First Full day of class, 09/01/11

Looking forward to discussing ideas and themes with the new printmakers tomorrow. we're also going to do a collaborative monotype so that everyone will be prepared to execute their own image. The monotype above is from last spring's class. Anna Loos created this print based on her theme of home. She carried that theme throughout the semester creating some interesting images in intaglio and relief.

See you in the morning.

Fall Semester 2011

Welcome back to the printshop. There has been a lot of activity in the shop getting it transformed from a paper-making studio back into a printmaking studio. Wende, in particular, has done a Herculean job with that transformation. There were some really beautiful things created this summer with the paper makers, and I know that energy will continue as we explore intaglio and relief during this fall semester. I have not posted a syllabus yet because it's still under construction, although there aren't that many changes, I've simply been dragging my feet a little through the final remnants of summer. So we'll all have a fresh look at what's in store during our first gathering tomorrow. See you in the shop bright and early with the coffee pot perking!
