June 25th & 26th, GLEN SKIEN "Material Thinking: The Poetics of Process" FULL PRICE
$390 / $350 members
Material Thinking: The Poetics of Process is presented by artist/printmaker Glen Skien as a print-based workshop that blends printmaking, collage and assemblage works. The outcomes are guided by a combination of intuitive and experimental approaches to printmaking methods. Designed around the artist’s personal studio practice participants will be instructed in a variety of print techniques including drypoint etching, monotypes, photographic transfer, and collage-based responses. Using ephemera materials and the photographic image in combination with printbased methods, participants will be made aware that all materials are embedded with a range of associations that help form cultural, historical, or personal narratives.
