Textiles A Summer Session 7

Textiles Summer Session 7
August 14–19
Stephanie Santana
Printmaking on Textiles

In this workshop we’ll transform fabric with relief printing, monoprinting, and screenprinting. We’ll lay the groundwork for this exploration with demonstrations and a survey of historical and contemporary textile and surface design applications. With a focus on self-directed experimentation and play, students will develop their own motifs and textures by carving rubber blocks, manipulating paint on gelatin plates, and applying artwork onto screens. Students can expect to leave with a portfolio of textile studies for reference or as components for other projects. All levels; beginners encouraged. Upper textiles studio.

Studio artist; founding member of Black Women of Print; recent exhibition: A Contemporary Black Matriarchal Lineage in Printmaking at Highpoint Center of Printmaking (Minneapolis); collections: Metropolitan Museum (NYC), Getty Research Institute (Los Angeles), Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Smith College Museum of Art (MA).
