    welcome to the workshopWelcome to the Creative Workshop, Rochesters art school! In your hands is the 2012 Spring-Summer

    catalog of classes for all ages and experience levels, in a wide range of media. The brochure opens with

    our classes for children and teens, including half-day classes as well as our full-day Art Day School

    program. Adult classes follow with both daytime and evening courses.

    As you explore this catalog, imagine the possibilities!

    For those who have been hesitant, maybe its time to thaw those barriers to creativity and finally take a class

    at the Creative Workshop. (Remember when art class was the highlight of your school day?)

    For those who are already active, maybe its time to test your wings and try out a new medium.

    (One-time classes are perfect for that!)

    Or, maybe its time to tackle that nagging feeling, Whats so great about this or that painting? and take a class in art appreciation.

    For more than 80 years students of all ages and experience levels have found the Creative Workshops classes the perfect place to stretch their

    imaginations and gather new art-making skills. There are more than 160 classes offered between April and August, and if you need help finding

    just the right course for you or your child, please give us a call at 276-8959, or email us at [email protected]

    We also always promise a warm and helpful welcome if you stop by in person. Several times a year, our Open Houses are an especially good time

    to see all we have to offer. We hope to see you at the next one, on March 24 from 11 am to 4 pm!

    Short course! Your little one will practice following clear step-by-step directions, making the color and shape deci-sions all artists make, and using tools like paint brushes, glue and sponges. Most classes include a visit to the Gallery and all projects are based on kid-friendly themes that change with each new session.

    Fee: $80 (members $72)

    Why sign your child or teen up for art classes at the Creative Workshop? Because theyll learn, have fun and grow. Our classes teach the technical skills of drawing, painting, ceramics and jewelry making while encouraging kids to recognize their natural talents and creative strengths. We rarely tell kids what to draw, but rather help them figure out how to draw what they want.

    Our teachers continually challenge kids to try new materi-als and ideas while enjoying the freedom of creation. Most

    classes go into the Gallery at least once a session, to draw, look and discuss art. They leave inspired, excited and with a greater understanding of the cultures and histories that influence us all.

    Classes are listed by age grouping and subject matter. To accommodate childrens busy lives our classes are sched-uled at a variety of times. Call us at 276-8959 and we can help you find the right class for your child.

    JewelryLearn to make your own jewelry! Learning to use fine saws for metal and other specialized equipment can take time, but students who take jewelry classes tell us that they were amazed they could learn to set a stone, or make an enam-eled pendant, all while laughing and meeting new friends.

    Our instructors are professional jewelers and teachers who understand the creative and practical concerns that go into every piece of hand-made jewelry.

    To sample what is possible, try one of our Quick Jewelry series (next page). Often, though, students tell us that one or two classes are not enough! The best classes to start with, if you have little or no experience, are Beginning Jewelry or (A Fast) Beginning (essentially a shortened ver-sion of Beginning Jewelry, with fewer projects.

    Short classes in specialized techniques (such as soldering) can help you add techniques to your toolbox and allow you to make the magical things you want to make.

    We may offer other short classes not listed in this catalog. For the latest, visit mag.rochester.edu/creativeworkshop or call 276.8959.

    Goya Portraiture [taught by Sue Nurse]32987 One Wednesday, 10:30 amnoon, March 21 OR 32988 One Wednesday, 7:309 pm, March 21Sandwiched between his historical and mythical paintings and his prints, Goyas portraiture could have been the dull-est part of his oeuvre. Not so! Goya was the portraitist to the king and his family, though how he kept the job, given the stark reality of his portraits of them, is a puzzle. (Maybe they thought their looks were pleasant?) His Clothed Maja and Naked Maja are still raising eyebrows, and his true relationship with the model is in question to this day.

    Representing the British School of the 19th century, Gainsboroughs portraits coincide with but are different from French painters Watteau and Claude Lorrain. Conveying beauty of form and dress while imbuing his sit-ters with a life force, Gainsboroughs portraits rise above mere decoration.

    Reimagining the Universe: Remedios Varo [taught by Lucy Durkin]32993 One Wednesday, 10:30 amnoon, June 6

    Imagine you could change anything about the world you wantnot just changing people, or politics, or economics, but changing the world itself. Imagine you could redesign the entire fabric of the universe and suspend and reinvent the laws of science. One Spanish-born artist who lived and worked in MexicoRemedios Varodid just that. Her paint-ings are endlessly imaginative, magical and seemingly fun, but have deeper and more challenging thoughts that under-lay the easy and pleasant surface impressions.
