About this Workshop:

This workshop will introduce the beginners to the technique of drypoint etching and how to integrate “chine collé” elements (a technique of combining tissue-thin paper with a larger, thicker paper support) to their prints. The students will learn how to prepare their plate, develop an image, plan out the printing and chine collé processes, learn various registration techniques, and obtain printshop maintenance lessons.  This workshop is a foundation workshop to build upon more complex printmaking techniques and to generate creativity and enthusiasm for further printmaking studies.

Level: Beginner

Registration closes December 2, 2022 to allow time for materials to be purchased and prepared. Material fees are included with your registration to cover items provided in class, including plates, ink, tarlatan, ink, newsprint, and the film, ink, and labor for printing your positive images for exposure.

Kimberley Bursic is a painter, printmaker, and collage artist.  She studied at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, where she received a  BFA in printmaking and book arts.  She relocated west to Washington State University to complete my MFA,  focusing on printmaking, monotype and large format book structures.  Her time and travels in Washington and the Pacific Northwest ignited her interest in landscape as a visual language. After graduate school, she worked on the Umatilla Indian Reservation at Crow’s Shadow Institute, a non-profit printmaking and art studio.  Then she was offered a position at Tyler Graphics in NY as an etching printer. There she learned how to make fine art prints for artists such as Helen Frankenthaler, Frank Stella,  Al Held, and John Walker. After working many years as a professional printer, she found painting to be a good fit for her personal and artistic needs. She regularly incorporates both into her works on paper.
