Kerr Grabowski Workshop

Announcing a 3-day workshop opportunity. If you have any questions, contact Marla Hattabaugh at mchquilts@cox.net.

Kerr Grabowski
3 Days of Design and Deconstructed Screen Printing
February 14-16
Location: Marla Hattabaugh Studio
6339 E. Mitchell Dr.Scottsdale, AZ 85251
Cost: $250 for three days

If you want to know why your pieces do or do not work, to be able to simplify and make work stronger—
along with Deconstructed Screen Printing, this is the workshop for you!

We begin with a very quick, fun design exercise to “realign” our brains,
followed by a Powerpoint show of painting/drawings with images grouped according to the design principle used.
We will discuss images as they are shown.
This is exciting and revealing as it visually simplifies and makes very obvious which design principles the artist used
and how universal the usage is. If time allows, we will do another quick design exercise.

After lunch we begin deconstructed printing creating a series of prints based on chosen or assigned principle of design.

On day 2 we will do design/composition exercise and discussions until lunch.
After lunch we will print based on designs created.
On the last day we will print all day with a break for discussion of work being done.

Kerr will provide extensive handouts on deconstructed printing and design.
This is a fun, creative and enlightening workshop---guaranteed to send you home excited and chock full of ideas/images
to work with. (along with knowledge of deconstructed screen printing)
