TUNE UP YOUR LANDSCAPES WITH MIKE OTTE Saturday, May 18, 1-4pmSome lecture, some hands-on experimentation, and some critique of original works. Discussion of how the elements of art can be your tools for improving your painting, getting it to say what you want. How to use color to push or pull distance. How shape and size influence how we "see" the subject matter. Hard and soft edges may make all the difference. What is "value" and why is it important? These topics will be discussed.

EXPERIMENTAL DRAWING WITH MICHAEL MCCONNELL Saturday, June 8, 10am-1pm
Through a series of individual and collaborative drawing exercises, participants will explore new ways of thinking, seeing, and creating works of art. Using a range of drawing media, we will explore principles of traditional artistic practice while moving beyond to develop unique approaches to methods, materials and composition. Students will tap into their creativity, intuition, and powers of observation by exploring various ways of seeing, both perceptually and conceptually. While the primary goal is to have fun with the materials and media, we will focus on the process of observing and drawing while developing a personal aesthetic and drawing language.
Potential materials to be used: graphite, charcoal, pastel, ink pen, brush and ink, watercolor pencils, various drawing papers, collage materials.
