LEVEL II INTRO TO RELIEF PRINTMAKING @Waterfall Arts

May 18 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

LEVEL II INTRODUCTION TO RELIEF PRINTMAKING
@Waterfall Arts
May 18, 19 @ 10:00 am – 3:00 pm
$100.00 – $150.00

It is time to bring color into the mix of your prints! If you are comfortable with creating a single-color relief print, then come and learn how to use the multi-block and reduction printmaking techniques. There are exciting differences between the two that leads to very different mark making. We will also discuss inking strategies that can add depth and complexity to your image. Please note this is a 2-day class Saturday May 18 and Sunday May 19.

All materials and tools needed will be supplied. Bring any source imagery that you would like to work on. This class is for adults, ages 15 and up, that have a basic understanding of relief printmaking or related medium.

Multi-block relief printmaking uses a separate block for each color. The carved areas fit together like puzzle pieces and are printed in succession onto the paper. Reduction relief printmaking uses only one block, slowly carving it away as each layer is printed on top of the one before. The final layer is usually the black outline, and it will have every other color printed underneath it.

About the instructor: Paul Valentine graduated from the University of Tennessee with a degree in architecture. He has worked as a museum exhibit designer and as an architectural designer before switching to focus full time on creating art. He has exhibited artwork and painted murals in Qatar, Italy, Russia, New Zealand, Nicaragua, and the United States and participated in a 9-month Artist Residency at the FireStation Museum in Qatar. He has dedicated a significant portion of his life to exploring the natural world, having trekked over 10,000 kilometers of long-distance trails including walking across the US twice on the Appalachian Trail and Pacific Crest Trail, and the Te Araroa Trail in New Zealand. The impact that sleeping under the stars for almost 2 years during these adventures has had on his work cannot be overstated. Seeing the first-hand effects that we are having on the world propels him to use his art to help inspire people to take better care of the beautiful and magical places we have all around us.
