Students choose from four different workshop subjects: 1) a session on relief printing, which produces an image by cutting away surface areas and covers both basic and advanced techniques; 2) a nontoxic etching workshop, which introduces the artistic form used by Rembrandt, Goya, and the Nontoxic Avenger; 3) an introduction to water-based monotype, which combines painting and printmaking techniques, letting students play with layering and removing color; 4) a workshop on nontoxic gravure and solar-plate etching that imparts skills in two methods, the first rendering photographic images and the second a great alternative to lithography for drawers.<p>

New Grounds Print Workshop & Gallery

New Grounds Print Workshop & Gallery nurtures creative minds in a 4,000-square-foot haven where artists can pursue their own projects or learn the basics and nuances of myriad printmaking forms during workshops. Artists enjoy full access to six hand-operated etching presses, a darkroom, studio space, a classroom, and gallery spaces where both local and international masterpieces adorn the walls, inspiring onlookers to get in touch with their inner muses or kidnap someone else’s.

Those moved to channel their creativity can join classes that delve into subjects ranging from etching on copper plates to traditional woodcuts and carving linoleum blocks. All workshops employ nontoxic inks, eschewing the traditional pigments, whose dangerously radioactive ingredients explain, in retrospect, Da Vinci’s third eye and Dürer’s vestigial tail.
