MCAL Fall 2014 Workshop - November 1st

Linda Hutchinson Presenting Artist
Using Value to Punctuate and Strengthen Your Drawings and Painting

This one-day workshop will focus on using value, both local and altered, to affect the mood of a given drawing or painting on November 1, 2014. Although we will be drawing at this session, the value lessons are easily transferable to paintings. In the morning we will be working on a still life with objects that each artist will bring for him/herself. In the afternoon, we will work from vintage photographs. My goal is to help each artist assess ways to improve upon drawing from reality using the design elements and principles, as well as to consider value as a key ingredient for creating a specific mood in the work.

MCAL Season Closes With a Field Trip Featuring, Elaine Lamb

Award Winning Potter/Ceramicist Elaine Lamb will host the May 19th meeting of the Medina County Art lambLeague at her art studio: 721 South Court Street in Medina, Ohio!

Our own MCAL member Elaine Lamb has been a professional potter for over 35 years. She has worked in several studio settings, including owning a successful studio/gallery in Medina’s historic district. She currently divides her time between her sky-lit studio called “Mudmother’s” in Medina, Ohio and her North Carolina Mountain retreat where she has a second home and studio.

Elaine works independently, creating each piece one at a time by hand from start to completion of the process. This studio freedom has allowed her to focus her creative energy and spirit on her art. Elaine also continues expanding her knowledge by taking classes at the Cleveland Art Institute and Penland School of Crafts.

7:00 Short General Meeting followed by light refreshments.
7:30-7:45 Elaine will present her program!

This meeting is open to members, guests and visitors.
