Students will learn what exactly “printmaking” is and why it may be an artist’s medium of choice. Three basic printmaking techniques will be introduced, including monoprints, linocuts, and collagraphs. Over the course of the week, students will use drawing as a tool to explore sources of inspiration and to practice effectively planning prints. At the end of the course, students will have produced a mini portfolio of prints, which demonstrates their knowledge in each technique.
Teacher: Born and raised in Jackson, MS, Anna Nations graduated from Millsaps College in 2014 and completed her Master of Art degree in studio art in 2015. Nations spent a year teaching as an adjunct professor before returning to Mississippi College to continue her Master of Fine Arts degree. While an M.F.A. student, she continued to teach as a graduate assistant in the areas of painting and design.
Painting was Nation’s first love in art, but gradually, her art has become more and more interdisciplinary. Nowadays, she works primarily in assemblages which incorporate paintings, drawings, and printmaking techniques. Nation’s work is highly content-driven, and she encourages her students to incorporate a similar level of creative thought, meaning, and self-expression in their works.
