PAINTING AND DRAWING ON CLAYBOARD   CANCELLED
14 years and older
SATURDAY AND SUNDAY OCTOBER 18 & 19 
11am-5pm each day
Location: Healdsburg Center for the Arts
Instructor: Lissa Herschleb
Claybord is a thin archival surface of clay baked onto hardboard. It is a very forgiving surface to work on and accepts all water media, pencil, charcoal, collage etc. Oil is not recommended.   If you want to try something new,refine your water media skills, you definitely want to sign up for this workshop.  Clayboard is an amazing surface you can wipe, sand, scratch as well as eliminate everything and start over. Water media hits the surface in unexpected ways and practically gives you an interesting start to a piece! It works beautifully with pencil.
Each student artist will be assisted individually by Lissa.
Lissa Herschleb has been a professional practicing water media artist for 37 years. Claybord has been her substrate ever since it was introduced to her five years ago. Her studio is in San Rafael. She has traveled the country for years showing her work, advising and nurturing many and now, for the first time, teaching in place.

viewlPAINTING WORKSHOP WITH GEORGE SCRIBNER
Instructor: George Scribner
Saturday and Sunday, November 8 & 9
Time: 10am – 4pm each day
Location: Healdsburg Center
for the Arts
Open to beginners as well as experienced painters.  The class will be taught with water based oil paints.  Using a basic set of supplies and a limited palette of colors you will learn a step by step approach to oil painting, from simple drawing tips to mixing a full range of colors using a small set of colors and using warm and cool colors to create depth in your paintings.
I was born and raised in Panama City, Republic of Panama and in 1977 moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in animation. After working at various animation houses, I joined Walt Disney Feature Animation as a character animator in 1983.
After animating on various projects, I directed Oliver and Company, a full length animated feature that was released in 1988. Following Oliver, I worked as a concept and story artist on numerous projects including The Lion King, Fantasia Continued and Dinosaur.
I am currently a contractor at Walt Disney Imagineering as a concept artist and Animation Director. Over the last ten years I’ve directed various animated projects including Mickey’s Philharmagic, Aladdin’s Magic Lamp in Tokyo and the Gran Fiesta Concert at Epcot starring the Three Caballeros. My Disneyland paintings are in the Disneyland Gallery on Main Street in California, The Disneyland Hotel Lobby and at The Art of Disney at Walt Disney World.
I’ve been commissioned by the Republic of Panama to paint large scale oil paintings of the upcoming Panama Canal Expansion – a nine year project. I will be painting the various phases of construction through 2014. The paintings will hang in the Canal Administration building in Panama City.

Materials List:

1. PAINT
I strongly recommend water mixable oil paints. They’re easier to clean up, are as permanent as regular oils and there are no fumes (a courtesy to other artists). I recommend Cobra brand by Royal Talens.

a. Titanium white
b. Mars or Ivory black (any black is okay)
c. Yellow Cadmium (or hue)  primary yellow
d. Yellow Ochre
e. Red Cadmium (or hue)  pyrole red
f. Alizarin Crimson  madder lake
g. Cerulean Blue
h. Ultramarine Blue

2. BRUSHES
a. One round # 2 (for details)
b. Hog bristle or synthetic brights or filberts, # 4, # 8, # 10

3. CANVASES
Two 9” X 12” 1/8” inch gessoed Masonite panels per day (no larger). Please prep panels
in a mid value color, light gray or yellow ochre (you can use flat house paint or acrylics).
Masonite or any smooth surface works best with water mixable oils. I have also used 1/8”
Birch plywood cut to size and sealed with flat house paint.

4. ODDS AND ENDS
Paper towels, bottle water for paints (and drinking!), small palette knife for scraping and
mixing paint, trash bags, apron, small sketch pad and pen.
Portable brush cleaner with hook to hang from your Easel. You’ll need odorless turpen
-tine if working with regular oil paints.

All these supplies are available at Blick.com
