Reduction woodcut mask by MCAD student Margarita Wenzel

Sunday, March 3rd, 2013

I meant to blog this picture several months ago, but I’m catching up now that I’m slowly emerging from several months being too busy teaching.

In the fall I was teaching two classes at Bethel University, Introduction to Creative Arts and Two-Dimensional Design, and I was teaching Print Paper Book Techniques at MCAD.

One of my MCAD students, Margarita Wenzel, made this mask for a reduction woodcut assignment.

Accordion books from Print, Paper, Book Techniques at MCAD

Friday, February 24th, 2012

I’m excited about my students’ work on display at MCAD.

These accordion books show the results of the first two screenprinting assignments in Print, Paper, Book Techniques. For the first assignment, students printed a pattern and then used it to cover bookboards for the front and back covers of a book. For the second assignment, students developed imagery related to their covers that showed a process, narrative, or other imagery taking advantage of the way a book unfolds over time.

In the Loop at MCAD

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2010

Participants print from my woodblocks. I'm the one wearing the striped shirt and gesturing.

Last week I did a one-night demonstration in Japanese woodblock printing at MCAD. Whenever I bring my blocks for others to print, it helps me to see my old images in a new way. Some people combined things I had never thought to combine before, making me think I should give my own old blocks a second look and see if I can create new imagery by recombining them.

MCAD’s flickr site has a set of photos from In the Loop events. The events are designed to give a behind-the-scenes experience of MCAD. Mine was the second event in this series.
