Course Code: ARTS2036
Discover a unique way to use the natural beauty of real plants to make fabulous watercolour prints. Using the vibrant qualities of translucent colour and unique processes of nontoxic watercolour printmaking on the lush richness of thick printmaking paper, in combination with Chine Colle, explore printing botanicals on assorted coloured and embedded Japanese papers. Abstraction, design and the beauty of nature combine to achieve bold interpretive colours or softly veiled contrasts, and the minute definition of details, to produce prints that will surprise and enchant. You need not have previous experience in either printmaking or watercolours to create many exquisite prints. This process builds confidence, yet is constantly opening up new and exciting vistas to explore. You will also learn how to create these prints at home without a press. This is a wonderful class for nature and garden lovers as well as printmakers and other artists.
A $65 material fee payable to the instructor will be needed on your first day of class
