“Louder Than A Bomb,” the award-winning, feature length documentary with Seattle Youth Speak's Cobb Cambronero

LTAB drops us into the world’s largest youth poetry slam, where more than 600 Chicago teens compete, share the joy of being young, and the pain of growing up. It’s about speaking out, making noise, finding your voice, and poetry. Includes a special live performance by a Seattle Youth Speaks poet. Presented by Bainbridge Island Museum of Art.

Opening act on April 30 is a special live performance by Seattle Youth Speaks Spokes Youth Leadership poet Cobb Cambronero.

King Cobb, also know as Cornelius Cambronero was simply born from a boombox. For as long as Cobb can remember, music has always been apart of him. From practicing Michael Jackson in his room for 8 hours a day, to dancing and performing on tables at family functions, to creating community youth rap programs, to making a name for himself as a rapper, spitting sick relatable bars about social justice issues and the view of the south Seattle community through his eyes. He was inspired to start rapping from listening to his favorite hip hop artist, Logic. After attending one of his shows, Cobb was truly inspired by Logic’s message of peace love and positivity to create music to change the world for the better. Cobb is working towards attending music school after his senior year at Cleveland High School this year, and hopes to eventually starting his own record label with him being the leading artist.

LOOKING + DRAWING

Petersonedited

Image courtesy of Erik Peterson

Each two hour class will begin with exercises designed to warm students minds and bodies to the present activity of drawing and looking.  Instruction in technique will be provided in order to increase students skills and awareness of perceptual drawing.  Skills developed will include: composition, structure in form and space, mark making and value building, material handling, and more.

Learning to draw includes not only the skillful rendering of what is perceived, but also the skillful awareness of ones own emotional, intellectual, cultural, and physical influences.  In this class we will attempt to develop a common set of skills and understandings of perception. Rendering by working from still life provides a neutral subject by which we practice observation.  Students will also be asked to provide photographs of subject matter that they are interested in engaging their imagination with.  By drawing from life, and from photos, students will recognize advantages and disadvantages in both types of reference material.  

Along with a sense of curiosity, bravery, and enthusiasm for an activity that predates technology, students should bring 2 or 3 photos with them on the first day in order to initiate discussion.  Erik will bring examples of artists work to help communicate concepts, and provide hands on demonstrations when helpful.

This 6 week series will meet Tuesday evenings, April 11-May 16 from 6:30-8:30pm in the 2nd floor classroom at BIMA. As the art museum is closed at this time, please enter the building at the side door marked 100 Ravine Lane. 

This course is taught by Bainbridge native Erik Peterson, who holds an MFA from American University.  Erik has taught drawing, painting, and color theory at schools ranging from Pratt Fine Art Center in Seattle to the Maryland College of Art and Design.

Materials needed:

  • 1 Drawing Pad (11"x14" or larger); paper quality should be heavy enough to endure erasing and toothy enough to hold a little charcoal.

  • BIMA will provide all other materials and tools.

April 15: The Art-Lover's Bucket List – 10 European Art Masterworks That Everyone Should See Before They Die

SOLD OUT! Waitlist available. May add second day. To be added to waitlist or for more information please email ashley@biartmuseum.org

Join Seattle artist, art educator, tour leader, and art critic Gary Faigin for a lively hour exploring 10 not-to-be-missed art experiences in Europe, culled from his many years of leading art tours to capitols like Rome, Paris, Madrid, and Berlin. Faigin will share both the images and the stories of one-of-a-kind masterworks like Bosch’s terminally bizarre Garden of Earthly Delights, or Frans Hals colossal, livelier-than-life portraits of partying militia men in Golden Age Holland. While some of the pieces will be familiar, others are almost unknown and rarely visited, like the by-appointment-only Vasari Corridor in Florence. More than simply a “best-of” list, this talk is a quick tour through some of the most compelling artist personalities and stories of Western Art…a rewarding morning even for the armchair traveler. 

