with Tracey Miller

14 August 2021

10am - 4pm          -

Cost:   $140

Contact Tracey to book:    https://www.traceymillerart.com/  

 Alcohol inks create vibrant transparent color unlike any other medium and form lovely patterns within your painting. 

Alcohol Ink is a highly pigmented and quick-drying medium applied by pouring, brushing or stamping on a non-porous surface such as Yupo. The vibrant colours of this ink intermingle creating unique textural effects, often leading to unexpected results. 

Our class will begin with a demonstration on techniques of pouring, brushing and creating textures with inks and other materials. The remaining time will be spent discovering the unique possibilities of working with alcohol inks on Yupo, with ample time to complete a few paintings. Each participant will leave with several experimental pieces. 

Tracey has many years of experience guiding beginner and intermediate artists in creating pieces they proudly cherish. This workshop is perfect for those who just don’t have the time to commit to a full class term OR want to try something new

 Included: Tuition, inks and paper, morning tea & coffee and parking. 

Please bring: Your own apron, coffee cup, lunch and enthusiasm! 

Social distancing will be observed.

18 & 19 September 2021 

9am - 4pm

Cost:   $210 BDAS Members     $240 non-members  

Solar plate etching is a non toxic form of etching.

A photosensitive photopolymer plate is used to expose a design in the sun.  It is washed in water to reveal the image hardened by the UV rays. The plate is dried and printed on the etching press. The original design needs to be applied onto clear transparency film.

 

 This can be done with existing photographs or drawings at Officeworks.  They also provide transparencies and copy for 80 cents. If this is not possible, then photocopies with a variety of illustrations will be provided on the day. These can be cut for a collage to create your image. 

 

Many pressed leaves and textures from nature will be introduced as elements to include in your compositions. Emphasis on colour printing using the viscosity colour method as well as A la Poupee and chine colee will be applied creating a stunning print portfolio. 

 

There will be 2 solar plate available 15x10 cm  (A6 size). and 1 test plate. Many variations in the printing process will be demonstrated. Each participant will create up to 10-12  colourful prints on Stonehenge paper. 

 

Material cost $40 all inclusive.  To be paid to tutor on the day

All materials provided by Seraphina
