Life Drawing Fridays at OSA

Life Drawing Open Studio at OSA
Fridays, 10 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., downstairs studio
$15 per session

This Friday’s Long-term Pose Model:  Kira

There is nothing like working from a live model to strengthen your figure drawing or painting skills.  When you practice regularly,  the knowledge and understanding you gain informs all of your other work, whether or not you end up with a finished piece.

Work on the whole figure, focus on problem areas, or do a portrait if you prefer.  Bring your own art materials; easels, benches, and tables are provided. 

This is a drop-in, uninstructed group working from unclothed models.  All skill levels welcome. 

For more information, please contact:

Journal Making with Marilyn Zornado

Marilyn Zornado Comes to OSA
 
An Artists Journal with Calligraphy
Thursdays March 2 - April 28
1 - 4pm Downstairs
$200 8/weeks
Materials Fee $25

An Artist’s Journal serves as an informal path for artists to sharpen their skills as they reflect on daily life.

We will explore several types of artist journals such as a writing a daily poem or a daily sketch, recording a trip, documenting the birds or plants you find.  A good journal combines the skills of the illustrator, the calligrapher, the writer, the bookbinder, the graphic designer, the poet, the researcher, and the travel writer.

 With a focus on how to incorporate your own art practice into a journal format, we will cover: basic bookbinding skills, (so you can make your own journals,) calligraphy techniques, page design, and writing skills.

Meet Marilyn Zornado 
A calligrapher, book artist and animator, Marilyn combines her love of travel with her skills as calligrapher, book artist and animator, to create artist journals. She is the co-author of “The Longest Beach, An Eccentric Guide to the Washington’s Long Beach Peninsula,” and author of “Pen Land, An Inky Adventure.” Marilyn holds a BA in Graphic Design and MFA in Computer Animation.

Free Demonstration at OSA

Nicole Poole
Calligraphy & Hand Lettering: Drawn & Quartered

2nd THURSDAY DEMO    Feburary 9, 11 am
Doors open at 10am. Demo at 11am
Buffet Lunch at 12:15pm

In this demo Nicole Poole will show a variety of calligraphic lettering made with different nibs and explain the basic fundamentals of lettering and how an alphabet behaves. She will dissect an alphabet and simplify the strokes, drawing them out and explaining how this dissection can be replicated in many lettering styles, to understand any alphabet the world over. By simplifying letters into a few basic repeating strokes, an entire alphabet becomes accessible to the aspiring calligrapher.

Nicole Poole is a visual artist, calligrapher and maker of things. She is an awarded California Arts Scholar who enjoys studying, teaching and showing her work in the Northwest and along the Pacific Coast. She found her love of calligraphy at a young age and lettering often finds its way into her art and illustrations. She has written and made several books of stories that she illustrated and lettered by hand. Nicole can be found sharing her wealth of knowledge at Muse Art & Design where she is passionate about connecting fellow artists with the right products to make their work a success.
