Printmaking Residency with guest artist James Boychuk-Hunter
March 13 – 23, 2017 in the IDAS Studios
In March, In-Definite Arts partnered with guest artist James Boychuk-Hunter to learn about the art of printmaking using intaglio, block-printing and monotype techniques. For two weeks in the studio artists explored: drypoint engraving (using a needle to incise images directly into a plexiglass plate), linocut (carving into linoleum as a relief surface) and monotype (a painterly process where an image is painted onto a flat surface and then transferred onto a piece of paper) to create one-of-a-kind printed images. These different techniques allowed artists to create multiples of the same image while exploring variations in colour and backgrounds.
Thanks are extended to the Friends of the Alberta Jubilee Auditorium Society for their generous support of IDAS’ 2017 Art Residency program. To learn more about residencies at In-Definite Arts, or to apply to be a guest artist yourself, click here.
