VIRTUAL WORKSHOP
Possibilities in Painting, Drawing & Collage

Aug 30 - Sep 3, 2021

1PM-4PM MST

Concept

This virtual, project-based workshop for artists of all levels 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. Students 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, facilitated via video-conferencing software, will encourage students to boldly explore different approaches to art making and to foster fearlessness when tackling new materials and processes.

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.

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.

Code D0103-24

Make your imagery pop in this dynamic painting workshop open to all skill levels. Students are challenged to dive into acrylic on panel while embarking on an abstract approach to image making. Participants explore color theory, patterning methods, and how to use masking tape to create clean, sharp lines and angles. We investigate abstraction and find personal ways to create shape, consider composition and develop a sense of space. Emphasis is placed on hard/soft edge painting techniques and layering processes. Students are encouraged to let their creativity flow, while expanding their artistic techniques in this versatile and accessible painting medium.
