Influential art duo CUD (John Drury of Brooklyn, NY and Robbie Miller of Vancouver) return to Seattle and Pratt, to share their unique perspective on 31 years of collaboratively producing art, with glass. Instruction during this hands-on, fast-paced 5-day class includes the non-traditional exploration and experimentation with glass in its characteristic states - cold, warm and hot. Participants will investigate the direct method of glass mosaic, the firing of enamels on to the surface of glass and spend time in the hot shop; as also informed through the presentation of off-beat examples, of the historical incorporation of the material in creative endeavors. No prior experience with glass is necessary, though an appreciation of contemporary art and outside of the box thinking is essential.

This class will be an examination of blown glass sculpting and including colorful cane techniques into your studio practice. I am a big proponent of making parts and using hot glass time wisely. I will be covering many of the techniques that I use in my work; including using solid color cane and making "suppio" (little tubes) for parts. As a class we will work together to design and execute effects, patterns, and forms that use cane and blown glass sculpting together. I want to students to come away from this class with the tools they need to include color and pattern into their work by thinking creatively about cane.

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.

There's so much more to jewelry than silver, gold, and gems. Alternative materials such as plastics play an increasing and exciting part in both the making of jewelry and the finished pieces themselves. If you've ever wanted to 'taste-test' unconventional materials without committing to a full order, this is the class for you. We'll sample our way through a smorgasbord of more than 10 different pastes, putties, and pourables, both commercial and home-made. Learn how these materials expand your options for creating models, molds, and multiples, modifying your tools, or capturing shapes and textures 'in the wild.' Go home with recipes, leftovers, supplier lists, and lots of ideas. Prerequisite: none.

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.

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

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. This workshop is located offsite at The Miller School of Art in Georgetown. ALL SUPPLIES INCLUDED. 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.

Watercolor can be painted realistically or loosely, in this workshop we will be working loosely with the emphasis on design and composition. You will understand how to utilize color and value to punch up your paintings. We will begin by using watercolors, transparent nature, straight out of the tube to build highlights and texture.  Watercolor painting can convey emotions from portraiture to landscapes.  Bold color and mastery of the brush stroke is the key, the less strokes the better.  Whether you are a beginner or an advanced student this workshop will fit your needs.  Prerequisite: None

Instructor: Celeste Tracy

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. Prerequisite: beginning blacksmithing or previous experience. Supply fee: $75

We will begin by exploring the origins of the Akari lamp traditions as well as current trends in the art of sculptural 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. Students will use these techniques 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.

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.
