January 2013 Workshops

Sandra Kaplan’s

January 2013 Studio Workshops

Two special workshops will be held in my St. Francis de Sales Studio in January.

Thursday, January 10, 2013, 10 AM to 4:30 PM
Fee: $75

We will discuss a bit of the history of collage as an artists’ medium, and experiment with a number of collage techniques. Understanding the difference between collage as a craft medium versus collage as a medium for artistic expression will be included in our conversation.

A supply list will be emailed when I receive your check, which also reserves your spot in the class.

Thursday, January 24, 2013, 10 AM to 4:30 PM
Fee: $75

A prerequisite to this class is my Josef Albers’ based color class, either at the ASLD or in my studio.  In those classes, we worked with colored papers to understand visual color phenomena. Now, we will discuss color mixing, and do a structured series of painting exercises, in your preferred medium, to develop mastery of color and color mixing. Exercises will enhance your understanding of Hue, Value, and Saturation.

A supply list will be emailed when I receive your check, which also reserves your spot in the class.
And don't forget to register for one of the remaining spots in my Provence, France, workshop, October 2-12, 2013!

Collage, Plein Air Paintings Around Town

My work is scattered around town, and beyond, this month.

I was the juror of the "Own An Original" show at the Littleton Museum, 6028 South Gallup Street, Littleton, Colorado, 303-795-3950. The show will be on display through January 13. A large number of very talented, if conservative, artists applied for the desirable honor of a one person show at the Museum. The top prize went to Rogers Naylor.

Three of my Plein Air paintings are on display in this exhibit.

Aum Gallery and Framing, 2227 East Colfax, 303-394-3362, is displaying its 2012 Miniature Show through December 29, 2012, 303-394-3362. Three of my small collages are included in this Lilliputian exhibit. The collage pictured above is one of the three.

The Art Students League of Denver has an incredibly amusing show titled,"The Joy Of Toys". A small watercolor of our dog, Elgee, using one of his favorite toys as a pillow, is at the ASLD, 200 Grant Street, 303-778-6990, through January 23.

If you plan on a trip to the mountains, until about December 28, my Plein Air Vail Valley Workshop students from this past summer have some beautiful paintings remaining in The Mile Radio Station lobby,  Main Street in Minturn, 970-827-9400.

And of course, many more works of art are available in my studio, which is open by appointment.
