Adult Classes | Virtual Learning


This is an online class.
The challenge for this course is Transforming the Ordinary into Extraordinary! What is the Ordinary? That is your choice. You select what you LOVE and let the watercolors work the magic! Learn how to paint the effects of strong lighting and how to use tone and color in your painting. When you paint from your own photos you will feel the connection and bring your painting to life. Please select a photo with a strong light or one that we can add strong light effects. When painting light we also have beautiful shadows and contrasting darks.
You will see demonstrations in every class, throughout the class plus one-on-one help as requested. You have the choice of painting either on 140#, 300# paper. If you want to attach your paper to a cradled paper, please contact me for a short video.
All classes start with a critique. You will also be invited to join the Art Larger than Life Critiques on Zoom. There will also be an opportunity to join a Zoom with questions regarding your planned painting and discuss color and composition.

Students will be sent Zoom login information from the instructor. A recording of each class will be available for students to view for two weeks after the final meeting date.

Class will not meet on November 25 (Thanksgiving).

Andy's process for using crystalline glazes puts a high emphasis on consistency and efficiency without sacrificing beauty. Glaze catchers are not needed and there are no surprises when he opens the kiln. Andy will share 4 of his recipes, how he applies the glaze, what firing schedule he uses and other helpful tips. The workshop will include a lecture by Andy, a demonstration and an opportunity for you to glaze two of his mugs and take them home with you. No secret will be held back and you will be able to ask whatever you want! The workshop will also include a printed hand out.
Ages 17 and up.

Andy first learned Ceramics from his father, Ray Boswell, a production potter born out of the American Arts and Crafts Tradition. Andy continued his education at the Rochester Institute of Technology and learned from Rick Hirsch, Julia Galloway and Liz Howe. After college Andy met Phil Hamling, a Ceramic Engineer who had a strong interest in Crystalline Glazes and a more scientific approach. Phil was Andy's mentor and provided the foundation needed to bring everything together and do what he does now.
