Course description:

This workshop by visiting artist Ron Pokrosso focuses on mixed media printmaking. Using Akua non-toxic water-based inks, participants of all levels will learn monotype through various methods of mixing, modifying, layering inks, using and abusing mark-making tools, and exploring the limits of paper. Instruction will include a wide range of uses for chine colle, collage, and drawing. ImagOn and Solarplate will be taught, both as means in themselves and as integrated with other techniques. An overview of Photoshop will be taught to help artists learn the basics of photo digital imaging and how to apply it to Imagon, Solarplate, and collage. Multi-plate printing methods will open the door to just about any combination of traditional printmaking forms.
The emphasis is on the “Artist as an Inventor,” and each participant is encouraged to stretch his or her methods of expressing and breaking barriers into new and uncharted territory. The information presented is cumulative, and participants will have the opportunity to revisit works developing over the course of two weeks. The program will culminate with an informal critique and discussion to serve as closure and celebration on the final day of class.
