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.   Prerequisite: none

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.

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.

Vitreography is using glass as a plate to create imagery. Glass has the ability to produce bold true colors and can be wiped as an intaglio and/or rolled as a relief plate. You will use diamond tipped scribes and dremel tools as well as hand tools and stencils to create textures, lines and shapes as well as glass etching cream. Glass plates are very easy to ink and wipe and have the ability to hold a lot of ink in each mark and you can seemingly get an infinite number of prints.

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.

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.

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
