Incisive Discussions: Critique Seminar      Register
With Julie Graham

Class 1: Everyone will present their work, and their individual goals/expectations for the class.

Classes 2-6: Every week a few class members will present their work to the class for a critique that will last approximately an hour. Each student will present their work twice during the 8 weeks.

Starts Tuesday, March 31 2015

10:00 am to 12:30 pm

Six Sessions: $450

Maximum 8 participants

Acclaimed educator and artist Julie Graham is brilliant when it comes to evaluating your artwork and helping you to discuss it incisively.

Challenge yourself to grow as an artist. Use this seminar series to “see” your work through other eyes, and to develop goals for progress. Test ideas on the group, practice speaking about your work, and develop a coherent artist’s statement. This seminar is equivalent to a graduate level class.

Julie Graham will suggest source material, readings, specific works to visit in museums, and references to contemporary art practice.

Drawing Marathon: Jump Start the New Year      Register
With Bill Flynn

Saturday, April 11, 2015

10 am to 6 pm

$100 per day

This is a chance to revive the tradition of Drawing Marathon and to work with legendary drawing teacher Bill Flynn. He describes the experience as follows:

The principle of a marathon is to create ideas, not finished work. The goal is to go beyond what you already know by using the energy of the group to surpass your normal limits and push into another realm that allows the unconscious to be come visible. Once you become very familiar with the subject, boredom sets in and it demands change. It then becomes easy to exaggerate and distort, letting the physical act of drawing create it’s own accidental metaphors. Trusting in the process and not trying to control it brings many interesting illusions to the surface. There is always a moment when you are about to give up and something unexpected happens out of your frustration and it is just magical! That is creativity, be there to recognize it.

Everyone should bring 3 objects to make an interesting communal set up, at least one of them should be good sized. Come with lots of paper, 18”x 24”, and whatever materials you like to work with, plus some unfamiliar — bring enough. Think about the artists that move you most, invite them along.

Investigate the World: Ways of Seeing      Register
Melita Morales and Haley MacKeil

Tuesday, April 21, 2015

10:30 am to 12:00 pm

Tuition: FREE

Workshop for Children and Adults, All Ages

How do scientists and artists use their observation skills to “see” the world differently? Come handle, measure, weigh, and draw specimens and examine artwork to unlock hidden meanings from systems of categorization.

We will also look at examples of artwork from different periods to discuss the infinite variety of artistic interpretations beyond traditional classifications.

This interactive event utilizes extensive specimen collections from the Rhode Island School of Design Nature Lab and takes place in the studios of Maud Morgan Arts.

Printmaking Alive/Figure Drawing      Register
An intensive day of drawing and printing from a live model

Materials:

Inks will be supplied, and paper will be available for purchase.

Assistance:

Some basic instruction will be available.

 


Sunday, May 17, 2015

10 am to 4 pm
$75 / workshop day / materials included

Maximum 6

This workshop was so successful that it will be offered as a regular option several times each season.

Open to artists who have enough printmaking skills to work independently, this is conceived as an opportunity to combine figure drawing and printmaking in an intense day-long workshop.

It takes place in the beautiful print and drawing studios at Maud Morgan Arts. There will be a press assistant to help with technical issues so that you can concentrate on making images and exploring the transformative processes of transfers and printing.

A live model poses as participants work with ink in both subtractive and additive manners, in color and tonally. A press assistant will help with the actual printing process so minimal experience is necessary. Surprises are sure to happen.
