    Composition in Painting -- Kathleen Lanzoni -- 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. Jan 31/Feb 1

    The class will focus on learning about and creating compositions in painting. Pencil drawing and painting with watercolors will be the tools we use to practice compositions and create a final painting.

    Class begins with a discussion and demonstration, then working together, step by step, we get right to work. Students will get individual feedback throughout the two days of class. We will discuss many aspects of compositions with emphasis on enjoying the process of deciding how to create a piece of art that makes you proud.

    The magic of layering
    translucent paint allows the light to shine from the surface, through the colors, to us as
    observers.
    Kathleen paints in a realistic painterly style, bringing the effect of changing light and color that
    describes the atmosphere, context and shape of the scene to the paper. She is an experienced
    instructor, exhibiting in many juried shows and galleries as well as participates around the
    country in Invitational Plein air events.

    Participants will be introduced to wood and paper types, carving tools, inks, brayers, and printing tools used in making woodcut prints.  We will discuss how to store and safely transport paper, ink, tools, and equipment so that they can set up shop in a room in their house, or in an outside location temporarily, in order to make woodcut prints “en plein air” (weather-dependent).  This workshop will be held indoors.

    Woodblocks, ink, paper, and accessories will be supplied, as well as carving tools for use. Participants must bring a sketch or drawing as a reference for the woodcut print to be produced. 

    Along the way, we will discuss sharpening and honing carving tools, the effects of hardness and porosity of wood, mixing oil-based ink to proper consistency, proper application of ink to the woodblock, hand-printing techniques to achieve desired results, and techniques to repair mistakes. We will also briefly discuss multi-block color prints, and color/reduction woodcut prints.

    Instructors: Jennifer Steck and Rodney Buxton

    Many artists love creating work to give away to family members or to raise money for favorite charities, others strictly for personal satisfaction. Every art journey is different. If you've decided that you want to explore taking your art to the next level, this is a good place to start. Jennifer Steck and Rodney Buxton will share their knowledge, success' and failures as they've built their art businesses over the last two years. It takes hard work, persistence, a rhino skin and recognizing and treating your art as a business. While you won't walk away with all the answers because they are still learning, the workshop will give you an overview and you'll leave with an idea on where to begin taking things to the next level.
