In ‘Experimental Printmaking,’ students will spend the week exploring solarplate, relief, monotype and other forms of printmaking, learning how printmaking is a highly versatile and expressive medium that transforms original ideas into multiple images. Focusing on utilizing the tools of the printmaker, your potential and creativity as an artist, the simplicity of plate processing, and producing creative artwork, you will be introduced to a variety of printmaking techniques and practices as well as participate in critiques. You will also experience the unique sensitivity of printmaking, using an intaglio and pin presses to create and print your images. We will conclude with a class exhibit, critique, and celebration.

For the Teens (grades 9–12), ‘Intaglio Printmaking’ will explore the heritage of the intaglio printmaker utilizing modern and historic concepts and techniques to influence your approach to contemporary printmaking. Intaglio (solarplate) printmaking is a highly versatile and expressive contemporary medium, transforming original drawings, paintings, and collage as well as photographs, JPEG’S, and copier art into high quality etchings. Enjoy making plates in the sun, developing the plate with ordinary tap water, and using the intaglio press to create limited edition etchings. We will focus on utilizing the tools of the printmaker, your creativity as an artist, the simplicity of plate processing, and the production of professional artwork. You will be introduced to a variety of techniques, printmaking practices, and participate in critiques. The workshop will conclude with a class exhibit, critique, and celebration. Solar printmaking will appeal to artists of all media, such as printmakers, photographers, and painters.
