Printing Art Workshop gives you ways to explore and become confident with the versatile printing process and its adaptable and simple materials and techniques. Each printing technique will be a shown how it can be a valuable source of ideas and future fodder for a number of projects. This workshop does not require any expensive equipment such as a printing press.
By understanding the techniques and skills used to manipulate these materials gives you an opportunity to monoprint, stamp, frottage and stencil. By understanding the boundaries of each media can give you handles to hold onto to achieve more options for its use. Develop some printing techniques that could enhance what you might already know or give you a fresh approach to your own style of working with your prints.
Sgrafitto, scrape, roll, collage, and layer are just some of the ways to develop techniques to begin introducing you to ways of working. You will gain a sense of confidence around decision making and each technique will be applied to create a visual example to be documented in your Visual Journal. These will then be taken further to explore the possibilities of printed artworks combining a number of techniques achieved.
Two videos included in the art workshop are designed to expand your repertoire of how to manipulate and utilise materials and surfaces. You will be shown some creative and easy ways to take your techniques and skills further. From starting points you create, you will begin to open up the possibilities for your own artwork.
