Materials such as cardboard, recycled wood, and plastics will be used and incorporated into making printing plates. The class will also cover encaustic collagraph, carborundum printing, some silkscreen, and drypoint and investigate how these processes can be used with found materials. The class uses non-toxic materials and multi-color printmaking will be covered. The class will look at contemporary artists who work create using experimental print work via PowerPoint presentations. Each artist will receive one-to-one consultations during the week-long class along with individual instruction.
