Print and Photo Workshops This Month at Alchemy Art Center

Woodcut Monotype by Nikki Barber and Don Kong Laos

Alchemy Art Center is continuing it’s visiting artist series with two incredible weekend workshops this month.

Watercolor Monotypes: Landscapes is being offered Saturday and Sunday, July 20-21 at Alchemy. This class will explore a printmaking technique that is perfect for painters, or for anyone interested in a versatile and fluid form of expression.

Nikki Barber is a professional printmaker based in Seattle who will get students familiar with this process. Students can create simple or complicated images, no art experience necessary.

Digital Darkroom, on offer Saturday and Sunday July 27-28, is a class for anyone interested in photography.

Students can start making unique darkroom prints with no camera or film necessary by converting a digital image (taken on phone or camera) into a transparency that can then be used to create black and white photo darkroom prints and cyanotypes.

Instructor Sara Condo is a Chicago-based artist and university instructor.
