Internationally recognized photographer and educator Keith Carter has been a Workshops instructor for several years, and his perception-expanding approach to personal expression has helped numerous photographers hone their visions. Now, in his first-ever printmaking workshop in Santa Fe, Keith shines a light on the creative possibilities of contemporary digital printmaking.
On our first day together, Keith reviews each participant’s images and presents an overview of successful printmaking strategies, both historical and contemporary. On day two, we engage in the printmaking process using multiple paper substrates and techniques. Throughout, Keith places special emphasis on decision making, sense of aesthetics, scale, atmosphere, mood, purpose, and spirit—elements that individualize the printmaking process and allow you to express your own unique vision.
Through group demos and one-on-one discussions, participants identify where their current work resides, in terms of both craft and aesthetics, as they discover tools that will elevate it to the next level. By delving into printmaking techniques while sharpening your artistic vision, you learn how this expressive medium can serve your larger creative purpose.
Please bring seven to ten in-progress images (preferably newer work) open to interpretation.
Wiseasses, hot dogs, and burnouts are all welcome.
