Description

KATHRYN STATS WORKSHOP

“WORKING WITH SHAPES AND PATTERNS”

WAYNE ART CENTER PLEIN AIR FESTIVAL AND EXHIBITION

OCTOBER 12-NOVEMBER 14, 2020

This class is designed for intermediate to advanced students who have had experience working in plein air.

Focus will be on designing the large patterns in terms of value (dark to light).

Developing these shapes into color and keeping the color true to the value they represent.

Emphasis will be on:

Rearranging value patterns to produce a stronger design

Simplifying shapes and minimizing the number of values to keep design strong>

The number of values and percentage of each of those values in relationship to total mass are key to a strong painting.

Applying color within defined value boundaries

Day 1

Kathryn will demo

Class will plan subject matter and rearrange patterns by doing numerous value studies as thumbnail drawings, using limited number of values.

After choosing strongest pattern for a motif, a value painting (black & white) will follow. (6x8)

Day 2

From the thumbnails and value studies done on day one, students will choose the strongest designs and move on to working up a color paintings in which the colors match exactly the grey scale value work up from the 1st day.
This painting should be smaller than 11 x 14 and be in the same ratio as the original grey scale.
(6 x 8= 3-4 ratio, such as 9x 12).
Plan on bringing enough panels to work on 2 or more pieces.
We are not looking for the great American paintings here, just learning the basic value/color patterns that make a strong design.

Day 3

If a different location is chosen, we will repeat the same process as on days 1 and 2.
Group “show and tell” will be held the last hour of class. This is not so much as a critique as simply show and tell.
Note: often, after mid day break, when the students are feeling tired, Kathryn will demo or do a color mixing presentation, using a variety of 3 color combinations to show how that works.
