Experience the beautiful line qualities achieved with copper in this less-toxic etching class. We will be using a ferric chloride solution along with Andrew Baldwin’s BIG ground. Plus, we will be printing with Caligo and Charbonnel soap & water-washable inks. Drypoint and alternative mark-making techniques will also be covered.
This 2.5 hour workshop will dive into the moving parts of an artist's grant application from budding idea, to proposal development, partnerships, budget, outcomes, and reporting. I ask only that you bring an idea, a real-life project you've been pining to launch or a made-up creative endeavor you'll use to work through the layers of a successful grant application. There's no limit on which artistic media you choose for your project idea.
This two-day screen printing class is open to all experience levels. Printing on dimensional, non-traditional materials such as wood, cylinders, balloons and more, each student will learn the correct methods for preparing and printing on these less-than-usual surfaces.
