Mixed Media Printmaking
Sep 13 - 24, 2021
Take an exploratory approach in this exciting printmaking workshop that introduces a variety of relief, intaglio and monotype techniques, each building on the last with an emphasis on experimentation. Students investigate uncommon methods along with traditional techniques, working in combination with stencils, color viscosity, layered prints and collage. Combining processes to create dynamic and rich composition and surface textures can facilitate the emerging of a rich new visual language. Our goal is to expand image vocabulary, build technical knowledge and maximize the possibilities with printmaking.
