A few pics from Yellow Barn past classes and types of prints we create—In a new class called Printmaking without a Press, we will learn hand print methods that do not require a press, including geliplates and simple screenprints using stencils. So students will be able to learn techniques to do at home after the course is finished. For more info see my list of classes on the Glen Echo page and click on each one for a description, or contact me — Clare’s classes at Glen Echo
A trace monotype is a simple and semi-direct printmaking technique. After inking a plate or surface, a piece of printmaking paper is placed on top of the inked surface. Using a pen or any other stylus-type tool, you draw the image on back of the paper. The pressure of the drawing tool picks up the ink on the paper as the pen bears down. When the paper is peeled off the plate, the lines appear on the paper. This is an easy way for beginners to get started with printmaking and requires no special skills or equipment. If you aren’t comfortable drawing freehand, you can trace a photo. I offer workshops in this technique in Bethesda MD—see my Classes page if you are interested in learning more.
Join me at my new studio for small, relaxed workshops—short in duration, they are easy and do not require a long commitment. Sign up for one or several! I will continuously be adding more as time goes on…Register on the classes page.
Moving to the new Triangle Studios in downtown Bethesda Maryland where I will be offering classes, exhibiting art and selling my work in the gallery space. Here are some initial photos to give you an idea. The spaces are beautiful and centrally located near restaurants, shops and an easy parking garage. Check here for a class schedule!
This fall I will be teaching often in the DC Metro area. Please see my "Classes" page for a complete list of classes in monotypes, screenprinting, Printing without a press, Digital Drawing and Painting, iPad art and more!
