Printmaking for Creative Collage

Saturday, Apr 13, 2019 at 10:00am

Waterfall Arts
256 High Street
Belfast, ME 04915

$150

This unusual course, led by Abbie Read and Karin Otto, will be a two-day workshop suitable for complete beginners as well as those with some experience. Participants will learn about both printmaking and collage separately, and then experiment using them together. The themes of landscape, architecture and/or natural forms will be our starting points. Printmaking is a very exciting medium, not always predictable, but highly rewarding. You will learn a range of different techniques, including collagraphic, simple intaglio, and mono printing. The workshop will guide you through each process and you will be given time to explore each one. You will be using both water-based and oil-based printing inks. The collage portion of the course is designed to help you explore how to imply depth and form by using the variety of work created on the first day of the workshop. The collage day will focus on learning the art of simplification, the importance of shape and line, and how to use a scalpel blade, scissors or tearing to ‘draw’.
