Join book artist and master printmaker Karen Kunc and make your own artist's book in this intensive, hands-on workshop.
Starting with printing color reduction woodcut images, which become the pages of a hand-bound or accordion book, students will create their own artist's book that generates a multilevel sensory experience. Students will find inspiration from master printmaker Karen Kunc, who opens the creative process with insightful mentoring. Concepts for invention and good fun will be directed in a collaborative atmosphere.
This class is open to motivated beginners.
Karen Kunc explores inventive color abstractions of the natural and human-fashioned world in her prints and artist's books, creating ideas of ‘strange beauty.’ Kunc is Professor Emerita of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The recipient of numerous awards, her work has been shown in exhibitions nationally and internationally and are held in numerous private, public, and university collections. She has taught workshops around the world and has lectured to over 200 institutions. Kunc is the owner of Constellation Studios, a creative worksite for artist residencies, collaborations, and workshops in print, paper, and book.
This workshop is offered in partnership with the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art and BARN.
