New approaches to the traditional techniques of printmaking have been developed to make the process easier, safer and faster. Some improve upon historical techniques, some the invention of new materials altogether. In this two-week ses-sion we will explore ways to make images on conventional printmaking papers. Methods include mixed-media work in-cluding intaglio, linocut, collagraph, chine collé; and polyester paper substitute for lithography. These processes are considered non-toxic and allow for the construction of printing plates that require no acid and printing that requires no solvents. These processes are suitable for many types of image making, including drawing, direct painting, collage and even found objects. Class time is structured to accommodate demonstrations followed by guided student work time to explore the techniques. Individual critiques include aesthetic development and ways for the students to incorporate these new ideas and techniques intotheir prints.Some printmaking experience is helpful but not required.
For those spending the weekend we will have a field trips to Salzburg and Bad Gastein, picturesquely situated in a high valley of the Hohe Tauern mountain range, it is known for the Bad Gastein Waterfall and a variety of Belle Époque hotel buildings.
