Solar Plate Etching & What to Do With It
with Debbie Little-Wilson

lifeisacircus (002)

This workshop will start with the technique of Solar Plate Etching. For some it will be a refresher and to some it will be learning the basics. It is not necessary to know how to do this. It is easy to learn and a useful method to know.

And then what to do with your Solar Plate. A solar plate etching can stand on it’s own. But it is also fun to incorporate chine colle’ or collage items. Solar Plates can be used in combination with other plates, wood or linoleum block, monoprint or etching or collagraph. This can be accomplished by printing the plates at once or registering the plates on the printing bed to create a multiple plate print. The purpose of this workshop is to explore this technique and see how it can fit into your style so that you can have another tool in your tool box to express what you want to say. Learning the technique is general but how it can be used will be tailored to each individual artist. And as always, the object is to have fun along the way.

(Tues. – Thurs.) March 26 – 28, 2019 (9:00am to 4:00pm)

Tuition: $225 for HCAF Members & $245 for Non-Members

Vibrant Acrylic Painting with Dyan Newton

newtonacrylic

Throughout Dyan’s forty year career, she has developed her own impressionistic style of painting, recognizable by her lively brushwork and bright, vivid colors.  Her workshops are for beginners, intermediate and advanced painters.  She prefers to teach in a relaxed atmosphere as she shares her style and technique of painting.

Students learn how to create energy in their paintings, obtain strong values, and how to use expressive, fresh, clean brushstrokes, while not being overworked. She will start a painting and then let the students “catch up” with plenty of individual instruction.  She feels this helps the student not have that “lost” feeling after watching an instructor complete a 2-hour demo and then say “ok, now it’s your turn.”  If they prefer, students can bring their own photos to work from.

(Thurs. – Sat.) April 25 – 27, 2019 (9am to 4pm)

Tuition: $250 for HCAF Members & $295 for Non-Members

Pocketsketching with Kath Macaulay

Clocktower Chautauqua

Learn enough to play for a lifetime!

This is the perfect technique for travel journaling, hiking, biking, sauntering, sitting in a café or the airport.  Capture what you think you see in 25 minutes or less using a water soluble pen, a 4 x 6 inch pad of paper and a small paint set.  Ideal for the timid beginner to paint fearlessly in public, and the advanced artist who wants minimal equipment, total portability, speed, no interruptions and no clean-up.   New is adding a Micron pen.

Workshop includes several of the watercolor techniques of John Singer Sargent, and uses photos of his watercolors extensively as teaching examples. From a former student at Canyon Ranch, “You just changed my life:  I can do this!”

(Fri. – Sun.) May 10 – 12, 2019

Tuition: $250 HCAF Members & $270 for Non-Members
Plus an additional $45 supply fee payable to the instructor.

Vivid Watercolors with Dyan Newton

newtonwatercolor

Dyan’s workshops are for beginners, intermediate and advanced painters.  She prefers to teach in a relaxed atmosphere as she shares her style and technique of painting. Students learn how to create energy in their paintings, preserve the whites of their paper, obtain strong values, and how to use expressive, fresh, clean brushstrokes, while not being overworked.

Dyan goes over how to mix transparent watercolors to create vibrancy, how to get in and get out, and keep the paintings looking spontaneous and fresh.  She will start a painting and then let the students “catch up” with plenty of individual instruction.  She feels this helps the student not have that “lost” feeling after watching an instructor complete a 2-hour demo and then say “ok, now it’s your turn.”  If they prefer, students can bring their own photos to work from.

(Thurs. – Sat.) May 16 – 18, 2019 (9am-4pm)

Tuition: $250 for HCAF Members & $295 for Non-Members
