Prints (from Photopolymer Plates), and a Place to Put Them

Instructor: Amaryllis Siniossoglou (see biographical information below)
Enrollment limited to twelve
special location: one weekend in Amherst at UMass

Would you like to explore printmaking using the latest
development--photopolymer plates? And then, gather the fruits of your labor
into an attractive portfolio? If so, this two-weekend class is designed for

The first weekend you will work at the Garage Annex School, constructing a
cloth-covered portfolio. Naturally, the portfolio you produce the first
weekend is sized to fit the prints you'll make the second weekend (11 x 7.5
paper size). Amaryllis will prepare you for the second weekend's printmaking
session by explaining processes and your options for printmaking. That way,
you'll have a chance to think about your imagery during the intervening week.

The second weekend you will have the opportunity to work in the printshop at
the University of Massachusetts, where all equipment and materials will be
provided (plates, etching press, ink, paper). You may opt to do drawings on
mylar. And/or, you may choose to work with photographs altered and
manipulated with Adobe Photoshop, and printed on transparent film. In either
case, your art will be transferred as mirror images to delicate
photosensitive polymer plates by exposing it to UV light. The art is
photoetched onto the plate, you ink the plate, and run it through the press.
Images will be printed with permanent inks on archival papers.

No previous printmaking or computer experience required.
