Fall One Week Printmaking

Print – Fall One-Week Session
September 19-25, 2021
Michael Ezzell
Copper Plate Creatures

Gods and monsters have been part of storytelling for centuries, and printmakers have always brought that fantastical imagery to life. In this workshop, students will explore introductory intaglio techniques to illustrate mythical creations and manifest their own stories. We’ll work through the stages of developing the copper plate, manipulating drypoint, hard and soft grounds, aquatint, soda bite, and multiple color plates. Finally we’ll print small editions to keep or trade. All levels. 

Studio artist; teaching: AS220 Collaborative Printshop (RI); exhibitions: Gallery 2052 (Chicago), World’s Fair Gallery (RI), Studio Sesh Arts (FL), Gutstein Gallery (GA); solo exhibitions: King Lens and Friends (RI), Sulfur Studios (GA); publications: The Hand Magazine, The Flagler Review, Juztapoz.
