Summer Print Workshop

The Collaborative Print: An Island Press Master Class with Trenton Doyle Hancock
June 4-22, 2012
Application Deadline Extended: May 1, 2012

Collaboration can be a dynamic force in the work of any artist, particularly printmakers. This three-week workshop provides participants a unique opportunity to immerse themselves in the environment of workshop printing at the Sam Fox School’s Island Press as they collaborate with Trenton Doyle Hancock, the Arthur L. and Sheila Prensky Island Press Visiting Artist, and master printer Tom Reed.

During the first week, participants will focus on a print project with Hancock, working with the artist to choose strategies and techniques that play on the concepts and strengths in his work. Under the guidance of Reed, participants will also serve as hands-on assistants throughout the process, helping Hancock to arrive at a finished print.

Following Hancock’s residency, participants will look closely at technical and conceptual aspects of the collaborative printmaking environment, with plenty of time focused on studio research and the development of an exchange portfolio in response to the project.

This 3-credit workshop will take place daily from 9a to 4p, Monday through Friday, with occasional evening lectures. It is open to undergraduate and graduate students, as well as interested print professionals.
