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.

 

Instructor: 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.

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.

 

Instructor: Scott Dressel-Martin, official photographer of the Denver Botanic Gardens

Special Instructions: This class will begin inside and then move out into the Gardens.

Screen Print Fabric Workshop

Bold lines, hand drawn type, whimsical illustrations or an image you bring to trace over are all the perfect ingredients for creating your own 1-color screen print stencil on fabric. Participants create their own images (we’ll bring some books for inspiration), expose a screen using the sun and while it’s drying see a short print demonstration. After some screen prep, print your image on the flat fabric items you bring. What to bring: Up to 5 fabric items; anything flat (without lots of texture, zippers, pockets): tshirts, tea towels, pillow cases, aprons, tote bags, etc. Natural fibers and cotton/poly blends work best. Because you will be printing the same 1-color on all the items, it’s best if items are all light or dark colors so you can choose an ink color that works on all.

 

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