    Printmaking: Fob Open Studio will be a regular Monday feature*.  This is un-monitored, dedicated time when BARN members with printmaking studio fob access can be sure there is no other class in session, and can make plans to print together in the studio. (Technically, Open Studio in the print studio is whenever there is not a class in session. Check both the Print and Book Arts calendars; if there is no class for either of these studios, you are welcome to come in and work.)  But Mondays are a reliable time to work on your own projects that do not require further instruction, no need to check the calendar.  Up to 10 print studio members can work at one time.  If there is high demand, we will begin having formal online registration for this time period.  Until then, you can just show up.

    Details:

    • Prerequisite: BARN Member and Print Studio fob access (authorized by the Studio Lead after completing the prerequisites for unmonitored time in the studio).
    • There is no fee for this time.  It is part of your BARN membership.  
    • Open studio users are expected to know where studio tools, supplies, and equipment is kept, to respect the standards and policies posted for studio use, to be considerate of others, and to leave the studio neat and clean when finished.     
    • A variety of print paper is available for purchase in the print studio.
    • Feel free to bring a meal or snacks. Food is allowed in the common area adjacent to the studio classroom, and there is a kitchen in which to store and reheat. 

      *There will be no Open Studio on Monday, October 1 due to the BARN wide clean up event.

    Beginners and continuing printmakers in this daytime course of 3 sessions (one per week: no class the week of Nov.21) will learn and practice the basic skills needed for using the press and sharing the studio with other printmakers. You will also learn and practice the techniques used in the intaglio printmaking method of drypoint, which is the etching of marks directly onto a plate without a resist, inking and wiping the plate, and using the press to make multiple prints. 


    This class is for:

    • Anyone needing a foundational introduction or refresher about the print studio tools, equipment, supplies, and practices
    • Those interested in learning and practicing the drypoint intaglio method of printmaking within the structure of the intro class
    • This class qualifies as a prerequisite for intermediate and advanced classes and workshops offered by the print studio
    • This class alone does not qualify you for working independently in the studio, but this class plus either Introduction to Printmaking: Relief Printing or Introduction to Printmaking: Monotype prepares you to complete the Skills Competency checklist for fob access to print studio


    Details:

    • No prerequisite needed. This is a introductory level class.
    • A materials fee of $20 will be added to the price of class when you register, which covers a plexiglass plate, ink, and 5 sheets of 12"x18" student grade printing paper.  Additional plexiglass and paper is available for purchase in the print studio.
    • Feel free to bring a meal or snacks. Food is allowed in the common area adjacent to the studio classroom, and there is a kitchen in which to store and reheat. 
    • This class will be cancelled If minimum registration has not been reached 5 days prior to the first day of class.
    • NOTE: There is no class on Nov. 21.


    This introductory class is taught by a team of experienced BARN studio printmakers.

    Printmaking Demo will be a regular First Saturday of the Month feature.  A different demo will be offered each month by local instructors.  This month it will be solely a demonstration, and will not have a practice session.  Carolyn Terry is an accomplished book artist and will show how printmaking enriches her book art. She will have examples of monoprints, pressure printing, shellac plates, and acrylic plates, and will also show examples of how she tears prints into book pages, and assembles torn pages into signatures.  And she will share her own insight into often the most mysterious of questions for artists: how to generate content.

    Come to one or all the December Relief Print Mondays, but each is a single-day class, so please register for each one separately.

    Details:

    • Prerequisite: none.
    • The materials fee of $15, included in the price of the class, covers one lino block, ink, and student grade printing paper.
    • Professional grade paper is available for purchase at $5/sheet.

    Instructor:

    During the last ten years, Jan Branham retired to Bainbridge Island after a 35-year career as a public high school art teacher in California. She has since become a full-time printmaker, which she finds very satisfying and artistically nourishing. Jan primarily works using collage and other printmaking techniques such as etching, linocut, woodblock, and collagraph, as well as the mixing of media to satisfy her image curiosity.

