    1 Day Seminar Methods and Materials of Oil Paints 8/22/09!

    1-day Seminar Methods & Materials of Oil Paints 8/22/09
    Instructor: Steven Saitzyk
    Sat., August 22, 10:00am-5:00pm


    After more than 700 hundred years, oil painting is still the ultimate artist's medium. More than any other artist's medium, knowledge of its materials is the key to unlocking its vast potential for expression. Yet, little comprehensive information is readily available, and what is found is often confusing, contradictory, and even shrouded in mystery and secrecy. This one day intensive seminar on oil painting materials offers the kind of in-depth knowledge necessary to explore and tame this medium. It will cover pigments, the five types of oil paint, mediums, additives, thinners, and varnishes. It will also offer solutions to working safely as well as produce artwork that will last for generations.

    1-Day Meditation for the Artist Seminar Nov. 21st!

    1-Day Meditation for the Artist Seminar 11/21/09

    Instructor: Steven Saitzyk
    Sat., November 21st, 10am-5pm
    $125


    Online Class Registration Deadlines - Don't miss out!

    The creative process is inherently contemplative and naturally benefits from meditation. Meditation enhances not only the creative process but also the viewing process in specific ways—it helps to synchronize mind and body, right and left hemispheres of the brain, and our intuitive and intellectual abilities. The mindfulness and awareness practices found in meditation lead us to rest in our senses so we can glimpse things as they are and enjoy genuine spontaneity and pure, unselfconscious, expression. They also dissolve creative blockages and reveal the source of creativity and inspiration. This one day seminar will teach meditation and offer specific contemplative exercises and activities such as non-objective brush and ink painting designed to further awaken your creative and viewing processes. Instructor: Steven Saitzyk. Adjunct Professor of Humanities and Design Sciences, Art Center College of Design. International Director of Shambhala Art, a nonprofit arts education program designed to integrate meditation into the creative process. See: www.shambhalaart.org. He has completed a Buddhist Seminary and has practiced and taught meditation internationally for more than thirty years.

Glazing can give luminous effects that cannot be achieved by direct painting. It is especially good for painting the translucent and luminous qualities of human flesh. This course is great for those who are new to painting because it begins with the drawing stage and introduces painting in a very methodical and simplified manner. This class is also suitable for intermediate to advanced students who are interested in learning how the Renaissance masters painted and how to make a painting glow. The course will consist of two 5 week paintings, one still-life and one portrait.

    Instructor: Eric Pedersen

    Online Class Registration Deadlines - Don't miss out!

    Whether you have never painted before or consider yourself a more experienced painter, this beginner course is designed to teach you a simple (or perhaps new) way of painting. From the most basic techniques (how to stand, how to mix paint etc.), to descriptions of materials, and to more advanced ideas of comparative measurements, and color harmony this class serves as a guide to basic principles of painting. Based on a method of direct observation the student will begin to understand how to use simple two dimensional shapes (triangles, squares, rectangles, etc.) to create an illusion of a three dimensional object.

    Free Beginning Drawing Class Sat. Febuary 6th.

    Free Beginning Drawing Class Saturday Febuary 6th, 11:00 am - 2:00 pm.

    Online Class Registration Deadlines - Don't miss out!

    This Free Instructed Class is for people who are new to LAAFA, and have never studied with us before (one free class per person). The free drawing class will encourage you to see with your eyes and to draw with your hand. Instruction will be given in simple shading, lighting, core shadows, and learning to draw through an object. This is an excellent opportunity for students with little to no formal drawing training at all. Learning to translate what you see to paper is an exercise that will challenge you in new ways, keeping your brain and your imagination piqued. Come give it a try!
    Bring your 18x24 pad of newsprint, some charcoal, a graphite pencil, a kneaded eraser, your right brain, and enjoy a class on the house. Our hope is that you realize how important art can be in your life, for without it we merely exist.


    More experienced artists can also benefit from one of these classes. Bring along your work, and during the class, our instructor will take some one-on-one time with you to give you a free portfolio review. Find out where you are with your skill level, and where you can go!

    If you want to take this free class, call 818.708.9232!
