This two-week intensive delves into a range of printmaking techniques in order to explore the hybrid print. Students incorporate etching, gum transfers, chine colle and monoprinting. The results are multi layered prints that allow for the best of each technique to be celebrated. Students also work with both hand-generated and photographic imagery, and embrace technical exploration and experimentation. Each method is presented then students investigate ways to combine the techniques. Students discover which print qualities are emboldened when combined in a single image and produce works that reflect a synthesis of process, layering, composition and ideas.
Media & Techniques:
Students are introduced to basic intaglio/etching techniques, gum transfer printing, chine colle and monoprinting. They utilize a combination of hand-drawn, graphic and photographic imagery. Students also explore the chine-colle process.
The first week begins with technical demonstrations and introductions to contemporary visual examples of each process being presented. As students progress, they combine techniques. The second week focuses on students individualized work and applying new technical abilities in experimental ways.
