Exploring Printmaking Art Camp

With Allison Doherty.

​This class supports the creativity, development and expression of young artists through the exploration of traditional and experimental printmaking techniques.  Mastery of tools and materials will provide students with the confidence to find their artistic voices.  This class can be tailored to the interests of those attending. All materials are provided.  

An introduction to several printmaking techniques including monoprinting, relief block printing and dry-point etching.

Monotype: A unique print is a one-of-a-kind transfer of an inked or painted image from a Plexiglas plate to paper pressure or by means of a press. Sometimes there is enough ink or paint residue left on the plate surface to pull a second, much lighter print. This is called a “ghost”. Each transfer is unique and cannot be exactly duplicated. 

Relief Block Printing: The transfer of drawings and compositions that are cut into soft linoleum using carving tools and run a proof. 

Dry-Point Etching: "Drawing" into Plexiglas sheets with a metal scribe, ink the sheets and print the results.  This technique can be combined with other printmakingpossibilities, such as chine collé or with drawing to create a multi-layered final piece.

Camp runs Monday-Friday.
