Exploring Actual and Implied Texture Through Printmaking Medium of Focus: Printmaking
Description of Workshop: The workshop will begin with an introduction to the Design Elements as building blocks of art and art language. As the focus of the workshop is on the element of texture, we will observe and discuss examples of art works that depict actual and implied texture in printmaking: with a range block and foam printing, collagraphs, and screen printing.
