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.

Student work from Peninsula School of Art workshop

Sunday, August 19th, 2012

I just finished teaching a three day workshop on Japanese woodcut at Peninsula School of Art in Door County, WI.

The students made lovely prints, and they all learned and accomplished a lot in three days!

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.
