Register for this printmaking workshop at The Foster with artist Charles Coates. We’ll examine the symbolism of the Zuni fetish souvenirs in Tony Foster’s Sacred Places Journey, then we’ll make our own fetishes to share using the communal process of printmaking. You’ll learn idea generation, image design, carving, and printing techniques. Through trading prints, each participant will take home their own fine-art portfolio of artwork.
Through this workshop, Charles will host an art-making activity using Gamble Garden’s flora as inspiration for making prints. Participants begin with a tour through the gardens as Charles instructs how to draw from observations. Participants will then learn how to transform their drawings into stamps for monotype-printmaking. Together, we’ll create a series of unique images that share repetitious shapes, along with their own unique qualities.
