Collage with Encaustic Medium : Judith Hoyt

with Kaitlin Patterson of Mountain Books
Learn how to make a text block to create a notebook or sketchbook followed by learning how to make a book cover for your creation, or replace a worn out cover for an old favorite book. Students who took Sewing A Book should bring their textblock. Other students can bring either an old book they wish to fix, or a notebook they would like to make a new cover for.
Color Experience with Tom Sarrantonio
November 16, 10:30-2pm
This workshop will explore Color through hands-on experience and experimentation, using acrylic paints to create small color studies. Workshop emphasis will be on developing a personal color sense through color-mixing and awareness of the infinite variety and mutability of color. Discussion and demonstration of the limitations of Color Theory will help free the individual from reliance on arbitrary rules concerning color practice.
Monoprint with Lara Giordano
November 23, 10:00am-2:00pm
Work with a wide variety of monoprint techniques that build on drawing, painting and the use of stencils. Students will create one of a kind images that can stand on their own or be used later in a mixed media process. Discover how you can create unique, painterly prints in a matter of hours. Monoprints are one-of-a-kind prints that are the most flexible and least intimidating of all the printmaking processes. A monoprint can be a beautiful print on its own or used as inspiration for mixed media work later.
