Roxanne is psyched to teach upstate at WSW!

Last summer Roxanne got all fired up about the WSW ArtFarm plants; specifically the weedy discards that the cheery, hard working intern would generate on a daily basis. Roxy festooned the WSW printshop with green lines and grassy clusters.

_______________________________________________

This workshop celebrates the diversity and beauty of nature’s detritus through the exploration of drawing and mixed media processes.

Each class will begin with a guided drawing activity to inspire personal projects. Participants will draw every day and work from observation and intuition, revealing realism and abstraction in nature’s forms. Themes and concepts of storytelling, natural remedies, and plant symbols will manifest and simmer as the works progress. Participants will generate artworks inspired by the overgrowth, i.e., “weeds,” flowers, sticks, stems, and roots from WSW’s ArtFarm plantings and nearby plant life.

Roxy will introduce various image-making processes and strategies to compose images through drawing, copy machine manipulation, and printing incised plexiglass plates. We’ll explore contour drawing and mark-making techniques, like sgraffito drawing with inks, crayons, pen, charcoal, oil stick, and pencil, as well as various techniques for wiping inks and printing our intaglio plates. We’ll also experiment with dipping our prints in encaustic wax medium and incising and inking the top layer.

Roxanne will work one-on-one with each artist and host a final critique at the end of the week. Artists will come away from this class with a confidence to push their work forward. All experience levels welcome.

Roxanne Faber Savage SUMMER 2017 Workshops/Instruction learn 3 printmaking processes- plexi intaglio, carborundum aquatint&  styrofoam shape plates
Truro Center for The Arts@ CastleHill
Mixed Plate Monotypes
learn 3 printmaking processes- plexi intaglio, carborundum aquatint& styrofoam shape plates
August 14-18 - 9 am-12 noon/creative mornings-beach in the afternoon!

In this workshop, artists will learn three low-tech plate making techniques: drypoint intaglio, carborundum aquatint and styro-shape plate making. Drypoint is a drawing method characterized by soft, velvety, fine & furry lines; carborundum is a painterly, tonal approach, and styrofoam offers crisp stencil shapes. Roxanne will demonstrate platemaking, plate inking and wiping; both intaglio and relief; building layered images with multiple plates, and registration. Emphasis is on play and exploration to develop wondrous monoprints from mixed printing plates. Roxanne will cover best practice print shop skills including working with wet and dry papers, ink mixing, working at the press and print flattening. A “mini-crit” will be held on the last day of the session. Prepare to spend busy mornings in the new print shop making plates, wiping and printing! All levels of experience welcome. Non-toxic Akua inks will be used for printing.
