DRAWING & PRINTMAKING: MASTER CLASS WITH BRIAN KREYDATUS
Saturday, January 14
10:00 AM–4:00 PM
Instructor: Brian Kreydatus
Learn from artist Brian Kreydatus how to enhance your life drawing and printmaking skills to create unique monoprints! We’ll start with a brief overview of the history of monotype and then proceed to make our first prints by arranging a still-life composition and exploring the basics of the materials and printing processes to be used.
Later, we’ll be joined by a live model who will move through a variety of poses lending themselves to dynamic compositions and narrative possibilities. We will produce a series of prints working directly from the model with various approaches to mark making, printing, and serial imagery. You’ll walk away with 3–5 prints that incorporate your new skills.
