What can I say, I like ferns... and tall grass... and flowers....

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We are ever hopeful for late May or the beginning of June and beyond.  Planning with some of our visiting instructors for June, July, and August have been added but of course this may change over time. Additional program options are waiting to be added as this pandemic, Covid 19 allows. Decisions will be ever evolving.

It is hoped that you and yours are well and able to steer clear of infection with best practices that are known at this time.

The Cruciform -  Designing the Abstract Painting  Jacqueline Sullivan

A typical cruciform symbol is named after the Latin word for "cross-shaped", having a simple construction of two perpendicular intersecting lines. Using this shape in an abstract painting gives us a place to start and build from. We'll work with the "rule of thirds" with either a high cross or low crossing line. We'll build out from our cruciform with simple collage and texture. The class will use Golden Fluid Acrylics and Golden High Flow paint to build their paintings with thin layers of color. Students will receive a lot of individual attention and the painting that they leave with will be truly their own expression   Sat./Sun.  June 6th / 7th,   10 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.  $350/$20 materials

Paired Needle Binding Jackie Hefty
 
 
It just sounds difficult, not really so hard, but it gives you bragging rights! You will be sure to impress your friends or family with your bookmaking skills when you show them this creation. An exposed stitching design on the spine of the book resembles a herringbone pattern.  This book is designed to lie flat when open which allows for ease in drawing or writing. Makes a great gift! Previous book making is recommended, but not required. Minimal supplies are necessary to continue making beautiful books at home. Fri. June 12, 12:30 - 4:30   $70/$15 materials  (Papers will be available for purchase if you need for your signatures, see supply list for more information.)

Plein Air Painting in Soft Pastel  Kay Brathol-Hostvet

Plein Air Soft Pastels


Pastel is perfect for depicting the various textures and colors of the spring landscape and is a very portable medium so it is ideal for plein air painting—working directly from nature. You'll complete two or three 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 or work in the medium of their choice. We may work off-site for part of the day.  Sunday, June 14, 2020     9 a.m. - 4 p.m.    NOTE: earlier than usual start time  $160

Collagraphs: Intro to Mixed Media Printmaking  Jackie Hefty

Collagraphs incorporate aspects of relief and intaglio printmaking, additive and subtractive methods of working, all in an intriguing mixed media approach to plate-making. Think texture printing; using everyday objects (cardboard, lace, washers, yarn) transformed into textural elements enhancing your unique prints. Take an individualized approach in what can be either objective or non-objective subject matter.   Thurs. June 18 and June 25,   11 a.m. - 4 p.m. $155/$20 materials   Students supply papers for printing.
