The starting point of this workshop will be the elemental question of motivation and how to make work that honors your personal aesthetic, and expresses your concerns, fears, hopes and desires in an effective way. Through a series of guided exercises, students will explore mark making using a variety of simple printmaking processes ranging from monoprints, collagraph, drypoint, stencilling and image transfer techniques to create a series of related prints. All of these techniques are non-toxic, direct processes that are easy to master. Each technique will be introduced and students will have the option of in-depth exploration of a process which best fits their conceptual and artistic ends. We’ll also have the opportunity to explore an effective way to introduce text into our prints using handwriting, hand cut alphabets and hand stamping with wood type.
