We are excited to welcome back Deb & Glenn Doering as they team-teach this new class that celebrates the 100th year of the Bauhaus, a German art school.
The Bauhaus (founded in 1919) employed innovative use of art & craft materials, including stone, paper, collage, and a variety of color media. Klee and Kandinsky are two well-known artists who taught at the Bauhaus; many women artists also shaped the school. Come and explore Bauhaus people and projects; symmetrical stone painting, simple self-portraits, small basic box-building, worry-free wearable art, precise paper-weaving art, creative collaging! Projects are easily adapted to the skilled and unskilled participant.
All experience levels welcome, Ages 12+
After Glenn and Deborah share how their art practice is related to the materials and principles of the Bauhaus, we will discuss a particular Bauhaus personality, or concept, or material related to the Bauhaus. There will be a featured material, or materials, that will be introduced in each session. We will have several examples of how Bauhaus students incorporated the materials in their work.
The first and third sessions will focus on Bauhaus paper projects and include folding small boxes, weaving paper, collaging, and simple self-portraiture. The second session will feature stone painting and wearable rock art. During the fourth session scissors and x-acto knives will be used to enhance previous projects or create another type of Bauhaus form. The fifth session will be tying together all the “rock, paper, scissor” techniques of the Bauhaus.
Class time will always allow for questions, observations and sharing about the work.
There is no requirement for participants to work outside of class time; however, the studio is open 24 hours and participants are welcome to continue working in the afternoons and evenings if they choose.
Participants will have a choice of the artworks they create, based on which of the Bauhaus-inspired projects interest/inspire them. The quantity depends on how involved each artwork is and the speed with which the participant creates each work.
Here are the project offerings:
1. Small paper boxes
2. Painted river rocks
3. Artworks created from found natural objects
4. Bauhaus-inspired small jewelry
5. Paper weavings
7. Small watercolor paintings
9. Minimalist self-portraiture
10. Embossed/engraved metal foil
What should I bring to class?
Participants are not required to bring anything special for the class. However, if they have a background in the arts, bringing a sketchbook or images of past works and images that inspire them can be helpful to be used as points of departure for creating new works in the class.
