Studio Art Portfolio Preparation

This non-credit course is designed for students interested in developing their artistic skills and/or pursuing art in college. Students may attend one or both of the courses indicated.

Mixed Media: Use drawing, painting, and sculpture skills to create a series of works on paper. Materials unique to printmaking -- collograph, monotype, etching and relief -- will be used to make rich, colorful images. Emphasis will be placed on developing visual language and texture, laying and spontaneous application of ink using non-toxic approaches. Students will use copper plats and a corrosive salt (no acid!) for etching, and building collographs with cardboard, thin textured materials and glue. Discussion of contemporary art practice will take place as students sample approaches to describing pertinent issues and concerns with evocative, multilevel print techniques.

Dates: July 6 16, 2015

Days and Times: Monday through Thursday; 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Tuition: $900.
