Drawing Marathon: Jump Start      Register
With Bill Flynn

Sunday, October 4, 2015

10 am to 6 pm

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.

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, October 25, 2015

10 am to 4 pm

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.

Sitting, trace monotype, monotype, 11.75” x 17.75"

Sunday, October 18, 2015

10 am to 1 pm &
2 pm to 6 pm

This is a rare opportunity to work with one of the 2015 Spirit Award Honorees, Peik Larsen. Transfer, or Trace Mnonotype, is a spontaneous and exploratory drawing technique that introduces the surprise and forceful dimension of printmaking into the drawing process. Peik Larsen, for many years on the faculty of Harvard, is a master of this process and will bring out the best in your creative process.

Closing reception and Gallery talk with Professor Prashant Sharma
Thursday, October 1, 5:00pm, followed by reception at 5:30pm

Saturday and Sunday
October 24-25, 2015

9 am to 5 pm

This two day intensive workshop is designed for artists with an interest in science and scientists with an interest in art.  By merging the creative process with the scientific method, participants will form collaborative groups and be guided through brainstorming sessions, idea development and visual exploration in a playful, incubator style, studio-lab environment.  This hands-on, cross disciplinary exchange will generate a plethora of prototypes, rough and ready mock-ups, and be a catalyst for ongoing multidisciplinary projects.

Students should bring to class:

A laptop or tablet (if you have one)
Sketchpad and drawing tools
Science related material of interest (ie. magazines, clippings, books, ideas)

Painting Light: A Watercolor Workshop     Register
With Joel Janowitz

Saturday and Sunday
November 7-8, 2015

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.
