"Off the Hook" with Jillian Sander
This workshop will delve into the craft of crochet through jewelry making. Using yarn, wire, and beads, students will learn to combine the art of soft sculpture with the functionality of jewelry. This class is inclusive to all experience levels and will cover key crochet stitches and patterns as well as bead/metal work. The workshop will focus on giving each student the ability to approach crochet with an experimental attitude. Crochet has no limits, and this class will provide you with the skill set and crochet knowledge to properly unravel the art of yarn and create something wildly unique! Students will need a 2.25 mm crochet hook and a couple different colors of yarn that is weight 4 or smaller. We'll also be needing some beading equipment like round nose pliers, long nose pliers, and side cutters, and some wire, beads, and little o-rings. All levels welcome.

This two-day hands-on workshop will focus on exploring and challenging the possibilities of the ceramic vessel.

This workshop is geared to cover a variety of throwing, altering and hand building techniques to generate ideas and express different qualities of the material. Expect a playful atmosphere rich with experimentation and discovery, as we challenge the processes, histories and conventions of the ceramic vessel. Level of Student- Intermediate/ Advanced.

Capturing Character - Painting People & Pets with Patrick Saunders
Learn to paint portraits of people and pets, capturing a likeness as rapidly as possible. This three-day workshop will focus on the accuracy of drawing, values, edges, texture, and color. Students will learn to paint the portrait alla prima, with dynamic brushwork and texture, achieving not only a likeness, but energetic and engaging paintings. We will paint a new portrait every day, focusing on quick starts and a less is more approach. Learn what factors contribute to a likeness vs. unnecessary details that can contribute to an overworked, lifeless portrait. All levels are welcome, even if you’ve never painted portraits before. Patrick’s simple steps for evaluating your paintings in progress will improve not only your skills as a portrait painter, but your painting abilities in general. Each day will start with a full demonstration and lecture followed by students painting with frequent one-on-one instruction. We will work from photographs on (day 1 & 2) and a live model (day 3). The day will end with a class critique where Patrick will provide individualized areas of improvement for each student to focus on during the following session.
