Visual Voice Fine Art ~ March Printmaking Workshops!!!

Happy winter – learn and have fun!
We are offering the following printmaking workshops in March.

Although the Visual Voice Fine Art gallery is closed for the season, you can view our extensive art collection by calling 902-VIEWING (843-9464).

Join us for another fun day of printmaking at Visual Voice! Monotype is a very experimental and direct process of image creation through the use of printmaking equipment. You will create one-of-a-kind prints by removing ink from a plate with various rags, Q-tips, brushes and found materials. You may create up to 10 different images during this workshop. This workshop is especially beneficial if you enjoy drawing as we will focus on translating your drawing and painting skills into printmaking.
You can come prepared with an image idea or spend the day experimenting with found materials. You do not need previous knowledge of printmaking to participate in this workshop. Please bring an apron or old t-shirt and any thin/flat found materials like dried leaves, thread, paper cut outs. If you can’t think of anything, not to worry, there will be materials supplied as well.
*Includes the use of a press!

Mar 4 Saturday 10:00 – 3:30 pm only $75 +tax per person

30 min lunch break – bring your own.

Limited space, Pre-registration required 902-843-9464

Create your own colorful limited edition mini print with artist and printmaker Maria Doering. Reductive Relief Printmaking is a technique where you carve and print multiple color layers from a single matrix block. You can come with your own image ideas for a 4×4 inch – 2 color print or find inspiration during the workshop from many provided images. You can take this workshop following the B&W workshop or as a complete beginner. It will be a fun and interesting day at Visual Voice.
Maria Doering is a professional artist and passionate printmaker, teaches part-time at NSCAD University and has taught numerous workshops across the province and country. *Includes the use of a press!

It’s that time of the year when everyone yearns for Spring. Let’s ring it in with a colorful printmaking session at Visual Voice Gallery. Monotype is a very experimental and direct process of image creation through the use of printmaking equipment. You will not be creating an edition of multiples but instead remove ink from a plate with various rags, Q-tips, and brushes and found materials to create a single print. You may create up to 10 different images during this workshop using multiple colours as well as multiple layers. In this workshop, we will focus and experiment with found materials specifically. You can come prepared with an image idea or spend the day experimenting with found materials with this much more direct and painterly printmaking technique.
No experience necessary. Please bring an apron or old t-shirt and any thin/flat found materials like dried leaves, thread, paper cut outs. If you can’t think of anything, not to worry, there will be materials supplied as well. *Includes the use of a press!

Mar 31 Friday 10:00 – 3:30 pm only $75 +tax per person.

30 min lunch break – bring your own.
