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.
