Landscapes: Acrylic Glazing Painting

All Skill Levels, Young Adults & Adults

Instructor: Chester Kasnowski

You will learn to paint in Acrylics with the result looking like an oil

painting. This is accomplished using glazing techniques. The main

advantage of oil paints is its slow drying aspect which allows blending

and oil paints are generally deeper and richer in color. By glazing

Acrylics with gel medium and thin transparent layers you can achieve

rich colors and blend better. And using the fast drying quality of

Acrylic you will be able to finish a painting during each class. The

subject of landscapes is perfect for this technique; allowing the student

to work on location. I will give a brief talk on the day’s task, like

how to paint convincing water, or how to paint dynamic skies and

then I’ll give individual instruction to each student. This allows all

levels of skill to join the class. (Meets in W-10)

the right and left brain paradigm by experiencing first hand

results of working out your creative muscle. We will explore the 8

sections of the book, The Artist Within. Participants will share their

insight into the art of life, as revealed in the pages they read each

week. Through a series of defined creative exercises and discussion

Opening the Photographer’s Eye

Intermediate, Young Adults & Adults

Instructor: Mark Gilvey

This class is designed to teach you how to get visual ideas across

through time-tested composition principles. It is for the photographer

who already has a basic understanding of how to use their

camera—not a beginner. Each week will include demonstrations and

discussion about composition principles that will help you communicate

your visual ideas more affectively. We’ll review tools in Adobe

Lightroom for post-processing your images. There are in-class group

activities, weekly assignments with follow-up review and critique, and

fun ongoing out-of-class photography projects for those who can’t

get enough. In short, there will be as much or as little of photography

as your time permits. It does not matter what type of camera you

use as long as you know how to get a good exposure out of it—this

course is not for the absolute beginner. If you own a non-DSLR camera

(like a mobile phone for example) you will be introduced to terms

and techniques that only apply to DSLR camera owners, but don’t let

that deter you—they are minimal. If you want to bring your laptop

and use your own post-processing software and follow along as I

demo Lightroom, you are welcome to do so. The class will have Windows

computers that have Lightroom on them, just bring a thumb

drive from home to transfer your files to the computer. Apple people,

Windows works similar to Mac, I will assist you. Do not take this class

if you want to learn everything there is to know about mobile photography,

Adobe Lightroom or how your camera works. This is a class

about composition that uses Lightroom as a tool, so the work we’ll

do is just enough that students can complete assignments. It is not

a course about how to use your camera although it will be lightly

touched on as needed. (Meets in W-3, 304)

CERAMICS

Raku: Western Raku

All Skill Levels

Instructor: Bill Schran

The process of raku was developed in Japan in the 1500’s and became

integral as the ceremonial tea ware of the Zen Buddhist Masters.

Tea bowls were made of earthenware and decorated with lowfire

lead bearing glazes. The tea bowls were fired in small kilns fueled

by charcoal, removed from the kiln with tongs when the glaze has

melted, then allowed to cool naturally. The Western raku process

shares the rapid firing and removal of pieces from the kiln when the

glaze is melted, but that’s where the processes take different paths.

Western raku employs a post-firing reduction process. When the red

hot pots are removed from the kiln, they are placed in a can of combustible

material and a lid is placed over the can to seal it shut. By

smothering the flames, a carbon filled smoky atmosphere within the

can is created. This causes copper bearing glazes to turn from oxidized

green to reduced red colors. Any areas of bare clay will turn

black. Workshop participants should prepare 5–6 pots for the raku

process. Use of Soldate 60 clay is highly recommended, or any clay

labeled as raku clay with sand and/or grog in it. All pots MUST be

bisque fired prior to the evening glazing session of the workshop.

