The natural world is filled with inspiration for printmaking! This workshop is a refreshing and nurturing journey inspired by nature while exploring color, prints and book arts.
The workshop will begin with a simple book arts project to create two hand-bound journals for visual notes and thoughts. Using these as starting points, ideas will be translated into prints and included in a hand-made portfolio.
During the course of the workshop participants will be introduced to monotype, collagraph, and drypoint techniques for making prints.
Weekly projects will address abstract and representational interpretations of nature, the landscape, organic forms, natural elements, close-up imagery. Emphasis will be given to composition, print format, movement, pattern, rhythm and working in series. In addition to demonstrations, the workshop will include time for sharing and feedback from the instructor and fellow participants.
Section 1 is geared more towards beginners, with more time spent on printmaking demonstrations and hands-on projects and less time on group discussion and individual project development.
Section 2 is geared more towards intermediate and advanced students with more time spent on group discussion and individual project development and less time on basic printmaking and book making demonstrations.
