VIRTUAL WORKSHOP
Innovative Woodcut Methods: blocks, jigsaws and the laser cutter

Jan 12 - 29, 2021

Every Tuesday, Thursday & Friday, 1-4PM MST

Concept

Broaden your relief printmaking skills to include fun and innovative methods with laser cutters. This exciting virtual workshop examines how laser-cut blocks can expand the possibilities of a playful and multilayered approach to making hand-pulled prints. We move fluidly between digital and analog processes, exploring and learning how each can inform our printmaking process and contribute to a flexible, evolving practice of art making. Individual files are laser etched at Anderson Ranch and mailed back to students to print with by hand. Everyone leaves the workshop with files, blocks, finished prints, and ideas of how to integrate technology into their printmaking practices.

This three week workshop will use Zoom Video Conferencing software (download free from Zoom.com) to facilitate the class sessions. An Anderson Ranch staff member will coordinate the online platform. Further details will be emailed to registrants.

Screen Printing Using Dry Pigments

Miguel Aragon

Tuition $1,150
Code R0101-23

This workshop explores the exciting and exploratory process of directly screen-printing dry color pigments such as pastels, charcoal, and graphite to develop imagery on paper and other substrates. This experimental approach embraces exploration and stretches the conventional applications of the medium by using image alteration to create a dynamic series of varied multiples of an image. Imagery can be hand-generated or photographic. The technique is introduced as a single process procedure, which can then be used to investigate new ways to discover print qualities to strengthen images and concepts.

Layering Color and Light: Woodcut and Monoprint

Jean Gumpper

Tuition $1,150
Code R0202-23

This rigorous, engaging printmaking workshop focuses on monoprint and woodcut methods with an emphasis on layering color to produce luminous results. We begin with observational studies from the natural world and explore trace, stencil, painterly, and multiple plate monotype methods. Woodcut techniques are then added to layer transparent and opaque color, creating a radiant sense of space. We make both editioned and unique prints, alternating between structure and improvisation. This back-and-forth serves as the format for the course as we combine printing using a woodcut matrix with a variety of monoprint methods.

Electro-Etching: Exploring Surface

Malgorzata Oakes

Tuition $1,150
Code R0303-23

In this experimental workshop, open to all levels, students learn and explore various electro-etching processes. Emphasis is on safer intaglio methods and the fundamentals of electrolysis, from traditional methods of electro-line and electro-tint to innovative approaches that result in rich textures and layered imagery. Processes introduce participants to the science behind electro-etching, a non-toxic work environment, and proper equipment setup and maintenance. Students are encouraged to experiment with various resists, including BIG ground, in addition to working with salt and unconventional mark-making. By the end of this workshop, participants will have printed small editions of their own unique work embedded with various new processes.
