Lightweight and beautiful, wood is a great material for making large, eye-catching jewelry. In this workshop we'll focus on rings made from wood. We will customize pre-made wooden rings using a variety of stonesetting, inlay, and surface modification techniques. The store-bought rings will allow us to jump straight into design options, but interested students will also have a chance to review the process (and the challenges) of creating wood rings from scratch. You'll leave with at 1-2 custom rings and an understanding of how to make many more!. Prerequisite: none.

Add some color to the grey days of January! Thermosetting powders form a durable coating on almost any type of metal in almost any shade of the rainbow. Learn how to properly clean and prepare metal for powder application--critical steps for ensuring a permanent finish. Learn how to electrostatically apply the powder and heat-cure pieces for 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.

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 Miller School of Art in Georgetown. ALL SUPPLIES PROVIDED.

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. ALL SUPPLIES PROVIDED. Prerequisite: none

This intensive painting workshop will focus on the representation of the human form using a simple palette structure to create complex flesh tones.  With examples from art history to guide us, we will use a limited selection of primary, warm, and cool colors on tinted and white grounds to create the nuanced color relationships that we see on a live model.  

 

The class is an excellent introduction to figure painting, but the challenge of structuring flesh tones using warm and cool colors is an excellent foundation for future study in painting, whether or not the figure remains your primary focus in the future.  Students should have some experience with paint to take this class.  Students may use oil or acrylic paint in this class, but oil paint is recommended.

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.

The technique uses principles from lithography and can be used to print drawings, photographs, found objects- anything that can be photocopied! We will explore building images through layering, multiple color printing, and printing on both glass and paper. (When printing on glass this technique differs from a decal process in that it results in prints composed of fine glass powder fired onto a glass sheet.) You will create a variety of samples exploring the potentials of the process, including using reactive glasses to widen your color palette. This technique can be used with or without a press.

Damascus steel, the stuff of ancient legends, is taken one step further in the current way of replicating it by forge welding layered steel with a hydraulic press. Celeste Tracy has been making Damascus at Pratt for nine years and continues to be fascinated with the process. She will familiarize students with this process by using Pratt's Damascus forge and hydraulic press built specifically for this purpose. This technique opens up the possibilities of a myriad of designs and uses for the patterned steel produced. The student will come away with a billet ready to transform into a future work of art.

Green woodworking is when you use a freshly cut log. The extra moisture in the wood makes carving way easier to do then when working with dried wood. Experience getting to work green wood with an adze and a hook knife to make a bowl. Bowls in this carving style tend to take on a deeper platter shape and often tool marks are intentionally left for visual interest due to the texture they leave behind. All experience levels are welcome. If you have taken Ed's Carving Tool Making class, this will be a fun opportunity to use your new tools. ***This class will meet in the turning studio.

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.

We will begin by exploring the origins of the Acari lamp traditions as well as current trends in the art of scuptural paper lamps. From this we can gain inspiration and ideas for a pendant lamp design that can be completed in the five day class. In this class you will learn to build a sculptural lamp using several different wood bending techniques such as heat bending thin strips of wood, and using basket Reed, and a tapered lamination technique that is unique and fun. This is a technique I use to create three dimensional bends such as spirals, and helical forms without the constraints of clamps or conventional bending forms. You will learn the basics of the tapered lamination process, beginning with rough lumber that you will joint, plane, and rip into thin strips to be tapered. Send an email to Kim Mcintyre kmcintyre@pratt.org to get the finer details of the class, including the required student tool list.
