The Harlow Launches New Art Workshops for September

Registration is now open for September art workshops at The Harlow, 100 Water Street in Hallowell including Color Theory taught by Jim Flahaven, Ceramic Surface Design taught by Tyler Gulden, and Artists’ Professional Development Series taught by Helene Farrar.

Workshops at the Harlow offer an opportunity to try something new or expand on existing skills. Pre-registration is required for all workshops. Spaces are limited. They will be small classes with lots of opportunity for one on one instruction and conversation.

Color Theory with Jim Flahaven:
This workshop will focus on the physical interaction of colors. It is appropriate for anyone who uses color in their practice: painters, interior designers, fiber artists, etc. The approach will be hands-on and students will paint, cut and paste using acrylics. Together, the group will cycle through a number of different exercises and discuss numerous color theory concepts. Each student should leave the workshop with more mastery and understanding of color. All materials included. Tuition: $40 Members / $65 Non-Members. Space is limited to 15 students. Open to ages 16 and up. No previous experience necessary.

Ceramic Surface Design with Tyler Gulden: On Saturday, September 28, 1-4pm join ceramic artist and educator Tyler Gulden for a hands-on introduction to the chemistry of mixing and techniques for applying very thick slip to transform the surface of their pots. Using the wheel, brushes, hands, and a variety of tools and ribs (some of our own making) the class will explore together how slip can elevate and change the the surface of ceramic forms. This workshop will take place at Hallowell Clay Works located at 157 Water Street, Hallowell. Students will pick up their fired pieces at the Harlow, just down the street at 100 Water Street in Hallowell. All materials included. Tuition: $50 Members / $75 Non-Members. Space is limited to 12 students. Students under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. No previous experience necessary. The deadline to register is 6pm on Wednesday, September 25.
