Screen Printing with Mark Friday, Saturday, November 4, 11am-1pmBiography: A printmaker and graphic artist, Friday's whimsical prints can be seen in the corporate collections of Kaiser Permanente and Qwest. His work was included in several group exhibitions, as well as in a solo exhibition at the O'Sullivan Gallery at Regis University.

"My teaching philosophy is to provide students with the necessary tools and information that will allow them to successfully create art. I work with them from the general to the specific, starting with an explanation of the particular art form, historical background if necessary, and plenty of examples of actual work. This is followed by appropriate demonstrations of processes and techniques. Most importantly, I enjoy working with students individually on their particular projects, helping them solve problems and giving suggestions, all in a relaxed and fun atmosphere."

Pastels 101 with Judith Scott, Saturday, November 4, 2-4pmBiography: Scott has taught art for over 30 years, instructing students in drawing, painting, design, color and human anatomy. Her work is included in several publications and has won numerous local and national awards, including special recognition at the prestigious Art in the Parks annual competition.

"Like a preacher, a teacher should be all about offering hope. The teacher is a resource for the student to help form and expand his/her knowledge. I firmly believe that I can teach anyone to draw as it is an intellectual activity. As to painting and the other art forms, I demonstrate how frequently and then encourage the student, not to mimic me, but to allow their own personal marks and expression to take form in their work. Teaching itself is a gift and a skill and one I enjoy as much as creating art! Students can expect to gain learning about themselves and their own path of development. They can expect an encouraging and fun environment in which to do this. Critiques are positive, insightful, and honest. They can expect to develop their own skills of self analysis."

I have been an artist all my life and I believe that creativity and self expression should be practiced and enjoyed by everyone.

As an artist and art teacher it has been my great pleasure to surround myself with artists and their friendships have enriched my life in so many ways. Creating art is my passion and that is what I will be doing for the rest of my life.
