VIRTUAL WORKSHOP
Coding for Artists with p5.js

Jan 11 - 13, 2021

9-11AM & 1-4PM MST

Concept

This three-day online workshop introduces the basics of coding through creating visual media. Morning tutorial sessions will introduce new ideas through examples. Afternoon sessions are dedicated to individual studio time and one-on-one discussions with Ari. This workshop is created for total beginners with code and will introduce the fundamentals in detail. We’ll create a new project each day as we cover the coding basics of statements, variables, and conditionals. All examples and projects will be created with p5.js, a free, open-source coding environment created for visual artists. Learn more about p5.js at p5js.org.

This workshop meets via Zoom Video Conferencing software (download free from Zoom.com). An Anderson Ranch staff member co-teaches the class and coordinates the online platform. Further details will be emailed to registrants.

Photographic Collage: A Painterly Approach

Kate Leonard

Tuition $1,400
Code JANSTU2023P

Join us for an engaging exploration of the artistic synthesis between two distinct art forms: photography and painting. The workshop takes a truly hybrid approach as it is designed for painters interested in incorporating photographic imagery and photographers interested in the physicality of painterly manipulation. Discover transfer techniques that integrate photographic images and text directly onto stained surfaces, resulting in intriguingly complex works. Using traditional collage combined with digital transfers to explore methods that allow for opaque and translucent layers. Reductive methods such as sanding and scraping reveal the history of earlier photographic layers and suggest an archaeological approach to image development. While the workshop introduces a variety of techniques, emphasis is placed on the unique conceptual power of collage and montage imagery and end of week critiques refocus participants on the expressive and narrative elements of the artworks produced. While the workshop is designed to accommodate all skill levels, students with some experience in digital photography workflow are able to maximize the variety of techniques explored in the workshop.
