Printmaking

Course Details

Monday - Friday, Jul 8 - 12 | 9am-4pm
ages 6-8 | RISD Campus | 2019/SE-CAMP-0542 ( Class is Full )
5 sessions | 35 contact hours | tuition $515 | lab fee $20


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.

ages 6-8 | Tillinghast Place | 2019/SE-CAMP-2030
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.

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

Wednesdays, Jun 19 - Jul 24 | 6:30-9:30pm
ages 18+ | RISD Campus | 2019/SE-TEXT-1408
6 sessions | 18 contact hours | tuition $365 | lab fee $60


Description

An elegant and accessible way to create repeating patterns on paper and fabric, block printing is unparalleled. Make your own signature textiles by hand using relief printing -- creating image transfers from carved blocks. This course introduces the entire process, from translating images and ideas into hand drawings, to transferring drawings to blocks, to carving to printing. Inherent in developing designs, approaches to creating dynamic four-way repeat patterns are introduced, which are then translated into carved printing matrices. You learn best practices for registering and printing your own signature textiles by hand. The finished work lends itself to a variety of beautiful fine art, design and craft applications.

Saturday + Sunday, Jun 22 - 23 | 10am-4pm
ages 18+ | RISD Campus | 2019/SE-PRINT-1406
2 sessions | 12 contact hours | tuition $275 | lab fee $45


Description

Step outside the bounds of traditional printmaking and into the realm of the experimental in this introduction to collagraphy. The class explores the process of building a collaged print matrix, in which materials such as hardened liquids, paper/cardboard, textiles, organic/edible matter and found objects are adhered (usually glued) to a substrate (board or paper), resulting in a textured collage that has relief and depth. Freedom to explore both representational and abstract imagery is encouraged. Ink or pigment is then applied to the piece and put through a press, resulting in surprising form and unlikely texture. Students hone technical printing skills as they produce prints in multiples and potentially an edition, and have the freedom to explore both representational and abstract imagery. Testing the waters of experimental printmaking and reflection on how process and material can become focal points of a finished concept and image are goals of the class.

Tuesday, Jul 2 | 6:30-9:30pm
ages 18+ | RISD Campus | 2019/SE-PRINT-4062
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.
