This series of classes offers an overview of printmaking in its various forms. It offers to beginning printmakers and any curious artist a sampling of some of the most common printmaking techniques. Instructors will offer a succinct and complete introduction to each process in a totally hands-on workshop. NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY! This is a great opportunity for artists in other areas to try their hand at this fabulous versatile art form.
Take one class, or two, or all 4 in the series! Beware! once you get a taste of printmaking you may well get hooked.
Intro to Monotype, September 28, 10 - 4 with a lunch break
- Monotype is a great way for painters to expand their repertoire and get immersed in printmaking. Monotypes are one of a kind prints made by applying (and removing) inks with a paintbrush or a roller to a plate and then printing the image onto paper. Additional layers can be created by applying other elements to the plate and passing it through the press one or more times, resulting in rich, layered, complex prints.
Intro to Drypoint Etching, October 19, 10 - 4 with a lunch break
- This class is perfect for illustrators and people who love to draw who want to learn about printmaking. Drypoint is an acid-free, non-toxic intaglio technique that's been around since the 1400s, and it's still going strong. Images are incised into a plate using a sharp or hard-tipped tool, like an etching needle, creating lines and raised burrs that capture ink for printing. The plate is inked up like a traditional etching plate, and printed on a printing press, resulting in a beautiful, rich, image with bold lines.
Intro to Relief Linocuts, November 9, 10 - 4 with a lunch break
- Explore ways of creating striking images with this simple yet powerful print medium process. Carving images into linoleum with attention to line and texture and then inking up the plate with color produces graphic effects. This class will explore the diverse range of ways which artists use this direct process, very similar to stamping. (No previous experience required)
Intro to Collagraph, December 7, 10 - 4 with a lunch break
- In this introductory class we will explore the many possibilities of the collagraph print. Collagraphs are beautiful, often experimental prints made from collaging textured items onto a matboard or similar surface, then sealing it and applying inks to print it onto paper.
