Soup with Marcia 3/1

Soup with Marcia 3/1

March 1, 2018 1:30 pm

Mar. 1, 1:30-3 p.m. Fee-$3
Soup season is here and Marcia Raftery wants to share her soup recipes with you. If you’ve never made your own, you may be surprised to discover just how easy it is to prepare soups. They require very little work and can provide nourishment for an entire week. Unfortunately, many people are tempted to buy canned or otherwise prepared soups instead of making their own. The problem with store-bought soup is that it doesn’t taste as good as home-made. Canned and prepackaged soups are also made with low-grade ingredients, and usually very high in sodium, as a means to mask the flavor of sub-par ingredients. Don’t miss this fun taste of soup with Marcia. February will be Pasta Fagioli and the March soup is Kale. Yummy!

Time: 9:30am – 1:30pm
Cost: $75 Member | $95 Non-Member
*This is an intermediate level class.  Some experience with creating mobile digital art, using any app, is necessary.
Workshop Description:
What is a mask? In digital art, a mask is a tool to let you do something to a part of the image but not the whole.
What sort of something?  Anything.  You can change the exposure in a dark area of the image.  You can smooth only the skin.  You can make part of the image black and white.  You can blur the background.
You can ADD things to an image.  You can add a texture to the background.  You can add an object.  You can REMOVE or REPLACE things from an image.
We are going to focus on making masks in two apps: iColorama and Procreate.  I will also show you a simple way to cut out objects from photos that is useful for composite images. Different apps work in different ways, and different masking techniques work better for certain types of jobs. After you are comfortable with basic masking, we will explore some more advanced masking techniques.

Saturday, May 19 & Sunday, May 20
10:00AM – 4:30PM with lunch break
$225 Members/$255 Non-Members (includes $30 Material Fee for model fees and clay)

The ability to sculpt a realistic head in clay allows the artist to capture the essence or likeness of someone they admire or love in a three-dimensional form.
This class is for beginner and intermediate level students who want to learn how to create realistic portraits in clay.  Instructor Neil Grant teaches a step by step method that demystifies the process for sculpting a head.
Using a model and other materials as reference, students will learn how to look at a person, simplify what they are seeing and sculpt a realistic likeness.  At each stage of the process, Neil will explain the theory, give a demonstration of the technique, and then work one on one with each student as they create their sculpture.  The aim of the workshop is to give students a method they can take away with them and use to make portrait sculptures in the future.

*Stands and tools will be provided but students are welcome to bring their own preferred tools if they have them.