    Jan currently works with several groups of printmakers as well as being an active member of BARN’s Print Studio and the Seattle Print Arts. She has been included in a number of local and national shows, from Port Townsend to Brooklyn. See more of Jan’s work at the Island Gallery here on Bainbridge Island.

    Come to one or all the December Wednesdays with Stencils classes, but each is a single-day class, so please register for each one separately.

    • Some printmaking experience helpful but not required, i.e., ink mixing and cleanup, used the press before.
    • The materials fee of $15, included in the price of the class, covers materials for stencils, ink, and student grade printing paper.

    Instructor:

    Martha Makosky has been a printmaker for 15 years.  She finds the most fun in learning new techniques and combining them in different ways, collecting and layering materials in response to the emerging image.  The ink flows, the time goes, and who knows how the print was made.  See more of Martha's work at www.marthamakosky.com.

    There has been another class added in this time slot. " Layering with Collographs and Stencils with Martha Makosky". Please click here to register for that class.


    Meg Hartwell, one of our island artists, is back with her collage techniques. Using archival glues and a variety of papers, fun and exciting images will be created by using color, texture, composition and movement.  Compile pieces by using old prints (bring yours if you have some), old stamps, a selection of beautiful hand-made papers, thin tissue papers, marbled paper, hand-written notes, old maps and diagrams.

    Participants will be working fairly quickly collaging imagery together to create their own unique compositions, using the press to flatten their final images.

    The purpose of this workshop is to really loosen up, have fun, take risks and enjoy making new work in a different way!

    Details:

    • Prerequisite:  None.  All levels of artists welcome.  
    • Feel free to bring a sack lunch or snacks; you can store and reheat food in the building kitchenette.
    • A Materials Fee of $25 will be added to the class cost when you register which includes two large sheets of print paper.
    • Additional paper is available for purchase in the print studio.

    About the Instructor

    Meg Hartwell has her MFA in Painting and Drawing from Otis Parson’s School of Design & Art and works in painting, woodworking and printmaking. She has lived throughout the United States, mostly in Phoenix, and currently resides on Bainbridge Island. Her travels in Mexico are reflected in her work.

    Meg creates a visual language inspired by vibrant colors, pop art and abstract expressionism by tearing, cutting and assembling printed paper pieces into a final composition. Meg also uses printmaking which allows her to embrace happy accidents as well as a variety of mark making.

    Meg has shown her work in Seattle and galleries across the country and is currently represented by Island Gallery here on Bainbridge Island.  She is a member of the Women Painters of Washington.

    Participants can bring their own collograph plates or pieces in progress to layer over, or create backgrounds and plates in class.

    Details:

    • Some experience helpful but not required.  
    • Feel free to bring lunch or snacks; you can store and reheat food in the building kitchenette.

    Come to one or all of the three January Monday Monotype with Linocut classes, but please register for each one. (There will be no class on Jan. 14).

    Linoleum block prints can be finished work in and of themselves. They can also be used as shaped plates and printed on thin papers, allowing them to be incorporated as elements in more layered work.  And they can be printed over monotypes, adding color and depth. In this class we will make lino blocks, or you can bring blocks you have already made, and we will make monotypes on plexiglass to layer with them.



    Details:

    • Some printmaking experience preferred, i.e., ink mixing and cleanup, used the press before.  Or by permission of the instructor.
    • The materials fee of $15, included in the price of the class, covers one linoleum block, use of the studio carving tools, ink, and student grade printing paper.
    • Professional grade paper is available for purchase in the print studio for $5/sheet.
    • Feel free to bring a meal or snacks. Food is allowed in the common area adjacent to the studio classroom, and there is a kitchen in which to store and reheat. 
    Instructor:

    Martha Makosky has been a printmaker for 15 years and an artist all her life.  She learned printmaking upon moving to Bainbridge in 2002, and has studied with master printmakers locally and internationally.  She finds the most fun in learning new techniques and combining them in different ways, collecting and layering materials in response to the emerging image.  The ink flows, the time goes, and who knows how the print was made.  See more of Martha's work at www.marthamakosky.com.

    About the Instructor

    Virginia Davison is a printmaker and stone carver. She has been actively pursuing her artistic abilities since an early age. Her artistic interests began in college carving plaster, and later she added soap stone, alabaster and marble to her carving repertoire. 

