Laguna College of Art and Design (LCAD) encourages local artists to take advantage of its expanded community education program for summer 2017 by enrolling in one of two new courses: Painting Explorations and Summer Portrait Sculpture.
"LCAD was created by a community of artists and we invite our neighbors to attend classes, distinguished lectures, and exhibitions for education and inspiration," said LCAD President Jonathan Burke. "We are proud to expand non-accredited, extension courses for Orange County residents as well as for pre-college students that enhance personal or professional development."
This year's summer 2017 Community Education Courses include:
DATES: Every Saturday, June 17 – July 29, 2017 (No Classes Saturday, June 24th and Saturday, July 1st)
TIME: 9-12 PM
AGES: 16 and above
Our classically-trained faculty teaches painting techniques and compositions, placing emphases on developing foundational skills and on pursuing a personal approach to painting from still life and from photographic references. Students receive individualized instruction and are encouraged to work at their own pace. In-class demonstrations will be done using oil paints, but students may use the painting mediums of their choice. Students furnish their own supplies and may bring what they typically use to class.
Instructor Sal Villagran
Sal earned his BFA from Laguna College of Art and Design in 2002 and obtained his MFA Cum Laude from the New York Academy of Art in 2005. Sal's work has been collected nationally through private commissions. He holds professional relationships with art galleries and enjoys continued patronage from dedicated collectors.
Summer Portrait Sculpture
DATES: Every Saturday, June 17 – July 22, 2017 (No Class Saturday, July 1)
TIME: 12-5 PM
AGES: 16 and above
INSTRUCTORS: Brittany Ryan and James Galindo
TUITION: $200.00 (Due by June 9th)
This classical sculpture course will introduce students to the study of the portrait as a sculptural form with emphasis on anatomy and construction by direct observation of the model. Students examine problems of visual conceptualization of the figure while developing clay modeling skills and techniques. Students receive individualized instruction and are encouraged to work at their own pace. In-class demonstrations will be done using oil-based clay. The college will provide clay and the armature that students can take home at the end of the class. Students will need to furnish their own sculpture tools that are listed in the materials list available online.
