Color Mixing Workshop at Lakeshore Art Supplies in Sheboygan, WI.

On Saturday, February 25th from 1-3pm, I’ll be conducting a color mixing workshop at Lakeshore Art Supplies!

If you’ve just begun painting, no matter the medium, you probably have noticed how tricky it can be to get the color in your mind down on your paper or canvas.

This workshop will take you through some basic color exercises (using acrylic paints) that will help you personalize your color use beyond those straight from the paint tube.

It is not necessary to bring any materials, however if you would like to try these exercises with your own paints, do feel free to bring them. 

All materials for this workshop, as well as aprons, are provided.

The workshop takes place at:

 Lakeshore Art Supplies, 1109n. 8th Street, Sheboygan, WI 53081.

Panel Production Lab

Cost: $40.00 per person, per session. Includes all necessary materials. 

Session 1: Wednesday August 24th Session 2: Wednesday September 7th

Location: Liz Ann Lange Art, (inside Landmark Suites) 604 Erie Ave., Lower Level Sheboygan WI 53081.

Details:
Using MDF, pine boards, and tools and equipment on site, you will have the opportunity to draft, cut, and construct your own cradled panels to be used as a surface for painting. (You will still need to prime them before using as a painting surface.)

Each attendee will be provided up to 2 sheets of MDF measuring 2×4 feet. 

You may determine your own sizes you wish your panels to be.

You will draft cut lines, operate power hand saws to cut the panels to size, check measurements, miter the cradle boards using a tabletop circular saw, and glue and clamp your panels. If your work cannot be finished within the given time of the lab, we will set up a time and day for you to return and finish the work at your leisure for no extra charge.

Various saws and some safety gear such as safety glasses, dust masks, and foam ear plugs will be provided. No loose clothing, scarves, jewelry or open toed shoes please. Long hair should be worn tied back neatly. 

Please remember : Your safety is your primary responsibility. 

*Always be extremely cautious when operating power tools. I will not be accountable for any personal injuries in the studio. Injuries are a result of blatant disregard for common sense safety practices. You will be expected to sign a statement regarding this in order to participate.*

Space is extremely limited so that everyone will have quality time with the tools and equipment.

In Tandem

May 9 – June 13, 2013

Reception for the Artists: May 16,  5-8pm with an artist talk at 6pm.

In Tandem will feature works from two artists who share similar formative backgrounds, influences, and environments expressed through varying degrees of interpretation.

While attending Lakeland College from 2006 to 2010, Liz Ann Lange and Sara Willadsen both began incorporating architecture and views of Sheboygan County within their studio practices.

Working primarily in oils, Lange has continued to build upon her direct explorations of the community’s hidden spaces and unglorified tableaus, documenting her observations without bias or pretenses.

Willadsen employs mixed media to indirectly reference these same scenes by breaking them down to their formal parts and putting more focus on the physical materials that make up the work itself, resulting in suggestions of invented spaces.

Through color, composition, and perspective, Lange and Willadsen both create works guided by structural characteristics and ephemera encountered in the Sheboygan area.

Down To The Wire

Yesterday and today, I am printing some cards as a last-minute idea of something I can put into the Sheboygan Visual Artist’s annual holiday show and sale. The deadline is Wednesday!
And I wouldn’t be myself if I had no idea what to do until the final days of the call for art.
I’m heading back to the Art Factory soon, to finish what I started yesterday.
I am glad to have access to the open workspace there, because even when it comes to printing small cards, my apartment just doesn’t have the space to spread out and work efficiently.
