Caryl St. Ama with Karen Karlsson Venue: Veterans Memorial Building (Storage Side) Title: R&F Pigment Sticks ® From Start to Print This is a one-day workshop divided into two sessions; the first session, Caryl will cover the technical aspects of R&F Pigment Sticks including a brief history, intro to the product line and basic information for safe handling and studio practices. Demonstrations on preparing appropriate substrates will be followed by highlighting the versatility and variety of approaches one may use when working with Pigment Sticks with time for students to work. In the second session, Karen Karlsson will give a brief review of different printmaking techniques, followed by a hands-on demo using the Pigment Sticks as “ink” in printing from gelatin plates on to paper and encaustic.