 

April 22: The Bad Boy Who Rewrote Art History – The Art of Caravaggio

SOLD OUT! Waitlist available. May add second day. To be added to waitlist or for more information please email ashley@biartmuseum.org

Sublime master of realism inside the studio, incorrigible delinquent on the outside, the Baroque artist Caravaggio embodied contradiction. His spectacular paintings changed art history, but his violent personal life brought his career to an untimely end. Artist, critic and educator Gary Faigin will discuss why the art of Caravaggio had such an explosive impact on painters of his time, and how his familiarity with the violent world of the Roman street made his canvases so dramatic and so real.


April 29: The Greatest Show on Earth – A Look at the Universal Language of the Human Face

SOLD OUT! Waitlist available. May add second day. To be added to waitlist or for more information please email ashley@biartmuseum.org

The 36 square inches of the human face that contains the eyes, nose, and mouth, has an ability to communicate emotion that is unparalleled in the animal kingdom. Gary Faigin, author of the classic reference book "The Artist’s Complete Guide to Facial Expression," takes us on a guided tour of this fascinating landscape, demonstrating how slight changes in brows, mouths, and eyelids encode and display emotion. Faigin employs numerous examples from great art and photojournalism to highlight and explain vivid faces and dramatic feelings. The new art of computer animation has given artists one more–very powerful-tool to put facial expression front and center, and we’ll look at some of their recent successes. You won’t look at faces quite the same again.

 

May 13: Bad Paintings By Great Artists 

REGISTER 

Nobody’s perfect! While the skill and judgement of artists who have survived the test of time is unquestionable, even the greatest artists can have an off day, or take on a project that is ill-suited for their talents. We’ll look at ten less-than-stellar productions by painters like Tintore, Manet, and Sargent, and talk about where they seem to have gone off course, and why. Perhaps we can even learn a lesson or two to apply to our own undertakings, as to the pitfalls than can sabotage even the best of us.

Note: Not everyone agrees as to what a bad painting is! We’ll talk about that too.

“Louder Than A Bomb,” the award-winning, feature length documentary with Seattle Youth Speak's Cobb Cambronero

LTAB drops us into the world’s largest youth poetry slam, where more than 600 Chicago teens compete, share the joy of being young, and the pain of growing up. It’s about speaking out, making noise, finding your voice, and poetry. Includes a special live performance by a Seattle Youth Speaks poet. Presented by Bainbridge Island Museum of Art.

Opening act on April 30 is a special live performance by Seattle Youth Speaks Spokes Youth Leadership poet Cobb Cambronero.

King Cobb, also know as Cornelius Cambronero was simply born from a boombox. For as long as Cobb can remember, music has always been apart of him. From practicing Michael Jackson in his room for 8 hours a day, to dancing and performing on tables at family functions, to creating community youth rap programs, to making a name for himself as a rapper, spitting sick relatable bars about social justice issues and the view of the south Seattle community through his eyes. He was inspired to start rapping from listening to his favorite hip hop artist, Logic. After attending one of his shows, Cobb was truly inspired by Logic’s message of peace love and positivity to create music to change the world for the better. Cobb is working towards attending music school after his senior year at Cleveland High School this year, and hopes to eventually starting his own record label with him being the leading artist.

LOOKING + DRAWING

Petersonedited

Each two hour class will begin with exercises designed to warm students minds and bodies to the present activity of drawing and looking.  Instruction in technique will be provided in order to increase students skills and awareness of perceptual drawing.  Skills developed will include: composition, structure in form and space, mark making and value building, material handling, and more.

Learning to draw includes not only the skillful rendering of what is perceived, but also the skillful awareness of ones own emotional, intellectual, cultural, and physical influences.  In this class we will attempt to develop a common set of skills and understandings of perception. Rendering by working from still life provides a neutral subject by which we practice observation.  Students will also be asked to provide photographs of subject matter that they are interested in engaging their imagination with.  By drawing from life, and from photos, students will recognize advantages and disadvantages in both types of reference material.  

Along with a sense of curiosity, bravery, and enthusiasm for an activity that predates technology, students should bring 2 or 3 photos with them on the first day in order to initiate discussion.  Erik will bring examples of artists work to help communicate concepts, and provide hands on demonstrations when helpful.

This 6 week series will meet Tuesday evenings, April 11-May 16 from 6:30-8:30pm in the 2nd floor classroom at BIMA. As the art museum is closed at this time, please enter the building at the side door marked 100 Ravine Lane. 

