Printmaking: The Collagraph with Valerie Jane Geard
Date & Time: September 28-30th, 9am-4pm
Skill Level: All Levels
Material Fee: $30 payable to the instructor
Collagraph printmaking involves the construction of a plate by gluing or collaging together a variety of found materials, which can then be coloured and printed multiple times. With additive and subtractive techniques students will learn how to create hard and soft edged images with depth and contrast. Included in the material fee, students will get to play with gel mediums, gesso, glues, plate building surfaces, printmaking papers, and embellishment materials. If students have these materials at home they are asked to please bring them; a notebook, pen, pencil, watercolours, xacto knife, self healing mat, and textural collage materials.
