HI HO SILVER Ann Zerger, Associate Professor of Art

Fee to be determined by market price of silver and other materials. Ann is going to get a “guess-timation” to me soon.

GO FIGURE! Michaela Groeblacher, Assistant Professor of Art, McPherson College
Creating the human figure in clay. Beginning with strategies to define proportions of the human figure, participants will experience the “building solid/hollowing out” techniques that Michaela uses to create her figures. Participants will encounter the flexibility in planning dramatic, performative poses when working with clay.
Fee for use of clay: $20

TIGHT AND LOOSE !! Wayne A. Conyers, Professor of Art,
Visual Arts Department Chair, McPherson College

A day of two completely different methods of painting in watercolor. Participants will begin with strategies for painting highly reflective metal objects. The focus will be on “keying up” skills of perception and observation. Can it get any tighter? As the workshop progresses, participants will move into altered mixed-media watercolor monotypes combining watercolor with ink and/or acrylics. As plates are drying to be printed, participants will return to painting reflective objects. So back and forth the participants will go between the tight rendering of reflections and the more spontaneous and expressive process of monotypes. Talk about loose! An “interesting” day of watercolor is guaranteed for all. Participants need to bring watercolors and brushes for the tight reflective paintings, as well as a couple of objects to paint. For the loose monotype experience, it would be good to add other watermedia of their choice. Plexiglas plates for the monotypes will be provided.
