Introduction to Silkscreen
Wednesday, October 16 & 23
10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Instructor: Liz Shepherd
Cost: $255 for each two-day session
Class Full, Registration Closed

If you compare a digital print and a screen print of the same imagery next to each other, you will see a vast difference! Screen printing offers layering techniques that graphic artists know from Photoshop but the silkscreen results are infinitely more interesting in their imperfections, more tactile and more attractive. This workshop will focus on making layered, multi colored screen prints. Juxtaposing multiple screens, images can be created that are dramatic and unexpected. We will be paying particular attention to mixing transparent colors and layering them. Workshop attendees will be provided with guidelines for image creation.

This class is limited to 4 attendees. Free parking is provided.

Shepherd & Maudsleigh Studio is thrilled to host visiting artist Sue Oehme – don’t miss this rare opportunity to study with this internationally exhibiting artist and Master Printer!

In this workshop we will explore printing watercolors from various substrates such as frosted vellum or coated mat board. Sue will demonstrate the proper way to get the most out of each application of paint, as well as discuss various papers to use. We will use vellum to cut stencils and compose them on the backing sheets to print multiple layered images. Watercolors offer myriad ways to apply the paint including drawing with the tube, washes, and beautiful evaporated puddles.

Susan Hover Oehme received her BFA in printmaking and painting from the University of Michigan School of Art in Ann Arbor. She owns and is the Master Printer of Oehme Graphics in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.  Before launching OG in 2010, she was the Director/ Master Printer at Riverhouse Editions from 1996 to 2009.  Prior to her move to Colorado, she lived and worked in New York City and printed at Tyler Graphics with such artists as Frank Stella, Helen Frankenthaler, and Joan Mitchell, and also free-lanced in many smaller print studios based in the city.

Japanese Woodblock Printing
Thursday, November 14 & Friday, November 15, 2019
10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Instructor: Lisa Houck
Cost: $355 plus $35 materials fee

Japanese woodblock is a technique rich in tradition dating back to the 17th century. Ukiyo-e means “pictures of a floating world” because these prints depicted daily life. We will carve wood blocks and ink them with watercolors and nori paste to create painterly prints and to experiment with Japanese papers. This non-toxic print medium is colorful and subtle, allowing for transparent washes of color as well as detailed textures and wood grain.

Please bring sketchbooks, photos and other inspiration to the first class.
Appropriate for all levels.

This class is limited to 8 attendees. Free parking is provided.
