About this Workshop:

Ready to experiment further with both drypoint etching and chine collé and take it to the next level? Join us for a 2-day intermediate workshop to dive deeper into the process! Students will spend the first session developing their image, learning to proof the acrylic plate, and then make adjustments. The second session will be spent working up a specific plan with the chine colle’ elements and the acrylic drypoint plate. Using prior knowledge of drypoint (or other intaglio process), inking, adding collage elements, and printing, students will develop prints with intention and meaning and gain competence with the process. The students will also learn to create a registration system, prepare chine colle’ papers prior to inking the plate, and be introduced to two-color printing. Students will complete at least two plates and have six to eight prints made by the end of the second session. 

Level: Intermediate – Introduction to Etching, Introduction to Drypoint and Chine Collé, or similar experience (6 hours) is required. 

Registration closes November 28, 2023. Material fees are included with your registration to cover the supplies provided in class. Students may/will need to gather/purchase additional materials for class (see the materials list below). This list will also be provided with the registration confirmation email.

Kim 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.
