This summer, in conjunction with the exhibition Thinking Outside the Frame, several artists will lead a series of printmaking demonstrations in the Spotlight Gallery. Artwork created during the demos will be displayed in the gallery throughout the duration of the exhibition to further illustrate and share the creative process with museum visitors. Artists featured in the summer printmaking series are members of the California Society of Printmakers.
Clayprinting is a new and innovative approach to monotype printmaking. The technique trades traditional plates and ink for potter’s clay and pure pigments. The process is water based, non-toxic, and only hand tools are required. Martha Castillo will guide viewers thru the steps from blank surface to finished print.
