We will examine the symbolism of traditional Spanish Catholic Milagros, then make our own linocut milagros to give and share using the communal process of printmaking. Each intimate studio session has a six seat limit, ensuring that each participant receives all the coaching and guidance they need.
Get the most out of your block by printing colors at different carving stages. From using flats to plan colorful linocuts, to creating a “limited-edition” set of prints for a select group of friends or family.
If you want to plan each stage of a colorful print, register correctly every time and calculate the most cost-efficient way of linocut printmaking, this workshop is for you!
Be inspired by Gamble’s flora and learn the fundamentals of monotype block printmaking. We will begin with a tour through the gardens for inspiration. Instructor Charles Woodruff Coates will show attendees how to draw simple botanical shapes from observation. You will learn how to transform these drawings into stamps that you will use (and keep!) for monotype-printmaking.
The key to a great linocut print starts with design. This workshop focus is on how shapes can describe light and shadow. If you want to learn how to simplify your images, use shapes to imply light and shadow, or never worry about working in reverse when planning a linocut, this workshop is for you!
Step into the “virtual” shoes of Tony Foster and paint the wilderness found inside The Foster, with artist Charles Woodruff Coates. In this beginning digital painting workshop, we’ll examine Tony Foster’s process and techniques in his Exploring Beauty journey, then re-create his methodologies on the iPad. Participants will learn how to apply elements of art such as line, shape, texture and color to digital painting. Each participant will receive a digital portfolio of prints and resource packet from the workshop.
