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. Pratt Fine Arts Center is proud to offer this FREE opportunity to our Veterans.

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.

Learn to add the color and sparkle of stones to jewelry designs without using a torch! In this class we will focus on cold connections instead of solder. If you are new to setting stones, these techniques are a great introduction. If you’re more experience, cold settings can expand your design repertoire, or give you the option of working in studio that isn't equipped with a torch. Your instructor will guide you through a progression of capturing stones and setting them using tabs, rivets and tension settings. You will learn a variety of riveting styles for different uses and how to properly set them. Although the class focuses on setting cabochons and faceted stones, these techniques can also be used to capture materials that are heat sensitive as well as enameled elements and other found objects. Prerequisite: None. Supply Fee: $35.

*Students will pick up a supply kit from Pratt prior to the first class. Students will need to provide their own handtools based on a shopping list provided (this includes common jewelry tools such as a saw, files, etc, and a few more specialized items for stonesetting). Students receiving Tuition Assistance may request to borrow a tool kit from Pratt. Please register at least one week prior to the class start date to have time for getting tools and supply kits.

In this Beginning/Intermediate painting class, we will learn basic techniques of painting with a concentration on composition, color, and brush techniques. Each week we will look at a different artist's work from European to American and talk about their techniques, aesthetic, and color pallet. Demonstrations will be given on how the works were composed and created. Using this knowledge, you will create your own paintings using the influence of the artist of the week. For example, if we look at Van Gogh's thick brushwork and vivid color, you will make a painting using that pallet and thick brushwork. If we explore the paintings of Jacob Lawrence, we will talk of his smooth surface and use of primary colors, then using objects around your home, you will make your own work.

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 an action packed 'process' with no possibility of staying in your rut if you have one.  You will be provided with a large paper, drawing and painting materials. Absolute beginners are perfect for this class as well as advanced artists.  Supply fee upon registration.  

This workshop is located offsite at The Miller School of Art in White Center.

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! Avoid the art store by making your own oil paint; it is easy. 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. All materials provided  .Supply fee upon registration.

Painting with palette knife is fast-paced, fun and exciting experience that comes with textural qualities and expressive gestural marks. Different from painting with a brush, this process will help you to achieve a variety of effects, from sweeping impasto like strokes to refined details. You will also develop understanding of value structure and color harmony while working with palette knives. Expect a solid work and joy-filled workshop of Acrylic palette knife painting, overflowing with sequential exercises, interesting experiments, and quite a bit of color theory. We will discuss and learn from examples of old and contemporary master painters. The instructor will work with everyone individually throughout the workshop and will paint alongside the students. Expect to go home with tools of a lifetime!

The workshop is for beginning and intermediate students; those who haven’t begun painting and those who want to improve their painting skill.

Painting with an encaustic pen is a quiet meditation on process and discovery. It favors patience and deliberateness. The slow build-up of wax, stroke by stroke, layer upon layer, adding colors bit by bit and carefully mixing them directly on the panel is appealing. 

 This method lends itself especially well to working on a small surface. The encaustic painters of Greece, who developed this process, seldom made pictures larger than the average head. Prerequisite: None

We will be centering imagery and symbolism that reflects growth and healing, all while carving into the natural fibers of the wood material (linocut is ok, too) and transferring the image on to printmaking paper. There is a meditative and thoughtful component to this process that we will be exploring that includes some drawing. (No need to be ‘good at drawing’ to take this course)

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. Supply fee upon registration.  

This workshop is located off site at Miller School of Art in White Center.

Frottage is a surrealist and ‘automatic’ method of creative production that involves creating a rubbing of a textured surface using a pencil or other drawing material.  Frottage or rubbings allows one to reproduce multiple images in a short amount of time and is perfect for collaging. 

‘The collage technique is the systematic exploitation of the accidentally or artificially provoked encounter of two or more foreign realities on a seemingly incongruous level – and the spark of poetry that leaps across the gap as these two realities are brought together.’ 

-max ernst 

You will work on creating collage with paper cuts and repeating those collage images with Frottage. Then combining these graphite or crayon images into a traditional collage format. Prerequisite: None

Immortalize your furry (or scaly or feathery) friend while learning the basics of etching.  At the end of this two day weekend workshop, you will have a working knowledge of how to line etch on a copper plate and print from it and come away with a 6” x 6” portrait of your pet or any animal that you fancy.  Day one will be choosing an image, preparing your plate, transferring the outline of your image onto the plate, making your marks in the hard ground and then, time permitting, etching your plate. For people who don’t feel finished making marks by the end of class time, you may take it home to work on and we will get your plate into the acid first thing on the second day.  The second day will be devoted to preparing your paper, inking and printing your etched plate. Time permitting, we may be able to try a few alternative methods for adding color such as chine collé and we can certainly go over how to add color at home after printing using watercolor or gouache if desired.

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.Supply fee upon registration.

