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


Saturday and Sunday
January 23-24, 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
February 6-7, 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.

Drawing Marathon: Jump Start      Register
With Bill Flynn

Saturday, February 20, 2016

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!
