Sunday series of 3 silkscreen workshops
November 3, 10;30-2:30
$300 or $250 for Y members for the full series.
At D.R.A.W. Studio @ YMCA, 507 Broadway, Kingston
In this 3 day workshop participants will learn how to prepare photographic images for silkscreen printing by exploring methods to change continuous tone photos into halftone black and white images. They will expose several screens and create several exploratory prints using their photographic images.
Bring a computer with Photoshop installed, basic understanding of Photoshop is good enough, I’ll walk you through it.
Each participant will be loaned up to 3 screens. If you want to save your screen, you can purchase it from the D.R.A.W. or bring your own. Image sizes will be limited to 14” x 16”.
“My passion is to start with something familiar, and take it beyond familiar. I like to incorporate the uncontrollable in my work, and welcome accidental shifts along the way. I work with image, process, and a variety of materials in order to push the confines of art making to reinvent, rather than reproduce. Often I try to “mess up” an image anyway I can, and feel that an artwork should be pushed beyond the comfort zone, and then brought back under control, or maybe not.”
