    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.

    Beginning and continuing printmaking students, during 5 evening sessions (one per week), will get to know the print studio's tools, equipment, supplies, and practices. 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 $16/hr for 20 hours of instruction.

    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!

    • 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.
