used as wrapping and end papers in the 1650’s, paste papers offer exciting design possibilities to modern calligraphers. This workshop delves into a variety of tools and techniques used to make patterns on paper. Paper selection, making and coloring paste, and drying methods are also discussed. Paste making is demonstrated. Participants leave with hand-made samples of paste papers, several recipes for different pastes, and a bibliography.

The art of making thread and using it to weave cloth dates back to 7th century Japan. In this class students prepare Japanese papers to make shifu; twist the paper into thread using a rough brick, hand held spindles and spinning wheels; and finally weave a small piece of cloth on a simple card loom from these hand spun threads. Participants also explore coloring on the paper and discuss contemporary uses for paper thread such as book binding, knitting, and weaving. A supply fee is payable to the instructor, and varies depending on the materials used.

Japanese Papermaking and Beyond Saaraliisa Ylitalo Japanese paper known as washi is characterized by its thinness and strength and the technique is applicable to all plant fibers. This class covers all the steps of Japanese papermaking, starting with pulp preparation, cooking and scraping the fibers clean, and then beating them into pulp. Participants form sheets using the nagashizuki method with flexible screens as is practiced in Japan with kozu, gampi, and abaca (Philippine hemp) fibers. Students also explore decorative and very large sheets of paper. This method does not demand expensive Japanese screens (sugeta) and equipment, but instead is adaptable to our own western studios.

Drawing Workshops

All levels of artists gain a better understanding of the principles of drawing from observation. Demonstrations and exercises are used to explain perspective, light and shadow, line and mass, and simplifying techniques. All topics are adapted to levels suited to the student body. This is a great place to start for beginners and an invaluable back-to-basics course for the more experienced student.


Structural Drawing Dan Thompson This drawing workshop is presented as a way of analyzing the figure in a long-posed drawing or painting situation. In part one, the figure is set-up as a two-day long pose, and work begins on gesture, proportion, shape, and tone. In part two the human figure is analyzed by creating a simple diagram of the components of the figure in space. This diagram is then developed according to the concerns of plane, rhythm, perspective, and constructive anatomy. Modeling and shading are explored in the on-going drawing. $200 August 24 & 25, 2013

Limited Palette Watercolors Peter Ulrich 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. $175 December 14 & 15, 2013 $175 June 14 & 15, 2014

If participants complete one blowhorn stake and one mushroom stake the cost of the class is far less than the retail cost of those two stakes. Cutting, forming, welding, grinding, sanding, and polishing techniques are demonstrated. Prior jewelry or silversmithing experience is required. Welders, grinders, and other large power tools are used. This workshop is physically demanding and also requires reasonably good eyesight and depth perception. A materials fee is payable to the instructor (approximately $70) but varies depending on the material used. Registered students should contact the instructor at least one week prior to class to discuss individual material needs.
