July 26-30, 2021
 

Explore the rich medium of oil painting through the subject of still-life while further acquiring the working knowledge of the fundamental principles of working from observation. Through a series of structured studies, we will examine how to analyze space, determine proportional relationships, develop form and structure, as well as, study composition, basic color theory, and the language of visual texture. In addition to the first-hour live introduction via the online Canvas platform each day, there will be an additional one-hour live session from 1-2pm. Students will have 2-3 hours to work on assignments following each presentation, assisted by available feedback from the instructor. Students have the option of taking this class for 1.0 college credit or no credit. International students are welcome!

"Pre-College: Mixed-Media Narrative Art (Online)"
August 2-6, 2021
 

Storytelling is an art form that has been passed down for centuries and in many cultures, the storyteller is highly regarded as being the keepers of history and culture. The stories told, helped people make sense of the world, taught children about their traditions, were entertaining and educational. Storytelling is a huge part of communication and it is something that we all do, even in regular conversation. In this one-week intensive course, you will make an Artist Book using your personal narrative/ story, alternative printmaking techniques and book structure. By combining images and techniques such as packing tape transfers, watercolor monoprint, Geli plate printing, bookbinding and more, you will create an Artist book that fully expresses the intent of your narrative.
