We make art to wake up ourselves, our colleagues, the world. As rigorous as any inner-oriented discipline, visual art reflects the maker’s life philosophy, personal temperament, and aspirations.
Teaching is the job of leading students to make connections, between their life stories and the greater world, to guide their research in both learning physical processes and mining their personal experiences.
As a teacher I aim for several fits: the match of medium to the individual’s skills, temperament, and goals; integrating material and message; understanding one’s nature and place on the continuum between spontaneity and control; and the balance between the intuitive impulse and its physical manifestation.
My class plans are structured to provide the framework necessary to acquiring technical skills and tools that allow students to experiment with confidence. I also emphasize the need to articulate one’s intentions through written exercises.

Luminosity and flowing marks of watercolor, combined with the surprises and complex multi-layering of painting on plexi transformed through the alchemy of working with a press. Explore these aspects of this medium and more as you print with watercolor on Plexiglas. We will review elements of working with watercolor, make “one-pass through the press” prints, ghost prints and multi-layered images. An expanded version of this workshop will be offered in July: see below.
Glow with the Flow: Watercolor and Watercolor Monotype, with Jane Goldman
July 15-19, 2019 at Mixit Print Studio, Somerville MA
Do you love the translucence and flowing marks of watercolor, the surprises and freshness of seeing your painting on plexi transform through the alchemy of working with a press?
Explore these aspects of this medium and more as you print with watercolor on Plexiglas for an exciting combination of luminosity and complex color layering. We will review elements of working with watercolor, make “one-pass” through the press prints, ghost prints and multi-layered images.
While the focus of this workshop is monotype, you can bring your previously created matrices (woodcuts, linocuts, etchings) to combine with watercolor layers. Alternatively, you can concentrate on watercolor at any level, with customized exercises and assignments for this immersive week of painting.
