You don’t have to work with gemstones and precious metals to make a priceless work of art. 

Renaissance artists created eternal images using common materials: soft stones from the earth, crushed into pigments; swamp reeds and the quills of goose feathers, cut into pens; and glue made from rabbit skin, for tinted paper. Drawing techniques—used by Renaissance and medieval draftsmen—to produce tone and delineate form will be explored, along with how these methodologies can be used to exploit today’s common materials. Students will experience what it’s like to prepare their own drawing materials to create images. Basic principles of translating visual perception to paper will also be emphasized, helping students achieve their personal artistic goals.

Alicia Rothman received her MFA in printmaking and drawing from Indiana University, where she later became the Associate Instructor of Design; and a BA from Binghamton University. Her paintings are represented by Lanoue Gallery in Boston, and have been exhibited at Franklin 54 Gallery and National Academy Museum, NY, Laurel Tracey Gallery, NJ, Rice/Polak MA, Butler Institute of American Art, OH, Muscarelle Museum of Art, VA, Maxwell Gallery, GA. Her work is in private and public collections including Binghamton University Art Museum, Muscarelle Museum of Art, Prudential Bache, and the White House. Alicia received a 2002 White House Easter commission representing New York State, and a 2003 Hampton Classic Poster commission. She has taught at the National Academy of Design, and as an adjunct instructor at Hunter and NYU School of continuing education. She did the poster for HITS Horse Show in 2010 held in Woodstock, NY.
