Printmaking Primer
  In this three-day seminar you will be introduced to various kinds of prints and will learn how to use the new, easy to use and clean water-soluble inks (AKUA) in your classrooms. Printmaking is a marvelous introduction to other art forms as it stimulates both creative and analytical problem solving. We will start with trace monotypes, and move on through stencils and viscosity monotype, to exploring various ways to achieve variety and texture by making collographs. I emphasize experimentation and encourage investigation of personal imagery. Please note that even if you don't have access to a press in your classrooms, you will learn techniques that can be used without equipment. Teachers of all subjects and grade levels are welcomed and encouraged to enroll. The seminar will be conducted in Randy's Somerville Mix-It studio in Davis Square. *Due to social distancing, there will be a maximum of 4 teachers in this seminar. To meet anticipated demand, a second section of the seminar will be offered on November 5, December 11 and January 8, 2021. *The Mix-It print shops been made as Covid-19 safe as possible with sanitary precautions and a new distribution of work stations to maintain social distancing.
