Painted Collagraphs

This is a fun two-day workshop where students will learn how to create mixed-media paintings from a printed collagraph enhanced with colored mediums. Using cardboard and heavy paper, students will design and make their own image plates. With oil-based inks, they will roll and print from them onto rag paper and then develop their images with gouache staining, acrylic paints and colored pencils. Through the process students can explore how to use different hand-printing and painting techniques to affect the value and texture of their pieces. At the end of the workshop, students will take home their new mixed-media paintings.

Students will learn:
How to make and print a collagraph
Printing techniques
How to add color to and build a mixed-media piece
