Saturday, January. 27,
1-6pm, Meet the Artist & Wine/Cheese reception
5-6 PM Janis will read some excerpts from her memoir, “White Roses”
Janis Pryor has been formally studying art since the age of 13. She attended the High School of Music & Art in New York City and was an art major at Bennington College. She focused on color field painting, drawing and architecture.She took a thirty year hiatus of professional employment in politics and media returning to her first loves of art and writing several years ago. In 2004, she began exploring pastels as a medium for abstract expression. This medium inadvertently became a vehicle for her grief over the loss of the love of her life in 2007. Countless numbers of work
accompanied her as she wrote, White Roses…a memoir, holding the impossible, a love story before and after death.

Watercolor Monotype w/Japanese Paper February 10, 2018
With Melanie Barash Levitt Non-toxic watercolor monoprinting is a dynamic art form combining the colorful palette and radiant flow of watercolors with an unusual diversity of beautiful and compelling techniques unique to this process. In this class we will use the chin-collé process incorporating Japanese papers with the printmaking process. Chine-collé is a special technique in printmaking in which the image is transferred to a surface that is bonded to a heavier support in the printing process.This allows you to print on the delicate surface of Japanese papers which pulls finer detail off the plate or also allows you to provide a colored background color behind the image. Students will also learn proper use of an etching press, the correct numbering and signing of your prints, plus different approaches to the medium with emphasis on double plate printing of foliage with chin-collé. Watercolor washes on the plate’s impermeable surface allows for a floating of color in a way no other medium can. You will also be taught how to do watercolor monotypes at home without a press. This exciting process loosens artistic tightness, inspires confidence and expands creativity. You need not have previous experience in either watercolors or printmaking to achieve beautiful results. A materials fee is included in the class cost and includes a set of watercolors specific to this process, 8 sheets of printmaking paper, two printing plates, use of class materials and Japanese papers. (limit of 6 people) Deadline for sign up, Feb 3.

Silver Jewelry Design February 20, 2018
Silver Metal clay is made from fine silver powder with a binder and water. When fired in a kiln to just below the melting point the binder burns out and all the particles of silver fuse together. Only pure silver remains. The focus of this class will be to make 2 pendants in silver metal clay and learn how to bezel set a stone. Because Metal clay is a soft material before it is fired it is ideal for surface treatment. We will be using interesting textures and designs to create one of a kind jewelry and incorporate a stone. A materials fee of $75 will be payable to the instructor at the class. The second class will be finishing and assembling.
