Carousel by Mary McInnis

For anyone who would like to find out more about the medium of soft pastels. McInnis will talk about materials, tools and techniques, and have each student participate in color exercises. Informational handouts will be provided on pastel paper and pastels, which the students will use to explore color mixing and effects, and also to create their own pastel painting. 

 Flag Book by Jessica Hoffman

Create one-of-kind books, using found imagery – such as old magazine and book clippings, and explore low-tech printmaking techniques to create unique patterns and images. This simple structure is a great place to begin exploring book arts and lends itself it well to the incorporation of other 2-d media, such as photography, printmaking, and drawing, and offers a unique way to display images and/or tell a story. 

Fused Glass Pendants by Dolors Rusha

Students will learn techniques on how to make fused glass pendants. They will also gain knowledge on design and the right ways to layer dichroic glass in order to achieve the most vibrant colors. This is a fun and creative experience for both the instructor and the student. Pendants made in class will be taken to the instructor’s studio for firing, and will be available for pick up at the Arts Council office the following week. 

Rasta Man by Patricia Ann Wilson

Participants will be creating collage still lifes from found and fine papers. There will be a discussion on materials; gel medium, brushes, papers (found vs purchased) , scissors, and more. Participants will learn vocabulary including, still life, unity of surface, value, line, abstract, surrealism, cold press, hot press, and archival. There will also be a discussion on getting over fears of creating. Each student artist will come away with a finished collage ready to hang feeling confident and satisfied and having a clear understanding of the style of collage.

River Bend by Kathy Collins

Collins will teach the secrets to exquisitely simple, yet powerful impressionistic watercolor using her technique for rapid-process painting. Students will learn to achieve dramatic high contrast paintings using large brushes, charging in color, and mixing flowing wet paint right on the paper.