In this class we will build on your acrylic practice, focusing on advanced technique.  The plethora of acrylic mediums can be daunting and expensive, so we will discuss which of them may work for your specific work style and what is unnecessary. We will also talk about concepts behind your work. There will be directed acrylic assignments, but you have the option of working on your own and using the class for feedback. We can work around any supplies you may already have, but please have plenty of titanium white.

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 Miller School of Art in Highland Park

Acrylic is a mystery to many people.  Acrylics are capable of a full variety of beautiful effects. Most people rely on stores that sell very pricey little bottles of modified acrylic.   What many don't realize is that all of these varieties are easily made you in a few minutes with simple additives. In this workshop we will make all 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 take home. Supply fee upon registration.

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.  Supply fee upon registration.

Collage requires no previous experience. But experimentation and practice can make you a pro. Learn from a master collage artist how to elevate the art of cut-and paste out of the tacky scrapbook and into the expressive realm discovered by the original artist inventors of collage in the early 20th Century. Suddenly our intuitive picture-making skills rise to the surface. Collage makes it easy. The images we spontaneously pillage from a hundred throwaway magazine pages help us to illuminate our own stories and dreams. We’ll explore stream-of-consciousness collage composition, while experimenting with basic design and mixed media methods. Step by step, we will use paper, found imagery, and acrylic adhesive. It can be combined with personal photos, drawing, writing, humor, and whatever else fits on the surface. Expect to create one or more fantastic artworks in our two days together, improving your skills as we go, under the friendly tutelage of Deborah Faye Lawrence Seattle’s Queen of Collage!

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 an action packed 'process' with no possibility of staying in your rut if you have one.  You will be provided with a large paper, drawing and painting materials. Absolute beginners are perfect for this class as well as advanced artists.  Supply fee upon registration.

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. Supply fee upon registration.

Now that you've been through the beginning welding and fabrication class, take this opportunity to spend some time honing your MIG skills and discover the wonders of TIG welding. TIG welding gives you the ability to make small, clean welds, with full penetration. The purity of the weld and the surface finish produces a very high-quality weld that is very strong. It also broadens your capability to work with nonferrous metals such as stainless steel, bronze, aluminum, and copper. This skill is used in the high-end fabrication and the bronze casting worlds. TIG brazing and Phos-copper brazing will also be covered. You have a specific project in mind, or you just want to learn new valuable skills, this class will be a great way to expand your interest in metalwork. Prerequisite: Beginning Welding or equivalent.

WARNING: This woodworking class is not your typical "come in, follow an instruction sheet, and learn to make something" offering. This class is about using YOUR design ideas, taking creative risks together, and sculpting them into a custom box. No two boxes in the class will be alike, just like no two people are alike. Is the box serious and sophisticated with figured black walnut and brass accents that belong in a library full of leather bound books and smoking jackets, YES. Is the box whimsical with googly eyes and sharp teeth as if it just walked out of a Tim Burton movie, YES. Is the box modern, minimal, clean, and eclectic where the purpose is almost ambiguous when you look at it, YES. Let's put our egos on hold, and imagine something new and wonderful together, and then build it. Design options might include carving, mixed media such as brass or copper, patterns such as plaid or interesting wood colors combinations, drawing via pyrography, using veneer, highly figured woods, etc. Whatever we have the time and skills to accomplish together over the 3 day class is considered in play. We will help guide you through both the design as well as fine-furniture level execution, showing you proper box construction techniques including grain wrapping, tight miter joint glue up, divider systems, lid design, and finishing. Participants must come with some degree of woodworking skills in place, that is experience with basic woodworking machinery (table saw, jointer, planer) and/or hand tools. Participants should supply the wood for the box they have in mind (plus any additional elements they like). The class instructor, Paul Jasper of Copper Pig Woodworking, will also have some brass and copper included in the price of the class. You can choose to buy a sheet of his classic plaid during the class if desired. Class size will max at 8 students + instructor + teacher assistant to keep the group small due to the highly custom and interactive nature of such a class.

Instructor: Beau Jack. Key

Beau Jack Key, native Hawaiian and carving kumu (teacher) will share the rich tradition of Hawaiian carving, lashing and cordage techniques, while introducing students to the flow of stone carving on a smaller scale for personal adornment. Pieces will allow a dialogue between student and stone to reveal the form that emerges.

Students are welcome to bring their own stones or pick from the stones provided, stones should be larger than jewelry scale, but smaller than traditional sculpture scale. Beau will demonstrate the snag loop technique to lash the stone and will share his knowledge of traditional cord making woven with 4 and 8 strands allowing a strong wearable design to arise. This will be open to all levels of stone carvers and jewelers to explore the possibilities of sculptural body adornment. ***Beau Jack will give a free public lecture on 10/21/21, Thursday evening on Zoom from 6:30-8:00 pm***

Damascus steel, the stuff of ancient legends, is taken one step further in the current way of making it by forge welding layered steel with a hydraulic press. Celeste Tracy has been making Damascus at Pratt for many 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.
