Winter Registration is Open—Get started on your New Year’s Resolution!

2018-19 Art League catalog cover

Winter Registration is now open!

As of this week, you can register for a brand-new year of workshops and the Winter term classes. Find all Winter Classes and Workshops here.

With 250+ classes and workshops this Winter in painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics, photography, jewelry-making, the fiber arts, printmaking, and more, we have the perfect class for you!

We’re happy to announce many NEW additions to our faculty and curriculum this year.

Here’s a taste of what’s new:

  • Color Spot Painting: This class, taught by visiting artist Ephraim Rubenstein (currently on staff with faculty of the Art Students League of New York and Columbia University, where he teaches the Literature of Art Seminar and Life Drawing in the Department of Narrative Medicine), will study color spot direct painting, this method accentuates space and atmosphere and allows for discovery of the unexpected.
  • In Hatchmark: Red Chalk Portraiture with Dan Thompson, students discover differences in various media called “red chalk” and their potential applications and explore ways of assembling forms in drawings to describe nuances of the human face.
  • Iridescence and Design in Gelli Plate Printing with Priscilla Treacy explores the Gelli Plate, an amazing tool for creating monotypes. With planning, stencils, stamps, and iridescent and interference paints, surprisingly complex artwork results.
  • Skies, Clouds, and Dramatic Light in the Landscape with Sara Linda Poly explores study techniques for painting skies, cloud formations, sunrises, sunsets, and night scenes.
  • The Portrait in Clay: Structure and Expression with Rick Weaver dives into portraiture through sculpture. Through demonstrations and individual critiques, students will learn the rudiments of creating a life size, ready-to-fire clay bust from life.
