Instructor: Francisco Garcia-Guevara

Learn the techniques behind an historic style of Mexican jewelry in one of Mexico’s most beautiful cities. A seam of silver runs through Guanajuato’s bedrock, history, and culture. Rich mineral deposits led to the city’s founding in the 16th century and a massive silver vein discovered in 1750 funded many of the stunning Baroque buildings that have earned it recognition as a UNESCO World Heritage site.

That opulence is also reflected in Guanajuato’s personal adornments. Our class will focus on a distinctively baroque style developed during Guanajuato’s colonial period. For joyería pajarito or “little bird jewelry,” “ …brooches and earrings are built up on several planes…the surfaces all naturalistically tooled and all held together with wire tendrils. On this flowery mass a small bird perches, its wings incrusted with turquoise and its eye a ruby-red stone…The floral design is then riveted to an architectural framework of scrolls and broken curves with tear shaped drops” (Mary L. Davis, Mexican Jewelry).

Our instructor Francisco García-Guevara is a master jeweler who learned the style from his own father. Students will work in silver to creative a pendant with several layers and elements, experiencing sandcasting, die-stamping, chasing, engraving, patination, and soldering.

We’ll attend class each weekday until 2pm, then break for lunch and sightseeing, including a group tour one afternoon after class. Our hotel for the week is a restored 18th-century house just minutes from the studio. From this central location it’s easy to enjoy Guanajuato’s renowned music, theater, restaurants, and winding cobblestone streets. Prerequisite: Some silver soldering experience.

Please note: Guanajuato is extremely hilly. This trip is not appropriate for travelers who have difficulty climbing stairs or walking distances over uneven terrain.

OPTIONAL: For an additional fee, students may add on a tool making workshop on Sunday, February 2; details will be sent upon registration for Study Abroad: Pajarito Jewelry.

Amber is the fossilized sap of ancient trees, transformed over time into a uniquely beautiful gemstone. Lightweight and workable, amber been shaped into jewelry, sculpture, and practical objects for thousands of years. We’ll delve into the world of amber in Chiapas, Mexico’s southernmost state and prominent amber-producing region. In addition to learning how to carve and polish raw amber, we’ll learn how to distinguish real from fake and come to appreciate amber’s importance to the local culture and economy.

Our class will take place in San Cristóbal de las Casas, a beautiful 16th century colonial city regarded as the cultural capital of Chiapas. We’ll stay a short walk from our studio at the famous Casa Na Bolom, a cultural center, museum, and hotel dedicated to the preservation of indigenous arts and knowledge. Na Bolom is on the edge of San Cristóbal’s walkable downtown, where you can enjoy museums, churches, markets, marimba music, and a wide range of delicious restaurants.

We will work with locally-sourced amber and study with Antonio Ramírez Jardines, a nationally known master carver and amber ambassador. You may carve complete objects such as pendants or beads, or create items that you will wish to set in metal after you return home. Class will take place Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Monday, and Tuesday. We’ll study each day until 2pm, then break for lunch and sightseeing. Our free day on Sunday is an opportunity to visit the weekly markets in several nearby villages noted for their indigenous traditions and textile arts.

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 Highland Park ALL SUPPLIES INCLUDED. 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.

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 make your own canvas take it home to paint on!

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.

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.

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.

Learn the ancient 'lost wax' casting process. First, you'll learn basic moldmaking to duplicate a design in wax. This wax copy is then 'invested' in a plaster and sand mixture. Then the wax will be burned out of the plaster, leaving a void to be filled with bronze. Finally, finish your bronze and color it through 'chasing' and 'patination' techniques. All materials except the cost of bronze are included in supply fee. Prerequisite: None Supply Fee $115

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.

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.

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.

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.

If you can afford to pay a little (or a lot) more, you can help us make fantastic art learning experiences accessible to youth in need. Sliding Scale Pricing Options: $20, $50, $100, $180
