NEW WORKSHOPS for Summer 2019!

Creating Custom Collage Papers

Date: Saturday May 25, 2019
Time: 10:00 am to 4:30 one day workshop

Location: NH Institute of Art, Manchester NH
REGISTER HERE


Throughout the workshop, artists will create a diversified series of custom, hand-painted collage papers and tissues that can be later employed into multimedia works. To infuse color, line, shape and pattern, techniques such as dripping, spattering, sponging, rolling, blowing, rubbing, dry brushing, veining, ghosting, blotting, marbling, crinkling, masking, stamping, printing and resist treatments are just some of the processes demonstrated in this creative workshop.





Creating Altered, Repurposed & Custom Painting Tools 

Date: Saturday June 8, 2019
Time: 10:00am to 4:30 one day workshop

Location: NH Institute of Art, Manchester NH

When it comes to creative distinction in mark-making, altering the traditional painting instruments, repurposing tools from myriad disciplines and inventing completely new devices for custom, signature treatments onto the painted surface is at the cutting-edge. By creating and using unconventional tools, artists are expanding the boundaries of artmaking, infusing alternative ways of working into the practice. 












Transforming the Surface

Time: 10:00am to 4:30 two day workshop

Transform the working surface with water media painting techniques! Throughout the workshop, lushly painted passages and rich transitions using acrylic, gouache and ink will be employed onto the abstract painting surface. Fluid techniques such as pouring, dripping, marbling, dissolving and resist treatments as well as creative manipulation of heavily-applied paint and mediums with a painting knife, comb and other non-traditional tools will be employed in this exciting, hands-on workshop.

AUDIO INTERVIEWS

The  audio interview was done in 2009 between illustrator and author Lisa L Cyr and Hall of Fame illustrator Marshall Arisman for an artist profile entitled Content-Driven Approach featured in the book Art Revolution: Alternative Approaches for Fine Artists and Illustrators written by artist and author Lisa L. Cyr and published by North Light Books, an imprint of F+W Media Inc. 

"Over the years, I've had the privilege to speak with Marshall Arisman not only about his creative process and approach but also about the industry at large. His work, words and insights are an inspiration to us all."
