One event on April 5, 2020 at 10:00 AM

$190

This unusual course, led by Abbie Read and Karin Otto, is a two-day workshop suitable for complete beginners as well as those with some experience. Participants will learn about both printmaking and collage separately, and then experiment using them together. The themes of landscape, architecture, and/or natural forms will be our starting points. Printmaking is a very exciting medium, not always predictable, but usually highly rewarding. You’ll learn a range of different techniques, including collagraphic, simple intaglio, and monoprinting. The workshop will guide you through each process and you’ll be given time to explore each one. Both water-based and oil-based printing inks will be used. The collage portion of the course is designed to help you explore how to imply depth and form by using the variety of work created on the first day of the workshop. The collage day will focus on learning the art of simplification, the importance of shape and line, and how to use a scalpel blade, scissors, or tearing to ‘draw’.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTORS:

Abbie Read received a B.A. in Studio Art and Art History from Oberlin College in 1978, followed later by a M.F.A. in Mixed Media from the School of Art at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. MI. Following the pursuit of yet another degree, this time in Landscape Design, she and her husband Bart relocated to mid-coast Maine where her 10-year-old landscape gardening business, ARTgarden, is thriving. Abbie has taught painting, drawing, printmaking, 2-D and 3-D design, and presently teaches workshops on artist books, bookbinding, altered books and art journaling.

Karin Otto has brought her background in arts administration, teaching, and fine arts to Waterfall Arts since 2012. As a long time board member and former board president, Karin has assisted Waterfall Arts with many facets of programming. In particular, she has helped to establish and manage Waterfall Arts’ print studio. Using a variety of printmaking techniques, Karin’s own work explores the idea of patterns in all things. She is fascinated with the depth and dimension that can be derived through layering of texture and color. Karin has studied print making under Susan Groce, UM Orono and worked with a variety of local and visiting print artists through the Waterfall Arts studio. Karin has a BFA in Sculpture and Ceramics and an MA in Organizational Behavior.
