Color Woodcut with Nancy Palmeri
Saturday, May 21 at 9:30 am - Sunday, May 22 at 5:00pm

Workshop Description:
This course will introduce students to single block color reduction woodcuts, with a focus on content and technique. Students will learn expressive carving techniques (with traditional and nontraditional tools), printing and inking applications. Special consideration will be given to the successful use of color applications (transparency, opacity, value and intensity) and simplified (working with one block) chiaroscuro printing techniques. The idea here is for students to recontextualize the history of this early printmaking technique in order to reflect their contemporary images.

Nancy Palmeri's prints are in various collections worldwide including the Fogg Art Museum at Harvard, Museo de Artes Contemporaneas Plaza of Bolivia, University of Colorado's Boulder Special Collection, The Royal Museum of Fine Art of Antwerp, and The Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery of Lincoln Nebraska. Palmeri is currently Printmaking, Associate Professor & Area Coordinator at the University of Texas at Arlington. She received her M.F.A. from The University of Nebraska.
Workshop limited to 10 participants. $100 for current UNT students, $125 for UNT Alumni & UNT Faculty/Staff, $125 for Sr. Citizens, $150 for Artists.
