VIRTUAL WORKSHOP Color 2: A Workshop for Artists and Designers Continued

Apr 18 - 29, 2022

Monday, Wednesday & Friday, 1-4PM MST

Concept

This second installment of David Hornung’s color class is for students who have taken his first workshop and would like to go deeper. In Color 2 we explore the development of color interrelationships through a variety of mixing strategies and conduct color research into natural and manufactured sources. We also examine specific color applications like progression and the illusion of transparency and study the way color works with shape to create spatial hierarchy in a two-dimensional image. As with the previous class, meetings are on alternate days (MWF) which allows ample time to complete assignments. The materials list is identical to that of Color 1, linked below.

The prerequisite for this workshop is David Hornung’s class, Color: A Workshop for Artists and Designers, click here for details.

Photographic Collage: A Painterly Approach

Kate Leonard

Tuition $1,400
Code JANSTU2023P

Join us for an engaging exploration of the artistic synthesis between two distinct art forms: photography and painting. The workshop takes a truly hybrid approach as it is designed for painters interested in incorporating photographic imagery and photographers interested in the physicality of painterly manipulation. Discover transfer techniques that integrate photographic images and text directly onto stained surfaces, resulting in intriguingly complex works. Using traditional collage combined with digital transfers to explore 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. While the workshop introduces a variety of techniques, emphasis is placed on the unique conceptual power of collage and montage imagery and end of week critiques refocus participants on the expressive and narrative elements of the artworks produced. While the workshop is designed to accommodate all skill levels, students with some experience in digital photography workflow are able to maximize the variety of techniques explored in the workshop.
