    Faculty

    Lindsey Yeager

    Studio Coordinator of Paint and Printmaking

    Fueled by a need to find closure in a deteriorating world, Wisconsin-born Lindsey Yeager paints and illustrates connections between society and nature, between human and animal, translating and reframing human contexts into fearful, raw, and feral allegories. Lindsey received a BFA in New Studio Practice and Illustration from Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design in 2021 and she went on to win two Society of Illustrators awards and participate in the 2021-22 cycle of Plum Blossom Initiative’s Bridge Work residency. Her work has been shown at Var Gallery, Mana Contemporary, Soft Times Gallery, Museum of Wisconsin Art, and Society of Illustrators, among others. Lindsey is represented by Var Gallery in Milwaukee.

    Master Class: The Business of Art Making

    Mickalene Thomas, Jasmine Wahi

    Tuition $1,500
    Code D0408-24

    Although many programs exist to refine the technical skills of emerging artists, few aim to enrich their practice with the professional guidance essential to the success of their careers. From navigating relationships with potential gallerists to fostering the acumen to dissect legal jargon, this workshop aims to provide a fundamental basis for an artist’s longevity. Although the course takes place in the painting building, artists of all disciplines are invited to apply. Portfolios will be accepted on a rolling basis. Instructions on how to submit your portfolio are as follows: Submit digital images of your work in one single PDF (as opposed to individual JPG attachments) via email directly to Lindsey Yeager, Studio Coordinator of Painting, Drawing & Printmaking, at [email protected] The single PDF must be less than 10 MB to be considered. Include 5-10 images of your work with image identification that lists the title, media, dimensions and year of each image. While not required, it is helpful to see an artist statement addressing the images you send. Include “Advanced Portfolio Review” in the subject line of your email, as well as the title of the workshop for which you are applying. Please provide a phone number where you can be reached and a link to your website. Submissions that do not follow the requested directions will not be reviewed. If you are accepted, a deposit of $650 will be required within one week of notification of acceptance to hold your place. Housing will be assigned on a space-available basis upon enrollment.

    Acrylic Painting for Teens

    Lindsey Yeager

    Tuition $650
    Code D0410-24

    In this introductory-level painting workshop for teens, students learn to approach painting through a variety of lenses, from observational to stylized, and embark upon many exercises relating to color, line, and form. Students begin by focusing on painting from observation and learning to record what they see, then open up to abstraction, pattern, and developing color fields. We take inspiration from paintings throughout history, gaining a knowledge of historical works and taking a look at contemporary imagery. Teens come away with a portfolio of paintings to build upon in the future.

    Obstructions and Layers: Merging Drawing, Painting and Transfer Techniques

    Andy Van Dinh

    Tuition $1,225
    Code D0409-24

    This class explores the ways in which the combination of drawing, painting, methods for transferring images, and developing layered imagery can ignite artistic practice and evoke personal perceptions, resulting in complex narratives. In this mixed media workshop, students are encouraged to experiment with many surfaces, processes, and ways to display or present their work. Demonstrations include graphite transfers, trace monotypes, techniques for joining materials, and painting/drawing onto non-traditional surfaces. Students engage in daily demonstrations, one-on-one and group feedback, and the introduction of work by contemporary artists working in mixed media.
