Description

“Art Studio on the Go” workshop series with Artist-in-Residence Ariana Huggett

Participate in this hands-on workshop with our artist-in-residence Ariana Huggett, a Milwaukee-based painter who is spending her residency creating works depicting the interiors and exteriors of our two historic houses – the Charles Allis Art Museum and the Villa Terrace Decorative Arts Museum. In a four-part workshop series, Ariana will demonstrate the fundamentals of creating an “art studio on the go”, appropriate for setting up at a moment’s notice to inspire you to work from life rather than photographs. Each workshop costs $35, but the 4-session series is only $100! Class size is limited; sign up early!

*Please note that the workshop locations rotate between the Charles Allis and Villa Terrace.

WORKSHOP SCHEDULE

March 21 | 6:30-8:00 p.m. | Villa Terrace

Workshop I: Introduction to plein air supplies for oil or acrylic painting

No supplies necessary; in this class, you’ll learn about what you need to begin painting on location. If you already have a painting kit (portable easel, brushes, and paints), bring it and we'll discuss how to use it and/or how to augment it.


April 25 | 6:30-8:00 p.m. | Charles Allis

Workshop II: Preparing to paint – sketching and under-drawing/painting

Bring a sketchbook and pens, pencils, and eraser, or charcoal. Bring your painting kit (discussed in 1st workshop) and a canvas panel or painting surface of your choice if you want to try your hand at making an underpainting in class.


May 23 | 6:30-8:00 p.m. | Villa Terrace

Workshop III: Color and mixing a palette

Bring your paints, palette, palette knife, painting surface, and paint thinner (or water container if acrylics), rags/paper towels, and painting surface (such as a canvas panel). A basic color starter kit includes colors such as: Titanium White, Cadmium Yellow, Cadmium Red, Ultramarine Blue, Quinacridone Red, Phthalo Blue, Phthalo Green, and Burnt Umber, but bring what you have and we'll talk about it!


June 20 | 6:30-8:00 p.m. | Charles Allis

Workshop IV: Painting from life

Bring your sketchbook, drawing implements, and painting kit (everything covered in the first three workshops).
