Putting it into Perspective!

By camilla @ 6:53 am

The Wooden Horse Arts Guild is delighted to announce two workshops by WHAG member & North Country Union High School Vsual Arts Teacher Pat Sanders.

“Putting it into Perspective”
Sunday, July 10, 2016       11 am-2pm
Rose Apple Acres Farm
721 East Main St, North Troy, VT
 This workshop will focus on giving students a basic understanding of the principles of linear and atmospheric perspective in order to help them  energize their landscapes with a deeper sense of depth.  Students will be given a  series of drawing exercises designed to strengthen their perceptual skills, gain a working knowledge of linear perspective and explore different points of view. Weather permitting, we will spend some time outdoors sketching a variety of architectural and man-made objects within a landscape setting, concentrating on proportions and depth.
Students should bring: drawing materials, a sketchpad, strait edge (ruler), reference pictures of architectural structures and a stool or chair to sit on while “field sketching”

“Putting Life into your Still Life”
Sunday, July 24, 2016      11 am-2pm
Rose Apple Acres Farm
721 East Main St., North Troy, VT
This class will focus on teaching you how to look at objects and see them like an artist – with a perceptive awareness of their outline, shape, proportions, tone, color, texture, form and composition. Students will be given a series of drawing exercises designed to strengthen their perceptual skills and compositional awareness. Students will learn a  variety of drawing and sketching techniques that can be used to render dynamic and interesting observational studies.
Students should bring: drawing materials, a sketchpad and an object to add to a still life composition.

A Piece of Good News!! from the Vermont Arts Council!

By camilla @ 4:10 pm

 

Heather Stearns is that wonderful potter who makes hand-thrown stoneware pottery at MUDDY CREEK POTTERY in Wolcott. Heather is also a top-notch teacher of pottery.

So, here is the good news!

Congratulations to Heather Stearns of Wolcott, who was added to the Vermont Arts Council’s Teaching Artist Roster earlier this month. The Roster is a great resource for schools applying for Artists in Schools grants. The residencies funded through these grants serve as a model for the integration of the arts into the curriculum and community of a school. The artists completing the residency must be selected from the Roster.

A seven-person panel of experts evaluated eighteen applications and based their selection on the artistic quality of the artist’s personal work, teaching ability, and ability to collaborate with others.

Congratulations!  Heather!  Praise and Accolades!images
