@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
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.
