MONOTYPE PRINTMAKING—FREE!! (Partially funded by the Finger Lakes Community Arts Grant)
This is a one day, hands-on demo/workshop where participants learn the art of the monotype print. Monotype is a one-time-only print pulled from a metal or plexiglass plate. Unlike etching or lithograph, the artist creates an image directly onto the plate using oil based ink. The plate then is run through a printing press transferring the image onto printing paper resulting in a single copy. Once the plate gets passed through the press, the ink gets completely transferred to the paper, leaving a blank plate which makes it impossible to pull anymore prints from that plate. Thus, a MONOprint! This is a fun, non-threatening way to be introduced to the world of printmaking. The artist simply "paints" on their design vs spending hours working on an etching or other type of print.
PORTRAIT SCULPTURE (Partially funded by the Finger Lakes Community Arts Grant)
Olivia Kim will teach a series of 3 Portrait Sculpture classes. This session will be a great introduction to sculpting of the human portrait. By quickly blocking in the overall proportions and anatomical features, students are able to obtain the essential character of a subject. Students will create a clay sketch of the skull and then build on that to capture the image of the model. The next step will be to learn how to create a plaster mold that will be used to cast their sculpture. They will then learn how to unmold their sculpture and clean it up and get it ready for finishing with patina. Each student will complete a sculpture by end of this class.
