Instructor: Melinda Stockwell
This class will go over the process of dry point printing with plexi-glass and water based inks.
Dry point is one of the friendliest versions of intaglio printing. With a sharp point the artist scratches the hard surface, then fills those scratches with ink and prints the ink onto cotton paper using the strong pressure of a press. The five hour class covers the basic of process, materials, sources, and alternative options. If time allows students can experiment with color inks or watercolor paints.
Join others as they gather in the Villages of Van Buren to learn from the resident artisans in their personal studios. Spend a weekend plein air painting along the Des Moines River, or step back in time as you throw bowls in a Pottery Shop. The inspiring and relaxing atmosphere of scenic Van Buren County, Iowa is, and will continue to be, a haven for creative beings.
