Course Description:


Based on my 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. With guidance you will make a sequence of practical studies that reveal color structure, its inter-relational nature and useful strategies for color harmony. Zoom time is devoted to illustrated lectures, demonstrations and discussions of class work. Class meets for six, three-hour sessions on alternate days (MWF), the off-days are reserved for work sessions. 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.

Course Description:


In this class students explore design by making collages using colored papers with a variety of simple techniques. Work is modest in size (under 8 x 11) to facilitate productivity. The course begins with a few simple assignments and then transitions to greater individual independence. Students work at their own pace to produce a series of color studies in a supportive studio atmosphere with technical help, thoughtful discussion, and individual critique.

Collage can be practiced as an art form in and of itself, or as a wonderful 'playing field' for experimentation and growth. Its improvisational nature promotes surprise and leads away from familiar, relied-upon studio habits. This workshop is for artists at all levels of experience to come together in a supportive working environment for four days of relaxed exploration. Participants make many small collages using painted and found papers. Studio work is supplemented by slide presentations and discussions.



THERE ARE STILL OPENINGS ON THIS ROSTER


Course Description:


In this class students explore design by making collages using painted and found papers with a variety of simple techniques. Work is modest in size (under 8 x 11) to facilitate productivity. Each student pursues their own design sensibility at their own pace. The goal is to produce a body of work in a supportive studio atmosphere with technical help, thoughtful discussion, and critique.


Classes meet from 3-6 Eastern Time on MWF.

Course Description (Elements of Design I):

 

For anyone working in two dimensions the fundamental elements of design are

always in play. Artists and designers rely upon line, shape, interval, balance, relative scale, pattern and the development of visual space to communicate their vision. This workshop is an enriched version of the classic two-dimensional design curriculum that has been a foundational study for artists and designers since its introduction at the Bauhaus in the 1920’s.

 

In Fundamentals of Design and Composition you will make a number of small, focused studies using creative strategies to explore the elements of design with cut paper collage. Throughout the workshop, you will organize your studies and notes into a book/portfolio that serves as both a record of your exploration and a useful design reference for your own studio practice. Classroom work will be augmented by slide presentations and discussion. Recommended for textile artists, designers and painters.      

 

 

 Course Description (Elements of Design and Composition II):

 

In Elements of Design and Composition II students will explore the design principles introduced in Elements of Design and Composition I in greater depth and with the introduction of color. Specific exercises will be assigned but, over the course of the week, they will gradually be replaced by self-directed studies that will help students bring the workshop experience into line with their own sensibility. As in the preceding week, classroom work will be augmented by slide presentations and discussion.



Course Description:


Based on David Hornung’s textbook Color: A Workshop for Artists and Designers, this workshop is designed to give students a deeper understanding of color and the confidence to use it in their art practice. Step by step, through a series of small, carefully guided assignments the class will explore the structure and inter-relational nature of color. Students get to know color essentials through illustrated lectures, demonstrations, and the clear discussion of class work. This informative and relaxed course is an excellent choice for painters, quilters, surface designers, graphic designers, and anyone who makes two-dimensional art. 

Approaching Design Through Collage

In this two-day workshop participants explore design concepts by making collages using colored papers, and simple techniques. Work is modest in size (under 8 x 11) to facilitate productivity. The instructor provides a supportive studio atmosphere with technical help and thoughtful critique. Slide presentations of examples and design discussion augment studio work. 



Course Description


In this relaxed, supportive workshop students make small scale acrylic paintings that explore the language of abstract painting through improvisation. The emphasis is on experimentation and workflow with a focus on process over product. Using a variety of tools, such as, knives, brushes, and blotting and scraping materials, students are encouraged to discover visual surprises that can be developed into compelling abstract compositions. Studio work is complemented by slides shows and discussions that examine historical and contemporary abstract painting.



Course Description:


Whether used as studies for larger works, or as an ongoing design activity that parallels quit making, or even as an art form in its own right, collage can sharpen the eye and challenge the mind. Throughout this workshop, students pursue their own visual instincts to produce numerous collages with one on one coaching from the instructor. Studio production is augmented by slide shows of historic and contemporary art and related concepts. Classroom "walkaround" discussions of ongoing work foster mutual awareness and the exchange of ideas. Although we begin with painted paper, students are free to use any collage material including found paper, cloth, photographic images, translucent or printed papers, and so on. This immersive workshop supports free experimentation, risk taking and embracing the surprising and unfamiliar.



Course Description:


This workshop is for anyone who feels the need for a concentrated course in 2D design fundamentals applicable to painting, illustration, graphic design, and quilt making practice. In this four-day curriculum, students make a series of small studies that examine basic design principles. Assignments focus upon the special character of shape and contour, the development of figure/ground awareness, the use of limited color, composition, and the impact of relative scale. All studies are made in cut paper collage: no painting. Studio work is augmented by slide presentations and discussion. Based on a course I developed at the Rhode Island School of Design, this course unfolds in a relaxed, supportive atmosphere.
