THE PRINT AND ITS POSSIBILITIES
Annual course of engraving and contemporary printing
15 OCT 2018 — 10 JUN 2019
The course proposes an open and creative approach to the drawing as a form of registring a printed image with the aid of the printing press used by artists, artesans and engravers. The student will be directed through diverse printing techniques and the later manipulation of the composition to discover new ways of intervention in drawings.
The student will start from a previous sketch which will be printed with the diverses techniques of direct engraving. Afterwards, we will use the artist press that is a machine that offers the possibility to explore different contemporary methods to stamp, print and engrave. We will work and manipulate the composition with diverse drawing techniques (grattage, frottage, puchoir or collage) to insist in the mediation of «intermediate supports». And we will also use different materials (linoleum, wood, acetate, cardboard, metal) that will require different art skills. To form the final image we won’t use traditional tools (pencil, charcoal, deep pen, pastels) but new tools like wrinkled papers, cartons, ink pads and stamps (previously made by the pupils) and other textured materials. The last 15 minutes of the class will be usually used to groupal correcting and to share and exchange opinions.
