Embroidering a Flattering Selfie

with artist Aurora Molina

Participants will create a Selfie using thread and stitches.
With the notion of representing oneself through a digital portrait, participants incorporating thread as an element of historical value, looking closely at different textile traditions, like embroidery techniques. Embroidering the selfie versus the instant
gratification of the one click away will give the participants the benefit of constructing an image of themselves rather than the ethereal digital rendering of their selfie.

Beach Inspired Projects and Drawing

Children session: In this workshop young students will take something from nature (beach items like sea shells), and create a wearable piece of art or add it into a composition, using anime and other drawing skills.

Adult session: The ocean’s currents bring all types of surprises to our shores year-round. Found beach items can be used to enhance landscapes, seascapes and more, creating a third dimension in contemporary art.
Bring your beach finds or just your imagination for a workshop in contemporary seascapes.

Alla Prima Painting Party (featuring Sunday Brunch)

Oil Painting Workshop
Join us for a very “brunchy” Sunday of Mimosas and Alla Prima oil painting. Alla prima is a wet on wet style of painting and in Italian translates to, “first attempt”. We will begin with a potluck style brunch (mimosas provided) and continue into the afternoon with alla prima painting in the studio.

Beginner students will dip a toe into oil painting and leave with resources for continuing this practice at home. Intermediate to advanced students can use this time to refine their skills and experiment in a relaxing environment. Everyone will have a finished piece at the end of the workshop, painted in alla prima style. Students are encouraged to bring “brunch” themed source imagery.

2- Day Collage Workshop

Two-day workshop with Derek Gores

Learn to loosen up and create artwork with recycled magazines and more. Using found materials and surprises in the scraps at hand, you will learn to get beyond pre-determining every mark you make. Derek is known for work that is sensual and organic, yet built with dynamic graphic shapes. The viewer is enchanted by one image from afar and then is teased with surprising shifts as you get closer.  Derek will assist you in opening up to the possibilities of new textures, new meaning, and new spatial depth in your work. The collage subject matter is open and can be decided at the beginning of class. Still life, portrait, landscape, and more. Less experienced artists should consider a still life object. Derek will demo and lead a discussion. A touch of art history too. No experience necessary.
