Mark-making: Painting the abstract with ink   Jacqueline Sullivan  

Every artist uses marks. The more you paint, the more you will find yourself developing a mark-making style. In this class we will explore and develop personal mark-making styles. These marks will be combined with additional unique ink painting techniques. Mark-making can be loose and gestural, or structured and controlled. Marks can also be splashes and drips. Most artists work with a variety of marks in every painting. 

Think of marks as building blocks, marks can make patterns to build our works and/or act as a focal point to finish the painting. We'll talk about how to form natural looking organic marks as well as how these marks can divide the space and be the backbone of a more legible work. We will start and end our works with organic marks and asemic (abstract) writing.  Appropriate for those with and with out  a calligraphy background. Come prepared to have fun!

Fri/Sat  September 6 & 7  10 - 4:30   $355/$20 materials

Plein Air Painting in Soft Pastels   Kay Brathol-Hostvet

Pastel is perfect for depicting the various textures and colors of the landscape and is a very portable medium so it is ideal for plein air painting-working directly from nature. You'll complete two small works on different papers, provided by the instructor. Previous experience in soft pastel is highly recommended, but beginners with good drawing skills are welcome. Experienced plein air students may bring their own papers if they wish. We may work off-site for part of the day.   Saturday Sept. 28,   9 - 4   $135    NOTE earlier start time
