Printmaking Techniques: Monotype and Reliefs Klara Glosova Weds 1:30pm-4:30pm 4/11-6/13

This class is an introduction to basic printmaking techniques such as monotype and relief print. Monotype is an additive method of printmaking where artists draw, paint, use stencils, and otherwise manipulate the smooth surface of a printing plate in order to produce a unique print. Relief printing, such as linocut, uses a reductive method to produce a final image by carving the surface and removing negative areas. Both monotype and relief print methods require breaking down the image into separate areas and sequences of steps. Starting with an idea, a drawing or a photograph, you will learn to analyze and deconstruct images in order to put them back together as prints.

INSTRUCTOR HIGHLIGHT

MIKE MAGRATH Mike Magrath has spent most of his adult life in the Pacific Northwest, having moved from New England in the '80s to attend Reed College in Portland, Oregon where he studied mythology and comparative religions. Though initially selftaught in figurative sculpture, he has studied and taught in a number of rich sculptural environments including the University of Washington, the Florence Academy of Art in Italy, The Art Academy of London, and, since 2005, the Gage Art Academy of Art where he currently is the director of the Magrath Sculpture Atelier.

Figure Drawing on Toned Paper

Juliette Aristides Mon-Fri 9:30am-4:30pm 3/26-3/30

Portrait Drawing

Gary Faigin Mon-Thu 9:30am-4:30pm 3/26-3/29

Explore atmospheric use of tone in this figure-drawing immersion with renowned Atelier instructor Juliette Aristides. Strong management of values in a composition is responsible for much of the power and visual impact of a work of art. Using the figure model as your subject, you will look at many different aspects of tone such as composition, shape, edges, and contrast. You will create two kinds of work: a reductive drawing where you apply the charcoal first and remove the tone to reveal a strong value pattern. In addition, you will draw on toned paper with white, where the charcoal or pencil is built up gradually to create form.

Over the course of four intensive days working from portrait models and your own self-portrait, learn the essential techniques and concepts of line, value, volume, structure, and composition in rendering complex portraits. Explore the patterns and proportions of the facial structure, especially the planes of the skull, and learn to construct the features one-at-a-time with special attention paid to the eyes. Through demonstrations and hands-on practice you will learn working methods that are clear and flexible, designed to increase perceptual observation, problem-solving skills, and technical application.

Shaping Content: Material Into Meaning

In The Studios Of The Old Masters

The quest to understand the world around us through the process of drawing or painting is a primal one, from the earliest cave paintings in Chauvet and Altamira to the eloquent tagging of Banksy. This workshop is focused on developing meaningful content while exploring historical methods and materials in painting. Participants will learn basic skills in preparation of linen and other fabrics for oil painting, including both stretched and panel mounting fabric. Glue sizing, oil grounding, and strategies for building dynamic and subtle physical structures will be followed by lectures and demonstrations tracing the search for personal content.

Taught by the founders of the Academy of Realist Art in Edinburgh, Scotland, instructors Ewan McNaughton and Lea Vaughn take students through the stages of painting in the tradition of the old masters. Working from a selected study, students learn the specific step-by-step process to achieve an exact copy, as well as gain a clear understanding of the principles of oil painting and the best techniques and materials to use.

There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” ~Maya Angelou. Explore your identity and create artwork to express the many different assets of your lives and personalities. We will learn narrative illustration, and how to use public art as an act of resistance with printmaking and stencils to tell our important stories! Instruction in Spanish/English.

Self-portraits aren’t just about what you see in the mirror. Self-portraits are about all of the complexities of the self, both externally visible and internally expressed. In these classes we’ll work on self-portraits, anatomical drawings, and autobiographical comics to examine who we are through stories and images.

Come create visual narrative work collaboratively to broaden your avenues of self-expression. Through group cartooning and storytelling exercises we will go places that are individually inaccessible and through collaboration we will deepen our own artistic practice.

Explorations in Figure Drawing

Designed for young artists interested in taking their art to the next level, we’ll explore figure, perspective, and landscape creation using a variety of drawing techniques and dry and wet media. Each week, young artists will use inspiration from the exhibition “Figuring History: Robert Colescott, Kerry James Marshall, Mikalene Thomas” at the Seattle Art Museum to work on drawing approaches using graphite, charcoal, acrylic paints, and collage.

Using traditional media, students will develop a strategic approach for constructing a realistic figure from life using proportion, gesture, comparative measurement, and value. Weekly demonstrations will focus on blocking in the figure and exploring how light illuminates the three-dimensional nature of the body. Students will work with several professional models, beginning with short poses and building up to longer drawings. By the end of the class when they will have the option to blend what they see with imagination.
