September 9 - Introduction to Soft Pastels with Mary McInnis
For anyone who would like to find out more about the medium of soft pastels. McInnis will talk about materials, tools and techniques, and have each student participate in color exercises. Informational handouts will be provided on pastel paper and pastels which the students will use to explore color mixing and effects, and also to create their own pastel painting.
September 23 - Book Arts with Jessica Hoffman
This workshop will teach you how to make the kinetic and sculptural Flag Book, designed by Hedi Kyle. You will create one-of-kind books, using found imagery such as old magazine and book clippings, and explore low-tech printmaking techniques to create unique patterns and images. This simple structure is a great place to begin exploring book arts and lends itself it well to the incorporation of other 2-d media, such as photography, printmaking, and drawing, and offers a unique way to display images and/or tell a story. In this workshop, you will also gain an understanding of basic book binding principles and techniques.
October 7 - Fused Glass Pendants with Dolors Ruscha
Students will learn techniques on how to make fused glass pendants. They will also gain knowledge on design and the right ways to layer dichroic glass in order to achieve the most vibrant colors. This is a fun and creative experience for both the instructor and the student. Finished pendents will be taken back to the teacher's studio for firing and then can be picked up the following week from the Arts Council Office.
October 21 - Paper Collage with Jan Clem
Collage is a French word meaning "to glue." Participants in this workshop will be gluing ephemera, and a variety of papers to "paint" a picture that tells a story. There will be a discussion of materials, and participants will learn collage vocabulary including The Rule of Thirds, texture, value, line and learn how to use the collage material. To get over fears of creating, we will build a background, mid-ground and a foreground. Each participant will come away with a display-ready collage and an understanding of the style and fun of collage.
November 4 - Watercolor with Kathy Collins
Collins will teach the secrets to exquisitely simple, yet powerful impressionistic watercolor using her technique for rapid-process painting. Students will learn to achieve dramatic high contrast paintings using large brushes, charging in color, and mixing flowing wet paint right on the paper. Kathy's award-winning paintings have been featured in Watercolor Artist Magazine, The Artist's Magazine, the Splash series, and 100 Artists of the Northwest. She is a Signature Member of the Northwest and Montana Watercolor Societies and Women Painters of Washington.
