Transcending the Photo Reference in Painting with Alyssa Monks

June 20 @ 10:00 am - June 22 @ 4:00 pm
Sunbury Shores Arts and Nature Centre, 139 Water Street
ST. Andrews, New Brunswick E5B 1A7 Canada
+ Google Map

This workshop is designed to guide the students toward creating a painting from a photo reference, using both indirect and direct traditional painting techniques. It aims to instruct painters on how to use the photograph to create a painting that surpasses the look of the photograph, not simply imitates a photograph.
The workshop will explain how to create a useful photo reference, covering topics such as ideal lighting, camera settings, lenses, Photoshop, and printing. The process will begin with preparations such as choosing a composition through quick sketches from a variety of reference photos, progressive oil sketches with limited use of the photograph, and then laying in the composition with an imprimatura wash. When that is dry, the students will learn to create color relationships that portray the space and volume, creating the illusion. Emphasis is then placed on paint application and ways of activating the surface.

Summer Workshop Series: On Your Marc … Get Sip! … Go! A sip ‘n’ paint exploration of the animal art of Franz Marc

June 27 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Eastport Arts Center (EAC), 36 Washington Street
Eastport, ME 04631 United States
+ Google Map

A sip ’n’ paint event inspired by Expressionist painter Franz Marc will be offered from 7-9 pm, Thursday, June 27, at Eastport Arts Center. Organizer Sue Riddle, who has named the event ‘On Your Marc … Get Sip … Go!’ notes “I am drawn to Marc for his fabulously colorful animal paintings—which are just juicy, glorious things. In one article I read, it mentioned that he wanted to see animals from their perspective, but he also wanted to use colors as symbols of certain qualities and emotions.” Participants in the event (a follow-up to Riddle’s Sip ’n’ Klimt, inspired by the works of Gustav Klimt, held last year) can choose to copy directly from a Marc painting or create a tribute based on an animal photo brought from home. Another option is to attempt to recreate or continue one of Marc’s ‘lost’ works, referencing images from Marc’s sketchbook, created in the field near the time of his death in World War I. All materials will be provided for the sipping painters, as well as things to sip (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) and snacks.

Landscape Painting and the Environment with David Kaarsemaker

July 17 @ 9:00 am - July 20 @ 4:00 pm
Sunbury Shores Arts and Nature Centre, 139 Water Street
ST. Andrews, New Brunswick E5B 1A7 Canada
+ Google Map

This workshop will combine art history with art making, exploring how landscape painting in Western art reflects the complicated relationship between humans and the environment. This course will focus in particular on changes in the conception of depth in painting and how this corresponds with the increasing separation between subject and object in Western thought more generally. We will explore ways of extending and flattening illusory space, working in a range of media (acrylic paint, charcoal, ink, pastels...) and from a variety of subjects, including collage, hand-made models, and plein air observation. We will consider the mystical space of Byzantine Icons, the development of linear perspective in the Renaissance, the concept of the Sublime in Romanticism and Modernism, and the fragmentation of space throughout the 20th century.

The sky was….blue? Writing the Summer Landscape with Jonathan Sapers

July 22 @ 9:00 am - July 26 @ 4:00 pm
Sunbury Shores Arts and Nature Centre, 139 Water Street
ST. Andrews, New Brunswick E5B 1A7 Canada
+ Google Map

How do you describe the summer? It’s almost impossible not to start with the temperature and the comparative brightness of the sun and if we are lucky enough to be in a place like St. Andrews, with the water, the trees, the birds and the whales. And can you really describe what happens in the summer – say summer love -- without framing it with summer details? As a result, describing what the sky was like in the summer in a short story or essay can become an exercise in rendering emotion or opinion through detail. In this course, we will experiment with describing our summer landscape in the creation of either short stories or essays based in St Andrews.
