Matisse's fanciful Jazz. The elaborate detail of Durer's Knight, Death, and the Devil. The fabulous prints of Whistler, Rembrandt, and Picasso. This class will offer students two ways to learn about the art of printmaking and the amazing print oeuvre of artists whose works are held at the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art.
Nancy Green, the museum's Gale and Ira Druckier Curator, will lead our morning sessions as we study the museum's rich holdings of etchings, engravings, woodcuts, screen prints, and lithographs. In the afternoons, we'll meet with Nancy at the Ink Shop in Ithaca, where we'll enjoy hands-on workshops in each of the techniques. While our prints may not become masterpieces of the twenty-first century, with the help of local artists we'll create works that please us and, in the process, have fun learning firsthand just how master artists create their work.
Materials fee: $150.
