Mono Printing Workshop

August 12, 19, 26

Monoprint

Join us for a three-day mono printing workshop taught by Kacie Auffret.

Monoprinting, as the name suggests, is creating one unique print (rather than an image that can be reproduced again and again). During this workshop, students will learn three different monoprinting methods which use basic drawing and painting techniques, as well as found materials (e.g. leaves, lace, ribbon).

No previous printmaking experience is required!

Location: 420 Devonshire Road, Windsor, ON
Dates: Tuesday, August 12, 19, and 26
Time: 6-9pm
Price: $75 for three classes (BFK paper can be purchased at Windsor Printmakers Forum for $5/sheet)

Email info@wpfstudio.org to register.

See you there!

 Call for Submissions

2014 Annual High School Student Exhibition: Works on Paper

The Windsor Printmaker’s Forum is inviting students to participate in our 2014 Annual High School Student Exhibition: Works on Paper. The competition is open to all high school students in Windsor/Essex County.

The call is for printmaking, photography, drawing, painting on paper, collage, book works, paper sculptures and all other print media on paper created in the 2013-2014 school year.

Up to three works per student can be submitted. All students will have at least one of their works selected for the exhibition. A jury composed of teachers, curators and professional artists from the community will judge the work and award prizes. There will also be a People’s Choice Award. Winners will be announced at the opening.

The student exhibition is an excellent opportunity to inspire young artists to partake in the full experience of an exhibition opening and to show their work in a professional gallery.

 Submission is free!

We ask that teachers submit art work on their students’ behalf, and students may also submit their own work. Each work of art must be accompanied with the following information: title, name of artist, name of school, medium, year (… and price, only if the student is interested in selling the work). Also include the contact information for all of the work you are dropping off, including name of artist/school/teacher, e-mail address and phone number. Submission forms will be on hand when you drop off the work.

Drop off art work at the Windsor Printmaker’s Forum on the following dates/times:

 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursday, April 24, 2014

11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 26, 2014

 The exhibition opening will be held on Sunday, April 27, 2014 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Windsor Printmaker’s Forum located at 420 Devonshire Road, Windsor, Ontario. The exhibition will run from April 27 to May 31, 2014.

Art teachers, please consider purchasing a Windsor Printmaker’s Forum membership for your school. School Membership entitles high school art students to 3 weeks of exhibition time and also allows up to 5 students to attend workshops, taught by professional artists, at a 10% discounted rate. Also, we hope that you, as an educator, will consider the opportunity to join our organization as an individual member.
