Make Colorful Monoprints at Anderson Ranch!


Create unique, one-of-a-kind monoprints by combining traditional and cutting-edge approaches in this one-week workshop at Anderson Ranch in Colorado. Workshop participants will use the Anderson Ranch Fabrication Lab and the Patton Print Shop to examine how laser-cut stencils, blocks and overlays can expand the possibilities of a painterly, playful and multilayered approach to making hand-pulled prints.

New Approaches to Monoprinting is taught by Lari Gibbons, an artist who explores new and traditional approaches to printmaking through collaborative, interdisciplinary projects. She is Professor at the University of North Texas and also directs P.R.I.N.T, a nonprofit fine art press. She received an M.F.A. from the University of Nebraska, Lincoln.

For more information, see https://www.andersonranch.org .

UNT Printmaking students can now get course credit for approved workshops through ASTU 4302 / 5302: Printmaking Remote Research, which formalizes the off-campus experience into a series of projects that focus on demonstrating new technical skills, presenting awareness of contemporary practices, documentation of professional development, and participating in professional networking opportunities.

UNT Printmaking Welcomes KAZUKO GOTO!
 
Kazuko was born and raised in Kyoto, Japan.  She moved to Rock Springs, Wyoming to study art at the small community college.  It was during her study at the University of Dallas pursuing Master of Fine Arts degree in printmaking, she found her media, Mokuhanga (Japanese woodcut).  She loves the intimacy the process brings which helps her to transfer her idea into an image.  Gardening, cats, and printmaking are part of Kazuko’s obsessions…  She enjoys the peaceful time (with some panic moments) her obsession brings.  
Kazuko is teaching Relief ASTU 3340,  Monday and Wednesdays 2 - 4:50.
