A Field Guide to Color: A Workshop with Lisa Solomon

Welcome to the wonderful world of color and watercolor paint! In this class we’ll explore a few of the ideas and exercises from Lisa’s new book A Field Guide To Color. Through a playful approach you’ll begin to learn about color schemes, paint transparency, tints and shades, etc. With fun painterly experiments we'll dive into how materials and other influences can impact our perception of color, and how to develop your own personal relationship with color. We’ll end class with a Color Meditation—a practice Lisa has instituted in her own studio for years now.

HOW TO DRAW A GHOST w/ Zachary Schomburg

HOW TO DRAW A GHOST w/ Zachary Schomburg

HOW TO DRAW A GHOST

Led by Zachary Schomburg

First, we’ll talk about how to draw a ghost, while looking at a wide range of ghost illustrations. Then we’ll draw ghosts. How do we see ghosts when we draw them? What makes a ghost and what makes a ghost drawing? What kind of ghosts will we be, and how will we be drawn? We’ll take turns reading writing about ghosts as we draw them. And we won’t stop until we’ve drawn the right ghost for us. With time permitting, we’ll do some poem writing for ghosts. So, by the end of the workshop, we’ll each have new drawing of ghosts, and a ghost poem.

$30 - $50 Sliding Scale

Register here.

Zachary Schomburg is the author of a novel, Mammother (Featherproof 2017) and 5 books of poems including, most recently, Pulver Maar (Black Ocean 2019). He is also an illustrator, muralist, teacher, and publisher of a small independent poetry press called Octopus Books. He lives in Portland, OR.

PLEASE HOLD: Silence and Tension in Flash Fiction

w/ Alissa Hattman

At first glance, it may sound like a paradox—how does language express its absence? In this workshop, we will consider that question and examine the art of silence through sample readings, discussion, generative writing, listening and sharing. We will think about the types of silences in short-form writing, who or what is silenced, and how silence builds tension; finally, we will write into the secret silences, what Ada Limón describes as a “silence that comes back, a million times bigger than me, sneaking into my bones and wails and wails and wails until I can’t be quiet anymore.” In a supportive, collaborative space, this workshop will focus on short-form fiction, but is open to all. 

$30 - $50 Sliding Scale

Register Here

ALISSA HATTMAN is a writer and teacher living in Oregon. Her flash fiction has appeared in Gravel, Propeller, American Writers Review, Big Other, mojo, Shirley Magazine, and SUSAN, among other publications. In 2009, she received her MFA in Fiction at Pacific University and, in 2013, she completed a MA in English Literature from Portland State University. She teaches writing full-time at Chemeketa Community College in Salem. More at www.alissahattman.com

Early Summer Poetry Workshop w/ Zachary Schomburg
May
28
to Jul 2

Early Summer Poetry Workshop w/ Zachary Schomburg

Come join Zachary Schomburg this early summer at Outlet for a six week Poetry workshop.

This will be a generative poetry workshop for poets at all levels. The main focus will be to sustain a poetry writing practice for six weeks with access to a small group of focused readers. After each workshop, Zachary will give the group a prompt/assignment to complete for the week, one that addresses some aspect of poetry writing brought up in your group conversations. The participants will spend the beginning of the following week's workshop discussing your experiences with the assignment.

The workshop will be capped at 6 people, so everyone will get about 20 minutes of focused group discussion of their own new work at each meeting. The class will meet once per week for 6 total weeks starting on May 28 and meeting every Tuesday from 6:00 to 8:30. 

At the end of six weeks, the group will be enrolled in our own riso workshop with the goal of printing a riso poetry broadside of a poem generated from the poetry workshop.

$200 total per person for the 6 weeks.

Born in 1925, Nan Pollard knew she liked to draw from an early age. She won awards for her artwork in both junior high and high school, and went on to study at the Layton School of Art in Milwaukee.

She has built a prestigious career as an illustrator and was continually sought out by publishers for the quality of her work. She drew some of the best-loved children's subjects, including Captain Kangaroo, Mickey Mouse, Lassie and Curious George. In addition to story books, Nan did coloring and activity books as well as paper doll books. She retired in 1999 and passed away in 2012.

We will have risograph prints and coloring sheets of her work and plenty of drawing supplies. Come on by, have a drink, draw, color and learn about Nan Pollard’s 55 year illustration career.
