Easy Drawing in the Gardens

 

 

Make drawing easier with a simpler, logical, structural approach. Learn basics of perspective, composition control, and methods to capture forms through simplification and reference points and lines. This approach is very sculptural in nature; you begin large and basic, finishing with details. Using this method will make drawing easier and more fun.

Mitch Caster teaches drawing at the Art Students League of Denver, and before that, at Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design. He started his career as a news artist and courtroom illustrator. Mitch now works as a fine artist and shows his paintings in galleries in Colorado, New Mexico and Texas.

Garden-Ink: Screenprint Poster Workshop

Taking inspiration from the bold visuals and large typography of traditional victory garden and gig/music posters, you will design and screenprint 5, 2-color large prints of your own. The first session will be an overview of the screenprint process, pulling a test print and discussing what elements make a successful poster; then you’ll dig in creating your distinct motivational graphics. The second session is all about getting inky; aligning and printing each color to bring your final 2-color large print to life.

Nicky Alden is a graphic designer, screenprinter and partner at Ink Lounge, the Denver screenprint studio offering commercial printing services and screenprint workshops for all ages, and often sharing the wisdom “if it’s flat and doesn’t move, you can print on it.”

Photographing Sculpture

Find the best vantage points and opportunities to photograph this seasons Stories in Sculpture art exhibition at Denver Botanic Gardens.

When photographing artwork we photographers are torn between faithfully rendering the work, or re-interpreting the work to our own creative ends. In this class we will try both approaches to see how our personal vision can visually redefine someone else’s original work of art. We will venture out into the gardens to capture images in the beautiful evening light.
