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.

Gel Plate Printing and Collage

Holly Hughes

Tuition $1,155
Code D1120-22

This course introduces students to the joy and versatility of gel plate monotype, a low-tech, inventive, forgiving printing method that offers portability as well as kitchen-table convenience. Students make finished prints and experiment with imagery and motifs for other artistic practices such as ceramics and painting. The course also explores an invisible collage technique to combine works on paper into a larger format. Simple tools like brayers, rubber-tipped clay shapers, brushes and cut-paper stencils provide sophisticated results, build up layers and add complexity. Slow-drying paints produce vibrant color, texture and transparency with easy clean-up.

Expressing the Subconscious in Drawing

William Downs

Tuition $1,155
Code D1121-22

Automatic drawing is a process whereby one enters into an altered state of consciousness to explore the worldview of an artist through the medium of the hands. Gesture drawing is one example. Using automatic drawing, an individual can connect with and channel the sensibilities of artists such as Picasso or Cézanne. Each class begins with a lecture and demo on artists and techniques to be explored. Students learn the automatic drawing process and how to merge it with a multitude of media and mixed media.
