VIRTUAL WORKSHOP Color: A Workshop for Artists and Designers

Jan 10 - 21, 2022

Monday, Wednesday & Friday, 1-4PM MST

Concept

Based on David Hornung’s textbook Color: A Workshop for Artists and Designers, this class provides a deeper understanding of color and the confidence to use it in your work. Under expert guidance you will make a sequence of practical studies that will 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. 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.

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 stick on card stock. Recommended paint is acrylic gouache (see materials list for specifics). The technique is simple, direct and requires no prior painting experience.

Acrylic: the Scope of Possibilities

Asad Faulwell

Tuition $1,155
Code D0102-22

This workshop develops a variety of acrylic painting techniques ranging from the very precise and geometric to the more spontaneous and organic. Using these techniques, students learn to push their paintings into new and complex territory while also learning to express a strong voice through their work. In addition to the exploration of hard-edge painting, soft dry brush painting and other techniques, participants discover transparency, opacity and a wide array of possibilities in color. Mixed media is also encouraged, either on the surface or embedded in the paint.

Photographic Collage: An Exploration of Photography and Painting

Kate Leonard

Tuition $1,275
Code P0101-22

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.

The Figure in Oil Paint

Julie Burleigh

Tuition $1,155
Code D0203-22

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, we 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, participants 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.
