In this one day workshop, students will learn how to create an image on an intaglio plate using a process called "drypoint." Students are encouraged to bring drawings and doodles that they can draw directly or transfer to the plate. The drawing is then incised into the plate, and printed using an intaglio press. Non-toxic, water based inks will be used, and use of a small kitchen device will be shown (or pasta press) so that students could work on this type of project at home. No previous experience necessary. / The class will have a one-hour lunch break.

Most require several observational drawings, or drawings made from what we see, rather than from our imagination or a photograph. This studio drawing class is designed to help motivated visual arts students develop exemplary observational drawings for their portfolios.

For a century, poster art has been used effectively for commerce, propaganda, protest, image, and personal expression. This course will focus on two particularly vibrant and expressive applications of this medium: the concert poster and the theatre poster. For stylistic inspiration and a basic historical overview, we will look back at the most revolutionary movements and artists of poster art: from the French Art Nouveau posters of the 1890s to the psychedelic-rock posters of the 1960s.

Look up, look down, treasure is all around. Is a bottle cap beautiful? Are sticks stunning? Leaves are lovely but can refuse really be ravishing? In this online course, child-parent* teams will explore their environments to collect their own "treasures." Teams will work collaboratively to create art out of the objects they find. Weekly projects will introduce teams to the topics of repurposing, recycling, as well as, impermanence and sustainability. The overarching focus, however, will be the child-parent relationship and their collaboration, teamwork and creativity.
