3-28-2014 Class Summary

| 28 March, 2014 20:39

We welcomed two new people to our class today "Char" and "Marilyn" I hope that I receive their emails so I can update them.
 
I gave a short presentation on Gelli Plates and a Gelli Plate Demo.
 
We will have a critique next class period April 4, 2014. Please bring one piece for the critique.
 
We will follow the following format for the Critique:


CRITIQUE 1-24-2014

1) Description of the work by the artist. Focus on the subject 

matter
. What things are in the art? Think of things like clothing, 

environment, etc. Describe the process used.

 2) Analysis. Focus on the organization of the work- how the 

PRINCIPLES OF ART (balance, proportion, contrast rhythm, unity, 

emphasis, etc.) have been
 used to arrange the elements of art. 

How are the ELEMENTS OF ART (line, shape, form, texture, space, 

color and value) used?

 

3) Interpretation - focus on the mood, feelings and ideas that 

are
communicated in the work. What is the artist trying to say to 

you? What is going on in the picture or artwork?

 

4) Judgment/Evaluation - focus on the decision-making about 

the work's artistic merit. Do you feel the work was successful and 

why. What do I think about this artwork? Do I like it? Why or why 

not?

After the critique we will continue on the Gelli Plates or the various projects that people are working on. We will not be printing linocuts on the new press because they are too complicated to set up without rails.
 
The four projects for the Gelli Plates will be:
1. ALLOVER MONOTYPE DESIGN –ADDITIVE
2. STENCIL MONOTYPE
3. REDUCTIVE MONOTYPE
4. VISCOSITY MONOTYPE
5. OPTIONAL INTAGLIO MONOPRINT
If someone wants to do the intaglio project feel free to do it you will need an intaglio plate to work with either a drypoint or other intaglio plate.

3-7-2013 Class Summary

| 08 March, 2014 08:46

Yesterday I showed a brief History of Printmaking and attached it to this email.
 
The press is still waiting for a bed and I have been in touch with the company on a daily basis at this point they are not responding or giving me a ship date.
 
We will wrap up Linocuts in next Friday's class then there is no class the 21st and we will critique work that is finished on the 28th. That would include any work that is being done by continuing printmakers in their selected mediums.
 
Ronna ordered the Rives BFK paper and everyone paid for their respective sheets from a 100 pack at $2.59 a piece (except me). I will pay her this week.
 
Being that their is no press we made a decision to do Gelli Plate Monotypes which can be purchased at Venus Art Supply and we can continue using the Akua Inks. Evidently acrylic paint can also be used by interested students. We figured that the cost of a box of Knox Gelatin and the fact that it has a short shelf life the Gelli Plates would be better. The Gelli Plates will last indefinitely.
 
We could start the Gelli Plates after the critique on the 28th... I will need to give an overview.
I am doing my best with the press company and hope to finalize it ASAP.
 
To get a jump on the Gelli plates there is a link you can follow http://www.gelliarts.com. I have not really looked into it but it may get you started. I will have my own lecture as usual.

2-28-2014 Summary of Today's Class

| 28 February, 2014 20:29

Hello Printmakers,

Please don't forget to frame your prints for the Arts and Crafts Show the
paperwork is due on March 12th. We would love to have good representation 
of our work. 
 
I did a very short lecture on the 5 Linocut projects for the new students and
I have attached the pdf. Continuing students will work on Linocuts and Drypoints.
•1. Black Linocut
•2. Color Linocut
•3. Repeated Linocut
•4. Rainbow Roll Linocut or separate color roll as in Noah’s Arc example
•5 Inventive Linocut your choice
 
Ronna gave a nice presentation on Solar Plates to the class and we think we would like to start the Fall classes with the Solar Plates. You can use transparencies of your art to expose the plates to UV light and then etch the plates in water - no chemicals.
 
Next week we will continue on with the projects students are currently working on.
 
Update on new press - the press bed will ship on March 6th so we should have a press by March 14th so plan ahead for printing those Drypoints.