    After a number of years carving stone, attending workshops, and active with the Stone Carvers Association in Washington, Virginia moved to Bainbridge. Living on the island, her interests gradually shifted over time to include color because of her passion for gardening. With this shift, she began taking classes at Pratt Fine Arts Center in Seattle. 

    At Pratt, Virginia fell more and more in love with paper. This new passion led her into printmaking where she explored a wide range of printmaking techniques. Virginia's current goal is to share her wealth of knowledge and experience in art and printmaking with others through the BARN Print Studio.

    Building confidence in drawing skills can lead to more adventurous and satisfying printmaking. During 6 consecutive Monday evening classes, you will enhance your natural drawing abilities by exploring techniques that will help you to express your own vision as an artist.  Instructor Marc Cooper has broken down the facets of drawing into a series of exercises using a variety of materials. Key skills to be covered include: contour drawing, negative and positive space, values, perspective, pattern, color, composition, and, of course, developing your own style.  As Picasso once said, Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up. 

    Marc will also link drawing skills with their natural extension into a printmaking practice and will visit the printmaking studio during the course of the class.  Open to anyone looking for a foundational introduction to drawing or drawing practice exercises.

    Details:

    • Prerequisite: none. 
    • The materials fee of $35, included in the price of the class, will cover sketch pad, conté crayons, chalk pastels, technical ink pen, and newsprint.

    Marc Cooper is an award-winning Art Director and artist. From childhood he has loved making art, and he has enjoyed a long career as an artist and commercial Art Director, with a focus on drawing, printmaking and publishing (both traditional and digital). He enjoys teaching and sharing his love of art, but, most importantly, he enjoys learning from those he teaches.

    Beginning and continuing printmaking students will learn the print studio's tools, equipment, supplies, and practices during 5 evening sessions (one per week). Students will learn how to use inks and low-toxicity clean-up methods while practicing the three primary forms of printmaking: monotype, intaglio, and relief. There will be integrated work time in preparation for our studio skills competency evaluation.  The evaluation checklist will be reviewed on the last day of class, and completion can qualify BARN members for fob access to the studio.  This is a comprehensive course at a great price: it works out to be about $16/hr for 20 hours of instruction.

    This course is for:

    • Those seeking the skills needed for working independently in our print studio: during monitored open studio for non-members, and with free fob access for members.
    • Beginners or continuing students desiring a refresher on skills training, and those wanting to learn and practice monotype, intaglio, and relief printing methods
    • Those wishing take intermediate and advanced classes that will build on what is learned in this course

    The ability to express your creative vision comes with knowledge, practice, and mastery of beginning skills. We see it as a mutual investment by you and our print instructors with the hope that you will become a long-term part of our community, able to continue with courses or work confidently on your own time here at BARN or elsewhere.

    Phoebe Toland is an accomplished artist in print and sculpture.  For this workshop, she will guide students through a process of relief printing and subsequent print alteration through collage and reconstruction.  Adding and subtracting layers allows the building of complex yet related images.  Continuing students can learn some new techniques to apply to their studio practices, and new students will have fun with the process.

    Details:

    • Prerequisite: none.
    • The materials fee of $20, included in the price of the class, will cover a soft-cut block, specific papers, and all necessary printing supplies.
    • Feel free to bring a sack lunch and snacks; you can store and reheat food in the kitchenette.

    About the Instructor

    Phoebe Toland is an accomplished printmaker, painter, and sculptor.  She taught for many years, as an artist-in-schools for the state of Montana, at the Holter Museum of Art in Helena, and at Carroll College and the U of M College of Technology.  Her work has been shown across the United States.  As a child, she wanted to be an architect and a continuing interest in house design has been an underlying aesthetic factor in her work.  She is always exploring the interface between humans and our reliance on structures, contrasted with organic, outdoor environments.  Her artwork attempts to reconcile a balance between the natural world and the man made; increasingly fraught and precarious.  To see more of Phoebe's work, visit www.phoebetoland.com.
