Impressions of Appalachia: Flora & Fauna through Printmaking ・ Ashton LuddenPrintmaking

In this beginner’s printmaking class, participants will learn about flora and fauna of the surrounding Appalachian landscape and express this knowledge through an exploration of printmaking. Participants will learn monotype, relief block printing, and drypoint, plus a sprinkling of bonus demos. Students can use the diversity of printmaking to approach their subject in a variety of ways, combine processes to yield new results, and better understand if printmaking can be utilized as an educational tool in their teaching practice. This workshop will include morning discussions about current ecological events within the region, daily printmaking demonstrations using completely non-toxic materials, as well as an optional group hike at the end of the workshop! Trail snacks included! Students are encouraged to make time during the week to not only spend time in the studio playing with new print processes but also attend ranger talks, take daily walks/hikes, and visit GSMNP education centers. Open to all skill levels.
