Course Description:

This weekend course will focus on exploring the possibilities of the medium outside of emulsion-based screenprinting. The emphasis will be on experimentation using wax paper stencils, drawing fluid, and watercolor paints. Without focusing on printing an edition and working at a fast pace, we will combine these techniques to create a number of unique images. This will bring the fluidity of monoprinting and afford students the luxury of playing with the medium in a looser, freer way. People that might enjoy this class include: art teachers who want to bring the medium into their classrooms, artists who don't have access to an exposure unit or space in which to work, those who want to avoid chemicals associated with emulsion, and experienced screenprinters looking to experiment with a more spontaneous, non-digital way of making images. The class is designed with beginners in mind, but is also geared towards the practiced printmaker.

About the Instructor: Sarah Evenson takes immense pleasure in building community through teaching and practicing craft. Her personable and interactive teaching style reflects this ideal. She has served as an assistant teacher for Continuing Education at MCAD since 2013 instructing children, teenagers, and adults in papermaking, bookbinding, screenprinting, intaglio, and letterpress. In 2016, she worked as a papermaking studio assistant at the Penland School of Crafts. Having earned a BFA in printmaking at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, Sarah is primarily a screenprinter. She concentrates on color, shape, the interplay between positive and negative space, and handwork in order to create variable editions that introduce play and personality into this traditional printmaking process.
