The Art Complex Museum recently installed a new printing press in its Alden Studio! We invite all who are interested to join us for a printmaking lab, instructed by Sally Dean Mello and Kyle Turner. With instruction, participants will produce two editions of original handmade prints, in both linocut (relief) and drypoint (intaglio) processes. Participants are expected to leave with a number of original prints, in addition to hopefully leaving with new found skills, appreciation and understanding in regards to printmaking.

This will be a relaxed studio class that is open to all levels, experienced artists and beginners alike. Participation fee will include 6 classes over an 8 week period. All necessary materials will be supplied, with the exception of paper, which will be available to purchase from the studio instructors. Students should bring a design to the first class.

Handmade prints are great for gifts, greeting cards and, most of all, a format to exercise creativity and expression! We hope to see you there!

Laura Tryon Jennings Oil Painting Classes


Workshop


Artist Laura Jennings approaches teaching with each student individually, so they can paint freely, at their own level, and paint a subject (landscape, still life, portrait, abstract, interior, etc. from life and/or from a photograph) befitting their skills and needs. She talks with each new student before taking their first class to get a feel for what he or she would like to accomplish. This enables her to help guide his or her own unique creative strategies. For each session there is an optional assignment or challenge for those students who would like more direction and/or to discover a new technique. Often the class works on diverse paintings with a few participating in the assignment/challenge. Each session focuses on learning the basics of oil painting materials, foundations of color theory, color mixing, composition, and critique. Class can also be used to learn helpful tips and techniques to help promote your art professionally. The classes are sprinkled with beginners, intermediates, and beyond students. Each class contains a relaxed, supportive, and encouraging atmosphere enabling the student to find a distinctive pathway to oil painting. All supplies will be provided or bring your own supplies if you prefer.

Please make sure when registering for classes that you provide your preferred email address and phone number. Make-up classes will be scheduled by the instructor only in the event they are cancelled due to weather or if the instructor cancels. No refunds will be made after one week of classes. Classes cannot be pro-rated.

Fee: $198 (plus $28 supply fee)
