Cut and Painted Paper
More than a collage class, our goal will be to create a balance between playful experimentation and careful study of composition to create dynamic painted paper
works. Students will begin by painting loosely on paper, not over-thinking, just enjoying the act of applying color and texture using palette knives, sponges,
trowels as well as traditional brushes. Once students have built up a collection of papers, we will discuss composition by studying the work of masters such as
Titian, Cezanne, Juan Gris, as well as more contemporary painters. We will also be discussing methods of creating a sense of movement, excitement and energy in students’ work. Students will then begin cutting up or tearing their painted papers and experimenting with design by playing and rearranging shapes on their work surface.

A unique partnership between Woodstock School of Art and the Rock Academy!
Be part of teen group that will focus on creating artwork for Rock Academy’s upcoming show featuring the music of the iconic rock band KISS. Participants will collaborate on group projects, such as a backdrop for the stage. They will also create an individualized piece of art inspired by the raw energy of the band KISS and the Glam/Metal art scene in the 1970’s and 80’s. This artwork can take the form of drawing, painting, or sculpture, created with the assistance of veteran art teacher Patty Mooney. Patty has an eclectic resume including 20 years teaching art at Saugerties High School, an active local artist, and worked for indie labels in the early 90’s as an Art Director and Graphic Designer in particular Roadrunner Records for bands such as Sepultura, Typo O Negative, and Motorhead.
