Many intricate and sculptural pieces of metal jewelry began life as featureless blocks of wax. By working in wax rather than metal, the carver creates form efficiently and opens up design possibilities. Students in this class will gain a thorough understanding of the processes, tools, and materials used to carve wax models for use in lost wax casting. Starting from a simple design, students will transfer it accurately onto a block of wax, then remove large amounts of excess material. Using a wide variety of simple tools, they will add details and refine surfaces, ending up with a completed wax model ready for casting. Casting is NOT part of this class, but students can have their wax models professionally cast or enroll in Introduction to Jewelry Lost Wax Casting to cast their own work. Prerequisite: none.

Durable, vibrant color options await your command when you add powder coating to your skill set. In this workshop, you will learn how to properly clean and prepare metal for thermoset powder application, both of which are critical steps for ensuring a permanent finish. You will then learn how to electrostatically apply the powder and heat-cure pieces to a finished outcome on the same day. This workshop is ideal for becoming familiar with the process and its equipment needs as well as for making a small number of reference samples or pieces to later incorporate into your work. Class time allows for experiments with powder coating techniques like masking, stenciling, and multiple color applications. The instructor will showcase design possibilities and cover what you'll need to powder coat jewelry and small dimensional pieces on your own. During the powder coating class, students are welcome to fabricate items in the studio, but instruction will focus primarily on the powder coating process. Prerequisite: none.

Shellac Plate printmaking is a low-tech and versatile technique for creating etching-like intaglio prints as well as subtly textured collographs. Because they are made with an illustration board substrate, shellac plates can be cut into an almost infinite variety of shapes, allowing the artist to build a “library” of images that can be combined on the press or through collage.In this workshop, you will create a series of shaped plates, which you will use to create both multi-layered prints and printed collage materials. You will be encouraged to experiment with a wide range of effects to express their own visual ideas and aesthetic. Prerequisite: Printmaking experience

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 action packed 'process' with no possibility of staying in your rut if you have one. You will be provided with a large canvas, paper, and drawing and painting materials. Absolute beginners are perfect for this class as well as advanced artists. This workshop is located offsite at NEW Miller School of Art in WHite Center  ALL SUPPLIES PROVIDED.

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.

Vitreography is using glass as a plate to create imagery. Glass has the ability to produce bold true colors and can be wiped as an intaglio and/or rolled as a relief plate. You will use diamond tipped scribes and dremel tools as well as hand tools and stencils to create textures, lines and shapes as well as glass etching cream. Glass plates are very easy to ink and wipe and have the ability to hold a lot of ink in each mark and you can seemingly get an infinite number of prints.

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 action packed 'process' with no possibility of staying in your rut if you have one. You will be provided with a large canvas, paper, and drawing and painting materials. Absolute beginners are perfect for this class as well as advanced artists. This workshop is located offsite at NEW Miller School of Art in Highland Park  ALL SUPPLIES PROVIDED.

Mediums are what we add to oil paint to make it come alive with unique character all its own. The masters carefully guarded their own formulations of oil mediums because they knew how important they were to the very essence of the painting. Now making your own oil medium or even understanding how to use the readymade mediums in the store is becoming a lost art. Historically the alchemy of paint occupied many artists all of their lives. Find out what you may have been missing in your painting and straighten out the confusion array of mediums to make your art come alive! Making your own oil paint is easy and much cheaper, avoid the art store and get some of your materials for much less. Find out how to put together your own set of paints and how to use them in one lesson. In addition we will cover Non-Toxic Oil Painting. Some people would love to paint in oil but are c.

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.

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 action packed 'process' with no possibility of staying in your rut if you have one. You will be provided with a large canvas, paper, and drawing and painting materials. Absolute beginners are perfect for this class as well as advanced artists. This workshop is located offsite at NEW Miller School of Art in WHite Center  ALL SUPPLIES PROVIDED.

Vitreography is using glass as a plate to create imagery. Glass has the ability to produce bold true colors and can be wiped as an intaglio and/or rolled as a relief plate. You will use diamond tipped scribes and dremel tools as well as hand tools and stencils to create textures, lines and shapes as well as glass etching cream. Glass plates are very easy to ink and wipe and have the ability to hold a lot of ink in each mark and you can seemingly get an infinite number of prints.

Michael Pekovich, fine furniture maker and author of The Why and How of Woodworking, will be visiting the west coast for the first time to teach this fun 2-day box class. In it, you'll learn the basics of box making along with exploring the Japanese latticework technique of kumiko. The box joinery will be handled at the tablesaw where you'll learn how to work safely and accurately with small parts. If you're new to machines or a little nervous using them, this a perfect introduction. Then we'll head to the work bench to complete a pair of kumiko panels using two different designs to finish off one box. A set of bevel blocks used in creating the patterns will be provided for each student's use during the class. New sets will be available should a student wish to purchase their own. All of the materials for the boxes and panels will be provided. Mike is the creative director and a frequent contributor to Fine Woodworking magazine. He has been making furniture for over 30 years, and teaches throughout the country. *There is a required list of tools that students need to bring. Email Kim McIntyre at kmcintyre@pratt.org if you want to inquire about the tool list. Students will be sent this list within a week of signing up for the class. *Due to Mike's 3-day class selling out in mere hours, we were able to invite him to come to Seattle longer in order to offer this 2-day long class.

He maintains a studio practice at his shop in Spruce Pine, NC and is in his third year teaching incarcerated artists through the AMCI/Penland Prison Arts Partnership. In this four day workshop students will move through processes of creating a small sculpture using steel sheet and bar material. The workshop will begin by sharing inspirations through a series of exercises geared towards developing subject matter as a driving force for sculpture. Students will expand on these ideas through sketches in paper, wire and foam. Within the first day, students will begin translating these models to cut and formed steel. Student projects will dictate specific technical demonstrations, which will include sheet forming, bending, TIG and MIG welding, grinding and finishing processes. This workshop is designed for all levels, beneficial to the beginner as well as more experienced metalworkers looking for different approaches to designing sculpture. Prerequsite : Forging and basic welding experience advised.

Instructor: Dan Morgan

This class is designed to be the core introductory class that covers good studio practices while learning how to safely use all of the equipment and tools in the main woodworking studio. It will also be the primary prerequisite class for most of the more advanced woodworking classes. Based around several small projects designed by the instructor, you will gain enough experience to comfortably and safely use each piece of power equipment, as well as an understanding of its benefits and limitations. This is a great way to begin woodworking or to refine the skills that you already have. Class time will be split between demonstrations, and individual hands-on shop time creating small projects from start to finish. Prerequsite: None. Due to the intensity of this class attendance in the first class is mandatory. An absence within the first session is considered a withdrawal from the course. Please see FAQ page regarding the withdrawal policy. Supply Fee $90.
