Instructor: Jody Holbert
In this three-hour class, adult students of all abilities will incorporate texture, surface, color, and design in works of art while exploring a variety of monoprint, gel print, and relief printmaking techniques. They will learn to develop an original image for prints, engage in creative exercises to build an understanding of the medium, and integrate black and white and color into their graphic works. They will build confidence, apply new knowledge, and explore artistic experimentation and discovery while creating a variety of prints. Students will also get an overview of printmaking history and contemporary printmakers. Adults who participated in our printmaking class last year will bring new insights and find new challenges in this year’s printmaking program.
Informal, informative, and inspiring hands-on art classes with changing themes provide a unique focus for adult learners of all ages and abilities to engage in Museum-based art education and creative exploration. Permanent collections balanced with changing exhibitions provide ongoing opportunities for looking at and learning about a variety of artists, art forms, and processes. Opportunities for individualized instruction, observation, practice, experimentation, and the development of a personal style are at the core of all of our adult art classes. Instructional projects vary throughout the year; most students attend for consecutive sessions.
