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


Collage is an improvisational medium that provides a wonderful format for experimentation and artistic growth. In this five-day workshop students make hand painted papers to create numerous small collages with an emphasis on experimentation and play. Classroom discussion will center on formal attributes, creative strategies, and the psychological experience of abstract form. The classroom atmosphere is relaxed and supportive with studio work supplemented by demonstrations and slide presentations.



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.

Course Description:


This is the second installment of David Hornung’s color class. It’s for students who have taken his first workshop either online or in person and would like to go deeper into his book Color: A Workshop for Artists and Designers. Color 2 explores the development of color relationships through visual research into natural and manufactured sources. This course also strengthens color mixing skills and perception through specific color applications like tonal progression and the illusion of transparency. Also under scrutiny is the psychological impact of color combinations and the relationship between color and the development of pictorial space.


As with Color 1, classes meet on alternate days (MWF) which allows time in between to complete assignments. The materials list is identical to that of Color 1.

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.

Course Description:


In this relaxed and supportive five-day workshop, we make small scale acrylic paintings that explore an improvisational approach to abstraction. The emphasis is on experimentation and workflow with special focus on the interplay between intention and chance in the creative process. We use various tools and both additive and subtractive processes to generate surprising visual events that can be developed into compelling abstract compositions. Studio work is complemented by slide shows and discussions that examine both historical and contemporary abstract painting. Painters at all levels of experience are welcome to participate. Workshop fee include lunches and some provided supplies.
