2017 Spring & Summer Workshop Schedule
Impressionist Painting en Plein Air
En plein air is a French expression meaning “in the open air” which is a term used to describe the act of painting outdoors. Experience painting the landscape outdoors in natural light, just as the Impressionist artists did in the 19th Century. The workshop will be held at beautiful Lions Park located in Niskayuna. With its charming restored turn-of-the-century train depot, and breathtaking views of the Mohawk River this beautiful park is the perfect setting for students to paint the natural landscape because it includes several views that make you feel like you are in an actual impressionist painting! All art materials are included in price and may incorporate acrylic paint and watercolors.
Printmaking I, II & III
$150 each session
Printmaking is the process of making artworks by printing. It involves the creation of a master plate from which multiple images are made. There are many types of printmaking. This workshop series will focus on Relief Printing (the process of printing from a raised surface where the non image areas have been cut away) using a Linocut, Screenprinting (the process of adhering a stencil over a mesh screen material stretched tightly over a frame) using fabric, and a squeegee, and Monotype Prints (the process of painting an image onto a smooth surface and then transferring to paper) using glass/plexiglass and a printing press. Discover the art of printmaking as we discuss the tools, materials and process involved in pulling proofs. Students will walk away with a series of prints from their own original designs. All art materials are included in price. Workshop will be split into three different sessions: Session I : Relief Printing with Linocuts, Session II : Screenprinting, and Session III : Monotype Printing
Glass fusing is the technique used to join glass pieces together by partly melting the glass at high temperature. The fusion process requires multiple pieces of glass, with a minimum of two. The heating is commonly undertaken in an electric kiln. More info to come on this exciting workshop!
