About this Workshop:

Learn how to translate your drawings into a two-color screenprint in this two-day workshop! Students will practice and experiment with drawing techniques using a variety of media, and then gain an understanding of the ins and outs of Pyramid’s screenprinting studio.

On day one, Dominick Rabrun will lead students through simple drawing exercises and design conversations that will encourage the creation of designs that are bold, practical, and communicative of each individual’s vision. Students will have one week to continue to work on their drawings between sessions. On day two, Gretchen Schermerhorn will lead students through the process of transforming their drawings into a two-color screenprint. By learning how to ‘register’ colors and work with color transparency, the prints will have a unique depth and a level of sophistication. Students will leave with a small edition of 10 prints and an understanding of how to repeat the process. 

Level: Beginner – no experience necessary!

Registration closes March 28, 2022. Material fees were included with your registration to cover items supplied in class, including ink, paper, transparencies, drawing materials, and bristol board. Students will receive a small list of additional items to bring to class.

YOUR INSTRUCTORS:

 

Dominick Rabrun is an artist, teacher, writer, producer, director, and general maker of things. His work seeks to link and explain the fragmented sections of his unique life and experiences. On a personal level, much of his worldview was shaped by his status as a First-Generation immigrant, childhood trauma, and growing up in a deeply conservative Christian household. On a professional level, much of his processes were shaped by 12 years of experience working as an IT specialist for the US government. Top these off with natural inclinations towards technology, video games, biology, music, and art education; at the intersection of all these points, you get Dominick’s artistic practice. His art is first and foremost an attempt to create a language or system wherein he can compartmentalize all of his competing inspirations. He finds that allowing them a space to inform and interact with one another serves as his greatest catalyst for creative inspiration and evolution.
