Shakerag Workshop: Color Collograph & Relief Printmaking

I'm very excited about an upcoming workshop I'll be teaching at the Shakerag Workshops on the campus of St. Andrew's - Sewannee School this summer. Below is a short description of the course and a link to the website where you can register. It's going to be a great time of learning and growing and I hope you'll consider taking part!
Impressions: Color Collagraph and Relief Printmaking 
June 16-22,2013

Course Description
A collagraph print is made from a surface on which collage elements and texture have been applied. Using oil-based paints and inks applied with brushes and rollers, we will create colorful, textured, one-of-a-kind prints. This is a very direct, painterly, and fun way to make a print on paper with an embossed surface. Both the making of the blocks and the inking process allow for endless possibilities. This low–tech approach to printmaking will produce stunning qualities and rich color combinations. Using multiple blocks printed over each other with transparent inks on one sheet of paper will yield exciting and surprising results.
