Bending Lines - Film Screening

 
 
BENDING LINES POSTER 27 X 40 021219 150 dpi RGB.jpg

Bending Lines is a story of obsession, of vision, and of the enduring conversation between art and science. It uncovers an amateur mathematician, obscured by time and his profession, whose work communicates the universal quest to discover the essence of the natural world.

Nearing the end of his life, sculptor Robert Wiggs looks back on a lifelong obsession with patterns. Never formally trained in mathematics, Wiggs studied mud cracks, bee hives, and tree bark to create a geometric system that rivals the work of academic mathematicians, a system which he expressed and explored in scores of sculptures.

Basic Acrylic Painting

Instructor: Rob Fairburn

Thursdays August 15, 22, 29, & September 5 from 6-8 pm


Acrylic Painting through a print-maker's eyes.

Over this 4 week course, students will explore value, color theory, the importance of experimenting, and methods of acrylic painting through an emphasis on process.


Week 1. Process is everything. 

“There is no cheating in art. It’s all method.”
—A Very Wise Man (Rob Fairburn)

Today we will talk about sculpting shape with value, and the importance of an under painting as a roadmap. We will make a blue and white value painting of a still life. 

Week 2. Value adds value. Color adds flavor.

If a good value painting is a steak dinner, good color is the garlic butter sauce. 

Today we will experiment with color and discuss the basics of color theory, and how to use that to make exciting compositions. We will create two still life paintings that explore this idea. 

Week 3. Define art... 

“Art is why i get up in the morning.”
—Ani Difranco

This week we will discuss “what is art.” Redefining “good art and bad art” as “successful and unsuccessful art,” and why both are ok.

This week will will experiment with abstract art concepts and methods. We will create a cityscape in beautiful downtown Covington.

Week 4. Self portrait. Endless opportunity for learning.

This week we will combine all of the knowledge we have learned so far, painting a self portrait using a method i have built based on layering techniques commonly used in printmaking.

Introduction to Figure Drawing

Thursdays September 19, 26, October 3, and 10 from 6:00-8:00PM.

Instructor: Caroline Poehler

Figure drawing is one of the oldest and most valuable artistic traditions. In this course, you will be working with a nude model, which is an invaluable asset to aspiring and established artists alike. Drawing a model from observation develops and broadens one’s perceptual drawing skills. Through this experience students will further their understanding of the proportional relationships and rhythms of the body and natural forms. This course will introduce you to various materials, techniques, and approaches to drawing the human form including gesture drawing, contour, outline, and tonal modeling. Frequent individual critiques and guidance will help students personalize their creative thinking and expression.

*All levels of drawing experience are welcome.

*This course may also be purchased per class for artists and others looking for model access and a drawing group rather than instruction/direction.

During this four-week plein air urban sketching class, instructor Rachel Pace will teach the basics of watercolor, as well as a specific style and way to use the painting medium. The class will take some time to stroll around the Art House in Downtown Covington to paint from observation, and learn a bit about perspective and creating a composition. Students will learn the practice of getting an idea down on paper quickly, all while facing the little challenges that may arise when painting from life and in the outdoors (such as a bug flying into your paint or pedestrians trying to see just what you are doing!).

By the end of the session, you will have the beginnings of a fantastic sketchbook, which will include some of the architecture and nature of our beloved St. Tammany Art House and Historic Downtown Covington.
