November 12-13, 2016

10 am to 4 pm

Through a progressive series of exercises and paintings, students will explore washes, layering, color, and “light,” and learn to respond quickly and thoughtfully to watercolor's surprises and unpredictabilities.

We will link structure with spontaneity to build a broader working understanding of the medium.

The workshop is open to students at all levels.

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.

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
February 4-5, 2017

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.
