Arkansas Craft School Offers 2 New Classes with Greg Lewallen June and July 2018
Learn from Artist, Entomologist, & Baylor Art Department Lecturer Greg Lewallen
Introduction to Hand Pulled Prints: Drypoint Technique June 30 – July 1, 2018
Chiaroscuro Drawing: Reductive Approach July 7 – 8, 2018
Dramatic Drawing – Chiaroscuro Reductive Approach
Do you like drawings with a dramatic sense of light & depth? Expand your approach to drawing with this technique used by Rembrandt, Vermeer, and other greats with this unique workshop! Students are introduced to basic elements of this dramatic lighting technique and employ a reductive (rather than additive) approach that produces rich tones and textures that cannot be replicated through any other method of rendering. The reductive technique begins by setting a ground of soft charcoal on the drawing surface, then using erasers to create the drawing by establishing the value structure, and finally completing the drawing by rendering details.
Introduction to Hand Pulled Prints: Drypoint
Explore the world of print making! Drypoint is a form of intaglio, similar to engraving. In this workshop, students will learn to create an image by using a stylus to cut into an acrylic plate, which will be inked and polished before printing. The first pulled prints will be proofed for flaws or corrections, then students will print a limited edition of their image on a hand cranked press.
Greg Lewallen is an artist, entomologist, and art department lecturer at Baylor University. He finds inspiration in some of creation’s smallest creatures, believing their diversity and intricate details display some of God’s finest work.
We are delighted to welcome Greg to the ACS family . . . please join us for these two new courses at ACS this summer.
