with Marjorie Strauss
Here's a chance to work on some basics of color and paint mixing, observing still life, photographs, self-portraits, and one or two model sessions. We will do color exercises with a limited palette, simplify shapes and explore materials; brushes, palette knife, white & tinted grounds, and flat or canvas surfaces. A list of acrylic supplies is available when you register.
Block Printing - Intro
with Ken Gross
Block printing is a simple and direct art, with simple materials and stunning results. We will try several different materials for blocks, including linoleum blocks, soft-cut blocks, and simple styrofoam blocks. We will discuss design considerations, carving tools and techniques, safety, inking, printing, and paper. There will be plenty of class time to work on completing and printing a block. Most learning will happen by doing! A list of student-grade printing blocks is available when you register.
