PHOTOGRAPHY LAB
– ERICA EDWARDS

TUESDAYS, 3:30-5:00PM
APRIL 18 – MAY 2 (3 SESSIONS)

Erica will lead the group in making anthotypes, Lumen prints and cyanotypes- all methods of developing photographic film that use alternative materials like plant fibers or the sun to get amazing effects. Bright blues, cool sepia tones, and weathered or textured looks can all be expected in this part science lab part darkroom workshop. No experience necessary!


NOT YOUR GRANDMA’S CROSS STITCHING
-Erica Edwards
TUESDAYS, 3:30-5:00PM
MAY 16 – MAY 30 (3 SESSIONS)

Cross stitching is usually shrugged off as a boring pastime of yore, but Erica’s here to prove that it’s a great way to execute and share original designs and drawings. Think of cross stitching like drawing in thread- you create an image by making patterns of tiny x’s in different color embroidery floss, and when it all comes together you have a cool little patch or wall hanging. Join this workshop to make a couple of your own thread-drawings, and learn a new craft that will probably become your new favorite obsession.

 

MAKE GOOD ART LOOK GREAT
-Brandy Anderson, Britney Mendel

WEDNESDAYS, 3:30-5:00PM
APRIL 19 AND 26

You put a lot into your artwork; make sure it stands out on the gallery wall in this two-part workshop on art presentation. We’ll visit Pendleton Art and Frame to get tips from the professionals on successful matting and framing, and at the second session you’ll frame your own 2-D artwork just in time to enter it into the PCA’s Open Regional Exhibit for a chance to win a cash award. What’s the Open Regional? Find out at pendletonarts.org

MIND’S EYE PORTRAITS
– ARLEN CLARK

WEDNESDAYS, 3:30 - 5:00PM
APRIL 19 - MAY 24 (6 SESSIONS)

Arlen will share his unique approach to painting portraits, using lots of color and making up the composition as you go.

This class will focus on painting techniques, as well as how to express mood and feelings through use of color, exaggeration and distortion. Students with all levels of painting experience are welcome to attend- beginners too!

WORKING WITH CLAY

This is an outdoors, open fire process (like a camp fire). An additional permission form will be required to participate in the pit fire, but all can learn how to sculpt, build and construct clay in the PCA’s Alice Fossatti Ceramics Studio during the first half of the term. Come to the first class to find out more info. Beginners and returning students are all welcome.
