The Ancient Techniques of Painting Icons on Wood: Wed, 6 - 9 pm
In this course students of all levels of artistic skills will create egg-tempera paintings by exploring forgotten medieval techniques of making Byzantine icons. We will learn how to apply Gold leaf on handcrafted wood-panels and mix pigments with home-made emulsion and gesso. We will also learn how and why these ancient artistic methods influenced contemporary art and visual culture. For this reason, Byzantine art theory of color, drawing, and composition will be used to discover a new artistic medium and mode seeing images for creative self-expression. This will be done first via a series of exercises to understand the steps of painting exemplary Byzantine icons. In following this historical art form, students will paint next a “personal icon” on a wood-panel based on images and visual composition of their choice.

Black and White Linocut Workshop: Intro-inter: July, Mon-Fri, 9 am - 4 pm
Register Linocut printmaking is an exercise in thinking and being able to express oneself in black and white through lines, marks and textures.
As a traditional technique the linographic print is the visual result of research where formal innovations give contemporary values.
The original print made from linocut is an effort in structuring and subtraction where the possibility of experimentation has the same importance as in the fields of painting and drawing. Therefore it is very important to point out to the students the importance of the contemporary sense of relief printmaking.

Linoleum is an alternative, malleable and accessible material that gives printmaking the concept of the original print as an independent means of artistic expression.

This course will be offered in English, Spanish and French.
