Printmaking with Artist Pei-Hsuan Wu for Grades 6-12
Age Group:Tweens & Teens
Explore an eco-friendly printmaking technique with visiting artist Pei-Hsuan Wu. This workshop will use tetra pak-a material used in food packaging- for our printing plate. The artist will introduce printmaking techniques such as intaglio and collograph before we dive in to making our own prints. We will use a printing press to create prints of our final plates. This workshop is for teens in grades 6-12.
This workshop is in partnership with the Center for Contemporary Printmaking and coincides with the upcoming exhibit in our gallery: Printing Past and Present: An Exhibition of Work from the Center for Contemporary Printmaking, Fall 2023 – Winter 2024
About the Artist
I am Pei-Hsuan Wu, an artist from Taiwan and founder of Texture Printmaking Studio founder. Printmaking is my main medium while I pick up the expertise in intaglio and lithography. My artworks tell the story of the contradiction of mental and physical states, the repetition and complexity of printmaking, and how the printing process has affected me.
