Collaborative Printmaking with Stencils
Experiments in Serendipity! Learn to use stencils in making one-of-a-kind prints with common elements. Media covered include monoprinting with oil based inks, cyanotype, relief printing, and ghosting. Explore the myriad ways stencils are useful. Come with a friend or colleague, join the class in making some large collaborative works and have time to make some prints on your own. Each with a solo practice, Yvette Drury Dubinsky and Vicky Tomayko have been collaborating steadily on a series of prints for several years using a unique way of making prints together.
Please bring scissors, exacto knife, cutting mat, plexiglass or other plate cut to the size you wise to work and paint brushes. Ten sheets of white BFK Rives (22×30 inches) will be provided as part of the materials fee. Additional sheets may be purchased from the Work Center at $5 per sheet.
