Class 1: Saturday, October 1st
Class 2: Saturday October 8th
Join us for a two-session class as we explore the traditional art of woodcut relief printmaking.
Early in her career Georgia O’Keeffe studied with the painter and printmaker Arthur Wesley Dow. In addition to his work as an artis and educator, Dow was the assistant curator for Japanese art at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and his work with the museum’s collection of ukiyo-e woodblock prints heavily influenced his work on composition—including a book entitle Composition which had a tremendous impact on a generation of artists from O’Keeffe to Charles Burchfield and beyond.
In this class participants will begin with an exclusive, short tour of the galleries for inspiration, and will then head to the classroom. Participants will explore composition, line, color, contrast, simplification, variation, and layering through this medium while connecting with the physicality, simplicity, and versatility of natural wood through the process of carving, inking, and printing.
Each student will complete a series of at least three prints to take home.
