NEW WORKSHOP STITCHERY AS ART with Carol Dixon

From First Dynasty Egyptian embroidery to the Bayeux Tapestry, molas, Chinese Ming Dynasty squares, American quilts and samplers to my own contemporary embroidered collages, stichery has been a recognized form of fine art. This workshop allows you to create your own art using embroidery thread or wool on felt, burlap, or canvas backings. You will be free to incorporate other media, attaching fabrics, papers, or found objects and adding any color media of your choice. Historical and current examples of stitchery as art, technique demon- strations, aesthetic considerations and ample time to create your own stitched art are included in this five-hour workshop. It is suggested that participants bring along a bag lunch. Workshop held in GAS gallery, 2nd floor.

TUESDAYS:
PAINTING ESSENTIALS and LEARNING TO SEE with Sam Morrow

For students who are true beginners and those who consider themselves experienced beginners. Incorporating fundamental painting ideas while painting from life, our goal in this class is to explore the technical qualities of both oil and water-based oil paints; learning to construct value scales; color mixing and basic color theory. Learning to develop individual visual perception through painting from still-life is a key component while applying prerequisite technical skills – the use of paint and respective mediums, the use of different brushes and other tools and basic ideas on how to begin a painting.

WEDNESDAYS:

THE CRAFT OF PAINTING and YOUR PERSONAL VISION-with Anna Patalano Section 1 Mornings

This highly technical course focuses on development of painting techniques in oil, water-based oil, and acrylics while forming your personal vision. We will use your favorite photos as the basis for figurative, landscape, or still life ideas. This is not a class in photo-realism. The class will emphasize fundamental concerns of the craft of painting — understanding color theory and paint mixing, painting tools, surfaces and supports, toned grounds, and the various techniques of impasto, glazing, wet-into-wet, and final varnishes. Basic ideas on how to begin a painting using drawing techniques for transferring the image from the photo to the canvas will be demonstrated. Students should have some basic training in painting as a prerequisite.

THURSDAYS:
PORTRAIT & FIGURE -THE COMPLETE DRAWING & PAINTING TOOLBOX with EDDIE NINO

This course is designed for both the beginner and advanced student interested in learning the ins and outs of painting and drawing from life. Short one day portrait poses will keep the student’s chops and fluidity rolling, while long figure poses will concentrate on the student’s ability to calmly study and observe the model. Every week there will be a mini-lecture on a specific topic such as: value relationships, perspective, color, composition, likeness, or past or ontemporary artists. “It’s all about teaching the student how to see nature so that he or she can then express his or her inner-self and personal vision. The student will constantly be challenged and therefore think outside the box!”

PROCESS PAINTING: MASTER CLASS IN CONTEMPORARY ISSUES with Anna Patalano

For advanced painting students with emphasis on individual process. Using ideas of abstract and non-objective painting, students will learn how to deconstruct traditional subjects such as the figure, landscape, and still life to create completely unique and personal visual images. For those who are more adventurous, delving into completely non-objective imagery is also an option based on elements of color, form, and space to structure the image. Different painting materials, mediums, tools, and techniques will be stressed. Collaborative critique of class work is an integral part of the course as well as trips to major exhibitions in NYC.
