Intro to Monotype | Barbara McPhail

Intro to Monotype | Barbara McPhail

Sat, 3/2  10am - 4pm
Sun, 3/3 10am - 4pm

$180 non-associates / $153 associates ($35 for materials)

This workshop offers spontaneity and playfulness, while learning a unique technique of printmaking. Using tagboard, fabric, string and textured wallpaper, you will make artwork that may be representational or abstract. The materials are inked and placed onto inked plexiglass, and transferred with an etching press onto dampened paper. It is an excellent technique to learn at any age, and works well in classroom settings. Come with or without experience and discover the joy of this technique of monotype.

the penitentiary...that is making funny money using polymer
plates
. Choose the faces and monuments you think should be on
your bills. We will provide template to add them too. Learn a
printing process that brings relief in these hard times! And no, you
cannot use money printed here to pay for your class.

Please note: We will not be printing legal tender. The sole purpose
is to have fun, learn printmaking and make amazing stuff.

Mezzotint

Mezzotint | Judy Barringer

Sat, 11/10  10 AM 4 PM
Sun, 11/11 10 AM 4 PM

$180 non-associates / $153 associates ($35 for materials)

Mezzotint is a printmaking process of the intaglio family, technically a drypoint method. Mezzotint achieves tonality by roughening the plate with thousands of little pits made by a metal tool with small teeth, called a "rocker." The whole surface of the plate, usually copper, is roughened evenly, manually with the rocker, or mechanically. In printing, the tiny pits in the plate hold the ink when the face of the plate is wiped clean. Areas smoothed completely flat will not hold ink at all: such areas will print "white," that is, without ink. By varying the degree of smoothing, mid-tones between black and white can be created, hence the name mezzo-tinto which is Italian for "half-tone" or "halfpainted". This is called working from "dark to light", or the "subtractive" method. A high level of quality and richness in the print can be achieved.

In & Out of Sculptural Books

In & Out of Sculptural Books | Kumi Korf

$180 non-associates / $153 associates ($25 for materials)

Since 1985, when I dove into Artists' Books, my passion has been in
inventing new structures for my works, Turning Leaves is one of my
inventions. Imagine a box, cut it in quarters diagonally. Then we
have four empty spaces. They will be hinged to a piece of flat
cardboard so that they are connected. To cover and to fill the
empty spaces is where your artistry comes in. You could use your
own print proofs or purchased decorative papers, and collage
with 2- and 3-dimensional materials is encouraged. The spaces will
be filled with materials from nature (e.g., dry leaves, nuts, shells) or
perhaps a broken mirror (in the case of Turning Leaves). The
structure can be moved into many positions to become sculptural
and architectural.
