Description

For amateur and professional alike, drawing skills are fundamental to the artist's visual education. Through guided practice, beginning students sharpen their powers of observation as they learn to translate what they see into drawings. Using basic tools and materials, students develop their drawing skills by exploring concepts such as line, form, value, proportion, perspective and composition. Through a series of graduated exercises, students learn to draw the figure, still lifes and the environment with confidence and prepare for further work in a variety of art media.

Description

Design is the discipline underlying all forms of visual expression, and an understanding of two-dimensional design principles is the basis for all 2D art forms. This course introduces students to the formal elements of design: line, shape, pattern, value, texture, color and space. Working through a variety of challenging exercises, students use these elements to solve problems of visual organization. The placement of visual elements into an organized whole is the basis of composition, and skills acquired in this class have direct applications to anyone working in two-dimensional media, from advertising art directors to illustrators, interior designers and painters.

Applies to: AD-E, AV-E, CB-R, DI-E, DS-R, ID-R, JM-R, NS-R

Description

Van Gogh, Matisse, Titian and even Warhol were masterful colorists who used color deliberately to create powerful drama in their work. The dynamics of color are fundamental to virtually all design, illustration and painting. In this course, students explore how the concepts of value, hue and intensity relate to design and how the use of color is integral to a piece's effect and ultimate success. As students explore the specific applications of color used by professionals in advertising, illustration and two- and three-dimensional design, they come to understand the integration of art and science we call color theory.

Description

Impressionist painting challenged traditional academic rules when it first appeared in the 19th Century -- most notably for its radical approach to using color. Rather than mixing color, the Impressionists juxtaposed side-by-side short brushstrokes so colors mix optically, creating vibrant and exciting effects. They also substituted color instead of grays and dark colors. Additionally, each artist put a unique spin on color: the pulsing tone on tone colors of Gauguin and Cezanne, the torque and bravado of Van Gogh's brushwork, and the intricate webbed surfaces of Monet. In this course, we examine and draw inspiration from these great examples of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist works found in the collection of the RISD Museum. Through viewing, discussion and then creation of work in the studio, students experience the technical and inspirational aspects of this art movement. Elements of discourse and production focus on color, palette, composition and materials used. Come and enrich your color knowledge and understanding of this beloved group of artists!

Oscar-Claude Monet, Falaises pres de Pourville, 1882.

Description

Encaustic, an ancient technique used to create commemorative wax portraits in Roman and Egyptian art, is once again a popular medium for artists. Also called hot wax painting, encaustic is the process of creating an image from molten beeswax colored with pigments and then applied to a surface -- either wood, masonite or canvas. The wax cools in minutes, enabling the application of many successive coats. Smoothing and scraping the wax, painting between each layer, and using heat to bind the layers creates a finish with a lustrous enamel-like appearance. By working from both invented imagery and direct observation, students of all skill levels are encouraged to experiment and allow their paintings to evolve as they reheat and rework surfaces until the desired effect is achieved.

Description

What elevates a painting from mere exercise to work of art? Join us to develop a range of techniques for using oil and acrylic paints as you learn basic painting skills. Through class assignments, students investigate the properties of oils and acrylics; the expressive qualities of compositional elements; how to work with brushes, palette knives, paints and media; and techniques for paint application, from underpainting and glazing to impasto. Students work from many sources, including direct observation, drawings and reference material. Throughout the course, group and individual critiques enable students to develop their personal strengths as they cultivate individual styles.

Applies to: CB-E, DS-E

Description

The small distance from your palette to your brush, progressing to a canvas/support, can be dizzyingly big without preparation. This introductory painting workshop taught by living "Old Master" Harley Bartlett breaks down the fundamentals of beginning and sustaining a painting, from step-by-step explanation of palette setup, color selection and color properties, to what different brushes can do and, finally, to the canvas. Harley explains, demonstrates and reviews working techniques to determine how to improve painting skills. All aspects of painting are discussed including drawing, layering, glazing, color mixing and brushwork, along with mediums and canvas choice. Students bring reference material to work from for this workshop, so individual interests can be pursued. All skill levels welcome.

Applies to: DS-E
