Drawing FundamentalsWhen: Thursdays, Mar 12, 19, 26, Apr 2 / 6-8 pm
Instructor: Stephen Herchak
Cost: Member $140 / Non-member $170
Regardless of your preferred media, learn to create compositions more easily with improved confidence in your ability to record what you see. Course will stress accurate three-dimensional depiction of objects and space through understanding fundamentals principals of perspective, proportion and value (shading). All levels welcome. High school through adult.
Course time will be split evenly between demonstrating methods for measuring angles of edges of objects, alignment of components in a composition, and proportions between objects, and then students putting them into practice.
For people who’ve taken the class before,we will introduce weight and sharpness/softness of line and value as ways to create additional space and depth, in addition to linear perspective.
Intro to Screen PrintingWhen: Tuesdays, Mar 17, 24, 31, Apr 7 / 6 - 9 pm
Instructor: Todd Anderson
Cost: Member $175 / Non-member $210
This four-week class is a hands-on continuation of the screenprinting fundamentals covered in the One Night Workshop with instructor/artist Todd Anderson! All materials are provided–but you’re welcome to bring your own special inks, t-shirts, hoodies, or whatever you can think of to print on.
Students will learn both theoretical and practical basics of screenprinting–design theory, how to prepare a screen for printing, the many different effects you can achieve with ink colors–Redux uses only water-based inks, so they are non-toxic and safe for the user and much better for the environment. But be prepared to get messy!
This more in-depth class will allow students to complete a project of their own during the class sessions.
Camera Obscura: Made in the DarkWhen: Saturday, April 25 | 10 am - 5 pm
Instructor: Jessika Stocker
Cost: Member $85 | Non-member $100
Made in the Dark will explore the question, what is a photograph? We will explore pre-camera tools, like camera obscuras and pinhole cameras, to dive deeper into photography and vision in its most basic form. Students will learn the principals behind both, learn how to make their own pinhole cameras, and make drawings from the camera obscuras and pinhole images, in the darkroom.
No experience required, and students ages 14 + are welcome. There will be an hour and half break for lunch–bring your own or head to King Street for a bite!
