@JCU Mezzotint Workshop with Kerrie Cleverdon at TAFE Qld North Art Studio

Invitation to Mezzotint Workshop with Kerrie Cleverdon at TAFE Qld North Art Studio

June 4-5, 2016

Clevedon - mezzotint

This practical printmaking workshop is the next in the series offered by Inkmasters Cairns as part of its biennial Inkfest program.

Kerrie Cleverdon, a full time artist printmaker, will introduce the fine art of mezzotint - a method of creating an image from an engraving on copper or steel. 

The image is made by scraping and burnishing away a uniformly roughened surface. 

In this type of intaglio print, subtle gradations of light and shade form the image. 

Participants will create a mezzotint and gain a deeper appreciation of this art form. 

Kerrie will also give a brief overview of the history of mezzotint, and an introduction to contemporary mezzotint artists. 

Fees 

$175 Inkmaster members 

$205 non-members.