This course is taught by Bainbridge native Erik Peterson, who holds an MFA from American University.  Erik has taught drawing, painting, and color theory at schools ranging from Pratt Fine Art Center in Seattle to the Maryland College of Art and Design.

Materials needed:

  • 1 Drawing Pad (11"x14" or larger); paper quality should be heavy enough to endure erasing and toothy enough to hold a little charcoal.

  • BIMA will provide all other materials and tools.

April 15: The Art-Lover's Bucket List – 10 European Art Masterworks That Everyone Should See Before They Die

SOLD OUT! Waitlist available. May add second day. To be added to waitlist or for more information please email ashley@biartmuseum.org

Join Seattle artist, art educator, tour leader, and art critic Gary Faigin for a lively hour exploring 10 not-to-be-missed art experiences in Europe, culled from his many years of leading art tours to capitols like Rome, Paris, Madrid, and Berlin. Faigin will share both the images and the stories of one-of-a-kind masterworks like Bosch’s terminally bizarre Garden of Earthly Delights, or Frans Hals colossal, livelier-than-life portraits of partying militia men in Golden Age Holland. While some of the pieces will be familiar, others are almost unknown and rarely visited, like the by-appointment-only Vasari Corridor in Florence. More than simply a “best-of” list, this talk is a quick tour through some of the most compelling artist personalities and stories of Western Art…a rewarding morning even for the armchair traveler. 

 

April 22: The Bad Boy Who Rewrote Art History – The Art of Caravaggio

SOLD OUT! Waitlist available. May add second day. To be added to waitlist or for more information please email ashley@biartmuseum.org

Sublime master of realism inside the studio, incorrigible delinquent on the outside, the Baroque artist Caravaggio embodied contradiction. His spectacular paintings changed art history, but his violent personal life brought his career to an untimely end. Artist, critic and educator Gary Faigin will discuss why the art of Caravaggio had such an explosive impact on painters of his time, and how his familiarity with the violent world of the Roman street made his canvases so dramatic and so real.


April 29: The Greatest Show on Earth – A Look at the Universal Language of the Human Face

SOLD OUT! Waitlist available. May add second day. To be added to waitlist or for more information please email ashley@biartmuseum.org

The 36 square inches of the human face that contains the eyes, nose, and mouth, has an ability to communicate emotion that is unparalleled in the animal kingdom. Gary Faigin, author of the classic reference book "The Artist’s Complete Guide to Facial Expression," takes us on a guided tour of this fascinating landscape, demonstrating how slight changes in brows, mouths, and eyelids encode and display emotion. Faigin employs numerous examples from great art and photojournalism to highlight and explain vivid faces and dramatic feelings. The new art of computer animation has given artists one more–very powerful-tool to put facial expression front and center, and we’ll look at some of their recent successes. You won’t look at faces quite the same again.

Jenny Davis Jaz...

TICKETS

World class musicians play a celebration & fundraiser for Listen To Your Art (LTYA). A non profit youth-run organization bringing awareness to the LGBTQ community and suicide prevention. The Jenny Davis Jazz Quintet features Seattle world class flugelhornist, Dmitri Matheny; jazz pianist and 2017 winner of the Earshot Jazz Instrumentalist of the Year award; Bill Anschell; Ted Enderle, bass; Robert Rushing, drums and  for an evening of original compositions and arrangements. Special guest, young composer, Gwynn Lanning, student at West Sound Academy will feature some songs from her latest album, along with fellow student, Sparky Davis and composer, Vanessa Litrell.  This is a celebration of young talent, and original music. 

