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.

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 Highland Park

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.

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 NEW The Miller School of Art in White Center. ALL SUPPLIES INCLUDED. Prerequisite: none

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.

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. This workshop is located offsite at NEW Miller School of Art in White Center ALL SUPPLIES PROVIDED.   Prerequisite: none

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 class you will learn how to prepare and roll out inks of different fluidity properties and pull prints using the viscosity method. You will make textured copper plates through multiple etching stages and various plate making methods. With this technique you will create ways of overlapping and mixing colors in a multitude of variations, opening up infinity of color possibilities. Experienced printmakers are welcome, but no experience is necessary to take this class and walk away with prints of your own.  Prerequisite: Etching experience

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

This class will bring together concrete, a live edge slab, and steel so that you can build your own beautiful mixed media coffee table or end table. No experience needed in any of these medias. Expert furniture makers and instructors Tom Hensheid, Andy Fallat and Steve Dando will help you learn all the skills you need so that you end this class with a completed project (each class session will be staffed with 2 instructors). Come prepared to the first class with ideas on overall size as you will choose your slab and be making concrete forms and pouring concrete right away. From there, you will learn how to weld 1/4" x 3" flat bar stock and make your metal base. The class will then return to the wood studio to work on the wood slab, polish the concrete and then join the two pieces together. Finally, you will learn how to attach the top to the metal base you constructed. You'll complete the class with a one of a kind piece of furniture unique to you. All skill levels are welcome in this class, no prior experience with metal, wood or concrete is needed. Due to the amount of instructions given in the first 3 classes your attendance is mandatory, if you are unable to attend one of those sessions, you'll be dropped from the class with no refund.

The Moravian Stool is a strong lightweight stool that teaches you all the basic steps of chairmaking. This class will be based off of the Christopher Schwarz plans that are rooted in the original stools from eastern Europe and very popular in historic Old Salem in NC. This class will be a mix of learning handtool and machine skills. Students will learn how to make tapered octagons, sliding dovetails, compound splayed legs and wedged through-tenons. You’ll end the class with a simple, elegant stool that has been well engineered to withstand the test of time. No prerequisite. If you already have spindle turning experience, you can turn your legs during class. You will not be taught how to spindle turn in this class. This class is a primer for the first chair class that will be offered in the Wood Studio in the next year.

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.

Learn how to build your own maple skateboard deck using wood 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 mini-cruiser skateboard deck. On day one, you'll work as a team to glue up your veneer stack on pre-made forms in a vacuum bag. 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). 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. This class is designed for one student, 10 years and up, and one accompanying adult (Mom, Dad, Grandma etc.). Space is limited to six groups so sign up early! No experience necessary.
