Photogravure Workshop With Karen Hymer

This one day workshop of photopolymer gravure making was packed full of eager to learn students. This trial-and-error process allowed students to created magnificent and unique prints that captured the eye.

This alternative printmaking process translates photographic detail into ink on paper, allowing for more creative freedom, and resulting in unparalleled beauty.

Beyond the Tube: Mixing Color with Andy Burgess

We stepped outside of our comfort zone for Beyond the Tube: Mixing Color with Andy Burgess, and boy, are we glad we did! In this dynamic class, Andy led our participants through several exercises in mixing and applying color to form abstract shapes, exploring the complicated relationships between colors. Andy pushed his class to focus on subtlety and simplicity, and they took great care to control their work while openly experimenting. The results were beautiful, playful paintings!

Gum Bichromate over Platinum Printing

Our Gum Bichromate over Platinum class with Diana H. Bloomfield was a hit! This two-day class led our participants through not one, but two beautiful hand-coated processes that combined together created stunning, unique prints. During day one our students made platinum/palladium prints of their images, which were beautiful on their own; in day two, they added a layer of gum bichromate over the top and made an additional exposure, which took their prints to another level. The end result is a cross-processed print with the sharpness and tonality of a platinum print, but with a color wash and additional details from the gum bichromate!

Wet Plate Collodion with David Emitt Adams

We brought another alternative process classic back to Art Intersection – Wet Plate Collodion! Our tintype workshop led by David Emitt Adams this March was our best one yet. This group perfected the art of pouring collodion onto metal plates, sensitizing with silver nitrate, making proper exposures, and finishing their plates as beautiful photographic objects. Great work, everyone!
