Exploring Printmaking

Tuesday, October 1, 2019, 6:00 PM

Join local artist Darren Chittick for this three-session exploration of printmaking on Tuesdays, October 1, 8, and 15 from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm. During these gatherings, you will learn printmaking techniques, experience fine art supplies, and move at a rhythm that invites lingering in the process. This will not only be a time for learning; this will be a time apart from the rigors of every day. We'll gather with intention and enjoy creative space with community. In week one, you'll create monotypes using Gelli plates, Akua inks, and found and made objects to alter your images on the plate before you pull your prints. This will introduce you to a number of key skills that you will employ in the following weeks while making some stunning pieces to take home. You will also spend some time with the materials, getting to know them and learning to recognize the value of quality materials in your creative space. In weeks two and three, you'll have a choice to create either a linocut relief plate or drypoint etchings. During this time, you'll produce a plate(s) from a source image that will have been explained during the first week. From that work, you'll then create prints that are either monoprint (a series with a repeated element) or an edition.  This class will include all materials and tools needed to produce your work. You will take home the prints and plates that you have created. You will not take home tools or unused materials. This class is appropriate for creatives and artists of all levels ages 16 and older, and you need have had no experience with printmaking to succeed. Each session will build on the last, so do commit to making each class. The 3-week session is $100.  There will be no refunds given for partial attendance.
