Instructor:  Patrick Casey

Date/time: Fridays July 7, 14, 21, & 28, 6-9pm (4 sessions)


Description:  Yearning to create unique editions of multicolor woodblock images without the burden of oil-based inks and the constraints of a printing press?  Well cheer up fellow printmaker, because I am in your corner.  Members of this select program will develop an understanding of basic woodblock carving and printmaking through technical demonstrations and hands-on experience.  Your only responsibilities will be to observe, speculate wildly, and challenge yourself as you create fantastic prints no one has seen before.  

Prerequisite/skill level:

Age group: 15+

Instructor bio: Patrick Casey recently received his MFA from the University of Iowa's Printmaking program. Working primarily in the disciplines of printmaking and science fiction, his work explores who we are and what we may become. Essential is a willing suspension of disbelief combined with the freedom to speculate on and invent ethics or experiences that are just emerging and those that have yet to occur, as well as a desire to be cool.
