This class is a look into the world of working with cane. We will cover the very basics of pulling cane, starting with filligranna (straight cane), clear or colored core and clear core with color on the outside, as well as a myriad of other possibilities. As the foundations of gathering, marvering, and transferring to a post are established we will delve into color overlays and stuff cups. In addition to pulling the cane, the process of picking up the cane to make small vessels, tumblers, and ornaments will be covered. Successful cane pulling happens by repetition to sharpen your eyes and hands for managing the heat correctly and seeing how the glass is moving. Look forward to a fun class. For me, pulling cane is one of the coolest things in glass, right up there with Prince Rupert's drops. Prerequisite: At least one session of intermediate glass blowing or equivalent.

Veterans Glassblowing Day was initially inspired by President Obama's plea for citizens to help our veterans find work after returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan. Following President Obama's passing of the Veterans Skills to Jobs Act in July 2012, longtime glassblower Lisa Aronzon was inspired by this call to action and invited the glassblowing community to come together in support of our veterans. As our nation faces financial uncertainty, social revolution, acts of violence, and military conflicts, Veterans Glassblowing Day offers a terrific opportunity for Americans to pay it forward to our troops. Pratt Fine Arts Center is proud to offer this FREE opportunity to our Veterans.

In this workshop each student will complete a stunning belt buckle using a clean and elegant mechanism system, while exploring the addition of a new material ~ COCONUT! Join us and enjoy learning great possibilities for creating unique surface texture and 3-D low relief using this great organic material. Embellish the front side of your buckle with durable sections of hand carved coconut. Coconut is a wonderful material because it acts much like a hardwood, only it's even easier to carve with jewelers tools because of a unique type of woven grain structure. Wire rivets will also be a “fixture” so to speak in this class! Both the buckle mechanisms and hand-carved coconut sections will be attached to our back plate by rivets. This class is a great way to learn tips and tricks for working with coconut, while making something fun and wearable. Prerequisite: Beginning JM. Supply Fee: $80.

Do you love the idea of painting the figure but are intimidated to try because you haven’t drawn before?  Or do you like to paint and draw the figure but wish your work didn’t look like stiff figure studies. Either way this class is for you. We will start with extensive rapid drawing and painting exercises on integrating the figure into a whole composition. The next seven hours will develop one large stretched canvas into a visual experience where you will continually revise your entire painting until the whole comes together.  In the end you may not have a carefully proportioned model but you will have a canvas where all the parts work visually together in shape and color.  We will be using Richard Diebenkorn and others for artistic examples.  Rapid course corrections, intuition, and lack of preciousness will be encouraged as well as very intense looking. Includes all oil paint, large stretched canvas, and model fee.  Bring whatever brushes you already own. 

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

“It might be correspondence art’s function to not have meaning. I like the idea of nothingness. I begin with no plan. I face the void.” -Ray Johnson

The US mail is a gift from our founders. It has connected this country for over two centuries.  Now the mail is becoming quaint and rooted in past glory.

But to my mind, the US mail is still relevant and is a way to spread physical objects that have tangibility and realness...  not just ideas and messages like the internet.

This class will concentrate on making mail art postcards designed to be sent.  There will be an emphasis on collage, draw-through and other forms of printmaking including stamping, as well as writing and asemic calligraphy, etc.

Chine collé is the technique of using an etching press to both print and collage onto your paper at the same time seamlessly, with one pass. Experiment with the range of effects that you can achieve by combining printed line art with cut paper.  In this two-day workshop, you will create a copper etching plate, designed with the idea of adding color, pattern and texture to your image using thin pieces of cut paper that are laminated to and printed on in the final image via the etching press. Saturday will be devoted to preparing your raw copper plate, transferring your idea to the plate, mark making and chemically etching the design into the copper.  Sunday you will prepare variety of papers in different colors, patterns and textures to print multiple iterations of your plate, allowing you to get a real feeling for how chine collé can enhance your artwork and expand your printmaking practice. Abstract and representational images both lend themselves well to this technique. No previous print experience is required and copper plates, inks and appropriate paper for experimentation will be provided.

Usually color is taught as 'Color Theory' which involves tediously painting in hundreds of little squares or placing pre-colored papers next to each other. After doing these exercises you still don't know what to do in your real life painting. This workshop is focused on actually using color on your painting and understanding how it works in a way you can use right away. First we will understand how to create and see color using a limited pallette which will teach you how to mix and see subtle color much more effectively. Then, studying particular masters, we will unlock the color harmony in their work so that you can reproduce it in a work of your own. In the end you will have at least two paintings to take home that you can use to find your own individual palette. We will be using oil paint and canvas which is provided for you, please bring your own brushes and palette knives if you have them.

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.

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

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.

Do you get tired of spending lots of money on inferior pre-stretched canvases at the art supply stores? Do you want to paint 60”x72” without spending $400 on a canvas that is not made to last? Making a canvas this size can cost as little as $25 to make yourself. The quality of canvas is much higher and the flexibility you have with priming options is much greater. Come see how to easily make your own supports from small wood panels to large stretched canvas. After you prepare your canvas then you will learn how to paint on it using oil paints. To paint in oil you need mediums. Mediums are what we add to oil paint to make it brushable, or spreadable and come alive with a 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 confusing array of mediums. Making your own oil paint mediums 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. Then try them all out and see how they can make such a huge difference. In addition we will cover Non-Toxic Oil Painting.

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

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.   

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

We will learn about traditional oil mediums to thick clear layers of glossy acrylics; we will try it all.  We pour, brush, scoop, squeegee and soak. Many of the processes are completely unpredictable and surprising. Even if you only plan to paint traditionally this will show you ways to use your materials that you never dreamt of.
