SAVE THE DATE: Janet Fagan’s Advanced Blockprinting Class

Janet Fagan’s Advanced Blockprinting Class

When: July 20-21

Fee: $150 per student
Where: VMG Studios, Twisp WA

Register: Confluence Gallery (509) 997-ARTS (2787)

Janet Fagan will teach students general wood carving techniques, how to work with and layer different materials when working in mixed media, and how to plan efficiently for a mixed media piece using many different materials.

Students will learn step-by-step to draw, carve and print a relief print on pine board and incorporate prints into mixed media paintings as a collage element.

Janet Fagan is always searching for new ways to combine her two loves – painting and printmaking, because it is within the contrast of these two approaches to image making that she finds the truest expression of her heart’s response to life.

Janet’s love affair with printmaking began 30 years ago at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia, where she studied woodblock printing with Dan Miller. Janet has taught drawing, painting and printmaking classes for the past 25 years including classes at the Gage Academy, Seattle Art Museum, and the Frye Museum in Seattle. Inspired by the natural world, Janet is currently exploring a series of prints based on the wild creatures she shares her outdoor time with. Combining the graphic quality of relief printing with the spontaneity of mono-printing and painterly mixed media techniques is emblematic of Janet’s experimental and intuitive approach to painting and printing. Her work is available in Seattle at the Art Study in University Village and in the Methow at Confluence Gallery.
