Workshop Description 

Participants will create unique prints combining the techniques of solarplate, etching on copper and the variable process of monotype. This allows for greater experimentation in printing. The ultimate aim is for each artist to complete a variant edition of monoprints. All methods used are non-toxic including the water based inks. No previous experience is necessary.

Ten sheets of white BFK Rives (22 x30 inches) will be provided as part of the materials fee. Additional sheets may be purchased from the Work Center at $5 per sheet.
 

Biography

Anthony Kirk has had a long career in printmaking as an artist, teacher and exhibition curator, but it is his work as a master printer for a wide spectrum of artists that has been his main focus and for which he is best known. In this role he will again be collaborating with Kiki Smith in the printing of a limited edition intaglio print to be included in the Fine Arts Work Center's 50th Anniversary Portfolio.
