Composition Design

within the Classical and Imaginative Realism traditions

With Tenaya Sims

Founder of Georgetown Atelier – Seattle, WA

Painting and Drawing Workshop

In this workshop, you’ll learn the fundamentals of how to create dynamic and balanced compositions in your figurative, environment, and still-life paintings.  We’ll use the techniques of ‘thumbnailing’ and ‘value studies’ to experiment with our compositions within these subjects. We’ll work from the live figure, master copy, still-life, and environment reference, and then learn how to combine source material in order to create imaginative artwork.

Quick Study Saturday’s

Beginning Art Classes

Draw Your Pet! 

with Ginger Cullins

Beginning Drawing 

Saturday May 6, 9:00 – 12:00, Cost: $75

In this class you will learn to sketch your pet from a photo using sight measuring and the gridding method.  Learn drawing basics through Elements of Design.

Travel Collage

with Al Zirkel

Beginning Collage

Saturday May 13, 9:00 – 12:00, Cost: $75

How many times have you taken a trip and saved photos, ticket stubs and other ephemera as souvenirs? Then these items end up in a box or a drawer and are soon forgotten.

This class will help students explore collaging with these small items to create a visual memory of an experience whether it be a trip, family reunion or some other milestone.  

The process will explore layering, use of negative spaces and the relationships of shapes when creating a collage.

Students should bring photos, postcards and other items they feel comfortable cutting up to create a collage memory, and an X-acto Knife.


Assemblage with Wire and Found Objects

with Phyllis Garey

Beginning Assemblage

Saturday May 27, 9:00 – 12:00, Cost: $75

At one time or another we’ve all noticed interesting patterns in the placement of seemingly unrelated objects. This class will allow you the experience of creating an art piece with objects using different types of wire, learning how to manipulate different gauges of wire using needle nosed pliers etc.

All materials will be supplied, but you will want to round up some of your objects from around your house or from that junk drawer you’ve been meaning to go through!
