Upcoming Workshops

Barbara J. Zimmerman 
Saturday, March 7, 2020, 10 am-4 pm 

Local artist Barb Zimmerman has gained national recognition as a prolific portrait artist. Recently awarded the prestigious Editor’s Award from Artist Magazine, she has completed over two thousand commissions throughout the course of her career. Zimmerman was chosen to draw portraits of Margaret Thatcher and Colin Powell; their portraits and several of her other works are on permanent display at Ashland University.


Zimmerman holds a BFA from the University of Akron. She has over thirty years’ experience in advertising and marketing with agencies around Cleveland and Cuyahoga Falls and has sold pieces nationally. In an ever-evolving career path, she has branched out into other mediums, including collage.

The class will involve discussion on materials, mediums, design, and color usage to enhance one’s own personal style while creating a subjective collage using personal subject matter (your photo) and surface materials (paper or canvas) with water media.

Vincent Matheney "Art and Technology" 
Saturday, April 25, 2020, 10 am - 2 pm

Local artist Vincent Matheney has grown up having technology at his fingertips. His father was a software engineer and so his curiosity about technology grew year after year. Meanwhile, in middle school and high school, Vincent fell in love with art and design. During middle school, he studied with sculptor Virgil Villars spending a week in his studio and was taught by "Chuck" Clemmons in high school. From there he went to the University of Akron and studied commercial art. Through the years Vincent has combined his love of art, design, and technology in many ways. From creating digital art to designing dozens of websites and online media pieces, Vincent loves to be on the web and in the cloud. Vincent also created Studio Draco his own graphic and web design firm, which has been operating since 2008. 


In this class, Vincent will share his experiences with technology as an artist including tips and tricks for preparing art for digital submissions, developing an artist website, social media uses in art, and creating art with digital programs. Participants are encouraged to bring their laptops, tablets, and smartphones (also a stylus of some sort for your device) and to bring a reference photo or personal subject matter to create a piece of digital art.
