Printmaking and Portraiture
Wednesday, December 13, 2017
5:00pm – 8:00pm
Creative complexity, cutting-edge design, and bold color characterize Japanese graphic art known as sōsaku hanga, or "creative prints." A selection of these modern and contemporary artworks are on view in A Century of Japanese Prints
, which encompasses portraits, landscapes, street scenes, and abstract forms. Inspired by innovative techniques and forms, participants will practice reduction block printing in this studio workshop to create dimensional polychrome prints using a single linoleum block. Techniques of progressive block cutting, layering, color registration, and embossing will be combined to create a one-of-a-kind color impression. Students will explore portraiture using representational imagery, including figurative likenesses as well as objects that convey personality.
