    Join artist Albert Handell for a 2-hour informative "start to finish" demonstration of his process and unique style followed by a critique of each participant's work.

    You will see and learn what to select and emphasize and what to play down or even take out of your paintings in order to make a strong design statement and ultimately how to begin and how to resolve (finish) an oil painting.

    He will also cover glazing and unique Handell color theory showing clearly how to visually blend by painting with different colors of a similar value.

    The demo will be followed by a critique session focussing on individual works by each participant.

    Please bring 2 works for critique, preferably oil paintings (completely dry and unframed).

    Please sign up early; enrollment is limited.

    This 5-day class will expand your visual language of mark making, and introduce you to new ways of using pan and stick pastels with mixed media on various surfaces.

    The class is based on Emerson's book, Pastel Innovations, which explains methods of incorporating pastel over monotypes, trace monotypes, brayer drawing, and much more.

    Since the book was published Dawn has explored other materials and approaches that inspire even more ways to create fresh and spontaneous work.

    All levels welcome.

    Please sign up early, enrollment is limited.

    This 5-day workshop will explore the spontaneous and dynamic medium of monotype print-making, a very user-friendly and immediate art-making process. The monotype offers a way of working that can be spontaneous , fluid and very painterly. Images can be developed in a relative short space of time and because the plate retains a thin layer of ink after being printed ,(the ghost image)  it is easy to modify the image and work sequentially. This process has been used to great effect by many contemporary artists including, Jasper Johns. Sessions will begin with simple reductive methods, Gel plate techniques and progress through multi-plate prints incorporating collage (chine colle’) printed on an intaglio press . Use of 8x10 plexi plates, gel plates ,Golden Open Acrylics, Q or watercolor and water-soluble inks provided. 

    Please sign up early; class size is limited.
