Anderson Ranch Art Center Workshop

Excited to be returning the the ranch to teach a workshop on color intaglio printing!

Color Intaglio: Cheap, Fast & Out-of-Control

DATES: June 23 – 27, 2014

CONCEPT: This course approaches intaglio from a painterly perspective, with a focus on fabricating a variety of full color prints from a single plate. We learn simple intaglio techniques such as line etch, soft ground, white ground and ground lift techniques to create several unique plates. The goal is to break down traditional intaglio into a medium that can be fluid, free and a little out of control. Workshop participants are introduced to a myriad of techniques by Michael Krueger and encouraged to select the processes that best suit their ideas.

MEDIA & TECHNIQUES: Copper and sentra plate color intaglio with non-toxic and less-toxic materials. A variety of techniques including à la poupée, relief roll, stencil printing, funky rollers, stamping, hand-coloring and viscosity printings.

ACTIVITIES: Hands-on demonstrations, open studio time with instructor support, informal group discussions and individual instruction. We engage in problem solving, discovery and experimentation of printmaking techniques through encouraging, open-minded critiques.
