Painting is a rich and complex endeavor, which can reveal meaning at many different levels. Landscape as a motif is certainly no different. Central Pennsylvania's landscape offers spectacular complexities, at once elegant yet rugged; it is timeless yet very rooted in the present. We will focus on the light and atmosphere of Mt. Gretna and the surrounding areas as a means to explore the many variations and similarities of tone, color, temperature, texture, and edges. 6.5 hours instruction

Time: 2:00 pm

ALTERNATIVE TECHNIQUES IN COLORED PENCIL AND INK WASH ON CANVAS All skill levels, beginner to advanced. The 25% youth discount code is "youth" (must be under 18 years old; class is recommended ages 16 and up but we will consider younger students with parent consultation and consent). This class will offer a process of Robert Kogge's own design as an alternate or extension of more traditional means. These mediums use the heavy weave of the canvas as the steady consistent mark; distilling positive and negative space evenly while rendering a particulate profile to all. This approach will demonstrate the significance in personalizing one's materials and methods to best suit ones own aesthetic sensibilities. How one creates will be regarded with highlighted importance as to what one creates in promoting expression by way of means and methods. The class will begin with a discussion of what led Mr. Kogge to develop this technique. Prominent examples will be noted, in particular George Seurat, as well as Paul Cézanne, Marcel Duchamp, Jackson Pollock, Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Louise Nevelson, Andy Warhol, and Chuck Close—to name just a few whose departure from traditional methods was critical in realizing their particular vision. A demonstration of materials and procedure will follow. Aside from this process formal issues of two dimensional art and the task of uniting these elements into a balanced composition will be addressed. Students can use reference materials such as photographs, take subject matter directly from nature or do a version of something they’ve completed in a different medium. Individual attention will be provided to all. , 8 hours total instruction register online.
