Niki Haas of the Haas Brothers explores aesthetic and formal themes related to nature, science fiction, sexuality, psychedelia, and color theory in prolific materials. Since its founding in 2010, the Haas Brothers have evolved from fabricators and collaborators to nimble cross-pollinators in creative disciplines including fashion, film, music, art, and design. They apply their unique approach to a multitude of materials, ranging from brass, bronze, beads, porcelain, and fur to highly technical resins and polyurethane. Often functional in form, their work continues to challenge the slippery divide between art and design.

Creative Approaches to Printmaking
Nikolai Haas, Brian Shure
This unique opportunity for advanced printmakers creates a forum for dialog on curating practice to give strong direction to artistic work. Artists are invited to work on self-directed projects in the printmaking area of their choosing while receiving technical support in tandem with critical feedback. Opportunities for technical demonstrations, group critique, and one-on-one mentorship make up the structure of this master class. *Brian Shure will be present for the entire duration of the workshop; Niki Haas will join daily from 9am – 3pm. Portfolios will be accepted on a rolling basis. Instructions on how to submit your portfolio are as follows: Submit digital images of your work in one single PDF (as opposed to individual JPG attachments) via email directly to Lindsey Yeager, Studio Coordinator of Painting, Drawing & Printmaking, at email@example.com The single PDF must be less than 10 MB to be considered. Include 5-10 images of your work with image identification that lists the title, media, dimensions and year of each image. While not required, it is helpful to see an artist statement addressing the images you send. Include “Advanced Portfolio Review” in the subject line of your email, as well as the title of the workshop for which you are applying. Please provide a phone number where you can be reached and a link to your website. Submissions that do not follow the requested directions will not be reviewed. If you are accepted, a deposit of $650 will be required within one week of notification of acceptance to hold your place. Housing will be assigned on a space-available basis upon enrollment.