A Seattle native, Davis earned her Bachelor of Music from the prestigious Cornish College of the Arts. A 20-year steward of straight-ahead jazz, she actively performs throughout the U.S. and Canada in clubs, festivals and jazz venues. A true original with an authentic sound, Jenny has that rare vocal ability to swing hard in the pocket and hold her own with the best musicians in the business. She is currently a vocal coach at Island Music Guild and in Masters of Jazz composition program at Vermont College of Fine Arts. Jazz Times says: "JENNY DAVIS goes deep and makes you feel the lyrics" 

Acclaimed for his warm tone, soaring lyricism and masterful technique, American flugelhornist DMITRI MATHENY has been lauded as one of the most emotionally expressive improvisers of his generation (International Review of Music). An honors graduate of the Berklee College of Music, Dmitri Matheny vaulted onto the jazz scene in the 1990s as the protégé of jazz legend Art Farmer. Since then he has garnered critical acclaim and a loyal international following, touring extensively throughout the United States, Europe and Asia, traveling to 19 countries. With over 100 recordings to his credit, Dmitri Matheny has released 11 albums as a leader. His latest is Jazz Noir, a fresh spin on crime jazz, film noir movie themes and timeless classics. The San Francisco Chronicle calls Matheny one of the jazz worlds most talented horn players.

2017 Earshot Jazz Instrumentalist of the year, Bill Anschell's own CDs have earned critical acclaim and widespread exposure, with several making Jazzweek's national "Top 50" chart for radio airplay. Anschell's 1998 release, a different note all together, was selected by United Press International (UPI) as one of the "10 Best" jazz releases of the year. His 2006 CD, More to the Ear than Meets the Eye, was chosen by numerous critics and radio stations across the country for their "10 Best of 2006" lists. His 2009 duo CD of spontaneous improvisations with saxophonist Brent Jensen was described by Cadence as "startlingly beautiful, surprising, and powerful...a transforming experience." And his 2011 solo piano release, Figments was called "magical" in Thomas Conrad's JazzTimes review.

Quinn Lanning is an 11th grade student at West Sound Academy in Poulsbo. They have been composing music for eight years and are currently study under Patrick Stoyanovich. Quinn is one of the original members of the arts and music festival Listen to Your Art. LGBT activism and awareness is one of the goals of Quinn’s music, as they strive to spread messages of compassion and discussion with their newest compositions. One of these pieces called Laces Tied to a Tree, focuses on several kinds of discrimination, including racism, homophobia, and religious persecution. Quinn wishes for all listeners to bring their own stories and reflect upon our society as a whole.

“Louder Than A Bomb,” the award-winning, feature length documentary with Seattle Youth Speak's Cobb Cambronero

LTAB drops us into the world’s largest youth poetry slam, where more than 600 Chicago teens compete, share the joy of being young, and the pain of growing up. It’s about speaking out, making noise, finding your voice, and poetry. Includes a special live performance by a Seattle Youth Speaks poet. Presented by Bainbridge Island Museum of Art.

Opening act on April 30 is a special live performance by Seattle Youth Speaks Spokes Youth Leadership poet Cobb Cambronero.

King Cobb, also know as Cornelius Cambronero was simply born from a boombox. For as long as Cobb can remember, music has always been apart of him. From practicing Michael Jackson in his room for 8 hours a day, to dancing and performing on tables at family functions, to creating community youth rap programs, to making a name for himself as a rapper, spitting sick relatable bars about social justice issues and the view of the south Seattle community through his eyes. He was inspired to start rapping from listening to his favorite hip hop artist, Logic. After attending one of his shows, Cobb was truly inspired by Logic’s message of peace love and positivity to create music to change the world for the better. Cobb is working towards attending music school after his senior year at Cleveland High School this year, and hopes to eventually starting his own record label with him being the leading artist.

April 15: The Art-Lover's Bucket List – 10 European Art Masterworks That Everyone Should See Before They Die

SOLD OUT! Waitlist available. May add second day. To be added to waitlist or for more information please email ashley@biartmuseum.org

Join Seattle artist, art educator, tour leader, and art critic Gary Faigin for a lively hour exploring 10 not-to-be-missed art experiences in Europe, culled from his many years of leading art tours to capitols like Rome, Paris, Madrid, and Berlin. Faigin will share both the images and the stories of one-of-a-kind masterworks like Bosch’s terminally bizarre Garden of Earthly Delights, or Frans Hals colossal, livelier-than-life portraits of partying militia men in Golden Age Holland. While some of the pieces will be familiar, others are almost unknown and rarely visited, like the by-appointment-only Vasari Corridor in Florence. More than simply a “best-of” list, this talk is a quick tour through some of the most compelling artist personalities and stories of Western Art…a rewarding morning even for the armchair traveler. 

