Printmaking

Course Details

Saturday, Apr 13 | 9am-4pm
ages 6-8 | RISD Campus | 2019/CS-CHILD-2049
1 session | 7 contact hours | tuition $140 | lab fee $10


Description

If you can redo, remix and refry, why can't you re-art? Common found objects become the foundation materials for artmaking in this multimedia extravaganza. Combined with traditional artists' materials used in uncommon ways, students reimagine the world around them through 3D construction, printmaking, collage and more. The RISD campus and its unique assets like the Museum and Nature Lab become an inspiration as students record their ideas, discoveries and observations.

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.

This course is held at the Westerly Education Center.

Applies to: AT, Y2

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

The printmaker's art relies on making multiples. Or does it? Not when it comes to monotypes. This course presents the monotype printmaking technique to those who wish to create color-drenched one-of-a-kind imagery. More similar to painting than to prints, it is a hands-on method in which water-soluble inks are applied directly onto a plexiglass surface. It is an additive and subtractive method that rewards mark-makers, who then sandwich the plexi and paper together under a press to release the monoprint. As students experiment, they learn the tools and (modest) technology to create several unique prints for their portfolios.

5 sessions | 35 contact hours | tuition $515 | lab fee $20


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

With our pirate's gear ready and our treasure securely buried, we set sail on our pirate's ship and travel to the Caribbean in search of cultural art and treasures from the many islands and shores of Central and South America. Learn how Caribbean art reflects the lives and traditions of the indigenous Arawak peoples, who inhabited the area for thousands of years, as well as of immigrants from around the globe. You and your fellow "mateys" create Caribbean-inspired artworks through drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking and mixed media.
