  • Exploring the Reduction Block Print Workshop with Arlene Bandes
    October 11, 6:30-9:30PM, $55
    Reduction block printmaking, often credited to Pablo Picasso, results in unique, colorful prints. Create beautiful prints using Styrofoam plates, Akua water-soluble inks and archival paper. Manipulate the plates with different engraving tools, stencil knives and scissors. Explore the many uses of Akua inks to create transparency and unexpected intersections of color and line. Open to all levels.

  • Collaborative Drawing with Grey Held
    Saturday 10/21, 10AM-1PM, $55
    Do you find your painting getting “stuck in the mud?” Want to achieve the luminosity of the masters' canvasses? Learn methods and techniques to clean up your palette and your painting. Open your mind to the masters’ knowledge that contemporary art schools won’t teach you, in this class that combines traditional techniques with a contemporary flair.

  • Unorthodox Monoprint with Catherine Kernan
    Saturday 10/21, 10AM-4PM, $195
    Throw tradition out the window and expand your printmaking mind, using Akua soy-based intaglio inks and relief blocks for monoprints. Carve wood or linoleum to establishing a basic vocabulary of images, then see how the blocks interact through spontaneous interplay and controlled accidents. Learn to print the block’s negative space; print a single block with multiple colors using viscosity rolls; interrupt one block with another producing unexpected intersections. Utilize the unique qualities of Akua inks to make unorthodox moves from block to plate and back before any ink hits the paper.
