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.

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

This intensive painting workshop will focus on the representation of the human form using a simple palette structure to create complex flesh tones. With examples from art history to guide us, we will use a limited selection of primary, warm, and cool colors on tinted and white grounds to create the nuanced color relationships that we see on a live model. The class is an excellent introduction to figure painting, but the challenge of structuring flesh tones using warm and cool colors is an excellent foundation for future study in painting, whether or not the figure remains your primary focus in the future. Students should have some experience with paint to take this class. Students may use oil or acrylic paint in this class, but oil paint is recommended.

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.

Mysteries of Acrylic Acrylic is a mystery to many people. To make the full variety of beautiful effects acrylic is capable of many rely on acrylic workshops in stores that sell very pricey little bottles of modified acrylic. 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. This workshop is located offsite at Miller School of Art in Georgetown . ALL SUPPLIES PROVIDED.  $50 supply fee  Saturday Only Prerequisite: none

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.
