Art Educator Workshop: Printmaking Exploration (Summer 2015)

Art Educator Programs

Produce your own prints in MCAD's beautiful and expansive printmaking studio and spend a week of your own studio time on technical investigation and personal exploration. This week-long workshop for art educators will include demonstrations of intaglio, embossing, collagraph, and monotype printmaking techniques.

Learn intaglio processes on copper plates, including drypoint and etching; experiment with embossing, chine colle, and collagraph printing; and discover the monotype process, including how to print by hand and with a press.

A general overview will also include: Paper preparation; inks; registration techniques; how to incorporate basic digital printing with printmaking; different types of inexpensive printing presses; and gadgets that teachers can bring back to their classrooms.

This workshop will also include optional time for informal small group sessions for art educators who teach the similar subjects or age groups to share lesson plans. / Non-toxic, water-based inks will be used. / Facilities fee of $50 and materials fee of $50 in addition to class tuition. / Open to students ages 18 and above.

What to Bring: Pen or pencil; sketchbook; sketches or ideas for personal projects; preferred drawing tools; ruler; scissors; X-Acto knife; bone folder; and tracing paper. / A complete list of suggested materials will be emailed to students roughly one week prior to the class start.

What to Wear: Clothes appropriate for messy creativity or an apron; closed-toed shoes.

Art Educator Workshops are not eligible for the early or multiple class registration discounts.
