Contemporary printmaking is a class for all levels of expertise. The main goal is to learn the fundaments of printmaking, from technique to appreciation in an open and welcoming environment. The class works as an open studio allowing the students to work at their own pace, allowing me to work one on one. The techniques to be explored are relief printmaking, (woodcuts and linocuts), drypoint and introduction to etching and aquatint, and, for more advanced students intro to lithography.

This class is great for beginners in printmaking, as well as experienced printmaking artists with non-typical ideas or people interested in pop art.
The idea of the class is to integrate printmaking techniques and qualities in your personal work. Unlike other print classes, this course is more focused on the aesthetic and visual possibilities of printmaking, and not the “hard rules”. This class is not about what you can't do but is about all the different approaches of printmaking techniques.

A live model will be present during the final five sessions, when students will have an opportunity to concentrate on working with details. Academic drawing and sketching are fundamental for the development of a successful drawing technique and an excellent way of gaining hand control over the line and honing fine motor skills.

In this course, students of all levels of artistic skills will create egg-tempera paintings by exploring forgotten medieval techniques of making Byzantine icons. We will learn how to apply gold leaf on handcrafted wood-panels and mix pigments with home-made emulsion and gesso. We will also learn how and why these ancient artistic methods influenced contemporary art and visual culture.  For this reason, Byzantine art theory of color, drawing, and composition will be used to discover a new artistic medium and mode seeing images for creative self-expression.  This will be done first via a series of exercises to understand the steps of painting exemplary Byzantine icons. In following this historical art form, students will paint next a “personal icon” on a wood-panel based on images and visual composition of their choice.

Lithography is a planographic printmaking technique that does not depend on the relief of the printmaking block. Lithography captures the fresh, dynamic drawn mark. Stone lithography enables printmakers to print lines and tones drawn with a pencil, drawing stick and brushes; polyester plate lithography uses permanent marker to create the drawn image. With some computer savvy, artists can use their photographs to create and print images with polyester plates.

You must be 18 or older to attend this course.

The beauty of line, the wonder of pattern, the dynamics of colour, the subtly of form. Artists gravitate to different printmaking processes because they express different elements of art. This print class introduces students to a variety of printmaking techniques including relief (linocut), intaglio (drypoint and collograph) and planographic (polyester plate lithography), enabling them to explore their own imagery through the versatility of print.

We will use soya-based inks (with the exception of polyester plate lithography), which clean up with soap and water.

Embracing the challenge of working from the live nude model via a series of exercises and demonstrations, the course focuses on the rib cage, pelvis and thigh, knee and lower leg, foot, shoulder girdle, arm, hand, neck and head. Using the traditional tools of charcoal, nib and ink, students will acquire the practical knowledge of the old masters in seeing light and form to shape and inform a personal, artistic approach to the human body.

Calling upon influences from diverse schools of artistic thoughts, desires and techniques, the art of crafty skills to draw, paint and re-construct the reality for all special occasions is a truly organic form of expression that reflects the daily lives of its creators. Drawing with a flash of a prompt inspiration, a skillful use of all available materials – watercolour mixes, gouache, acrylic (metallic), ink, oil pastels, wax resists, markers, etc., the art of illustration embodies the notion of that beauty, sense of humour and positive vibes that should be widely recommended, especially during these times. Textile designs, patterns for the printing on an apron or tote bags, hyper-realistic images of food for publishing your own customized cookbook, and much more to investigate!
