Speaker

from The Mercury, April 13, 2019

I was recently honored to be the featured speaker at the PAAG meeting on April 16th 2019, at the Hill School in Pottstown, PA. It was a great audience, very responsive and engaged, and the questions about my work and the art life in general were many and varied! Lots of deep discussion and laughing too, which is the mix I like best. A great night!

Costumed Model Class



Hey all, I'm excited to be teaching a Costumed Model class at the Main Line Art Center starting on Wednesday April 24, 6;30-9:30 pm. It's one of the new 5-week courses the center is running. I'm already lining up models, and their costumes, and it's going to be so much fun! I'll actually be co-teaching with artist Eliza Auth, who will be teaching the second and third weeks of the class, excellent for getting another viewpoint!

PAINTING AND DRAWING THE COSTUMED MODEL
Nancy Bea Miller
Wednesdays 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM
Apr 24 - May 22, 2019
Session: Spring
Medium: Drawing and Painting | Level: Intermediate/Advanced
For more information & to register contact the registrar at the Main Line Art Center at 
610.520.0272 ext. 110
https://www.mainlineart.org/ 



Have fun honing your drawing and painting techniques while working from a costumed live model. Study how to describe the form and face while implying a narrative based on the model's costume. Explore techniques on how to render fabric as it drapes and conforms to the body, along with other textures, and dramatic light and shadow. Students are expected to be beyond the absolute beginner level in the medium of their choice, but don't need to have had previous experience with the costumed figure specifically. All mediums are welcome!

Advanced Etegami Class



Advanced Etegami: Beyond the Basics | Nancy Bea Miller | Saturday, March 17, 1:00 - 4:00 pm | Member: $34.50 | Non-Member: $39.00

This will be my first time leading this particular etegami class! Thanks in advance to the folks who've already signed up, apparently happy to be my guinea pigs. 💗My plan is for us all to stretch our etegami muscles a little, and we'll have fun, whatever the outcome. Remember, the motto of etegami is: Clumsy is fine! It's good to be clumsy! 😊

Class is Saturday March 17, 2018 1-4 pm

Description 
This class is geared for people who already have some experience making etegami or who have at least already taken Intro to Etegami. Students will be encouraged to share their favorite etegami techniques and to bring favorite etegami they may have received or created. We will discuss various styles of etegami, and try out collage, 3D, and other alternative materials. Mounting and laminating will be addressed, as well as various methods of display and presentation. Envelope making and information about International Etegami Calls will be discussed and shared. More than anything, this class will be a fun gathering for those already bitten by the etegami bug to meet other local enthusiasts and discuss the details of their beloved art form, have fun making etegami together, and hopefully learning something new along the way!

Fast Upcoming Etegami Workshop!

I will be leading an Intro to Etegami mini workshop this coming Saturday February 10, 2018, at the Main Line Art Center in Haverford, Pennsylvania. I am told it is nearly fully enrolled, but I am pretty sure we could squeeze in another person or two. If you are interested, don't delay! The more the merrier.

This is a quick, fun, three-hour introduction to the art of etegami. You can click here to read an excellent account of what one of these workshops is like, blogged by a talented artist who took the class a few years ago. People who have taken previous etegami workshops, or are already etegami adepts, are also welcome to attend, but may be more interested in taking next month's short workshop, Continuing with Etegami, which will be held on March 17th.

PAFA Etegami Workshop

On December 2, 2017  I was happy to lead an Etegami Workshop through the continuing education department at PAFA, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. I was very lucky to get a great group of students and we had a lot of fun and made a lot of excellent etegami. People learned to carve their own hanko (signature stamps) as well. A great day and a pleasure to be back at PAFA!

This studio space was absolutely perfect for group etegami.
