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. Supply and Model fee $50  Prerequisite: None.

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! Supply fee $20 Prerequisite: None

This class designed for beginners to advanced students in the fundamentals of the Classical Realist technique. This foundation is appropriate for any artist and is designed to give students the knowledge and confidence to become comfortable in using the magnificent medium of oil paint with methods and materials used by the classical masters. We will explore the oil painting techniques and style of realist painting used by artists such as Velasquez and Caravaggio to Bouguereau and Sargent. Develop confidence in using tools and materials, paint mixing and color theory that take the student from the initial sketch through each type of paint layering to the final highlights. Demonstrations in each class help the student gain new insights into using the basic primary color palette, subject development, underpainting and overpainting, thin wash to thick impasto, mixing colors in the correct value and tone as well as how and when to use paint mediums and the fine art of glazing.

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. Saturday Only  Prerequisite: none

You may think doing your painting with the help of a projection is 'cheating'. But did you know there is evidence that even the masters of the Renaissance used projections to start their paintings? Optics revolutionized how we see the world and painting emulated its 'realism' for centuries. Projection can save you hundreds of frustrating hours laying out the groundwork for you painting and it has never been easier or as effective with today's technology. The first half of the class will be showing you how to choose and prepare your digital image. The second half will be how set up your projection and lay it on the canvas. If you would like to follow along with your own laptop and/or digital projector feel free to bring it. This workshop is located offsite at Miller School of Art in Georgetown . ALL SUPPLIES PROVIDED.

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! All materials provided and you get to take home a selection of mediums to try at home. This workshop is located offsite at Miller School of Art in Georgetown . ALL SUPPLIES PROVIDED.

Find out how to put together your own set of non-toxic paints and how to use them in one lesson. You don?t even need to buy materials in advance, just come and see if it they will work for you first.

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.

Work with Mexican artist Miguel Perez at his studio Gráfica Chacala and our own Larry Calkins to create works that combine sketching, print making and journaling, while being inspired by the petroglyphs at Alta Vista. Located in the state of Nayarit, this region was originally home to the largely unstudied Tecoxquin indigenous culture dating from approximately 2000 BC to 2300 BCE. Aside from its cultural and archeological importance, the site remains an important religious center for the Huicholes who leave offerings and perform ceremonies here. Discover this fishermen village and the wonderful people who live in this idyllic location. Tuition includes lodging for seven nights (Saturday to Saturday) giving students a day to explore Chacala before the workshop begins.
