VIRTUAL WORKSHOP
Color: a workshop for artists and designers

Feb 15 - 26, 2021

Every Monday, Wednesday & Friday, 1-4PM MST

Concept

Based on David Hornung’s textbook Color: A Workshop for Artists and Designers, this virtual class provides a deeper understanding of color and the confidence to use it in your work. Under expert guidance, students make a sequence of practical studies that reveal color structure, its relational behavior and useful strategies for color harmony. Class time is devoted to illustrated lectures, demonstrations and discussions of class work, facilitated via Zoom video conferencing. Because the class meets intermittently, there is ample time to complete assignments. This informative and relaxed course is an excellent choice for painters, textile artists, graphic designers and anyone who makes two-dimensional art.

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.

Media

All studies are smaller than 11 x 8.5” (letter size) and made with hand painted color swatches that are cut and collaged using glue sticks on card stock. Recommended paint is acrylic gouache (see materials list for specifics). The technique is simple, direct and requires no prior painting experience.

VIRTUAL WORKSHOP: Possibilities in Painting, Drawing & Collage

Yevgeniya Baras

Tuition $595
Code D45W02-21

This project-based, virtual workshop for beginners guides students to making unique and personal works of art while combining painting, drawing and collage. Technical exploration, perception, development of ideas, intuition, invention, representation and communication are at the core of this workshop. We explore different ways of working with acrylic paint and expand on the idea of what painting is by integrating alternative painting materials. Each painting begins with drawing and collaging in order to generate our own sources of inspiration. Technical demonstrations encourage students to boldly explore different approaches to art making and to foster fearlessness when tackling new materials and processes.

Mixed Media Collage

Leslie Shows

Tuition $1,950
Code JANSTU2022D

Join this exciting January intensive workshop to merge photography, painting, collage and digital fabrication technologies. We explore contemporary examples of layered mixed media work and delve into formal as well as technical approaches for combining diverse imagery to create a unique visual language. The class combines structured projects with individually-directed works, one-on-one critiques with the instructor, and group feedback. In addition to working in analog collage and painting processes, students use vector drawings and digital images to create shapes, stencils and image transfers with CNC, laser cutting and digital printing on various substrates. The workshop takes place in the wood loft and makes use of the photography/new media labs as well as the FabLab so that students can explore many possibilities for making dynamic and multilayered imagery. The instructor will be present from 9AM - 12PM each day and students will work independently in the afternoons. Students will have additional access to the Digital Fabrication and Photography & New Media studios during monitor hours on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 7-9PM.
