Beginning Painting Class
Begins February 13 (Tuesday) or 15 (Thursday)
For beginners or those with expertise wanting to improve their technique, the primary goal is the development of an awareness and appreciation of the visual experience and of the limitless possibilities for making things of beauty and delight. Learning based largely on a conscious amassing of visual experiences and the development of seeing, upon which, eventually, to realize one’s own visual language and visual value judgments.
The material fee includes water-based oil paints, brushes and 3 canvas but participants are free to bring their own “water-based” mediums and materials in lieu of the fee.
This class welcomes all levels of skill in printmaking, from novice to advanced. We will use additive, subtractive and viscosity techniques, adding layers of interest and intrigue to your print as well as your knowledge. The monotype experience allows for a free and experimental way to practice the transfer of ink onto paper.
A monotype is one printed image, which does not have any form of matrix. On the other hand, a monoprint has some form of basic matrix. The process of creating a monoprint or a monotype is the same, but when doing monotypes, the artist works on a clean and unetched plate; with monoprints, however, there is always a pattern or part of an image which is constantly repeated in each print. Artists often use etched plates or some kind of pattern such as lace, leaves, fabric or even rubber gaskets, to add texture. In this case, having a repeated pattern, we have a monoprint.
