I have taught one or two color woodblock classes each year since 1997. They say to teach is to learn, and certainly teaching has taught me a great deal. Each new class increases my enjoyment of the interchange, challenge, and variety inherent to the process of making hanga color woodblock prints.
Prints from the most recent class at the Arts Sudents League of Denver in Feb, 2011 (see bigger sizes of the images on the Blog):
Below find a few pics from a class at the Concord Art Association in Concord, MA, April 11 - 13, 2008:
Prints from the workshops
Prints are approx. 4 1/2" x 6". Included are links on the names of students who maintain web-sites of their own work (look for underlines). Each student finishes and editions their print on the last day to be able to receive a portfolio of all the prints from the class. When you consider many of these prints were made by folks who may never have carved, made prints, or sometimes even taken an art class before, it is quite exciting to think of what this imagery represents!
