Description

The universe is a wacky place full of actions and interactions with black holes, galaxy-eating collisions, asteroids, meteors and nebulas. Young artists/explorers will design and create their own constellations using the stars, name them, and develop a story or myth that supports their ideas. They then imagine and visualize what a planetary terrain looks like or what a parallel universe is comprised of. Students will envision these alternative worlds (including their colors, sounds, shapes and patterns) as two- and three-dimensional representations using a variety of materials. In the process, they'll build new skills in drawing, painting, collaging, printmaking and mixed media, adding up to an exciting out-of-this-world camp.

Description

Mother Nature invites you to create art using recycled and natural materials. "Going Green" will be the theme with a look at artists who have made their works from found objects. Louise Nevelson built sculptures large and small from objects that surrounded her; Watts Towers in Los Angeles were constructed by Simon Rodia over many years, using found materials; and Deborah Butterfield created horse sculptures from found objects of wood and wire. The artists' works guide students as they create their own art, inspired by and enhanced by the environment. Both found objects and recycled materials are used to create repurposed art. Young artists create a journal to draw and hold their inspirations, with painting, sculpture and printmaking as the major mediums.

Description

Shepard Fairey, the controversial RISD alumnus, manipulates found images to create his dynamic posters, following in the tradition of Andy Warhol's graphic icons. Through printmaking -- a process used to duplicate an image -- both original and found imagery can be layered to create original collages in multiple editions of identical or altered variations. In this course, students learn several non-press printing techniques that can be replicated at home, such as relief prints, silkscreen and pronto plates. Throughout the course, they practice their printmaking craftsmanship to create portfolio-quality two-dimensional works that are surprisingly consistent or uniquely different.

Applies to: AT, Y2

Tuesday, Jul 2 | 6:30-9:30pm
ages 18+ | RISD Campus | 2019/SE-PRINT-4062 ( Class has Started )
1 session | 3 contact hours | tuition $85 | lab fee $10


Description

This workshop introduces students to linocut printing -- an accessible and fast relief-based process in which a block is made by carving away areas; the parts that remain are then inked, and the block is applied to paper. Through rubbing, the image is released onto the paper and a print results. Students are shown how to transfer a simple image to the block using simple inking methods. This is a versatile and portable approach to the printmaking medium and one that lends itself to working without a press.
