Printmaking Class Update

It's that time of year again - the end of fall semester. I thought the screenprinting group was particularly remarkable this term...quick to pick up on new skills, industrious and self-reliant, able to sort out problems, mindful of using time well and meeting deadlines. Here are some views:

Last work day of the semester

Oscar Rangel and his excellent poster

Paula Isenberg, a painter, created a screenprint based on a series of her paintings.

The last assignment involved layering with transparent ink. Janet Pineda very successfully 
pushed the see-through and watercolor qualities of her inks to their fullest strengths. 

Jack Roberts, an independent study student, focused this semester on 
portraying world disasters. Here is his print about 9/11/2001.

Jennifer Warren has a couple more layers to complete on this piece, but it is already wonderful. 
You can detect her excellent drawing skills. She teaches art at a socal high school and 
I think her students are lucky to have her.

Now, on to the Intaglio classroom. This is the area where Breanne Patterson sat for at least six hours on the last work day. I took this shot at 9:28 p.m., two minutes before the end of class when I turn into a pumpkin. Breanne swore she'd finish cleanup by 9:30. I was dubious... what do you think?

Here is Breanne. She wasn't done with cleanup quite at 9:30, but she was finished really soon after.

I'll post some more prints from this semester soon....
