VIRTUAL WORKSHOP: Color: A Workshop for Artists and Designers

Jan 23 - Feb 3, 2023

M, W, F from 1 – 4PM, MST

Concept

This class is based on Hornung’s textbook, Color: A Workshop for Artists and Designers. It is designed to strengthen your color understanding and make you more confident with color in your studio practice. Under the instructor’s guidance, students make a sequence of practical studies that reveal the structure of color, its behavior in relation to other colors and useful color strategies. Class time is devoted to illustrated lectures, demonstrations, and the discussion of projects. The class meets on alternate days, so there is ample time to complete assignments. This course is an excellent choice for anyone who makes two-dimensional art.

The Figure in Oil Paint

Julie Burleigh

Tuition $1,225
Code D0101-24

In this workshop, students engage in one of the most interesting and challenging pursuits in representational painting: working with the figure. From color mixing exercises to studies of proportion and composition, students learn to represent the figure quickly and convincingly with oil paint. Further emphasis on paint handling and brushwork helps students to become adept at basic oil painting techniques. In addition to painting from a model, students are guided to create engaging and expressive self-portraits. Even with no past experience, students come away from this workshop with a heightened understanding and skill of this popular but often challenging genre.

Painting as Metamorphosis: Observe, Examine, Create

Jody Guralnick

Tuition $1,225
Code D0102-24

This class immerses participants in the wild world around us to inspire the process of oil painting. Students examine nature firsthand, using magnifying loupes to inspect their subjects, contemplating life, growth, decay, and regeneration. Using nature as source material, participants read, discuss, observe, and embark on a painting journey. The emphasis of this workshop is to think about painting as a process and movement rather than a fixed form, depicting nature with paint without needing to reproduce observations in a literal way. Melding abstraction and representation, students discover and produce depth, allowing an image to float to the surface. They learn to develop form, mix color, and consider composition, all inspired by what we see around us.
