Printmaking Visiting Artist Workshop
Solarplate Printmaking Add-On Day
Sep 18 | MON | 9:30AM - 4:00PM
Drawing, Painting & Printmaking Studio
Optional Add-On Day for Dan Welden's weekend workshop.
Join master printmaker Dan Welden for a weekend exploration of Solarplate, the safer alternative high-quality printmaking process that uses sunlight and water instead of toxic chemicals. While mark making on an 8 x 10 surface, you have the potential of developing a series of related color impressions.
This journey guides you to unchartered areas of your artistic self and takes you through creativity in a unique way. This weekend workshop is designed to encourage spontaneity and fluidity.
