Continuing Education . Pre-College Exploring Identity through Print + Enamel
Why do we like the things we like? What is your personal theme? Who are you? Find out by taking your art to a higher level—explore new materials that allow your portfolio to stand out from the crowd!
Create work in a real artist studio setting at the Cleveland Institute of Art as you learn about enamel and printmaking. We will use these materials to explore the theme of identity.
This intensive studio experience will allow you to take your drawn, painted, and printed images and transform them into original and exciting work. Improve your technical skills as you learn to edit your current artwork in Photoshop. You will learn the basics of enamel and printmaking processes that explore etching and several alternative photographic processes.
Bring your portfolio, sketchbook, and photographs to create a new line of artwork. This exploration and discovery will enable you to access your true personal identity and create artwork that resonates with you. Group critiques will help you to sharpen your focus and delve deeper into your work. The experience will be an asset to those who desire to go further in their art education and enhance their portfolio with unique pieces of work.
