Participants in this class will make artworks based in reality, yet bent according to screwball plans, imagery, and subjective but considered logic. Studio assignments will engage the printmaking studio – specifically silkscreen, which lends itself nicely to the cartoon aspect of the program – as well as more sculptural or performative prompts. Silkscreen in this case will be used as a means to an end, with printing on alternative materials considered. We will use the print studios to develop and produce custom materials or stock imagery, which will be engaged in the service of multifaceted and involved panels and objects. Demonstrations will include fabric silkscreen, open screen monoprint, repeating pattern, and the basics of using printmaking as an integral part of object-making. Previous printmaking experience encouraged, but not required.
