Open Access Print Studio

Sunday evenings 6.30-9.30pm

September 24 - November 5

Print assistant Ingrid Booz Morejohn

Calling all happy printmakers! We are offering an evening open print studio where printmakers can use our 15” table-top Conrad etching press. Anyone with prior experience of the printmaking is welcome. You are required to bring your own tools, paper and inks and you are responsible for your own cleanup. Rudimentary printmaking supplies are also available (linocutting tools, simple soft brayers, barens and paper-soaking trays are available). Printshop assistant Ingrid Booz Morejohn will be present to collect fees and answer simple questions. Sessions are drop-in and don’t need to be booked in advance (but Ingrid would love it if you sent her an email or text message if you are coming to gage attendance). Technical support is not available during open-access sessions, so if you need training or assistance you will need to book one of our printmaking courses. You use the press at your own risk. Please do not print anything that will damage the press bed, roller or press blankets.

Just drop in at the Art Alliance Studio, 818 Pike Street Lemont, PA! 10$ per session

For the intermediate / experienced watercolor painter who is unfamiliar with painting outdoors, on location, and would like to learn and practice how to paint outdoors, "en plein air". The workshop will cover tools and materials, selecting a dramatic composition, simplifying it, observing the light and shadows and experience how the paper and paint reacts when painting outdoors. We will start and finish both days in the classroom. Lena will paint demos outdoors weather permitting. Students don't have to have tripods/ easels for outdoor painting. The garden has benches and chairs.

The class is limited to 15 students. Bring your own lunch and beverage.

Paint Like A Robot (Mixed Media)

Oct 6, 2017 (one day) Friday, 1-4pm

Instructor -- Isabel Kumerz

The main goal of this workshop is to help you to become more free and expressive, taking risks through experimentation. For this reason it is important not to know what is going to happen. You simply have to follow my instructions blindly, like a robot. This way you will be moving out of your comfort zone and learning how to create new possibilities for your art. This process is helpful to represent motion or movement and repetition. The result is usually a painting/drawing with a twist, unconventional and full of interest.

To sign up, please go online and select Fall 2017 Adult Ed and look for the workshop or call our office at 814-234-2740.

 

Color Theory Workshop

Students will experiment with tools to invent creative color schemes and learn about balancing color in a composition. Demonstrations will be given for all major concepts and individual instruction throughout the class. All experience levels welcome, however prior experience with the paints of your choice are recommended. A list of recommended pigments will be sent at least two weeks prior to class. Students may choose between acrylic, oil, watercolor, or other paints to practice.

Tools will be shared to help visualize the figure, breakdown proportions, and see skeletal and muscular anatomy. Demonstrations will be given for all major concepts and individual instruction throughout the class. All experience levels welcome, however the ability to draw a sphere, cube, and cylinder from imagination is recommended to get the most out of the workshop. A list of recommended materials will be sent at least two weeks prior to class.
