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.

Explore this versatile printmaking method for transferring images from a photocopy or laser print. The technique uses principles from lithography and can be used to print drawings, photographs, found objects- anything that can be photocopied! We will explore building images through layering, multiple color printing, and printing on both glass and paper. (When printing on glass this technique differs from a decal process in that it results in prints composed of fine glass powder fired onto a glass sheet.) You will create a variety of samples exploring the potentials of the process, including using reactive glasses to widen your color palette. This technique can be used with or without a press.

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.

Workshop: Color Magic With Viscosity Printing Viscosity printing is a process of color separation that combines methods of intaglio and relief inking, and allows multiple colors to be printed simultaneously from a single plate. In this workshop you will learn how to prepare and roll out inks of different fluidity properties, make a collograph plate, and pull prints using the viscosity method. With this method you will create ways of overlapping and mixing colors in a multitude of variations, opening up an infinity of color possibilities. The techniques you will learn in this class can be applied to copper plates as well. Experienced printmakers are welcome, but no experience is necessary to take this class and walk away with prints of your own. Prerequisite: Printmaking experience

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

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.

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.
