A photographic image can be altered, enhanced, disrupted, augmented, and expanded with printmaking in such a way that can add meaning, message, and an enhanced visual experience for the viewer. If you have ever wanted to put your hand to your images with ink, paint, or other materials, this is the course for you. You will learn to visualize layers, get down and dirty creatively, and deploy a printmaking skill set to execute your vision of revealing, concealing, and augmenting your imagery in new and exciting ways.
This course explores the potential of images to take on a new life in the inky world of printmaking where photographic images and transfers are combined with inks in the forms of monoprints, stencils, collagraphs, and other techniques. In the span of a week, you will explore a variety of these techniques to expand the potential of your imagery within the framework of printmaking and photo transfers.
In our workshop, we will begin with photographic images as the basic building block on which layers of monoprints, stencils, and other techniques are combined to augment and build interesting intersections of ideas, chance, and expressive mark making.
Printmaking is a traditional artistic process in which one transfers images from one or more matrices onto another surface, most often paper.
