2020 Workshops and Classes with Joyce Zavorskas

Digital Transfer Encaustics with Joyce Zavorskas
March 7, 2020 Saturday 10-3 pm
Class held at Art Complex Museum in Duxbury, MA

Digital transfer to birch panels is a four-step process but can be done in one action-packed day. The instructor will print out students’ imagery onto transfer film before the class on March 9. All equipment and materials including beeswax, transfer film, and birch panels, are provided but if students have an old electric frying pan, or crockpot, or heat gun, and hog bristle brushes for oil painting, bring them to the class. The finished digital transfer birch panels have a luminous satin surface protecting the digital image and are ready to hang on the wall. The info from this class can be used to continue the process at home on their own. Students must email their digital images to the instructor two weeks before class.

Etching/Aquatint Multiple Plates
April 7 – May 12, 2020
Tuesdays 9:15 – 12:15
Class held at Zavorskas Print Studio in South Orleans, MA

Using copper plates and non-toxic techniques, this workshop will introduce contemporary and traditional approaches to etching using hard ground, drypoint, aquatint and lift ground to produce line, texture and tone. Intaglio lines and marks, etched into the copper plate with ferric chloride (“rusty water”) in a covered vertical tank, retain ink when carefully wiped with tarlatan, and printed on dampened paper with an etching press. Students will create a small learning plate, then a larger plate, which can be transferred to additional plates for multiple color prints. They will learn how to mix and modify color inks, hand wipe the plate, register and print proofs, and begin a small edition. Pamet River etching aquatint 18×24″

Monotype/My Familiar
May 19- June 16, 2020
Tuesdays 9:15 – 12:15
Class held at Zavorskas Print Studio in South Orleans, MA

Students will bring in images of familiar beloved places, people or objects to class each week and create painterly spontaneous images on smooth acrylic plates using small rubber brayers, brushes, or stencils, and oil base etching ink. Dampened 100% rag paper placed on top of the inked plate, and passed through the press with gentle pressure, produces a unique impression that is intimately and permanently bonded with the fibers of the paper. The glistening layers of radiant ink create truly unique images with depth, mystery, memory, and delight. Demonstrations each day will help to develop individual explorations.

Viscosity Monotype/Monoprint
October 15 -17, 2020
Thursday – Saturday 9:15 – 3:15 pm
Class held at Zavorskas Print Studio in South Orleans, MA

Monotypes are paintings on smooth acrylic plates transferred to paper once only using a manual press. Monoprints are paintings on textured plates transferred to paper once only. Textures and linear marks in the plate create repetitive elements that appear with each print. Students generate a spontaneous flow of related ideas in one printing session, to be explored later in paintings or in additional monoprints. Viscosity (means flowability of a liquid) inks are modified with oil or driers to be oily or stiff, so that one color repels another, with amazing results. Students are encouraged to make each print different, not to make an edition of exact replicas. An evocative, personal theme emerges with each print session. Plates may be plexiglass with incised lines, cardboard plates with organic matter sealed with gel medium, previously etched metal plates, or carved woodblocks.

Painting My Familiar/Painting Plein Air
Four selected sites in the National Seashore
June 3-6, 2020 9-12 noon

The natural world is a sanctuary, a place to breath wind and think and feel, undistracted at last. Things in nature transmute, a serene refuge of the spirit one day, drastically altered moments later. To paint on location is to create portraits of these familiar places, where ocean meets land, where hill meets sky. Capture the fragility and wildness of nature with paint on canvas, meeting four days in early June. Choose your own specific subject matter and document an authentic and enduring moment in time. Daily demos and one-on-one instruction throughout the morning. Meet at 8:30 am at selected sites each day of class. Supply list sent with registration. Must be able to carry your own gear.
