Our subject will concern the visual patterns and forms in the natural world. The immense variety that nature creates emerges from the working and reworking of a few formal themes. Those limitations on nature bring harmony and beauty to the natural world. Flow, spirals, branching, cracking, crystals, packing, and meandering will be the focus of our study. We will record and interpret these patterns of growth using simple printmaking techniques. Transfer drawing, collagraph plates and relief plates will be approached in a monotype method. We will print with Akua Intaglio Inks and take full advantage of their ease of use and ability to layer colors, textures and lines with clarity.
