The Color of Portraiture

Session 1: 10:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m.

Session 2: 1:30–3:30 p.m.

Explore the ways color manifests itself in a variety of media such as watercolor and water-based oil paint. Take inspiration from the exhibition Infinite Blue and works such as Fred Wilson’s Grey Area (Brown Version) and paint portraits rich with color.

Fiber Art and Personal Narrative
Sundays, 10:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m.

What stories do textiles tell? Be inspired by Georgia O’Keeffe, Faith Ringgold, and Betye Saar and the work they created that combines textiles, identity, and personal narrative. Learn to use techniques such as dyeing, piecing, and image transfer to recycle textiles into works of art that tell your story.

Drawing and Painting the Female Figure
Sundays, 1:30–3:30 p.m.
Take a trip through time as you explore depictions of female figures in ancient Egyptian sculpture, European painting, and contemporary art. Discuss the ways artists have challenged stereotypes about the role of women throughout history, then sketch and paint from live models to create your own works in acrylics and alternate materials such as metallic pencil.