 

April 22: The Bad Boy Who Rewrote Art History – The Art of Caravaggio

SOLD OUT! Waitlist available. May add second day. To be added to waitlist or for more information please email ashley@biartmuseum.org

Sublime master of realism inside the studio, incorrigible delinquent on the outside, the Baroque artist Caravaggio embodied contradiction. His spectacular paintings changed art history, but his violent personal life brought his career to an untimely end. Artist, critic and educator Gary Faigin will discuss why the art of Caravaggio had such an explosive impact on painters of his time, and how his familiarity with the violent world of the Roman street made his canvases so dramatic and so real.


April 29: The Greatest Show on Earth – A Look at the Universal Language of the Human Face

SOLD OUT! Waitlist available. May add second day. To be added to waitlist or for more information please email ashley@biartmuseum.org

The 36 square inches of the human face that contains the eyes, nose, and mouth, has an ability to communicate emotion that is unparalleled in the animal kingdom. Gary Faigin, author of the classic reference book "The Artist’s Complete Guide to Facial Expression," takes us on a guided tour of this fascinating landscape, demonstrating how slight changes in brows, mouths, and eyelids encode and display emotion. Faigin employs numerous examples from great art and photojournalism to highlight and explain vivid faces and dramatic feelings. The new art of computer animation has given artists one more–very powerful-tool to put facial expression front and center, and we’ll look at some of their recent successes. You won’t look at faces quite the same again.

 

May 13: Bad Paintings By Great Artists 

REGISTER 

Nobody’s perfect! While the skill and judgement of artists who have survived the test of time is unquestionable, even the greatest artists can have an off day, or take on a project that is ill-suited for their talents. We’ll look at ten less-than-stellar productions by painters like Tintore, Manet, and Sargent, and talk about where they seem to have gone off course, and why. Perhaps we can even learn a lesson or two to apply to our own undertakings, as to the pitfalls than can sabotage even the best of us.

Note: Not everyone agrees as to what a bad painting is! We’ll talk about that too.

Advanced Encaustic Painting with Deborah Kapoor

Sunday, April 30  |  10am-4pm  |  BIMA Classroom  |  $130

Encaustic painting is an ancient medium of beeswax, damar resin, and pigment recognized for its resplendent surface and rich color. Paint is fused together with heat, creating an enamel-like finish. 

In this one day workshop, you will learn advanced techniques of additive and subtractive markmaking, and how to layer for optimal color saturation and luminosity to expand your visual vocabulary using wax.

Tuition includes basic materials and tools. Individual encaustic workstations are provided with heat plates, heating tools, and encaustic paint. Intro to Encaustic prerequisite required. 

Deborah Kapoor is best known for her unconventional, mixed media paintings and wall installations with strong conceptual elements about the distilled poetry within cultural markers. Merging painting and sculpture with any process necessary as a vehicle for content, her painted dimensional works have been exhibited widely.

Family Workshop: Monotype Printmaking with Wendy Orville

Saturday May 20, 2017  |  10am-12pm  | BIMA Classroom | $26/$48 All materials provided

REGISTER HERE

Join printmaker Wendy Orville to learn about monotypes; one-of-a-kind prints, and how to create your own. Working in both black and white and with color, you will learn additive and subtractive techniques and experiment with a variety of mark making tools. This fun, family-friendly, multi-age workshop is well-suited for adults and youth alike.

Trained as a painter, Wendy has focused on making monotypes for the past twenty years. In 1996, she moved from New Mexico to the Pacific Northwest and found inspiration in the lush, veiled atmosphere of the region. She began making tonal monotypes exploring the subtle and evocative light of the Northwest landscape. Her intent is to reduce the landscape to essentials, evoking an emotional space that invites you inside while retaining a painterly flatness and tension.

She treats the monotype process like painting in many ways. She works to create an equivalent of light by building up translucent layers of etching ink, often scratching into the surface after pulling the print from the press and adding additional marks with cut up credit cards and inked rags. Clouds are made by wiping away forms on an inked plate with sharpened sticks and soft cloths - a deeply pleasurable and meditative process.

Wendy Orville is featured in BIMA's group show, Revering Nature, currently on view in the Feferman Gallery through June 4, 2017.
