In this class, you will learn the basics of moku-hanga, Japanese woodblock, and explore other variations within the medium. Moku-hanga differs from many techniques for its use of water based ink- and for being printed by hand, without a press. 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. By the end of this workshop you will be able to take this technique and print at home, in an unventilated space and without a press!

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.

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.

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

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 Miller School of Art in Georgetown. ALL SUPPLIES PROVIDED.

Have you ever wanted to see the range of things you can do with your paints? The possibilities will open you up and get you out of any rut. From learning about traditional oil mediums to thick clear layers of glossy acrylics we will try it all. We pour, brush, scoop, squeegee and soak. Many of the processes are completely unpredictable and surprising. Even if you only plan to paint traditionally this will show you ways to use your materials that you never dreamt of.

Learn to create your own chapbooks, small booklets of between 8 and 32 pages with poet Dianne Aprile and Larry Calkins. Dating back to the Renaissance, these charming folded-paper books, inspired by popular culture, are perfect for mixing visual art and written texts. In our workshop, we will write from prompts and exercises to produce fragments of poetry and prose to then blend with paper-collage techniques to make our own individual chapbooks-- sewn by machine or hand, or stapled. Join us to think big in a small way. Prerequisite: None

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 Georgetown. ALL SUPPLIES INCLUDED. Prerequisite: none
