Collage and Small Prints

Workshop with Catherine Kernan

Collage in Small Prints

Catherine Kernan

July 14-15, 2023

Limited to 8 – SOLD OUT

Two days of pure play to re-cycle/ re-print/ cut and glue using the accumulated material in your studio. Inspired by the many international mini-print competitions, this is a challenge to quickly and spontaneously assemble small scale prints with found materials and printmaking moves to formulate a visual essay.

This could be a warm-up for the next week’s workshop, or a stand-alone workshop.

Catherine Kernan is a painter and printmaker. She is co-founder and partner of Mixit Print Studio and is represented by Soprafina Gallery in Boston and Jason McCoy Gallery in New York. She has taught workshops at Anderson Ranch, Art New England, Peregrine Press, Ballinglen Arts Foundation, Oklahoma Arts Institute, Center for Contemporary Printmaking, and MakingArtSafely. Her course teaching includes the School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Wellesley College, the Rhode Island School of Design, Massachusetts College of Art and Design, and Pine Manor College. Residencies include the Ballinglen Arts Foundation, Ireland; Anderson Ranch; MacDowell Colony; and the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts. Her work is in the collections of, among others, the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, Cleveland Museum of Art, Boston Public Library, Grunewald Collection, New York Public Library, Detroit Institute of Art, and the Harvard Art Museums.


What’s Included

Too much stuff to list! We will have everything Catherine requested.

Of course ink and paper are also included.

MakingArtSafely is a well stocked and tooled studio.

What to Bring

Bring a spirit of investigation and curiosity. A willingness to be surprised is essential.   Bring Old prints, drawings and other interesting materials for tearing, collaging, and reinventing.

I took much of Catherine’s list of what to bring and made that our responsibility to have onhand. Even with that I could not get carving tools (TSA issue) covered in a proper way. If checking luggage is too expensive or cumbersome for you by all means please ship your TSA-less-friendly things to us in advance. Allow 7 business days for assured delivery by Monday of the workshop. Shipping is really a great way to travel light in the age of short plane changes which always seem to be on another concourse from the one you arrive.

That’s it! Any questions about supplies, please feel free to contact us.
