Oil Painting Day CLass
The Art Supply Depo Toledo – OIL PAINTING DAY CLASS $165.00 Six Mondays January 22, 29, February 5, 12, 19, 26 2018 from 11:00am- 2:00pm. Specify dates upon adding item to cart. Instructor: Debra Buchanan Ages: mature teens + adults Join Debra Buchanan for a six-week workshop in traditional oil painting in the style of Van Eyck and the Northern Italian Renaissance masters. Tuition is $165 and includes use of paint and most brushes. Debra's traditional style is based on the optical mixing of colors by glazing transparent layers of oil color over-top other colors. This technique is the marriage of drawing and painting, and allows the artist to achieve the highest level of detail and chromatic brilliance unobtainable by physically mixing paints. Debra will also cover: how to mix flesh tones, how to use different brushes, recipes and directions for mixing Imprimatura and Tempera emulsion, and many skills that can be easily transferred to other mediums. This is not the sort of class where everyone paints the same thing; so it's important to bring whatever you'd like to paint with you. It can be a portrait, landscape, animal, whatever (see notes below on the type of photos to bring). Deb is really great and can help you to paint any image. DO NOT BE INTIMIDATED! Note that no previous oil painting experience is required or expected. Debra has successfully taught a seven-year-old this process. CLASS AGENDA Class #1: Lecture and explanation of technique; Drawing image to be painted on canvas with a Nero (oil based) pencil; Application of Imprimatura. (Bring your images to the first class.) Class #2: Application of tempera white with emulsion medium. Class #3: Application of Umber layer of paint. Class #4: Begin Glazing colored layers of paint. Class #5: Continue Glazing with layers of color. Class #6: Finish Glazing with layers of color. Students should bring or buy: Their own canvas, Masterpiece brand available at both Depo locations is recommended. Canvas size should be limited to 8x10", 9x12", or 11x14" for the first painting. It is important not to go too much larger with the painting as you are learning the technique, otherwise you might not be able to finish it during the six week class. Two photos of what they would like to paint to the first class. One image should be a high quality color copy, the same size as the canvas you would like to paint, on any sort of paper. The other copy should be a black and white or "gray scale" image. Black and white copies should be on inexpensive or thin printer paper, so those who wish to transfer their image via tracing can do so easily. Black and white photos printed on nice quality photo paper can't be traced or transferred easily. Copies can be brought from home or made at Fed Ex/ Kinkos. Students should also bring or buy one or two oil-based Nero pencils, an eraser or two, a small synthetic fan brush, a fine detail brush, a palette knife, tack cloth, a disposable palette pad, and a small jar of oil-painting medium. The medium is something we mix specially. The total cost of these supplies will be about $30-40, dependent on the brushes you choose. Ask us about putting together a kit for you ahead of time. You can also ask us for help picking out the right supplies when you come in. Both Jules and Deb are our oil painting experts! RSVP required. Register now online, stop into the shop, or call (419) 720-6462 to register over the phone. 1.8 hours of CEU credit is available for educators taking this course. Teachers seeking CEU credit should speak with their professional development coordinator to confirm the course meets standards set by each individual school or district. ***Please reference our class cancellation policy on our website.*** Please register as soon as you plan on attending. Classes that don't reach the minimum number of students required will be canceled 48 hours before the first day of class. Last minute registrations are accepted if class minimum is met and space allows, but this class typically sells out. Early registration is encouraged.

January M.o.M Speed Mentoring
Inclusive Inc : Women of Toledo – M.o.M: Mentoring on the Moment! Speed Mentoring Program with Women of Toledo Get & give career advice, hack career or business problems, and exchange ideas - in record time. No matter what industry you're in, or where you are in your career, chances are, you could use a little advice now & again. Networking at events or trying to approach people you admire -- that's just awkward. The truth is, most industry leaders are happy to share what they know, and they just don’t have time to do so on a one-to-one basis. That’s why WOT launched M.o.M. to help everyone connect in a meaningful, fun & fast-paced way. M.o.M or speed mentoring is speed dating meets mentoring. At this event, the program is set up like a typical speed dating environment with tables for two. Depending on the number of participants, there could be at least 20 mentors to meet in one session. The goal is for Mentees to meet as many Mentors in 1 ½ hours as humanly possible and have a blast doing it. A speed mentoring event could potentially support all of these approaches: -Raise awareness of the benefits of mentoring and WOT’s support for economic empowerment. -It could kick-start connections that build over time. -Create chance meetings which lead to a mentoring relationship very soon afterwards. -Formal schemes speed up the resource intensive matching process by enabling mentors and mentees meet many potential matches in a short period of time. Mentees might be seeking career advice or help hacking business/career problems. No matter what the Mentees' goals are, one thing is sure: when it's all over, some great connections were made. And, everyone parts as friends and/or new peer-network.

AIA Toledo Society Lecture: Maggie Popkin
The Toledo Museum of Art – Dr. Maggie Popkin (Assistant Professor of Roman Art at Case Western Reserve University)presents the 5th Annual Dorothy M. Price Memorial Lecture. When we think of the Roman Empire, gladiators and charioteers come immediately to mind. This talk examines a fascinating but often overlooked category of objects related to these quintessential Roman spectacles: namely, sports memorabilia, including drinking vessels, lamps and figurines. At a time when literacy was limited and visual communication was essential, these objects generated knowledge of chariot racing and gladiatorial combat across many Roman provinces, constructed the celebrity of individual charioteers and gladiators, fueled enthusiasm about these sports, and served as complex agents of Roman culture in provinces with diverse populations. This lecture is presented by the Archaeological Institute of America—Toledo Society and the Toledo Museum of Art. This lecture is FREE and will be held in the Little Theater.
