An Introduction to Flemish Art

In this introductory lecture, Katharina Van Cauteren, Chief of Staff of The Phoebus Foundation and curator of the exhibition Saints and Sinners, Lovers, and Fools: 300 Years of Flemish Masterworks will take the audience on a journey across more than three centuries of Flemish art and history.

At the end of the Middle Ages, the small patch of land that we now call “Flanders” was the center of the world. Cities such as Antwerp, Bruges, and Ghent were the New York, London, and Hong Kong of the fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries. An art and luxury market soon emerged here that had no equal anywhere else North of the Alps. Van Cauteren will tell this exceptional story through the masterpieces of artists from the Southern Netherlands such as Hans Memling and Quinten Metsys, Jan Gossaert, Peter Paul Rubens, Antoon Van Dyck, and Jacob Jordaens.

Bundle Dyeing

One-day workshop.

Students will learn bundle dyeing techniques with fun and unique natural materials from the kitchen. Bundle dyeing is perfect for somebody who enjoys creating spontaneous, abstract artworks. Students will learn the basic process of natural dyeing first. We will mordant silk with alum and then we dye fabrics together. We will have iron bath to darken colors as well.

No previous experience of natural dyeing is necessary at all. This class is more like an experiment for students to learn which kind of colors would stick on to fabrics from natural materials. The educator, Maki Teshima, will demonstrate natural materials from Japan and from all over the world.

Materials: Most materials will be provided by the educator and are reflected in the $26 materials fee associated with this class. Soy bonded cotton fabric will be provided. Students will purchase the remaining materials on their own.

Educator: Maki Teshima, https://www.tomorrowisalwaysnew.com

Additional Notes: A Materials Fee of $26 is included in the pricing of this class for provided materials.

Everything Under the Sun

6-week class.

This class will examine concepts of light through a variety of media. We will explore what it means to live and create as solar beings, in the gravity and thrall of celestial bodies. Through camera-less photography, we will take a multifaceted view of natural and artificial light, reconsidering the way that we interact with objects and the world around us. We will explore patterns and shapes made by objects alive and dead, objects organic and man-made, objects rendered recognizable and unrecognizable. Our explorations together will evolve into multidimensional, multiscale works as the weeks unfold, with an emphasis on the group pushing itself to test the limits of each of the media we will use.

No prior technical knowledge is required for this class. The class will be broken up into sections of different media with thorough introductions of each medium and viewing of artworks. Students will be focused initially on small experiments, which we hope to incorporate into more experimental, integrated works by the end. With a limited amount of class time each week, we will repeat and return to media and activities so students can legitimately explore the possibilities of a medium and gain some mastery.

Class 1 - Proto-photographic processes

Inspired Poetry

4-week class.

Both beginner and professional writers often agree that the most daunting part of the writing process is sitting and staring at a blank screen, trying to figure out what to write, or how to start. In this class we’ll replace the blank screen with works of art from the Denver Art Museum, and allow what we see to inspire and inform our work as we create a collection of poetry.

This class will be a mix of learning the skills of writing poetry (form, rhyme, metaphor, alliteration, language, etc.), and getting out into the museum to free write and create. Each class will focus on a different aspect of poetry and explore a different exhibit of the museum. By the end of the class, each poet will have a minimum of four poems in their poetry collection. Both beginner and experienced writers are welcome!

 

Timeline:

Class 1: First Half: In the classroom. Intro to poetry. Skills focus: Setting and form.

Second Half: In the galleries: Paintings (focusing on lush poetic settings). Time to share and receive feedback if desired.

Class 2: First Half: In the classroom: Skills focus: Character and language.
