Academic Painting Workshop

Jura Bedic: Graduate and Faculty member of The Florence  Academy of Art

Mon 2nd - Fri 6th October 2017

This is a unique opportunity to take part in a workshop conducted by Jura Bedic and teaching assistant Taylor Powell, graduates and faculty members of the Florence Academy of Art, a school founded to provide the highest level of instruction as possible in the classical method of drawing, painting and sculpture.

Instruction will begin with a technical exploration on how to mix colours, organize the palette and prepare mediums, before moving on to producing a painting from life.

Students will begin course on Monday with a study of a fruit, as a warm up exercise, after which they will move on to paint a full still life - the perfect genre for learning about colour, creating the illusion of space and texture - in the remaining four days.

Students will work from natural light in an atmospheric setting, in order to better reproduce and translate tones and hues in a way that resemble nature and reality more closely, as well as achieve colour harmony and unity of light,  while at the same time, create strong dramatic contrasts between light and dark.

Students will learn the essential qualities of classical painting: accuracy, rhythm, light effect and the illusion of form and space.

The workshop is aimed at both experienced students as well as beginners; instruction is on individual basis, therefore students of all levels are welcome.

About the instructor:

"Jura Bedic was born in Croatia in 1980. He completed his studies at The Florence Academy of Art in 2002, and became a principle instructor first in the Intensive Drawing Program, then in the Painting Program. He has participated in group exhibitions in numerous galleries in the United States, as well as alumni exhibitions organized by the Academy in Germany and Florence, including “Realism Revisited” at the Panorama Museum, Bad Frankenhausen. He is winner of the 2001 Art Renewal Center International Scholarship Competition, and his work is featured in an article in American Artist “Drawing” Magazine, 2003, ”Classical Approaches to the Teaching of Drawing.”

Fundraising Event: Face Painting

27th Oct 2012

11 am to 4 pm

“Life is a gift, and it offers us the privilege, opportunity, and responsibility to give something back by becoming more.” Tessa Edwards

JArt Studio-Gallery is organising a fun face painting event for charity which will take place in autumn, just before Halloween! Hence the theme of the day will be Halloween. All are welcome to take part, children as well as adults. Come dressed casually, or even better, show up in a fancy dress – so that getting your face painted will add that extra touch to your mask!

The price for a face painting will be 10 Fr each; however, donations for other amounts will also be accepted as this is a chance to contribute towards a good cause.

If you would like to take part but cannot make it for the day, you can still help/contribute by making a donation towards this event/organization via the “donate button” below, or directly via the Green Cross page.

All Proceedings in fact will go to the Swiss Green Cross which facilitates overcoming consequential damages caused by industrial and military disasters, and the clean-up of contaminated sites from the period of the Cold War. Central issues are the improvement of the living quality of people affected by chemical, radioactive and other types of contamination, as well as the promotion of a sustainable development in the spirit of cooperation instead of confrontation. This includes the involvement of all stakeholder groups affected by a problem.

Workshop

Batik Style Painting

Saturday 25th Feb 2012

10 am to 6 pm

The name "Batik" - which means what is drawn - derives from the Indonesian words "amba" (to write) and "titik" (drop).

This technique of painting on fabric was probably already known and practiced by the Egyptians and was introduced in the Java Island (Indonesia) between 300 and 400 A.D. by Indian traders. In Europe, however, this painting style is today still not much known or widespread. This workshop, thus, will provide you with a unique opportunity to learn about this fascinating art. You will be introduced to Batik by working on a chosen design, reproduce it on a silk or cotton support, learn about different waxing procedures, colouring and drying of the fabric, removing of the wax and fixing of colour.

The workshop will run from 10 am to 6 pm and you will have the opportunity to create from one to three painted pieces including a scarf, a cushion cover or a painting.

This course will be taught by Ludovica who has lived in Malaysia for three years; it was in fact there that she discovered and  developed her passion for Batik painting.

This workshop will also be an excellent opportunity for spending some quality time together, meet new people and have lots and lots of fun!!

If this sounds interesting, join us at the studio-gallery on the 25th of Feb for a day of fun and creativity!!

Book now!! Places are limited!!

***Please give confirmation with at least 10 days notice***. 

Price per person: Fr 150.00 (price includes art material and a light refreshment ).