Raku: Non-traditional Alternative

Processes

All Skill Levels

Instructor: Bill Schran

Since the development of Western Raku in the 1960’s potters have

been exploring a variety of techniques that employee the basic raku

firing process but developing ways of creating a decorative surface

without the use of glazes. During this workshop we will be firing the

pots as one would for a raku firing. Since we will not be using glazes

on the pots, it is suggested that terra sigillata be used for a more

refined finished appearance, though this is not required. Participants

will be introduced to the following techniques: Foil Saggar, Horse

Hair, Feather decoration and Obvara Firing. Participants should prepare

6 – 8 pots. Pots based on the cylinder form are highly recommended

with openings at the rim large enough in diameter to be

grasped with tongs. All supplies will be provided.

Increasing Scale

Intermediate to Advanced Students

Instructor: Brian Grow

This hands-on workshop will enable you to conceive of a way to

make larger work within your skill level. I will demonstrate techniques

that will empower you to think along different tangents, explore

subtle aesthetics and have a laugh as you challenge yourself. That’s

right; I said laugh. We’ll explore composite forms, stacked vessels,

coil throwing and all manner of craziness. Throughout this session we

will also consider the marriage of form and firing technique. I believe

this to be an idea that we should all consider as makers of thoughtful

objects. It will be fun and informative.

Saggar Firing with Aluminum Foil

Beginner to Advanced Students

Instructor: Paul Lyon

During this workshop we will explore, discuss and try a variety of

possibilities using aluminum foil as a saggar in this alternative firing

method. Discussion will cover the types of clay used as well as throwing,

trimming and burnishing. We will prepare the pieces using a

variety of materials (salt, sugar, copper wire, horsehair, miracle grow,

toilet paper and other strange things) and discuss different firing

temps. Clean up and finishing of work is a vital part of this process.

Participants should bring small to medium size work which has been

burnished and bisque fired. (Low temp bisque will retain the smooth

burnished surface better. I suggest cone 015.) All necessary materials

will be supplied, except pots to be fired. Participants should come

prepared with closed toed shoes, respirator, natural cotton clothing,

a bag lunch, and a sketchbook. Pieces will be ready to take home.

The Workhouse Glass Program is a collective and highly interactive environment

with the goal of promoting the Glass Arts through research, education

and outreach. The Glass Program, housed in Building W-7 at the

Workhouse, has a fully equipped facility with a kiln room, cold-working

room, flameworking classroom and a multi-purpose flat working classroom

used for instructional purposes in fusing, mosaics, stained glass

and glass casting. We also have two sand-blasting units, nine table-top

surface mix bench burners, a fully stocked store, and extensive shelving

and workspace(s) in each classroom. Our studio facility is also comprised

of nine private or shared studio spaces, home for our glass resident artists,

whose works range from the functional to the sculptural. The facility

also houses our retail glass gallery for the exhibition and sale of resident

artists’ artworks.

GLASS CLASSES

The Workhouse is proud to offer a variety of classes for ages 13 and older

in kiln casting and forming, glass jewelry, fusing, stained glass, flameworking

and mosaics. Our instructors are emerging, pre-professional or

professional glass artists and/or glass art educators. As is our goal with

all of our visual arts classes, each student is given individual attention

and provided a wide array of philosophies and techniques for accomplishing

their individual goals and complementing their work in glass.

Independent Flame

This class is perfect for the advanced student or glass artist who prefers

to work independently or alongside other advanced and experienced

flame workers. Each participant is requested to share a short

presentation on any flameworking topic to their fellow classmates

(e.g., a specific forming, shaping or color application technique). Participants

are given a 27-hour pass which they can use during any time

that Open Studio or another Independent Flame slot is available.

good condition of every human being, while movement and methodical

physical exercise save it and preserve it.”

with full repertoire apparatus. Our unique program also

features classes in Australian Calisthenics, Rowing, Cycling, and

of the dancer. The cultural history of each mele (song) will be

discussed, emphasizing how background is embedded in the dance

vocabulary and style.

