In the nineteenth century, ‘botanizing’ became a craze. It was something you did on the seashore, in the meadows, or on the sidewalk. It was the act of observing, collecting, and identifying, in an attempt to understand the world in terms of its almost infinite myriad forms and faces. It was a way to become both lost and found. With botanizing as its framework, this course explores ways in which we might translate our daily observations and practices into another space and form such as a gallery installation. As starting points, this might include re-inhabiting the routine of a daily walk, identifying unconscious collection practices, or ways to rethink an already existing art or craft practice in terms of scale and experience. We will spend the course in discussion over examples and theories of installation, and take advantage of the natural setting of Sunbury Shores Arts and Nature Centre to immerse ourselves in the creation of individual, barely begun, well-conceived, yet wildly imagined, installation proposals.

A sample of topics that will be discussed include the expanded prismatic colour wheel and how to 'hold' a colour while it's lightened or darkened how to 'file' colours under umbrella hues how to juggle the 4 colour "balls" (hue, value, temperature and chroma) without dropping one while altering another and how to successfully reduce or heighten chroma without getting "mud". We'll also look at a variety of palettes, including the simplest to more complex flesh palettes. This workshop will help you mix the colours you're aiming for more swiftly, achieve more dynamic and subtle colour in your work, get more out of the paint colours you already have - and will help you make smart choices on the next that you buy.

Maggie Rose is a Canadian artist currently living in New York while teaching at the New York Academy of Art. After graduating cum laude from the Academy in 2001, Maggie continued her training at the Michael Aviano Atelier and studied drawing with Michael Grimaldi. She now paints full time and is passionate about teaching and passing on the training she feels blessed to have received. Maggie's work is primarily figurative. She prefers to work from life and often sculpts small figurines when working on subjects that require photo reference. Her primary focus is the continued exploration of the human body, of the color and translucency of flesh, and in objects which we identify with the body such as clothing and dressmaker forms.
