“Making your Mark” Workshop

 

 

“This exciting class will provide participants with hands-on experience in the art of building and printing images,” said Phyllis Korab, Cultural Affairs Director.  The workshop will begin with a discussion of contemporary works that use printmaking as a tool, followed by a demonstration of simple monoprint, collagraph, and relief techniques. All of the techniques learned can be completed indoors or out, without a printing press and using only a small set of easy-to-transport tools.  Creating monotypes, which is a one-of-a-kind type of print, will be the focus of the hands-on portion of the class.

 

“For nearly ten years, I have taught art in marginal spaces – from prisons to hospital waiting rooms – and currently work with disabled adults. At the core of my practice is a deep respect for the innate equality and limitless potential of every person,” stated Burns.

 

Fast, flexible, and adaptive portable approaches for building and printing images will be explored as tools for documentation, social commentary and community-building. Participants will work together to create a series of large-scale collaborative prints, and a print to take home.
