When: Thursdays, Oct. 15, 22, 29, Nov. 12, 2015 / 6-8 pm
Instructor: Stephen Herchak
Cost: Member $150 / Non-member $180

Figure drawing is one of the most important, fundamental skills in your artistic practice. This class is an introduction to the basics of the human face and form, applying the techniques of proportion, relationship and scale for a fundamental understanding of drawing the figure, head and face from life. This is for people who want to know how to draw a person and make it actually look like one. For the artist who thinks “My people always look so clunky when I draw figures so I shy away from depicting them at all,” or “it makes me nervous when I have to draw a person.”

We will work from clothed, live models for three weeks, then create self-portraits during the fourth and final session. Appropriate for high school ages and up; all skill levels welcome.

Instructor: Marge Luttrell
Cost: Member $250 / Non-member $295

This encaustic class will cover the spectrum of basic skills and delve into some things you might not have tried. We will cover the general safety and set up that you need to know to get started. How to prepare your wax, tools you will need and how to use them and sub-straits and surfaces. I will go over the general types of encaustic in the market but also teach you how to make your own with oil colors and dry pigments. As a teacher, I like to inspire you to find your own way in encaustics, but if you are at the beginning stages, I have assignments that will give you that push you need. I will go over special techniques, such as flocking, pastels, inks, transfers (I have a fool-proof method) and shellac. I will also bring my hot box so that you can try mono-printing and working with wax and paper. It’s my new love and I think you will really like it too. To sum it up, we will have a wonderful weekend, no fear – just fun and a lot of new skills and information to go home with.

About the Instructor:
Marge Luttrell has been a mixed media artist and educator for the last thirty years. Eight years ago she took a class to learn about a new/old medium (encaustic) that was having a renaissance. It was the beginning of a love affair that shows no sign of ever ending. Marge teaches workshops at schools like Penland School of Crafts (N.C.), Arrowmont ( Tn.), Peter’s Valley (N.J.), and Touchstone (Penn). She is the recipient of a Fulbright Grant, a National Endowment for the Arts grant to study at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and one in the humanities to study in Italy. She exhibits throughout the country at Art Festivals and is in many collections and museums.
Marge resides in Knoxville. She is married to a very patient and helpful man who helps load the car and waves as she heads out on another road trip… and also feeds the cats when she’s gone. Life is good.