1-14-2014 Class Summary

| 14 February, 2014 19:39

We made some decisions today regarding the rest of our season in Printmaking.
We ruled out moving on to Silkscreen Prints and cannot be sure about the D2P 
Plate Lithography since the plates are on back order due to the death of the 
inventor Mark Zaffron.
 
The Plan is to continue with Drypoints and Linocuts and refine our skills. I will 
continue to introduce new ideas for these pursuits.
 
Please take note of the deadline to have your paperwork into the Art Club for the 
Art and Crafts show March 12, 2014 by 4pmand the Art work is due to the Art Studio
March 20, 2014 8:30-10:00am. Lets show many prints to the community and sell some
too.
 
I showed 2 videos on Screen Prints today and I will include them here:
 
Screen Printing Part 1
 
Screen Printing Part 2
 
We reviewed these videos just to get students familiar with what we could proceed with
and have shelved this for next season.

1-31-2014 Summary of Today's Class

| 31 January, 2014 20:23

Today I presented the D2P Plates and a brief history of traditional Lithography. This was followed by a demo using alternative plates since the ZAcryl D2P Plates are unavailable on back order.  I emailed the lecture to you.

 

Since the D2P Plates are on back order we made a decision to do linocuts for those of you who would like to do wood block prints that would work as well. Something new!

 

There are wood block supplies at many of the usual places and also McClains Printmaking supplies carries them.

http://www.imcclains.com/catalog/blocks/cherry.html

 

I will post the supply list for Linocuts on the next post.

Summary for last class 1-24-2012

| 25 January, 2014 17:10

We spent some time reviewing the Principles and Elements of Art to prepare for our critique. 

I have a video that you can watch to show some ways to use the ZAcryl plates, don’t change anything that you are obtaining for supplies because I will make adjustments in my demo in class on 1-31-2013. Here is the video I will also show you a video in class.

January 24, 2014 Class Plans

| 19 January, 2014 20:26

Hello Printmakers,

This Friday I will be going over Elements and Principles of Art 

then we will be having a critique of Drypoint or any project 

that you have finishedAfter the critique I will introduce 

the next project in Lithography.

 

The outline for the critique is the following:

Drypoint Projects mainly will be critiqued there were 4 prints 

that we worked on:

-Drypoint inked in one color

-Rainbow Roll

-Varied wiping

-Chine colle

-A la Poupee

 

CRITIQUE

WE WILL USE THESE 4 STEPS IN ORDER FOR THE CRITIQUE

Here is a short guideline to use to structure the critique:


One good basic way to critique is to use a method created 
by 

Mittler (2006) which he referred to as the Art Criticism
 Operations.


He basically outlines the following process to critique an artwork:

 

1) Description of the work by the artist. Focus on the subject 

matter
What things are in the art? Think of things like clothing, 

environment, etc. Describe the process used.

 

2) Analysis. Focus on the organization of the work- how the 

principles of art (balance, proportion, contrast rhythm, unity, 

emphasis, etc.) have been
used to arrange the elements of art. 

How are the elements of art (line, shape, form, texture, space, 

color and value) are used? How are the principles of unity pattern, 

rhythm, variety, balance, emphasis and proportion used? 

 

3) Interpretation - focus on the mood, feelings and ideas that 

are
communicated in the work. What is the artist trying to say to 

you? What is going on in the picture or artwork? 

 

4) Judgment/Evaluation - focus on the decision-making about 

the work's artistic merit. Do you feel the work was successful and 

why. What do I think about this artwork? Do I like it? Why or why 

not?

January 19, 2014 Update Lithography Supplies #3

| 19 January, 2014 20:21

Hello Printmakers,

I have been asked which pencils/markers that are needed for use with the D2P plates. Here is a list of what I think is good. Choose what you can afford. You do not need all of this stuff.
Liquid Tusche  - excellent for fluid watery passages or solid areas of black it is very expensive so you may want to share a bottle.
Permanent markers -excellent
Thick or thin Thin sharpies - excellent
Crayola Crayons or any generic crayon work very well
China markers work very well
Litho Pencils soft and medium - well
Litho Crayons soft and medium - well
Ball point pens - well
That's my summary!
