Collage (From the French: coller, to glue, French pronunciation: ?[k?.la??]) is a technique of an art production, primarily used in the visual arts, where the artwork is made from an assemblage of different forms, thus creating a new whole.

Course description:
In this 4 week course we will use various materials along with the Principles of design and composition to create collages with exciting imagery and dynamic surfaces. These pieces can stand alone or be used as a springboard for the development of future work.

Watercolor Painting

Thursdays

October 16th, 23rd, 30th

November 6th, 13th, 20th

10:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Cost: $195 (not including materials)

Initially we will cover accurate color mixing, then cover my goal to better facilitate the one problem I find most students have trouble mastering: loose, vibrant color washes in controlled areas that retain the brilliance for which watercolor is famous.  I believe this is a key factor in creating a strong, convincing watercolor painting. I will also have excercises designed to help achieve brilliance with glazing techniques and watery washes that promote looseness in a controlledmanner.  I will also introduce a variety of techniques that produce the illusion of textural effects.

guestartistbiograpies/a/edhall.htm)

Week One (November 8):

-Texture and the picture surface: Building up (massing) vertical, horizontal and curved lines to

create value

-Warm-up gestures – straight and curved technique (10 - 20 gestures)

-Long pose: using short, 1” strokes, create 100 (count them) vertical strokes, 100

horizontal strokes, and 100 curved strokes to create texture, value and space (include

edge strokes, wall strokes, floor strokes, etc.). A semi-blind drawing. Blind strokes at

the beginning, curved (looking) strokes at the end.

Week Two (November 15):

-The Figure and it’s Environment: Modeling the figure in Space

-a quick review about finding planes through value observation and setting up your

composition (understanding the importance of squinting to see the large forms)

-Tonal gestures (10-20 gestures) – include objects within the environment

-Review the “big three” tone masses: lights, half-tones and shadows.

-Long pose: With the figure in a corner, and with other elements around her, draw the

entire space she occupies. Include walls, boards, all edges, plugs, lamp, fan – anything

“touching” or intersecting the figure. No more “floating” figures on the page. Include as

many elements as you see to build the space.

Week Three (November 22):

-Building a Four Quadrant Drawing: Emphasizes cross-quadrant connections, i.e. sliding planes,

invented intersections, found connections, sliding values and imaginative use of creating a

unique composition.

-Warm-up gestures with side of charcoal – quickly blocking in value (5-10 gestures)

-Long pose: break your picture plane into (4) quadrants – using 1 long vertical line and

one long horizontal line across your page. Make the quadrants of different sizes and

show the outside edge of you picture plane as well. Each quadrant will be a different

pose, and/or a different part of the figure. Find the connections!

-Final analysis – bringing it all together
