PAINTING WORKSHOPS

Gemini School is pleased to announce the revival of Painting Workshops, our ongoing workshops for adult artists. If you are an artist looking for Artist Professional Development, or you are an amateur artist looking to improve your skills and learn new ones, these workshops are for you! Come and enjoy the thrill of color and learn to paint like the masters! You’ll paint your chosen subject – figure, still life, landscape – under the supervision of two internationally acclaimed fine artists: Roger Barcilon, Chief Academic Officer, and Fatmir Gjevukaj, Associate Dean of Instruction at Gemini School. They will provide you with tips, tricks, techniques and personal instruction based on your current skill level and you will acquire a valuable set of new skills for your personal use.

Roger and Fatmir kick off the program with a series of four painting sessions to be held from 6pm to 9pm on consecutive Thursday evenings starting April 25, 2019. The workshops will involve a demo on the first class and plenty of “getting your hands dirty” to follow.

Please do not hesitate to call 512-249-0187 or email info@geminischool.com if you have any questions.

SESSION #1

3 consecutive weeks from April 25, 2019 to May 9, 2019

GRISAILLE

(pronounced grizz-eye from the French for grey)

“In this first workshop we will be concentrating on the technique of “Grisaille” in acrylic. This is a fantastic way to produce a painting quickly and effectively. I know you’ll enjoy the class and use this exciting method of painting many times in the future,” Roger Barcilon.

The grisaille method was first practiced by Flemish artists in the early 15th century. Grisaille can be used in any color although shades of grey or brown are more common. The technique was common among the artists of the early Renaissance. Using the grisaille technique, the values are all worked out before any color is added. The next step is to add color, which makes the painting take on a life of its own with changes happening very quickly because you don’t have to concentrate quite so much on the values as they are already mapped out.

3 consecutive weeks from May 16, 2019 to May 30, 2019

FIGURE PAINTING WITH A MODEL

Join us for a three-week journey into Figure painting with a live model: a hands-on approach to painting the figure in acrylics using a live model; this session teaches you to paint the human form in all its complexities using human anatomy, color mixing, translating color into value and tone. You will learn to master the figure and use observational skills to see what is in front of you while trying to capture the essence of the figure rather than applying lines and shapes for the sake of composition. Some prior figure painting/drawing experience recommended but not necessary as all are welcome to experiment and explore.

SESSION #3

4 consecutive weeks from June 6, 2019 to June 27, 2019

LANDSCAPE PAINTING

Join us for a four-week journey into landscape painting with the palette knife. Knives are ideally suited for use in acrylic paintings of architectural or man-made subjects. This exciting technique forces the painter to loosen up, focusing on shapes and colors while letting the colors and values tell the story on canvas. This technique gives your work an impasto surface, allowing greater dimension and a life-like quality. In this class we’ll work with one straight edge knife. A certain amount of detail will require a brush.
