Sustaining Creative Strategies in Printmaking
Jul 4 - 8, 2022
This unique opportunity for advanced printmakers creates a forum for dialog about how to curate your practice to push your work into a strong direction. 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; Elliott Hundley will join daily from 1-5PM.
To attend a Master Class workshop, a portfolio review is due by Friday, February 11th, 2022. Instructions on how to submit your portfolio are as follows:

Additionally, if six months have passed since completing the Moderna or Pfizer series or two months have passed since receiving the J & J vaccine, then a booster is also required. Ideally the booster would have been administered at least two weeks prior to coming to Anderson Ranch.

Collagraph: Touch Seen
Participants in this exploratory, combined-technique printmaking course create a series of prints while developing imagery and a tactile familiarity with the medium. The creative design experience of composing images in layers of ink printed in registration is both controlled and improvisational. Collagraph matrices are sculpturally constructed by collaging found objects that, through the printing process, are transfigured from mundane matter into a graphic reality of color, texture, shape, line and the artist’s inky initiative on paper. The possibilities are open for making small editions, variable monoprints and unique monotypes.
Open to All
Students of any skill and knowledge level.

Textile Surface Printing
Decorating textiles is a global tradition with varying styles and functions. Students immerse themselves in the practice of fabric printing and experiment with how to transform textiles with various printmaking and dye techniques as well as learn the basics of screen printing and block printing onto fabric. Participants create and print their own designs onto fabrics using printmaking inks and Procion dyes. Fabrics are enhanced with reflective foil printing and dye baths to create patterns that sit on the surface and invent images within the woven threads. Students are welcome to bring their own light-colored fabrics of natural fiber: cotton; linen; and/or silk.
Open to All
Students of any skill and knowledge level.

Linoleum and Monotype: Merging Process and Imagery
This experimental workshop explores multi-layered images through the use of traditional relief printing from linoleum blocks and one-of-a-kind monotype prints from plexiglass plates. Students have the opportunity to explore and combine both techniques in order to create a series of unique prints with a rich variety of mark making, pattern and texture. While exploring these techniques, students are encouraged to work from source material and develop their ideas to create prints that are both formally beautiful and conceptually engaging.
