Sculptural Glass with Imagery - Gail Stouffer
May 5-7, 2017 (10 am - 5 pm) — The focus of this workshop is on the development and printing of images in tall, transparent, glass sculptures. We’ll work with photo manipulation software, glass enamels and powder (Bullseye Glass) applications, and apply direct painting techniques to our imagery on multiple layers of glass. The image layers will then be fired, stacked, and fired again to create thick slabs of transparent glass. These will then be cut, ground, polished and mounted. Students will become skilled at preparing personalized images, creating silk screens, layering images, and mastering the firing schedules that deliver success, plus effective kiln casting and cold working techniques. Each student will cut, grind and polish their pieces, and learn how to create and mount their base pieces. Visit website

Monotype Studio Intensive with Stuart Shils
May 19-21, 2017 (9am-5pm) — Experience the joys and possibilities of monotype printmaking with an emphasis on color and abstraction in the shaping of the visual image. Through the monotype process, students will understand pictorial structure (design) and mood as the keys to visual coherence and graphic strength. Working from window views and in-studio drawings, students will employ graphic shorthand and visual memory to generate imagery that captures the essence of places and moments through color and form, exploring the intimate relationship between observation and abstract structure. Rather than enforcing Shils’ style, instruction will encourage artists to create prints that promote their personal voice and expression. Emphasis will be placed on the priority of the image over “correct” technique and how-to instruction. Visit website

Monotype Printmaking
May 19-21, 2017 (9am-4pm) — A monotype is a painting or drawing that has been printed on paper. Because monotypes are done quickly, the application of paint is bold and loose and can be very expressive. This workshop will cover a variety of techniques used in creating monotypes including additive, subtractive, ghost prints and chine-colle. Using demonstration and guidance, each student will learn how to compose a monotype using all design elements such as line, color, value, edge, and texture. This high-energy workshop will afford students with a truly fun experience while acquiring critical skill sets that can be used in any art form moving forward. Monotype is the “painterly print” and is a rewarding and exciting method of artistic expression. Visit website

Moku Hanga, An Intro to Japanese Woodblock Printing
September 28 - October 1, 2017 (Thurs–Sat 9am–4pm; Sun 9am–noon) — Moku Hanga, meaning “wood print,” is a simple, centuries old Japanese technique employing water-based ink, basic carving and rubbing tools, beautiful Japanese paper, and fine-grained wood.

Alfred will teach you to hand carve and print your unique drawing from fine-grained Shina Plywood onto beautiful Japanese paper, a skill you can continue to use to make prints for many years. No experience necessary. You are encouraged to bring photos or drawings you can use in creating your print. Materials fee covers papers and other supplies. Visit website

Making a Reduction Linocut

Judy will have plenty of 6”x8” pre-cut linoleum, plus brayers, a registration system, plenty of archival papers and easy to clean up inks (Speedball, Caligo, Akua).

Relief Printing on Vandercook Proof Presses
September 30, 2017 (9am–4pm) — Learn the basics of letterpress printing while exploring texture through various relief printing techniques. Learn to use one of May’s four Vandercook proof presses in her Mineral Point studio. The Vandercook can print anything type-high, which makes it perfectly suited for relief printing. Examine printing methods such as collagraphs, pressure printing, and polymer plates. We’ll focus on process and experimentation while making interesting and unique texture collages from found objects (objet trouvé), cut stencils, and more. Then we’ll put our handmade textures to work and get busy printing. Create stunning studies of texture and image - the shape and form your project takes is up to you. But above all else, have fun while learning, printing, and experimenting! Visit website

Wandering with India Flint: New Mexico
October 1-11, 2017 — India will be traveling to New Mexico from her farm in the deep south of Australia to share her wandering spirit and creative gifts with us.
