Workshops allow you to kick-start your creativity or learn a specialized skill in a convenient, shorter format. Taught by professional artists, workshops are available for students at all levels of experience and are kept small to ensure that individual attention can be given to everyone. Students learn in a supportive environment and are encouraged to fully explore their creativity and strive for excellence.
New! The Painted Accordion
This workshop combines watercolor painting with accordion bookbinding. The first day will be devoted to creating a group of small watercolor paintings that work together as a series or tell a story. These paintings will explore one particular idea, theme, or concept. Bring your watercolor kit to class and an idea of your desired subject along with reference materials (e.g., photos, objects) for inspiration. We will be painting on 300-lb. watercolor paper.
The second day students will learn to make an accordion book that can stand up for display. Using as many of your watercolor paintings as you like for the pages, we will hinge them together with sturdy, color- coordinated paper, and attach hard covers. The result will be a beautiful, unique artist’s book.
Join us for an exciting workshop in both watercolor and bookbinding.
Supplies: Bring your watercolor kit to class and an idea of your desired subject along with reference materials (e.g., photos, objects) for inspiration. All bookbinding materials and tools provided.
Prerequisite: For intermediate painting and advanced watercolor students or permission of the instructor, Judy Atlas. No bookbinding experience necessary.
