Ceramics Summer Series      Register

Six weeks on Wednesdays:
August 10 to September 14, 2016

The summer is what you make it!

Students can focus on throwing and trimming on the wheel as well as hand-building construction processes such as coils, slabs, and pinching.

This class will offer participants personalized instruction to develop their skills creating artwork in clay. Students will benefit from building and throwing demonstrations as well as instruction on decorative and finishing techniques using various glazing combinations.

We will provide inspiration, information, and encouragement for our artists to establish a voice and style for their ceramic work.

All levels of ceramics experience welcome.

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.

All in One / All at Once: Printmaking and Drawing      Register
With Bob Siegelman

Saturday and Sunday
October 15-16, 2016

10 am to 4 pm

Come explore printmaking as a drawing medium. With a nude model as the observational focus, work directly and spontaneously on printing plates with an "all in one" approach and simple monotype techniques that seamlessly integrate printmaking and drawing.

This will be an intensive, fun workshop in a supportive and encouraging environment. Be prepared for challenges, and surprises. No experience in printmaking, figurative work, or drawing is necessary.

Robert Siegelman teaches at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, works with artists privately, and leads workshops and classes throughout New England. His work is in many important collections including the Boston Public Library, MIT, The Harvard University Art Museums, The DeCordova Museum, The Leslie + Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art in New York City, and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Siegelman’s work has been exhibited and published internationally. He is included in the book “100 Boston Artists” by Chawky Frenn, and “Self Portraits by Others” organized by Hunter O’Hanian.

Painting Light: A Watercolor Workshop     Register
With Joel Janowitz

Saturday and Sunday
November 12-13, 2016

10 am to 4 pm

Explore strategies for painting with the challenging medium of watercolor with acclaimed teacher and Guggenheim recipient Joel Janowitz.

This workshop will explore strategies for painting with the challenging medium of watercolor. We will focus on a variety of working methods and on increasing understanding of how transparent washes can be layered both to create a full range of light and dark and to adjust color as one works. We will also stay open to the playful, quick and spontaneous potentials of the medium. Students will paint primarily from observation.

Beginning to advanced.

Screenprinting Intensive Weekend      Register
With Boriana Kantcheva

Saturday and Sunday
November 19-20, 2016

10 am to 4 pm

In this intensive workshop, students will be introduced to silkscreen basics. We will examine different ways of making a screen. We will employ traditional screen-printing techniques such as stencils and the use of drawing fluid and screen filler. In addition, students will be introduced to photo emulsion and the appropriate ways to generate film positives.

Silkscreen is one of the most versatile printmaking processes. Students will be encouraged to print on a variety of materials from paper to wood panels, Plexiglas, cloth and canvas. We will use Speedball Acrylic inks.

Bring ideas, drawings and photographs and see how they can be transformed and enriched by the screen printing process.
