Our language brains and image brains operate differently as they allow us to feel feeling and make meaning.  In this workshop, we will explore different strategies for playing with text and image, representation and abstraction – looking for places of resonance, tension, and vibrations between them.  Words and images will be broken apart and reconfigured to find where the sparks fly.  Each day will host both writing and visual prompts, and we will explore both collaboration and chance operations as strategies for developing ideas, texts and compositions. We will also cover a variety of approaches to silkscreen printing including monoprints, paper stencils, photo emulsion, color mixing, variable editions, monoprinting, and  multi color registration. Participants will learn techniques through demos and also have the spaciousness and support to realize their own pieces.  The goal of the workshop is to give participants the strategies for working with text, image and abstraction, and the skills to use silkscreen printing as a place of play and discovery. All skill levels, and abilities welcome. 

In order to reserve your space in the workshop, we require a deposit. Registration is on a first-come first-served basis, and you can read about our refund and cancellation policies here.
