Collaborative Relief and Color Print Workshop


Details Fee Breakdown:
Tuition: $650
Material Fee: $85

Relief printing is one of the oldest printmaking techniques that can be used in the creation of infinite compositions and variations. Woodblock printing and linocut printing are ideal for the rapid creation of bold images made up of patterns, textures and graphic forms. The immediacy of the process also lends itself to improvisational and chance operations utilizing found materials and objects. Throughout this workshop you will learn traditional carving and printing techniques as well as improvisational skills that will lead to exciting and unexpected visual effects. You will learn to develop your own images but will also have access to the instructor’s vast library of graphic imagery. This collaborative approach will accelerate the production and learning process. With dozens of preexisting images and patterns, you will quickly understand the use of color theory in relief printmaking. Specifically, how two colors of ink layer to create a third and the way underlying colors influence the next colors printed over one another. By the end of the workshop participants will have generated an extensive series of limited edition and one-of-a-kind colorful prints.

*Workshops run from 9:00am to 5:00pm each day
