About Face — Ceramic Wall Sculpture
Workshop Schedule:Saturday, March 9, 2013
9 AM - 5 PM
Teaching Artist: Anne Gregerson
Has it been too long since you played in the mud? We'll learn about proportions, facial features and basic handbuilding techniques for clay as we each create a three-dimensional wall sculpture of a face. We'll look at ancient and contemporary examples of clay faces ranging from simple to more complex. Underglazes will be available for adding color to completed pieces, which will be fired and returned to Art Access for pick up two weeks after the workshop. Bring a sketchbook and think about personal symbols you might like to include. All skill levels are welcome!
Anne Gregerson has studied at the Tucson Museum of Art School and earned a BFA in fine art with an emphasis in sculpture from BYU. As a certified K-12 educator she has taught art for several years in Utah schools. She exhibits her work in regional and national shows, and is represented by "A Gallery" in SLC and "Marshall-LeKae Gallery" in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Figure Drawing — From Life, Memory and Imagination
Workshop Schedule:Saturday, March 23
9 AM - 5 PM
Teaching Artist: Brian Kershisnik
Figure drawing—a workshop to explore the aspects of assimilating the idea of the human figure in artwork. We'll engage in drawing the figure from life (using an undraped figure model), memory, and imagination. We'll do some talking about the very different worlds of observation, memory, and imagination, but mostly we will be drawing all day!
Brian Kershisnik grew up living on various continents across the globe—often drawing to entertain himself but never imagining people actually did this for a living. Settling back in Utah after high school he studied general architecture and ceramics until he was introduced to paint—which changed everything. Brian now paints at his studio in an old dance hall in Kanosh, Utah. His work has been exhibited and collected throughout Utah, the U.S. and across the globe.
Illuminations — Fused Glass
Workshop Schedule:Saturday, April 13
9 AM - 5 PM
Teaching Artist: Sarinda Jones
Learn the fundamentals of fusing glass in this hands-on class. We'll begin with exercises in glass cutting—including design basics, straight and curved cuts, use of tools, studio safety, and technique. Then, using your new found skills, you will design and create a fused sculpture that illuminates the simple beauty of glass. Pieces will be fired at the artist's studio and returned to Art Access for students to pick up later.
Sarinda Jones, a kiln-formed glass artist, has a background in fine art and art history. She has studied at the internationally renowned Pilchuck Glass School and at North Lands Creative Glass in Scotland. As an award-winning artist, Sarinda has shown her work internationally and has been commissioned to create a variety of fused glass pieces.
Encaustic Painting — An Introduction
Workshop Schedule: Please note this is a 2-day workshop, Saturday, May 4 and Sunday May 5
Time: 10 AM - 4 PM each day
This workshop will be held at the artist's studio: 666 West 100 South in Salt Lake City.
Tuition is $100 for two days, plus a $20 special materials fee.Registration is limited to 8 participants.
Discover the luminous and translucent quality of encaustic painting—learning the basics of an ancient painting technique that uses hot beeswax mixed with resin and pigment. Popular for use with collage materials, image transfers, and photography, encaustic painting involves applying layers of molten wax to a support surface and fusing each additional layer to the previous layer with heat. We'll each complete one or more small paintings during the workshop and will come away knowing how to prepare surfaces, melt paint, mix colors, create transfers and collages, and more!
Jeff Juhlin, a nationally recognized artist, has been working with encaustic for over 14 years. His work has been included in numerous national exhibitions and has been featured in several publications. Jeff holds a BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and has received fellowships from the Virginia Center for Creative Arts and the Moulin Au Nef Auvillar, France. He is represented by galleries in Salt Lake City, Scottsdale and Denver.
