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.

The vinyl cutter is a great point of entry into the world of CNC (?computer numerically controlled?) machinery: like a printer but with cutters rather than ink, it reproduces a computerized design in sticky-backed sheet vinyl. The output can be as straightforward as lettering or as detailed in as photo-based imagery. In this workshop you?ll learn how to operate a desktop vinyl cutter and how to prepare your design for successful cutting, information which will also apply should you choose to work with a commercial cutting service. Samples of stenciled work from various Pratt studios will get you thinking of the many ways in which this new tool can enhance your current practices. Workshop participants will have the option of continuing to use the cutter through Pratt?s Studio Access Program. Prerequisite: none.

Taku-hon (stone rubbing) is one of the most ancient printmaking methods originating from China and Japan almost 2000 years ago was used to create prints of memorial texts, textured and patterned surfaces as well as 'right reading' prints of the carved stone surfaces of scripts in ancient temples. Working with Oaxacan artist Mercedes Lopez you will learn the technique of molding Japanese style paper onto an object and adding ink to the surface. This produces a print image which, when dry, keeps the texture and volume of the object. Both ways of doing Taku-hon: Kantaku (dry process) and Shittaku (wet method). Both will be covered in this workshop. 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

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

Carve a Salish Housepost with Ed Archie NoiseCat. In this class you'll learn how to design and carve a large scale monumental carving. You'll be working on a 2'-4' wet alder log. Ed will teach how to hand carve with traditional tools as well as some power tools. Lots of focus will be given to using a gutter adze (it is advised that you take the tool making class Ed teaches.) Plus chisel and mallet, hook knives, and gouges. Ed's work is inspired by the stories that comprise his life - the people, tricksters, tragedies, and triumphs of the Indigenous experience. Come with some ideas for your Salish Housepost as this class will jump right in on Day #1. ***Plan to spend class time outdoors as often as possible. *** This class will skip the week of Thanksgiving. *** This class will meet in the Youth Studio when inside.***

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.

We will begin by exploring the origins of the Acari lamp traditions as well as current trends in the art of scuptural 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. This is a technique I use 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.