Zen•ga

ZEN•GA is a synergistic blend of mind-body modalities, supported

by exercise science and the newest findings in fascial fitness. ZEN

represents the search for inner discovery, while YOGA symbolizes a

pathway to reach it. Together they form ZEN•GA, which is based on

Four Mindful Movement Principles: breath, support, yield and flow.

When applied together, these principles bring awareness of how the

body and the mind move in tandem. ZEN•GA focuses on core stability,

stamina and resilience while attaining a state of presence. The

increase in demand on the neuromuscular system affords the benefits

of improved strength, enhanced elasticity and creates a more

youthful, resilient and uid body.

Children’s Hula

Hula classes for children (keiki) from ages 3 to 15 years. New students

must be able to participate in the class by themselves. Basic

hula steps and hand motions are taught separately, using Hawaiian

words, games and chants to focus and practice. Hawaiian stories and

sometimes crafts are incorporated to learn about the Hawai- ian culture.

We have a circle time for getting to know all hula sisters and

brothers, and learning Hawaiian language and songs.

Ballroom

Learn how to cha-cha, waltz, foxtrot, swing and more! Learn the first

five basic steps of each dance in the beginning ballroom and then

learn the rest of the steps in intermediate ballroom. Feel your confidence

grow as you move, step, swirl and spin around the floor!

Tai Chi

Taijiquan Kung Fu also called Tai Chi Chuan (Tai Chi) is a Chinese

martial art which means “Supreme Ultimate Boxing.” It is an exercise

system for relaxation, health and self-defense. It consists of

slow, circular hand, foot and body movements. It can be described

as swimming in water. Anyone, regardless of age or physical ability,

can practice Tai Chi. The Cheng Man Ch’ing Form (also known as the

Yang Style Short Form -37) will be taught. For those interested, the

martial arts and self defense application of each posture will also be

covered.

fitness level, age, gender or previous training experience. In fact,

Bodyblade automatically adjusts to the fitness level of each user to

Australian Calisthenics

Calisthenics is an artistic sport unique to Australia. It combines

dance, gymnastics, singing, apparatus manipulation and ballet, and

is performed in theatres. It involves a team of pupils learning routines

choreographed to music—each of about three to four minutes

in duration—and presenting those routines at concerts. Pupils learn

approximately six routines concurrently throughout a year and this is

where the diversity of the sport is seen. Calisthenics can be categorised

as both a sport and an art. As a sport, it encourages physical

development, coordination, self-discipline and team spirit. As an art,

it develops an appreciation of music and rhythm, the beauty of line

and the excitement of presenting on stage.

Instructors: Paul Volpe, Steve Hick, Joshua Badgley, James Clark

“Bumpers” at Workhouse is a simple gathering of friends getting together to explore

the Art of the Sword. This studio class is designed to provide an opportunity

for master teachers, researchers, and movement artists to get together and share in

the wealth and depth of knowledge that is found in the historical traditions and fighting

techniques from around the world. Our hope is to create a forum in which we can

develop our skills in the Art of the Swordand learn from one another. “Bumpers” is a

physical journey that will create an opportunity to explore historical material on the

highest possible level with the most experienced scholars and professionals of our

craft. Develop in each other a comprehensive under- standing of our research, techniques

and process. The idea is to create a kind of “collective educational format”

that will allow the studio to serve the project participants through the entire year, in

a journey of personal growth in scholarship, technique and process.

Essential Oils Workshops

& Aromat Yoga Series

Instructor: Marilyn Peppers

Aromatherapy is derived from the ancient practice

of using natural plant essences to promote

health and well-being. It consists of the use of

pure essential oils obtained from a wide assortment

of plants, which have been steam distilled

or cold-pressed from flowers, fruit, bark

and roots. Aromatherapy can help ease a wide

assortment of ailments; easing aches, pains,

and injuries, while relieving the discomforts

of many health problems. Aromatherapy also

acts on the central nervous system, relieving

depression and anxiety, reducing stress, relaxing,

uplifting, sedating or stimulating, restoring

both physical and emotional well-being.
