The drawing, painting, and printmaking curriculum at Peninsula School of Art strikes a balance between traditional methods that have stood the test of time and innovative approaches of today. We believe the variety of workshops we offer each year is our greatest strength; ensuring there is a place for students of all backgrounds, skill levels, and creative interests.
Our visiting faculty members are artists and educators operating at the highest level. Each brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to our program they are eager to share to advance the technical skills, conceptual direction, and personal motivations of each student.
Spacious, filled with light, and accessible to the surrounding landscape, our 2D studios provide an inspirational setting for creative work. Large tables, professional easels, and taborets outfit the drawing and painting studios, while a Graphic Chemical etching press, LED exposure unit, and all of the necessary tools and materials complete the printmaking studio.
We invite you to join us for a workshop - or two - this season. Pursue your creative interests, take risks, and develop new skills among peers in a supportive and energizing environment.
Peninsula School of Art's metals and ceramics curriculum emphasizes process over product. We believe the finished piece is only one step in a student's artistic development. Our workshops, at all levels, encourage students to examine the materials at hand, experiment with various techniques, and exchange ideas. When the stresses of completing a perfect piece are set aside, we find students experience tremendous growth.
Incredible artists and educators, our visiting faculty members aim to improve students' fluency in the materials and tools of their chosen medium, as well as help determine new conceptual directions.
Our designated 3D studios are fully equipped, filled with natural light, and easily accessible to more working space outdoors. The metals studio is outfitted with hand tools for forming and finishing, a rolling mill, soldering setups, enameling kilns, casting equipment, and all of the necessary benchtop power tools. The ceramics studio features potter's wheels, a slab roller, large tables for hand building and glazing, two electric kilns, and three raku kilns.
Experience a metals or ceramics workshop with us this summer. Discover new sources of inspiration and dive into your development as an artist.
Peninsula School of Art’s photography and digital arts curriculum merges traditional and contemporary approaches to digital photography, hybrid photography processes featuring digital and analog tools, and methods for using technology within other artistic disciplines. Our workshops are designed to provide both the beginning and advanced student an opportunity to refine and shape their skills.
Visiting photography and digital faculty members are exceptional artists and educators. Drawing upon their own experience and knowledge, instructors help students build technical skills, determine new conceptual directions, and develop a sustainable creative practice through various teaching methods.
While the school is a home base for lectures, discussions, and computer-based work, many workshops venture into the unique surrounding landscape for inspiration and fieldwork. The studio is outfitted with a projector for sharing images and video, lighting equipment, seamless backdrops, an Epson printer, and stations for students to plug in their own laptops and tablets.
