ONLY TWO SPOTS LEFT!
By popular demand, this is the second time we're offering photopolymer gravure this year!
Photopolymer Gravure is a relatively easy method of creating intaglio prints from both photographic and hand-drawn imagery. Photopolymer prints can rival copper plate photogravures, but are processed in a fraction of the time and materials, and require a fairly minimal learning curve.
In this workshop, you will learn how to make a photogravure using a photopolymer plate and a digital film. You will also learn how to make a film with an imbedded random dot or halftone screen, the matrix for the image. Each artist will have the choice of making 2 one-color images or 1 two-color image.
Saturday, January 9th, 10-4pm
Saturday, January 16th, 10-4pm
Sunday, January 17th, 10-4pm
Prospective students must have a reasonable understanding of Photoshop. Platemaking or printmaking experience is not required. Images do not have to be of photographic origin. Students will be asked to bring Photoshop files of images or drawings and a laptop (if they have one). A thumb drive for transferring images is also recommended.
$415.00: Refunds, minus a $40 cancellation fee, are available up to 5 days prior to the workshop's start date.

“Got Drought?” public art project about the California Drought unveiled on billboards throughout Los Angeles
47% of California’s total water and 55% of water consumed in the US is for animal agriculture.1300 gallons of water are required to make one hamburger versus 42 gallons for one veggie burger. 1000 gallons of water are needed to make 1 gallon of milk versus 49 gallons for soy milk. With facts like these you might be wondering why California residents are being required to reduce water consumption by 25 - 30%, even though residential water use accounts for only 4% of California’s total water footprint.
Check out our new interactive website gotdrought.com for more information and try out our water calculator tool to see "How thirsty is your food?" and view our map of where all 12 of our billboards are located (Downtown Los Angeles, Culver City, Marina Del Rey, Santa Monica, Hollywood and Silver Lake.)
