Abstract Painting: Series as a Process
May 4-7, 2014 (9am-4pm) — When we say "abstract painting", we usually mean a painting that is not in the business of representing an object outside itself. It can evoke mood or suggest specific reference, but it can also be about painting itself. In this workshop we'll focus on the elements of visual language - line, shape, color, texture, pattern, value, etc. - and explore how these elements relate to one another within the context of a painting. You will learn a variety of playful and accessible techniques for applying paint to paper, and discover how to create variety, contrast, layering and rhythm, to make unique, personal abstract compositions. We'll be working in acrylic paint, collage, and various drawing media. Visit website

Finding Your Own Direction Through Freedom and Expression
May 19-23, 2014 (9am-4pm) — My painting process is based on working in reverse, and out of time with our thoughts. This class is not about painting a specific thing or outcome. It's more about how we create that is important... changing direction rather than following a preconceived idea. If something is not working out it can often be far more productive to drop it and start over then forcing broken pieces together. Once we realize this, our ability to learn becomes less painful and limitless. When mistakes are just encounters to be corrected, learned from, or left as the perfect accident, we learn not to fight or fear our actions. We expect less and get more. Visit website

Nesting: A Mixed Media Autobiography
May 28-30, 2014 (9am-4pm) — I work with found materials, the stuff of the everyday that is often overlooked and discarded. This workshop will replicate my process of collage using your own materials and memories. Each individual will bring to the workshop a bird's nest. This nest will be photographed and studied for its formal properties. The individual will then create a 2D representation from the collage materials that are collected and brought to the workshop. I suggest, old letters, notes, movie stubs, wrapping paper, garment tags, receipts, etc. This is the material that represents our individual histories. Instead of storing these items where they are rarely seen, a work of art can be created that tells a personal story and is enjoyed daily. Visit website

Activating Negative Space
June 24-27, 2014 (10 - 5 on first day, then 9 - 4 with a one hour lunch) — Through drawing, collage and painting on paper, students will be guided through an exciting hands on process of learning the key lesson of modern art - activating the negative space - to create images that are both representational and dynamically abstract. One day of intensive drawing from still life and one day of collage will then lead to two days of painting with a model. These final sessions will be playful events of integrating ideas and techniques from the first two days into new works where the figure is an element of a composition rather than a complete "subject matter" in itself. Step-by-step projects will lead to surprising results in an atmosphere of fun and discovery. Lots of individual attention provided. Visit website

Texture - Color - Feeling
August 11-14, 2014 (9am-4pm) — By combining aggressive textures and unusual mediums with various "raw" materials the end result in abstract painting is the creative accomplishment. This method presents the magnetism that is the abstraction to mixed media. Many techniques, materials, compositions and, above all, emotion play off of each other when creating the piece. There is adventure in not knowing where you are going with it until you get there! You will become enlightened as you journey through this process. You must be able to let go of all painting habits to gain the knowledge of layering textures, color and feelings. Executing shapes by utilizing positive and negative space will be discussed.

Oil and Cold Wax Painting: Beneath the Surface
August 18-20, 2014 (9am-4pm) — Explore the technique of combining oil paint and cold wax.

You will use an array of non-traditional tools to build layers and add depth. This class emphasizes the process and is experimental in nature. The intuitive process encourages students to loosen up and explore. Students will learn from detailed demonstrations, instruction, and individual exploration of the techniques and materials.

Big Fat Art
September 8-11, 2014 (9am-4pm) — Big Fat Art is all about process, and about working on multiple pieces. We start on big fat cheap drawing paper with inexpensive paints and drawing materials so that you can't possibly worry about Wasting Good Paint. We work on multiple pieces at once, starting each one using specific materials within given parameters. Then we do another "pass" on all of them, with a different set of parameters. After the second pass, we use the pieces-in-process as playgrounds for trying many different things. Loosening up is key. Then, we move on to good paper. We start the pieces in a similar spontaneous mode, but work on them longer, and make the effort to bring them to resolution. Visit website

Matchbox Structure Workshop
September 22-24, 2014 (9am-4pm) — Using matchboxes, colorful papers, beads and a bit of sewing, we will make a multiple-drawer/handmade book structure. We will begin by decorating our matchboxes with paper and constructing 6 small drawers and 6 miniature books. On top of that we will make a shallow box to house a square, handmade book. To top it all off we will make a decorative lid for the structure, layering paper and finishing with a paper knob for easy removal. We will make colorful, paper sphere "feet" to finish it off. The result is a self-contained conversation piece that will invite viewers to take a closer look inside. Randi pre-cuts most of the materials for the class and provides excellent hand-outs.

Surface Explorations (Mixed Media Workshop)
September 22-26, 2014 (9am-4pm) — Think of this workshop as a buffet! We'll spend the week exploring a large subset of processes that can be used on paper and fabric - all of which should be in every mixed media artist's toolbox. These include photocopy solvent transfers, paper and metal leaf lamination, gilding, water media crayons, a French process called "devoré" - which literally "burns out" cellulose fiber when it is combined with synthetic paper or cloth, and the unexpected beauty of sanding into dry paint to generate gorgeous distressed surfaces. Our mantra will be "what if?" and our goal will be a distinctive visual vocabulary. Visit website
