Week 1: All about color, a deep dive into color theory. With a limited palette of primary colors (and white)  students will mix secondary colors and tints  to create a 12x16 acrylic painting on canvas.

Week 2: Students choice! One of the benefits of private and small group sessions is that I can adapt projects to student interest. We get to know each other the first week and during the second week we build on skills based on their areas of interest.

Possible projects include:

-A variety of handmade artist books. Handmade art journal with good quality drawing paper. A mixed media consertina style book, paperbag cover stamped books and quick mini books to gift to friends.  

Large format relief print. Students work through all the planning stages from brain storming subject matter, gathering items in the studio to create a still life, thumbnail sketches, preliminary drawings, finished drawings and carving. Together we discuss the elements of design and how to create a strong composition. 

-Multi colored printed tiles
Students will learn about reduction printing method, radial symmetry and design with this relief printmaking project.
