Words and Images

Stuart Kestenbaum & Susan Webster

August 3-7

We will make images that inspire writing, writing that inspires images, and create work that can combine the two. Activities will include daily writing and drawing prompts as ways to generate work. Participants will learn various low-tech printmaking techniques including gelatin-plate process, direct stencil, and monotype drawing and use a variety of tools and techniques—drawing, painting, and collage–to make image and text components. Formats may include simple book structures, one-of-a-kind pieces, and broadsides. The emphasis is on experimentation.  Beginner and Beyond
