Pronto Plate Lithography

Members $180

Pronto Plate Lithography is a technique you will want to have in your arsenal as it can reproduce a variety of images both hand-drawn and painterly, or photo-based.  Pronto Plates operate on the antipathy between oil and water and are fairly simple to master and relatively inexpensive.  In this printmaking class you will learn how to create images using simple materials such as ball point pen, acrylic floor wax, sharpie, crayon and, if desired, laser copies of photo-based imagery. The plates can be cut and/or layered to create multi-colored prints.  Over the course of the class students will also explore a variety of additional processes including hand-coloring, water color transfer and chine colle. This is a great class for beginners and professional artists alike interested in learning a new and extremely versatile technique. Participants should expect to create a portfolio of completed prints.

Students who plan on using photo-based imagery should contact the instructor in advance.

Incorporating the written language into your artwork
from 120.00

Incorporating the written language into your artwork
Robert Dorr
Tuesdays 6pm - 8pm
September 19th - October 10th
Members $120
NonMembers $140

Incorporating text/writing in your artwork adds a personal dimension to the piece. Even using a text from a book, your personality comes through the writing. Art journals, using a combination of watercolor washes, found objects, and personal journaling have become a popular way of working one’s art practice into one’s daily life. Nothing encourages the muse as much as giving her attention every day.  
The class will cover at least 4 different ways of using text in art.
1. Text as a geometric, or all over, surface. Calligraphy using materials other than ink will be covered.
2. Text as a background to work your own ideas over. This will be self-portrait (loosely defined) worked over text that you choose. It could be a type of journal, or significant poetry
3. Text as a way to add interest to shadows, or add detail in a watercolor.
4. Text used in pottery. I’ll be using the inspiration of potters like Jane Kauffman, and the Sumerians. (We may, or may not be able to fire the pieces. It depends on the pottery schedule)
Some of the materials you will be using are acrylic paints and mediums, graphite, chalk, and charcoal, watercolors, colored pencils, markers and possibly wheat paste. Please dress for the possibility of getting messy.

With the right guidance, the humble sketchbook can easily become a doorway to a
world beyond your imagination. Of course professional artists have used sketchbooks for centuries to dash off a quick sketch or make a plan for a future masterpiece.  This same tool can be used for an even greater purpose: to sharpen your eyesight, open your heart, and provide a guaranteed road to joy and confidence.  
This class welcomes true beginners as well as those who are already comfortable with art supplies. In this two-hour workshop you will:
- learn the back-story to a vibrant new movement called “Sketchbook Skool”
- explore the work of contemporary sketchbook masters from around the
   world
- watch a brief demo, then join in to create sketchbook pages that will loosen up your style and your thinking

With any luck, this could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship between you, your sketchbook, and the beautiful world surrounding us.
