WATERCOLOR IMPROVERS’ SUMMER WORKSHOP SERIES

Join us this summer in this new and exciting watercolor series. Each day-long workshop will explore a unique take on watercolor through exploration of artists and their distinctive styles. Sessions can be taken a la carte and do not build from one to another. We’ll start at 9:00 AM and break for lunch and then come back and work through until 5:00 PM. 

To better imitate the artists’ media, we recommend a starter gouache set. Gouache is an opaque watercolor. All hues can be mixed from the three primary colors of red, blue, and yellow plus white and black. We recommend buying Winsor and Newton, M. Graham, Holbein, or Marie’s brand. All can be purchased online.

As part of the Improvers’ series, these workshops are not aimed at experts; however, familiarity with painting is necessary. Participants of these workshops should have a level of experience at least equivalent to a 12-week beginning series.

Watercolor Improvers’ Series: Geometry in Motion with Paul Cezanne & Charles Demuth
CRN: 10162-181
7/21/18
$75 | Register by: 7/14/18

Cezanne is well known for his striking use of color and shapes, and he is celebrated as THE premiere proto-cubist and father to the cubist movement in western art. Charles Demuth, a distinguished 20th century American Artist, interlaced geometric shapes into every piece of his work. Learn about both of the artists and how each interpreted his scenes into striking shapes using various techniques.

This workshop is intended to broaden your scope as an artist. As such, we will emulate the artists’ styles while not copying any of their pieces. If you have photos of still life, architectural or landscape scenes or any subject with intriguing shapes, bring them to the workshop. Please also bring your own watercolor supplies—paints, paper, brushes, etc. 


Watercolor Improvers’ Series: Rejected Impressionists, Berthe Morisot & Claude Monet

In 1874 it was said that the Impressionists consisted of "five or six lunatics, of which one is a woman.” Berthe Morisot had exhibited her work in the Salon de Paris for a decade prior, but soon after that remark she led the "rejected" Impressionists (Cézanne, Degas, Monet, Pissarro, Renoir, and Sisley) in the first of their own exhibitions. Because she was a woman, her delicate style is not as well-known as the others, but in fact she was an important leader in the world of Impressionism. In this workshop you will learn about Morisot’s fascinating history and her intriguing artistic endeavors while comparing her work and experiences with Claude Monet, who is perhaps the most recognized Impressionist.

This workshop is intended to broaden your scope as an artist. As such, we will emulate the artists’ styles while not copying any of their pieces. If you have favorite photos of landscape scenes, please bring them to the workshop. Please also bring your own watercolor supplies—paints, paper, brushes, etc. To better imitate the artists’ media, we also recommend a starter gouache set.

From the Eye to the Easel
Nature has a simple way of putting things together, and once you learn her tricks, you have a way of understanding any creative project you will want to tackle. For the beginning painter, the first thing you learn is to let the brush do the work for you. Painting is a right-brain activity, and once you get in the zone, your blood pressure drops, and the painting practically paints itself. See supply list below.

Come practice this age-old art by crafting open-cut pendants, rings, earrings, chains and bracelets, and setting semiprecious stones. We will begin with the basics, but this class will still be interesting and fun for those with experience in metalworking. We will learn soldering, sawing, sanding, polishing, chasing, forming, and tool usage, and then build our skill and confidence through a series of projects: a simple pendant, chain, ring or bracelet. From there you’ll be able to branch out into your own interests. This class sold out quickly last fall—sign up early to reserve your spot!

Experiencing Zen Buddhism: An Introduction to the Basics
“Zen” has become a shorthand term for zoning out in some blissful state, but in fact this rich, centuries-old practice is not at all aimed at getting us to escape from our lives. Instead, it offers the opportunity to see reality more clearly by becoming intimate with our own moment-by-moment experience. We’ll explore what Zen Buddhism is really all about, beginning with the central ideas of Buddhism itself and moving on to the teachings and practices particular to its Zen form. Class will include instruction in sitting practice (zazen) and walking practice (kinhin) as well as plenty of time for questions and discussion. All faith traditions welcome.
