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.

Photographic Collage: an exploration of photography & painting

Kate Leonard

Tuition $1,155
Code P0101-21

Join an engaging exploration of the synthesis between two distinct art forms: photography and painting. Students discover transfer techniques that integrate photographic images and text directly onto painted surfaces, resulting in intriguingly layered works. Participants explore traditional collage and photomontage as well as master new 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. The workshop emphasizes experimentation and exploratory approaches. Students produce a portfolio of physical examples of all techniques. A SECOND SESSION OF THIS WORKSHOP IS AVAILABLE FROM AUGUST 9-13. CLICK HERE TO REGISTER
