About this Workshop:
Drypoints and Monotypes!
During this 2-day workshop students will be introduced to the exciting and inky world of printmaking! We’ll learn about the various techniques, styles, and tools of the printmaking trade through several demonstrations and hands-on activities. Students will design and print their own small edition using Pyramid’s professional presses.
At the end of the workshop, students will have a basic understanding of how to properly use the equipment and operate in a functioning community print studio. Students will also have the opportunity to learn more about becoming certified and using the studio independently beyond the class.
On Day 1, students will receive an overview of printmaking through a show-and-tell of examples and demos of how to use the equipment safely and how to pull a print. Then students will dive right into artmaking with an introduction to monotypes and drypoint intaglio.
On Day 2, students will dive right in to complete their drypoint and monotype projects. A brief demonstration of chine collé (a collage technique) will be given as an additional option for finalizing their work. At the end of the day, students will have several unique prints and an understanding of how to continue to explore these techniques
Registration closes March 25, 2023 and includes all necessary materials.
Please note: Students are responsible for providing their own lunch. A microwave and refrigerator are available for use.
