Create small sculptural structures and jewelry elements using techniques that are borrowed from fiber traditions. Using limited tools and easily accessible materials, you can make parts and pieces that are strong, flexible, and lightweight. This workshop focuses on imparting basic processes that can be expanded upon or created as multiples to build more complex constructions. All you need is a table to work at, some wire, and a few simple hand tools. 

Each online class session will feature a combination of live demonstrations, pre-recorded reference videos and plenty of supervised work time. It is suggested that students continue to work on their projects outside of class, and there will be an opportunity to consult the instructor during office hours to be scheduled between sessions. The skills introduced in this class can be practiced almost anywhere, and will also provide a foundation for future in-studio classes in this genre.

Prerequisite: None. Supply Fee: $25.

*Students will pick up a supply kit from Pratt prior to the first class. Students will need to provide their own hand tools based on a tool list provided (namely needle nose pliers with cutters); additional, optional items could include other pliers, a hammer and hammering surface, a bench pin, or other metalsmithing tools). Students receiving Tuition Assistance may request to borrow a tool kit from Pratt.

Have you ever wanted to learn to draw and paint from the figure without having to draw like Leonardo? Then this rigorous, but fun class is for you. Learn how to follow shapes, create space, and most of all compose your page, without painstaking proportions and measurements. We will use the model to look hard, but we won't be working towards 19th century realism. You will be composing and deconstructing on the fly, at a fast pace, alternating with very slow and deliberate observation. You can't be attached to the outcome, or even have any idea of what your work will look like when it is done. In fact your work will be “undone” if it gets predictable. This will be an action packed 'process' with no possibility of staying in your rut if you have one.  You will be provided with a large paper, drawing and painting materials. Absolute beginners are perfect for this class as well as advanced artists.  Supply fee upon registration.  

This workshop is located offsite at The Miller School of Art in White Center.

Did you ever wonder how Bonnard, Manet, or Cezanne handled their oil paint?  You can learn a lot by imitating the paint application of the Masters. Some used layers of dry paint, some had directional strokes, and some had lush wet strokes.  Unlike the older masters who used layers of glazes over monotone underpaintings, the Moderns each had an individual method that you can experience yourself. When you understand how the paintings were made you gain insight into the vision of the unique person who created them.  Plus with some historical context you will realize how innovative and daring they were. In this workshop we will work with oil paint on three canvases to reproduce a section of a painting from each of the artists listed above. When you are done you will be able to go to museums and get a feeling for what went into the painting you are observing.  You will also develop approaches to try in your own paintings. Bring your own brushes if you have them. Supply fee upon registration.

In this Beginning/Intermediate painting class, we will learn basic techniques of painting with a concentration on composition, color, and brush techniques. Each week we will look at a different artist's work from European to American and talk about their techniques, aesthetic, and color pallet. Demonstrations will be given on how the works were composed and created. Using this knowledge, you will create your own paintings using the influence of the artist of the week. For example, if we look at Van Gogh's thick brushwork and vivid color, you will make a painting using that pallet and thick brushwork. If we explore the paintings of Jacob Lawrence, we will talk of his smooth surface and use of primary colors, then using objects around your home, you will make your own work.

Many people think that if they can’t draw in proportion they are ‘not talented’ and have no business doing art.  Nothing could be further from the truth. If you are not suited to careful measuring and painstaking draftsmanship you are not alone.  This has nothing to do with whether or not you are ‘talented’ or whether or not you should try making art. This workshop will teach even the most drafting averse person how to get proportion without sacrificing the real value of the artwork, which is to learn to be comfortable with your own set of ‘talents’.  Some people never can make precise measurements, but they can still draw in proportion through an intuitive quick approach.  Supply fee upon registration.

We will be centering imagery and symbolism that reflects growth and healing, all while carving into the natural fibers of the wood material (linocut is ok, too) and transferring the image on to printmaking paper.

In this class you will learn the basics of stone lithography. Lithography is a printing process based on the principle that oil and water do not mix. By using grease based drawing materials, the stone can be processed in order to make it receptive to water, while the drawn elements become receptive to oil based printing ink. Lithography is very adaptable to a variety of imagery, artistic styles, and mark making.  Learn how to grain a stone, how to transfer your design, process the drawing, and how to properly print the stone on a lithographic press.

Painting with an encaustic pen is a quiet meditation on process and discovery. It favors patience and deliberateness. The slow build-up of wax, stroke by stroke, layer upon layer, adding colors bit by bit and carefully mixing them directly on the panel is appealing. 

This method lends itself especially well to working on a small surface. The encaustic painters of Greece, who developed this process, seldom made pictures larger than the average head. Prerequisite: None

Learn how to build curved wood shapes using veneer, a vacuum press, and a whoooole lotta glue. In this class, you'll learn the process of vacuum-press bent wood lamination by building your own custom-shaped skateboard deck. On day one, you'll sculpt the form for your deck from rigid foam insulation, cut maple veneers to shape, and work as a team to glue up your veneer stack. Overnight, your lamination will dry as atmospheric pressure holds the wood to the form. On day two, you'll remove your now-solid deck from the vacuum press, shape and sand the edges and faces of your custom deck, and drill truck holes (if you bring your own trucks). If time permits, you can also apply a sealer clear coat. This class is great for anyone--beginners to experts--who want to learn how to bend wood...for skateboards, furniture, or other woodworking applications. All supplies and tools for making your skateboard deck are supplied. Trucks, wheels, nuts/bolts, and bearings are not included. Bring your own trucks for drilling truck holes. Supply fee: $70
