Instructor: Joanne Beaule Ruggles

Monday Jan 29 – Friday Feb 2, 2018

Work with master figure artist Joanne Beaule Ruggles and costumed models as you discover how to capture and maximize story possibilities within your figure artworks. Our group will spend time identifying universal narrative topics, and discussing how metaphors can aid in your storytelling. After preliminary sketch-studying each pose from different points of view, you will plan your daily composition. The use of cameras to document both model and other pictorial information you may wish to utilize will be discussed. Finally, we will begin drawings or paintings of your selected theme. On our last day we will continue development of your most successful narratives with helpful critique. Your artworks may not reach completion during the workshop. Our emphasis will be on getting you launched in the ability to tell stories, expanding your knowledge of beneficial tools, and successful work processes as you return to your own studio.

Participants should have prior experience working from the human figure as a subject.

INTAGLIO PRINTMAKING with Kyle Simon

1:00 PM13:00

INTAGLIO PRINTMAKING with Kyle Simon

Intaglio (in-TAL-ee-oh) is the family of printing and printmaking techniques in which the image is incised into a surface and the incised line or sunken area holds the ink. It is the direct opposite of a relief print. Among intaglio techniques are engravingetchingdry pointaquatint, and mezzotint.

Workshops will be led by Joshua Tree artist, Kyle Simon.  Participants will be shown examples of different intaglio techniques, with the first class focusing primarily on the technique known as dry point — the most direct process.

Each participant will be given a prepared plate and a tool used for scraping his or her image into the plate. They will then be given directions on inking up the plate/pushing the ink into their scratched lines and then printing their image onto paper through an etching press. Subsequent workshops will explore some of the other techniques used in Intaglio printmaking. 

$40. Workshop fee.  Includes Plates/ink/ and tools, and prepared paper.

CONTACT Kyle to Register: kylesimon@gmail.com 

Kyle Simon has been a master printer for the last 20 years. Most notably working at Pace Prints for the last 12 years in New York where he collaborated with hundreds of contemporary artists, such as James Turrell, Chuck Close, Kiki Smith, Shepherd Fairey and Mathew Barney.

Simon moved to Joshua Tree in 2015 to pursue his own artistic interests where he has since been focused on creating a series of telescopes that alter ones perception of the instrument and allow viewers to experience the cosmos in wholly new and unfounded ways.
