Print & Letterpress Spring 1

Print & Letterpress Spring One-Week Session 1
March 22-28, 2020
Stuart Kestenbaum & Susan Webster
Word & Image

We’ll make images that inspire writing, writing that inspires images, and work that combines the two. Activities will include daily writing and drawing prompts. Students will learn various low-tech printmaking techniques, including gelatin-plate process, monotype drawing, and direct stencil-use drawing, as well as painting, collage, and other tools and techniques to make image and text components. Formats may include simple book structures and one-of-a-kind pieces. We’ll emphasize experimentation. All levels. Code S01X
