Printmaking Without a Press

In this workshop students learn how to easily make high quality original prints without a press, and with easy soap and water cleanup. Using acrylic paints and other water-based media, you will learn several methods of printmaking without a press, and learn how to combine these methods for unlimited potential. All methods can be used on lighter weight papers for use in collage or other paper arts, or on heavier printmaking paper as finished art prints. Lightweight fabrics can also be used. Experimenting and mixed media is encouraged! Demonstrations, slide presentation, and individual discussions will help each student to create work using their own aesthetic ideas.


 

2019 Workshops in my Guilford, CT studio
January & February dates TBD

Letting Go. The Joy of Collage!



All Levels
Medium: Collage
Collage is all about the joyful, experimental, and freeing process of cutting, arranging, and pasting painted papers, yet it’s a meaningful enough process to have satisfied Picasso, Braque, Matisse, and many other well-known artists. We will explore aspects of what makes strong and beautiful art through shape, value, line, texture, color and most importantly, variety & contrast.
Let go of your inner critic, come and have fun in a relaxed environment while enriching your visual skills. There are no mistakes in collage, only adjustments and revisions. All levels are welcome.
