About this Workshop:

Looking for ways to explore printmaking beyond the singular page or edition? This hands-on course will teach you the basics of color monoprinting and unique methods for collage. While creating our mixed-media prints we will consider approaches to mark-making, composition, and color. You will leave class with a small series of unique prints.

Level: Beginner – no previous experience necessary

Registration closes May 21, 2024. Material fees are included with your registration, though you’ll also need to gather a small list of additional/optional items for class.

YOUR INSTRUCTOR:

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.
