This course is a three-day immersion into monotype printmaking, with an emphasis on color and an awareness of abstraction as the point of departure for shaping an image. Studio work will be combined with drawing from nature as the source for developing the foundation of the participant’s visual responses.

Each day, rapid drawing notation and an awareness of visual memory, will provide imagery to be included in the ongoing work in the print studio. The class will be an informed exploration of the deeper processes of image making and design. Participants are expected to be mid range to advanced in artistic ability, not necessarily trained “print makers,” but must be familiar with drawing, painting or printmaking as visual languages.

Advanced Participants Only – Master Class Participants Must Provide CCP with CV and Examples of Previous Work – Please call Elisabeth Walden, Education Coordinator at 203-899-7999 to apply. To register http://contemprints.org/index.php/component/civicrm/?task=civicrm/event/info&reset=1&id=18.
