FULL: Painting Resource (B): Intro-adv, Wed, 6:30 - 9:30 pm
This stimulating course, in its tenth year, is getting more popular. This experience is for those who are at a turning point of their painting culture. You already know the great principles of colours, shapes, perspective, and you are at ease in your medium, may it be oil, acrylic, or watercolour; and if you are not, it is not important. But it seems that is always the notion of content which seems to interfere with your creativity; the three “Cs”: content, concept, context. What should I paint? Where should I go? Why I am repeating? Why am I imitating? Where is my creativity? In brief, how can I become authentic as an emerging artist? It is within this framework that we will try, together, to answer these questions, crucial to art making.

Lithography: Intro-inter, Wed, 1 - 4 pm
Lithography is a planographic printmaking technique that does not depend on the relief of the printmaking block.

Contemporary Printmaking, Intro-inter: Mon, 6:30 - 9:30 pm
Register Contemporary printmaking is a class for all levels of expertise. The main goal is to learn the fundaments of printmaking, from technique to appreciation in an open and welcoming environment. The class works as an open studio allowing the students to work in their own pace and allowing me to work one on one. The techniques to be explored are Relief printmaking, (woodcuts and linocuts), drypoint and introduction to etching and aquatint, and for more advanced students, intro to lithography.

This class is great for beginners in printmaking as well as experienced printmaking artists with non-typical ideas or people interested in pop art.
The idea of the class is to integrate printmaking techniques and qualities in your personal work. Unlike other print classes, this course is more focused on the aesthetic and visual possibilities of printmaking, and not the “hard rules”. This class is not about what you can't do but is about all the different approaches of printmaking techniques.

Printmaking with Electro-Etching Techniques, Intro-adv: Tues, 6:30 - 9:30 pm
Register Electro-etching is by no means a new invention! It dates back to the early 19th century and has received renewed interest in recent years, especially with the rise of safer, more environmentally sound printmaking practices. This course introduces the artist to an alternative technique of intaglio etching, using processes of electro-etching with copper plates instead of using traditional acids. Participants will have the opportunity to explore these processes and apply these techniques to their own work. No previous experience of printmaking is required.

The Ancient Technique of Icon Painting II, Intro: Wed, 6:30 - 9:30 pm
Register 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 homemade 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 and lectures to understand the steps of painting exemplary Byzantine icons. In following this historical art form, students will paint next a contemporary “personal icon” on a wood-panel based on images and visual composition of their chose.

The Buddha was a real person who lived in India in the 6th century BCE.  Today, the post-WWII period, a number of contemporary North American artists credit the importance of their travels and studies of Japanese culture (both Buddhism and Kami-no-michi) in their own development as artists--what some call "finding Buddha-mind."  These artists include:  Lucy Arai, Robin Campbell, John Goodyear, Isamu Noguchi, Norman Takeuchi, and Krzystof Wodiczko, among others.  In six classes we look further at these influences.
