Altered View: Staging the Landscape for Painting

Kim Anno painting

This course brings together the practice of painting the landscape with the studio strategy of the still life. Students will use their choice of objects--costumes, photographs, trash, machines, food, etc. to stage various scenes in the landscape in order to create new meanings for their work. Using photography, drawing, and painting activities they will then create source material for their studio paintings. Students are asked to bring a camera, drawing materials, watercolors, and paper to begin. After field trips to several locations, there will be focused studio time to develop studies into larger works, using acrylics or oils. From this course, students will discover a newfound framework from which to make a longer series.

Kim Anno is an internationally exhibited artist with a 23-year painting career. She also creates large format photography and stages experimental video projects around the world. Her work is collected by museums such as the SFMOMA, Honolulu Academy of Fine Art Museum, Oakland Museum, Brooklyn Museum, among many others. She has been awarded a Zellerbach Foundation Fellowship, Open Circle Foundation Fellowship, Fleischacker Foundation Award, James R. Knight Foundation Fellowship, Astraea Foundation Fellowship, and the St. Benedict's Literary Press Artists' Book Fellowship with poet, Anne Carson. She is currently a professor at the California College of the Arts in San Francisco.

Ceramic Sculpture: Integrating Form, Surface, and Content

ceramic sculpture

In this workshop, students will explore spatial relationships in the development of small-scale sculpture. We begin by making plaster molds of simple prototypes. Shared mold use will expand composition options. Through experimentation, as well as careful observation and skill building, students will investigate the integration of form and surface with individual content. Demos, discussions, and work strategies will guide students through slip-casting, clay assembly, glazing, and cone 5 firings. This will be a fast-paced workshop that will complete the cycle from idea to realization. Intermediate or advanced experience in clay is recommended. Students are encouraged to attend an introductory meeting with the instructor two weeks prior to the workshop that will include information about mold making.

Karen Thuesen Massaro is a studio artist working with clay in Santa Cruz, California.

She has taught, curated exhibitions, and written about American Studio Ceramics. Her work has been exhibited and published internationally. Karen's sculptures have evolved from representational to abstract arrangements of forms that support line, pattern and color.

Historic Present: Gum Bichromate Prints from Digital Negatives

digital negatives

Explore exciting processes that mix photography with collage, montage, painting, and drawing. Step back in time to the historical photographic processes of hand made Cyanotype and Gum Bichromate prints. Today's technology of digitally generated negatives expands the possibilities of imagery like never before. These brush applied emulsions will be combined with watercolor or gouache in layers to imbue the photographic image with a delicate or vibrant "painterly' quality. Each technique offers the artist dynamic opportunities for an enormous range of creative and personal expression.

Hedwig M. Heerschop is a Dutch-American photographer who lives and works in Santa Cruz County, California. She completed her Master of Fine Arts in Photography at San Jose State University.

Mix It Up! Crossmedia Screen Printing

screen printing

Surreal relationships, layered imagery, contrasting-yet-integrated styles, type that reads both forward and backward, fundamental "Pop" references.... these are just the beginning. Combine painting, drawing, collage, and transfer images with screen-printing to make prints that might be playful or deadly serious. The course includes an intro to basic photo silkscreen printing, watercolor washes, and image transfers. The subtle melding of these processes with colored pencils, acrylic blends and gouache will be explored and encouraged.

Telling Tales: The Narrative Garment

art garment

Telling tales, conjuring imagery, interpreting clichés, puns, and metaphors will be part of our toolbox as we create visual narratives using garments as a common thread for conveying our stories. Pants, dresses, jumpsuits, hats, shoes, and undergarments are a part of individual and cultural identity, which has a rich history in the art world. Through slides and demonstrations we'll explore ideas and techniques for creating wearable art, sculpture and site specific installations. Put on your thinking cap and come with a spring in your step for this fast paced and exciting dive into the art garment pool.

Off the Panel: Experimental Encaustic

Encaustic

In this 5-day workshop, students will explore encaustic in unconventional ways, working "off the panel" with linear elements such as papers, threads, strings, fiber, and fabric. We'll address 3D forms by constructing elements which can be used as stand-alone sculpture or as multiples for installation. Students will also explore the versatile ways in which encaustic can be transformed: carved, scraped, layered, collaged, dipped, cast, modeled, sculpted, and textured. This workshop is geared for students who have worked in encaustic, are at an intermediate to advanced level, and who want to expand their repertoire. Our plan is to provide a wax laboratory, which will support discovery, direction and exploration.

Wendy Aikin, Judy Stabile, and Daniella Woolf are artists, teachers, and designers working in a variety of media, including their favorite, encaustic. Founders of Wax Works West, a school for the encaustic arts on the central coast, they have taught over 800 students. Among their credits are the instructional DVD Encaustic+Paper, Daniella's books, The Encaustic Studio and Encaustic with a Textile Sensibility, multiple national and international exhibitions as participants and curators, and worldwide teaching assignments. Judy and Daniella were awarded Gail Rich Awards for Artistic Excellence, and Daniella has received the prestigious Rydell Visual Arts Fellowship. In addition to academic degrees earned, all three artists trained in encaustic at R&F Paint in New York. All are active contributors to community arts organizations.
