Printmaking Workshop: Making and Manipulating Multiples
with instructor Sarah Blackmon
In this middle school workshop, participants will combine household items and fine art materials to make prints. Students will use manipulatable objects and materials to build their own printmaking plates. The resulting prints can stand alone or be combined with other materials and techniques, like collage, drawing, and ink transfer, to transform these printed multiples into one-of-a-kind artworks. This workshop is ideal for students who are curious to learn about how artists and designers use processes like these in their work.
Sarah Blackmon is a graphic designer and arts educator. She holds a Bachelor of Graphic Design degree as well as a Bachelor of Art + Design degree, both from NC State University College of Design. Sarah started exploring printmaking while enrolled in a 6-week course at Penland School of Crafts titled Innovative Book and Print Structures. She currently works as a user experience designer.
This workshop is open to middle school students, grades 6-8.
