    An inevitable part of a career as an artist at any scale is professionally documenting your artwork. Professional photographs are important for project and exhibition proposals, grant applications, and marketing. In this workshop, instructor Bill Wise will demonstrate tips and tricks for successful documentation of your artwork using the DAI photography studio located in the Lincoln Park Building. This workshop will cover how to prepare your artwork to be photographed, including best practices with the lighting and backdrops available in the photo studio and positioning the camera using a tripod. Wise will demonstrate with a variety of cameras, including the DAI’s Nikon DSLR, a Canon DSLR, and some cell phones. He’ll discuss the camera settings, taking the photo, some basic photo editing and processing, and more. 

    The course will take place from 5:30-7:30; however, the Zoom meeting will open 5:00pm in order to provide time for those who have never used Zoom before to become familiar with the platform.

    The DAI photography studio is free for use to DAI members. If you are interested in using the photography studio, please contact aswanson@duluthartinstitute.org.


    This workshop is part of the DAI Professional Development series and has been paid for by the Community Foundation Young Leaders Fund

    Watercolor Workshop with David R. Becker  https://www.beckerart.net/

    9-4pm October 22nd, 23rd, 24th at DAI Lincoln Park Building

    $375/member  $450/non-member

    IL based artist, David R. Becker, will be teaching you watercolor from beginning to end; starting with teaching you how to take total control of the watercolor medium and using that control of the medium to create well-composed watercolors. Subject matter will be changing daily with photo reference supplied in the morning and afternoon. Lessons will include most every element that David can think of that will teach you how to paint a watercolor with confidence. This workshop is designed to benefit all levels of painters. Teaching students to conquer the medium of watercolor is David's goal and he takes great pride in making sure every student leaves with the ability to control watercolor.    


    Materials List

    I recommend Holbein Watercolor paint because one can squeeze the whole tube into your palette and it won't dry to a big rock clump. When left to dry they become instantly workable with a spray of water. 

    The Holbein colors I use are listed in Parentheses. You don't have to get these exact colors; colors close to them are just fine. Just look for a good range of color. 

    • Burnt Sienna (Holbein Light Red)
    • Raw Umber (Holbein Quin gold, Yellow ochre)
    • Orange (Holbein Permanent Yellow Orange)
    • Burnt Umber (Holbein Imidazolone Brown)
    • Cadmium Yellow Lt. (Holbein Permanent Yellow Light)
    • Cadmium Red Lt. (Holbein Scarlet Lake)
    • Alizarin Crimson (Holbein Crimson Lake)
    • Cerulean Blue (Holbein Horizon Blue)
    • Violet (Holbein Permanent Violet & Holbein Lavender)
    • Cobalt Blue (Holbein Peacock Blue)
    • Ultramarine Blue (Holbein Ultramarine Deep)
    • Phthalo Blue (Holbein Prussian Blue)

    Opaque colors like white, colors with white in them like pastel colors, pinks, greys and black are also used but not necessarily needed. 

    I will let you use mine if you want to try out using some opaque colors. 

    Nylon brushes are great for the price 

    • 1 1/4 Inch Flat Brush
    • #16 Round Brush
    • #4 Rigger Round Brush
    • 1/2 Inch Flat Brush
    • 1/4 Inch Flat Brush
    • #8 Round Brush
    • Get good paper, no Spiral bound watercolor paper. I recommend 300lb Arches or 300lb Stonehenge Aqua

     Arches and Stonehenge Aqua140 & 300lb blocks of paper are also okay.

    • White Plastic combo Palette & Tray
    • White painters tape
    • #2 pencil and a kneaded rubber eraser
