Collaborative Printmaking (SSI)
Start: Monday, June 3, 2013
New York , NY 10128
This course places special focus on collaboration. First-time and advanced printmakers alike join forces with a master printer to develop custom-fit collaborative projects that foster the student?s artistic intent. We start with portfolio reviews to gain insight into each student?s sensibilities and potential approach to the printing press. The Academy?s well-stocked print-shop is equipped with a press perfectly suited for printing mono-prints, wood and linoleum reliefs, dry-points, and etchings.
Introductory lessons can be developed in each of these mediums depending on students? prior experience. Experimentation with both traditional and unconventional materials is encouraged.
