Beginning Printmaking / Introduction à la gravure - Intro (SAT, 9:30AM-4:30PM)
Register 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 relief (linocut), intaglio (drypoint), and planographic (polyester plate lithography) techniques, enabling them to explore their own imagery through the versatility of print. Use of soya based inks, which clean up with soap and water. Basic tools and materials are provided. Bring visual source material, ie: drawings or photos, as inspiration and think about what you might want to achieve.

La finesse de la ligne, la richesse des motifs, le dynamisme des couleurs, la subtilité de la forme; autant de qualités mises en valeur par la gravure. Les artistes gravitent autour de procédés variés en gravure pour exprimer différents éléments artistiques. Ce cours de gravure initie les étudiants aux techniques de gravure en relief (linogravure), taille-douce (pointe sèche) et gravure à plat (lithographie sur plaque de polyester), tout en leur permettant d’explorer leur propre imagerie grâce à la polyvalence qu’offre la gravure. Nous utiliserons principalement des encres à base de soya, qui se nettoient bien avec de l’eau et du savon. Des outils de base ainsi que certains matériaux seront fournis. Apportez vos références en guise d’inspiration, qu’il s’agisse de dessins ou de photographies, et prenez le temps de réfléchir à ce que vous aimeriez accomplir. Bien que cet atelier sera principalement offert en anglais, la professeure peut transmettre ses instructions en français au besoin.
