VIRTUAL WORKSHOP Reinventing the Still Life in Painting, Printmaking & Collage

Jul 5 - 9, 2021

Monday, Wednesday & Friday, 9-10:30AM & 1-4PM MST

Concept

Discover how to take ordinary still life paintings to the next level in this virtual, mixed-media painting class. Taking inspiration from contemporary artists whose exciting work fits into the still life genre, we then set up our own compositions, filling our paintings with meaning, wonder, pattern, form and color. The class focuses on experimenting with abstract mark-making as well as representational imagery. We discover different ways to use acrylic and delve into collage and printmaking techniques such as pochoir, stencils, and trace monotype to create new and surprising marks.

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.

Gel Plate Printing and Collage

Holly Hughes

Tuition $1,155
Code D1120-22

This course introduces students to the joy and versatility of gel plate monotype, a low-tech, inventive, forgiving printing method that offers portability as well as kitchen-table convenience. Students make finished prints and experiment with imagery and motifs for other artistic practices such as ceramics and painting. The course also explores an invisible collage technique to combine works on paper into a larger format. Simple tools like brayers, rubber-tipped clay shapers, brushes and cut-paper stencils provide sophisticated results, build up layers and add complexity. Slow-drying paints produce vibrant color, texture and transparency with easy clean-up.

Expressing the Subconscious in Drawing

William Downs

Tuition $1,155
Code D1121-22

Automatic drawing is a process whereby one enters into an altered state of consciousness to explore the worldview of an artist through the medium of the hands. Gesture drawing is one example. Using automatic drawing, an individual can connect with and channel the sensibilities of artists such as Picasso or Cézanne. Each class begins with a lecture and demo on artists and techniques to be explored. Students learn the automatic drawing process and how to merge it with a multitude of media and mixed media.
