CHECKING OUT PRINT STUDIO EDITIONS

Checking Out Print Studio Editions

Works are posted on the dotted panels that span the Print Studio walls and column.

Interested in making something at Print Studio but don’t know where to start? Try creating a work incorporating this month’s Collective Task, adapted from artist Lisa Sanditz’s original task: Make something while honoring the spirit of Freecycle. That is, all materials used in the project must be used, borrowed and bartered. Explore the illustrious tomes of the Reanimation Library for sources of recycled images and text, and copy, color, paste, and rearrange the visuals using Photoshop Elements on our computer print stations. Leave your mark by adding your print to the dozens of inventive works already posted on Print Studio’s walls. Print Studio is your free resource for exploring the print medium, and is open every day, except Tuesday, from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Some Print Studio Editions, including digital finger drawings, Collective Task responses, and more!

To mark the beginning of week five at Print Studio, we’d like to showcase a small sampling of some of the editions that participants have made here in previous weeks. We’ve had a wide range of visitors to Print Studio, from those experimenting with print technologies for the first time, to those well-versed in various electronic and manual printmaking apparatuses. There have been visitors who pop in quickly during a break from work, and others who’ve spent hours manipulating images from the Reanimation Library. All in all, the Print Studio walls are decked out with a lively display of visitors’ creativity.

One participant of Jorge Colombo's digital finger drawing class created this imaginary view of the Museum's website featuring her own work.

This Thursday, February 23, we offer a second round of digital finger drawing workshops with Jorge Colombo, at 12:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. During the workshops, participants will work with the Brushes application to create drawings on their iPhones or iPads. If you have your own iPhone or iPad please download the Brushes app and bring your device along to the workshop. Print Studio will provide a limited number of iPads for use during the workshop.

Additionally, this Saturday, February 25, at 12:00 p.m. and 2:30 p.m., Katerina Lanfranco will be teaching an altered books workshop, where participants can reimagine the book format by slicing and dicing up old books for new creative uses. Art-making tools and found materials will be on hand for adding colorful new touches to repurposed old books.

Whether you’re interested in taking part in a workshop or working on an individual project, we encourage you to find inspiration at Print Studio. In addition to everything mentioned above, we also offer scanners, copiers, scissors, stamps, and a variety of found materials and tools for you to work with.

Print Studio is free to the public and open every day, except Tuesdays, from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Comments

I am very interested in attending some of the workshops but have encountered conflicts and confusion about dates and registration, both in print and online. Last Saturday,I was told at the museum that I should have registered online and that the class was full for both times. I have not been able to register onlne for any day at all including the one today. I have tried so hard and I am realy frustrated. I especially have been interested in the Altered Books workshop. When I went last Saturday I was told that I should have registered online I have not been able to find, then or now, any information about this. I would like to attend the one that is scheduled for this comming Saturday at 2:00. Please help.

Gwyneth,

Sorry to hear you’ve encountered difficulty. There is no online registration for these workshops, so it appears you were misinformed. As you can see from the ticketing instructions below, you should arrive well in advance of the workshop’s starting time, as capacity is very limited.

Admission is free, but tickets are required. First-come, first-served tickets are available at the information desk in the Education and Research Building, beginning at 11:00 a.m., before the first program each day. Participation is limited to 25 people.

wow! her work is faantstic! I think my favorite is “A Letter from the Past.” I like when words and art are mixed in one piece (hence, my haiku w/ jewelry). And I’ve been very involved, inventorying letters in our archives recently – they tell so much about the person and their place in history.
