Understanding Light & Form
Instructor: Joanne Mehl





IN-PERSON CLASS

Feb 27 - Apr 10, 2023

Mondays | 9:30 AM - 12:30 PM

All Levels | Drawing / Charcoal

Adults + Youth (13 +)


Studying how light renders form is integral to a classical foundation in drawing and painting. Understanding how light and shadow work helps create convincing form and volume in portraits and still lives. This is true whether you work in a realistic or painterly style. Using charcoal as our medium, we'll first study how light renders cubes, spheres, and cylinders; which will help us render the face's complex forms. We'll then proceed to the study of light on a plaster cast, and then finally to a live model. By the end of this class you should have a thorough understanding of how light behaves in the shadow and highlight areas, and how to utilize the invaluable effect of simultaneous contrast.

This course will focus on depicting trees and greenery in your sketches! Trees are a vital element to the health and esthetics of any urban setting. They filter light, create intricate textures, and mark seasonal changes. Yet, drawing natural looking greenery could be challenging–some sketchers get lost trying to draw every single leaf, others struggle with drawing convincing canopy shapes. We will demonstrate how to capture different elements of a tree and how to use color to make sense of light and shadow to imply urban forests.

 

This class will develop your skills to draw onsite, from direct observation.

This allows you to concentrate entirely on the tonal relationships of your composition, without having to worry about color.  As a final step we explore adding glazes and scumbles of warm and cool colors to make your paintings glow.


We will do copies of Masters such as Rembrandt, Vermeer, Caravaggio, and DaVinci.

You saw the perfect scene. It’s just what you want. It’s fleeting and you don’t have time, or your paints aren’t with you! Could you paint the scene later from a sketch and fragments of memory Yes, you could--if you know what’s essential!

Learn the art of seeing and drawing the seen. We'll practice the quick spontaneous sketch, the longer study, and taking notes for value and color. From all this depth of observation you can recall a scene and paint it on a canvas in color. Will it be a realistic reconstruction? Possibly. More importantly, it could feel like that mysterious memory of something you really saw. This method works with landscape, portrait, interiors, still life, or made up stuff out of your heart.

Sound intriguing? Come try it with Jef Gunn who’s been doing this for decades.

Expressive Painting
Instructor: Joanne R. Kollman





IN-PERSON CLASS

Mar 4 - Jun 3, 2023

Saturdays | 9:30 AM - 12:30 PM

All Levels | Painting (all types) / Drawing 

Learn efficient ways to begin and complete a painting. Painting uses a basic structure regardless of the subject or type of paint that you use. This class is an excellent way to: focus on the big idea, understand the importance of composition and value in painting, practice & utilize color mixing, understand brush strokes and how to handle paint.

Lectures, demos and critiques start the class with individual help always available. Direct observation from life is the best approach to understand color; it is about relationship. We work from fresh flower still life, the clothed model and periodically paint landscape at a designated location during the fair-weather season. Students are encouraged to choose their own subject and receive guidance on working effectively from different source materials.

If you would like materials provided for your first paid class, contact the instructor. Signing up for the series builds a fundamental foundation & a process to large studio paintings; drop-ins are welcome however sign up ahead online if you can so I know how many to expect or contact me via email with any questions. Beginners and all levels can start with expressive broad charcoal drawing to further understand the importance of value in painting.

This class meets in the Upstairs Studio, except when a workshop is scheduled. Signs will be posted directing students to the correct classroom. Though this class is designed for oil painters, all painters are welcome.

Paint A Portrait Like The Old Masters
Instructor: Randall Vemer





IN-PERSON CLASS
Mar 7 - Apr 25, 2023
Tuesdays | 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Intermediate | Painting / Drawing

This fun class explores Renaissance and Baroque methods to achieve rapid success in painting portraits and figures. We will create Underpaintings using browns (known as Imprimatura), or black-and-white (known as Grisaille). The Underpainting is a fairly complete tonal rendering of the final painting. This allows you to concentrate entirely on the tonal relationships of your composition, without having to worry about color. As a final step we explore adding glazes and scumbles of warm and cool colors to make your paintings glow.

We will do copies of Masters such as Rembrandt, Vermeer, Caravaggio, and DaVinci and apply to modern portrait of your choosing. Randall will lead you step by step through Classical Art principles in order to achieve remarkable success! This method has been employed for over 300 years in European art. In addition, it is FUN! Supplemented with books, projected slides, weekly videos in advance or in class, personal email critiques, and classical props.

All Levels | Printmaking
Adults + Youth (13+)

Let’s keep making woodcut prints!

Woodcut printing is the oldest form of printmaking and it’s still a bold and exciting print medium. Drawing on and cutting into the block is a direct way to make prints.

You’ll learn how to successfully design woodcuts from drawings. You’ll learn the safe and effective use of cutting knives and gouges, and how to sharpen them. Cutting tools are safest when sharp!

Beginners will start with simple designs, learning the basics of cutting, proofing and printing, and keeping tools sharp and safe.

Intermediate woodcut artists will up their game with more intricate designs, nuanced printing methods, controlling prints through a full edition, and bringing in color with additional blocks using various methods of registration.

 

Everyone who registers will receive a list of supplies that are available at certain local art supply stores : woodcut chisel and gouge set, particular papers, and a baren. All ink and some wood blocks and linoleum blocs will be provided.

Each finished block and stamps can be used to create many impressions. Each student will create a batch collection of their own small stamp blocks as well as some larger blocks to create a run of prints. The final day of class will finish with a print trade.
