STUDIO TIME

Drawing for Beginners: Your Hand will do What Your Eye Sees

Each class in this series builds upon the last, to develop your ability to really see things and draw them. You will find the class not only improves your work, but enhances your appreciation of art. You will work in pencil, charcoal, pastels, brush ink, pen and watercolor. All supplies will be provided except the following two items, to be brought by each student: 1) a 9 x 12 inch spiral-bound book with paper suitable for pen, pencil and watercolor, and 2) a pocket size sketchbook for daily drawing. See the syllabus for more details. Alice Phalen has a BA and MA in Fine Arts. She has illustrated books and sold and shown her work extensively.

Monoprinting: Painterly Prints without a Press

For beginning and experienced artists alike, this monoprinting class will explore a painterly and versatile form of printmaking which the artist can use to create prints without a press.  The process is fun, spontaneous and low-pressure. We will use small gelatin and Duralar plates and experiment with the use of painting and drawing techniques, stencils and stamps, texturing tools, and various mark-making techniques. Though no two prints are the same, the artist can make a series of related images or experiment with drastically different elements to produce a striking variety of results.  

4 Mondays, 1;00 to 4:00 pm
