Collaborative Printing & Alternative Process Photography
Working with someone else can lead to innovation and surprise. Experiment with a variety of printmaking methods to make one of a kind works. In this workshop you can explore collaborating while learning the basics of layering monotype, making simple digital transparencies, cyanotype/toning, silkscreen, and stencil. Create small and/or large images, working either alone or with others. This is an ideal class to take with a friend, find a friend in the class, or to do alone. Expand your vision, delve into new combinations, have fun and be surprised. The class is suitable for all levels of printing experience for anyone wanting to explore new ways of working and combining techniques. Each with a solo practice, Yvette Drury Dubinsky and Vicky Tomayko have been collaborating on and off for several years. They have a new body of joint work, scheduled to show at A.I.R. gallery in New York in March.
Ten sheets of white BFK Rives (22x30 inches) will be provided as part of the materials fee. Additional sheets may be purchased from the Work Center at $5 per sheet.
