Words And Images
October 18, 2020 – October 24, 2020
Stuart Kestenbaum and Susan Webster
During this workshop students will create images that inspire writing, writing that inspires images, and generate work that can combine the two. Daily activities will include writing and drawing as prompts to generate your work. Various low-tech printmaking techniques such as gelatin-plate process, direct stencil and monotype drawing will be covered. Participants will use a variety of tools and techniques, such as drawing, painting and collage to make their image and text components. You will discover different formats including simple book structures, one-of-a-kind pieces, and broadsides and you are encouraged to experiment. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $600
