Tim Yaeger Painting Workshop Paducah School of Art and Design

Tim Jaeger

Color and Expression: Paint What You Love

Tim Jaeger was raised in Paducah, Kentucky, and earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Ringling College of Art + Design, Sarasota, Florida. Since graduating in 2002, Jaeger has continued to maintain his Sarasota studio while engaging the community in numerous projects and fostering new artistic partnerships through his role as Campus and Community Engagement Manager at Ringling College of Art + Design. Jaeger’s paintings can be found in numerous public and private collections both in the United States and abroad.

Through demonstration, studio time, and individual attention, the focus of this workshop is to provide the “tools” and techniques for students to realize their individual creative process in order to take their art to the next level. Tim will cover color theory in the simplest of terms to understand values, review a variety of approaches to underpainting and glazing techniques, and pursue a loose application of paint through the use of brushes and mixed media. Everyone learns differently and Tim works with each student to help them to define their own style. Because many painters seek ways of “loosening up” we will explore numerous techniques to move beyond our comfort zones. Students will acquire new knowledge of products and techniques along with new found confidence in their painting practice. Acrylic and oil painters welcome. No experience necessary.

Tuition is $290

Bryan Czibesz July 31, August 1-4 DIY Ceramic and Culinary 3D Printers

This workshop explores the construction and use of an extrusion-based ceramic or culinary 3d printer that can be integrated into existing studio practices. Each participant will begin by building their own DIY 3d printer from parts and an open-source knowledge base. We will then develop digital design strategies that allow us to return to working directly with clay, combining 3d printed parts with thrown, hand built, and/or cast additions. Each participant will take home their own printer, providing the opportunity to integrate digital technologies into their studio practice and curricula. Printer cost and clay fee is $575 in addition to tuition. The printer build size is approximately 20” in diameter and 40” tall.

This workshop focuses on the expressive and gestural aspects of porcelain in the creation of utilitarian vessels. Demonstrations will include work that is thrown and immediately altered off the wheel. Thick slip will also be used to express yet another kind of line that highlights the material in a different way. It is this exploration of line, gesture and movement that continues to open new doors to express and reveal the gestural qualities inherent in the material. The class will cover many areas of vessel making, including the functional and aesthetic choices that lead to a better understanding of material, and the generation of new ideas and processes.

Woven Shibori

Robin Haller specializes in digital design and weaving. She is an Associate Professor and the coordinator of the Textile Design Program at East Carolina University, School of Art and Design, in Greenville, NC. Robin’s weavings have been exhibited internationally and she has received multiple grants to pursue her research in digital design and weaving. Among other awards and recognition for her work, Robin has received the Best in Show Award in Complexity 2016, Illinois, and two-time Best of Show Award in Fiber Celebration, Colorado. She currently shares time between her hometown of Cleveland, Ohio, and Greenville, North Carolina

Traditional Shibori allows the artist to weave a controlled resist into a fabric prior to dyeing. Rows of running stitches are sewn into the woven fabric, then pulled tight and the fabric dyed. The folds in the cloth resist dye and the pattern is revealed upon removing the stiches and opening the cloth. With Woven Shibori, the fabric is woven on the loom and an additional pattern weft is woven into the cloth. Like the running stitches of Shibori, these pattern wefts are pulled tight and the folds in the cloth serve to resist dye and yield the resulting patterns. Students will learn to measure yard usage, read a weaving draft, and how to prepare a loom, along with immersion dyeing techniques.

Working with both traditional and alternative materials – silver, copper, wire, recycled materials and found objects – participants will fashion objects of personal importance, expression, and adornment. We will also investigate the use of color and collage as a design tool. Through demonstrations, lectures, and hands-on projects, we’ll discover the many methods of selection, integration, and assembly inherent to this limitless range of materials. The class will be centered around lectures and demonstrations, with plenty of time for individual attention.

Rimas VisGirda July 7-9 Screenprinting Decals for Ceramics, Glass and Enamel In this hands-on workshop, participants will convert images into silk-screens and use screen printing techniques to print on any flat surface. Participants will have an opportunity to print directly onto clay, glass or enamel and will receive a screen and squeegee for later use to create their own decals. Decals may be applied and fired onto ceramics, as well as enameled metal and glass, or to any smooth surface as a non-fired decorative element. Discussion and demonstration includes multi-color printing and color separation. The course is designed to be “low-tech”, allowing participants to continue printing at home or studio. These same techniques apply to multiple other applications. Ceramic experience is not required.
