We are thrilled to announce two new additions to our teaching artists roster - Kjell Peterson and Janelle Jurgens! Both artists will be dedicated to our Co-Op Studios spaces for five hours each week in order to give Co-Op Members 1-on-1 instruction and guidance. They are an amazing resource for anyone looking to learn a new medium or brush up on a dusty practice.
Kjell will hold Ceramics hours Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30PM - 8PM.
Janelle holds Darkroom hours Wednesdays 5PM - 7PM and Thursdays 5PM - 8PM.
Both Lab Techs will also hold one workshop a month on last Thursdays covering a variety of techniques.
Learn the art of color woodcut from image planning to the carving and printing. Printmaking artist Joshua Norton will lead you through the process and answer your questions along the way.
Spread out over 3 Saturdays in Feb (2/14, 2/21/ 2/28 from 2 - 4PM), the extended color woodcut workshop will provide basic & advanced techniques including: registration, color reduction, multiple blocks, color blending, spot inking & stenciling.
Due to materials costs Co-Op Members pay $10; $20 for the public. Please RSVP to Program Manager Paige Reitz if you're interested in attending - firstname.lastname@example.org
