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
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.
