NOVEMBER WORKSHOPS

This workshop aims to to teach the art of sketching the human figure.  Gesture drawings are fun and simple to do.  Participants do not need to have prior life drawing experience, just an open mind!   Participants will take turns drawing and posing for short periods of time (30 seconds, 1 minute and 2 minute poses).  Participants will learn how to quickly sketch while exploring different gestures of the (fully clothed) human body.

INTRO TO MONO-printing with water-based inks

Sunday MARCH 20TH 2016, 1PM-5PM

Monoprinting is an incredibly immediate, playful, and multi-faceted type of printmaking, which could be described as a printed painting. Through learning and practicing a variety of transfer techniques, students will establish an understanding of the properties of ink, paper, pressure, and how they interact to create a broad range of aesthetic possibilities. Once the class has explored a variety of approaches, including additive and reductive ways to develop an image, and ink-mixing skills, each student will develop a series of prints exploring a process, a theme, or a narrative.
