Two part epoxy resins have come a long way as a creative material. This one day workshop is packed with essentials in how to incorporate resin into your art.  You’ll work with molds, bezels and a variety of colorants and inclusions to explore a range of possibilities. Techniques covered will include how to dome or dip resin pieces and how to include things like dried organics you bring to class. The instructor will demonstrate finishing options so you will know how to finalize your cured work. You will be able to take home your in progress pieces after class or pick them up the next day. All needed materials are provided in class, but it can be meaningful to bring your own special tidbits: dried organics, special papers, small photos, and any small ephemera to use in the resin. 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
