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.

A one-time opportunity to learn from visiting artist and Seattle Metals Guild Symposium presenter Tanya Crane. Enameling is an ancient process where powdered glass is fused to metal. In this workshop, we will move past these limitations and push the boundaries of surface decoration by using screenprints to add texture and pattern to your pieces. In a low cost set-up, students will expose their own patterns onto pre-emulsified screens in class and mix a water-based solution with fine enamels to use for printing onto pre-fired enamel. The patterns and drawings you choose are limitless and students will take away many samples. Prior enameling experience is helpful, but all levels are welcome.

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.

Cloisonné left the grandma zone long ago--ancient techniques have gone contemporary! Using flat fine silver or copper wire to create design elements takes basic enameling techniques to a new level. You will learn how to form, apply, and finish cloisonné designs in your kiln-fired enamel pieces and how best to use colored enamels in the cells they form. This technique also lends itself to beautiful shading of colors with transparent enamels, and this process will be covered in detail during class. You will use silver and copper cloisonné wire and have plenty of time to work on multiple pieces during this workshop. Pratt's extensive inventory of opaque and transparent enamels are all available to you during class! Previous enameling experience is very helpful but not required.

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  Offsite at NEW Miller School of Art in WHite Center

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.

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

Moku-hanga differs from many techniques for its use of water based ink- and for being printed by hand, without a press. In this class you will start by using water based ink, but also explore the possibilities of printing by hand in the traditional style while using western oil-based inks instead. By the end of this workshop you will be able to take this technique and print at home, in an unventilated space and without a press! Supply fee $25 Prerequisite: None

Workshop: Color Magic With Viscosity Printing Viscosity printing is a process of color separation that combines methods of intaglio and relief inking, and allows multiple colors to be printed simultaneously from a single plate. In this workshop you will learn how to prepare and roll out inks of different fluidity properties, make a collograph plate, and pull prints using the viscosity method. With this method you will create ways of overlapping and mixing colors in a multitude of variations, opening up an infinity of color possibilities. The techniques you will learn in this class can be applied to copper plates as well. Experienced printmakers are welcome, but no experience is necessary to take this class and walk away with prints of your own. 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.

Mysteries of Acrylic Acrylic is a mystery to many people. To make the full variety of beautiful effects acrylic is capable of many rely on acrylic workshops in stores that sell very pricey little bottles of modified acrylic. What many don't realize is that all of these varieties are easily made yourself in a few minutes through simple additives. In this workshop we will make all the commercially available materials and give you time to play with them. Every student will come away with $150 worth of acrylic paints in a full spectrum of colors and various mediums to alter them with.

**Edit new class dates*** 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 youth room.

Use hybrid woodworking techniques to make a bow saw. A bow saw is used to make curved or straight cuts. If you don't have room for a bandsaw in your shop then a bow saw can make all of the same types of cuts. Pratt will provide one blade for the saw, in the class you will learn how easy it is to convert a bandsaw blade into a bow saw blade = thus you'll have endless adaptations for your bow saw. Your saw will fit roughly an 18" blade. This saw will fit perfectly into a Dutch Tool Box.

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 3-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 a pair of boxes. 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.

Exploration and free play in art is essential for self-expression and problem solving. In this class our young explorers get to spend time with a variety of art materials to draw, paint, sculpt, tinker and put things together, mainly focusing on exploring the materials at hand and creating intuitively in the process. The class will be tailored around each child's interest and the materials they pick. There might not always be a finished end product at the end of class, but open ended art projects are about the process and the learning that happens with it. This class is designed for one student between 3 - 5, and one accompanying adult (Mom, Dad, Grandma etc.). Space is limited so sign up early! No experience necessary, all materials included.
