Continuing on our journey into photographic processes we take a look at mordançage, a specialized method used by Kristoffer Johnson in #TheNational. See how science and art come together in this post.
We’re shifting our #saturdaystudio schedule to coincide with Second Saturday Family Tours at #fwmoa! Join us at #fwmoa in the morning, then come home and make art inspired by something you saw. Today, we're inspired by glass artist Hiroshi Yamano.
Known for his pioneering work in the studio glass movement, Harvey Littleton forged a connection between glass and printmaking by creating an alternative process using glass as the matrix: vitreography. Learn more about it in this #arttermtuesday!
In the spirit of Halloween, we in the #fwmoa #studio are thinking about the idea of transformation and disguise. We created our own mask inspired by Karl Zerbe's Girl with Blue Mask. Will your mask be happy or sad? Strange or spooky?
We continue our exploration of the principles of art with a duo: proportion and scale. See how artists use both terms within the artwork and through the artwork itself.
Today in the #studio we felt like staying in the lines, so we went to look at Susan Janow's exhibition, now on display at #fwmoa, to get inspired by grids!
Looking to add some (pumpkin) spice to your fall photos? Inspired by the artists featured in "The National", we decided to see how changing the box, from rectangular to square, would change our photos in this #saturdaystudio.
Today in the #studio we're cleaning up! Inspired by Louise Nevelson and her use of found objects, we dug through our trove of things to create mystery "treasure boxes" like the ones collected by Dorothy Gillespie. See how here:
Today in the #fwmoa #studio, we celebrate centennials! Local fashion designer Bill Blass would have turned 100, and, in 2023, the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards will! An Award recipient, we celebrate with a weaving project worthy of a Bill Blass dress.
Where does color come from? How does an artist choose their color and how have those colors changed over time? In a new series, we'll explore these questions but today we're starting with the fundamentals of color: pigment v dye.
