Visit the Gallery through March 3 to see what students at The Art League have been up to in the past year — and what you could do this year!
The 2013 Student/Faculty Show showcases artwork from students and faculty members in every medium taught at The Art League. It’s a great chance to see if there’s an instructor whose work strikes your fancy, or find student work that makes you say, “Hey, I want to do that!” Here’s some of what’s in store:
Ceramics students at The Art League throw clay on the potter’s wheel, hand-build forms, and create tiles, mosaics, and anything else they imagine. This year, we filmed students doing a raku firing and put it on YouTube.
Interested? Check out the catalog by clicking “Ceramics” above, and scroll down to check out the sculpture classes, too.
Students created the work below in Lisa Semerad’s and Priscilla Treacy’s colored pencil classes, Jin Chung’s portrait drawing class, and Robert Liberace’s classical drawing classes. If you’re interested in drawing, click the link above to view the catalog, and check out a video demo from instructor Jin Chung on YouTube.
Knitting, weaving and tapestry, spinning, tapestry, dyeing, felting, surface design, silk painting, shibori, fiber sculpture, rug hooking and hat-making are all taught at The Art League. You can find more info about fiber arts classes by clicking the link above. And don’t miss our instructor demo on Youtube, How to Felt a Flower.
Check out jewelry, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, stained glass, collage, and mosaic classes after the jump!
Jewelry students design and create their own pieces using silver, copper, acrylic, and other materials. Different classes cover skills including metalworking, soldering, enameling, and wax modeling. Click the link above for more information about jewelry classes, and to see some of the instructors in action, check out our YouTube videos featuring Abby Goldblatt and Nick Barnes.
The Art League’s painting instructors teach oil, acrylic, pastel, watercolor, and encaustic, in classes ranging from beginning instruction to subjects including abstract expressionism, trompe l’oeil, impressionism, alla prima, figure and portrait painting, and lots more. Check out all of our offerings at the link above, and you can watch many of our painting instructors in action on YouTube: Sara Linda Poly, Kurt Schwarz, John Murray, Nancy Freeman, Danni Dawson, Rob Liberace, Susan Herron, Priscilla Treacy, Betzi Robinson, and even more in the full demo playlist.
Art League photography classes teach you how to use either film or digital cameras. Classes guide you through subjects like lighting, night photography, darkroom techniques, architecture photography, and more — find more information at the link above.
Art League printmakers teach classes and workshops on silk screen printing, etching, intaglio, lithography, monotypes, and more! Take a look at instructor Nancy McIntyre’s silk screen class in this Youtube video.
Whether you want to work realistically in clay, or make something modern and large in stone or metal, there’s an Art League sculpture class for you! Check out the full catalog at the link above.
These are the classes that put it all together, whether it’s cut glass, ceramic tiles, or anything else. There are also classes and workshops on subjects like bookbinding, beadmaking, glass fusing, calligraphy, and a class this April on Apps for Artists — see them all at the link above. We also have some videos on YouTube with Stained Glass instructor Jimmy Powers and Collage instructor Rosemary Luckett.
Spring term classes start in April, and registration is now open! More information about The Art League School is on our School homepage.
The Student/Faculty Show will have a closing reception Sunday, March 3, at 2:00 pm.
