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.

The Figure in Oil Paint

Julie Burleigh

Tuition $1,225

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.
