Viscosity Monotypes

January 8 – 10, 2021     

Friday – Sunday 9:15 am – 3:15 pm                                                                                                                                                                     

Class held at Zavorskas Print Studio in South Orleans, MA    register:http://www.capecodcreativearts.org

Monotypes are paintings on smooth acrylic plates transferred to paper once only using a manual press. Viscosity (means flowability of a liquid) inks are modified with oil or driers to be oily or stiff, so that one color repels another, with amazing results. Students are encouraged to make each print different, not to make an edition of exact replicas. An evocative, personal theme emerges with each print session. Contemporary experimental approaches with larger rollers produce magical surprises.  The glistening layers of radiant ink create truly unique images with depth, mystery, memory and delight.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             The Glittering Sublime, viscosity monotype 15×15″ on 22×15″ Rives BFK white paper

 

Non-Toxic Etching Multiple Plates 

April 23 – 25, 2021  (please note date change)( see Blog page for additional info on etching workshop)                                                                                                                                                     

Friday – Sunday 9:15 am – 3:15 pm                                                                                                                       

Class held at Zavorskas Print Studio in South Orleans, MA    register:http://www.capecodcreativearts.org

Using copper plates and non-toxic techniques, this workshop will introduce contemporary and traditional approaches to etching using hard ground, drypoint, aquatint and lift ground to produce line, texture and tone. Intaglio lines and marks, etched into the copper plate with the Edinburgh Etch ferric chloride (“rusty water”) in a covered vertical tank, retain ink when carefully wiped with tarlatan, and printed on dampened paper with an etching press. Students will create a small learning plate, then a larger plate, which can be transferred to additional plates for multiple color prints. They will learn how to mix and modify color inks, hand wipe the plate, register and print proofs, and begin a small edition.

Class held at Weny Eduction Center at Cape Cod Museum of Art  in Dennis, MA    register: 

Students will bring images of familiar beloved places, people or objects to class each day and create painterly spontaneous images on smooth acrylic plates using small rubber brayers, or brushes, and oil base etching ink. Dampened 100% rag paper placed on top of the inked plate, and passed through the press with gentle pressure, produces a unique impression that is intimately and permanently bonded with the fibers of the paper. The glistening layers of radiant ink create truly unique images with depth, mystery, memory, and delight. Demonstrations each day will help to develop individual explorations.  Supply list sent with registration.                                                                                                                                                   Eternal Return  monotype 18×27″ on 22×30″ Rives BFK white rag paper

 

 

Painting My Familiar/Painting Plein Air

Four selected sites in the National Seashore

June 7-10, 2021.  9-12 noon    Register: 508-237-3615 or zavorjoyce@gmail.com 

The natural world is a sanctuary, a place to breath wind and think and feel, undistracted at last. Things in nature transmute, a serene refuge of the spirit one day, drastically altered moments later. To paint on location is to create portraits of these familiar places, where ocean meets land, where hill meets sky. Capture the fragility and wildness of nature with paint on canvas, meeting four days in early June. Choose your own specific subject matter and document an authentic and enduring moment in time. Daily demos and one-on-one instruction throughout the morning. Meet at 8:30 am at selected sites each day of class. Supply list sent with registration. Must be able to carry your own gear.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Great Island Hike  oil/linen/birch 8×10″
