Events: http://msudenver.edu/cva/eventsSaturday May 27, 1-3pm: Overview of Printmaking with Mark Lunning
- Join Mark Lunning – co-organizer of the 528.0 exhibition and founder / owner of Open Press – for a workshop all about the world of printmaking. Using example prints, plates and printmaking tools, Mark will explain how to recognize the difference between the four processes of printmaking (intaglio, lithography, silkscreen and relief), and how monotypes are their own medium.
- Chris Blume – an exhibiting artist – and Sam Cikauskas, both of Boulder’s FlatIron Press, will demonstrate pronto plate lithography and offer visitors the opportunity to try their hands at this printmaking technique.
- Emily Moyer – co-organizer of the 528.0 exhibition and an instructor at Art Students League of Denver – will show you this no-press process that produces a monotype. In this workshop open to all ages, learn how to make your own gelatin plate and take a completed monotype home with you.
- Pull a print with exhibiting artist Mark Friday as he demonstrates how screen prints are made. Mark will share his personal tools and materials, setting up one of his screens with a squeegee, ink and paper, and then guide you through the printmaking process.
- Learn first-hand how to create monotypes on black printing paper with exhibiting artist Tony Ortega. He will show you how the multi-step monotype process yields a final print that can look different than the original image on the plexiglass plate.
