She won't be going to Greece next year, and only needs three more people for this year. Experienced printmakers may use other non-toxic intaglio processes, woodcut,and computers in the pursuit of their own vision with permission of instructor; advanced artists may work independently in painting.
July 31 - August 15, 2006 , you will have the chance to work in the inspiring surroundings of the Skopelos Foundation of the Arts on the Greek island of Skopelos with noted printmaker Linda Goodman, a veteran leader of workshops in Florence, Italy, and the United States. Immerse yourself in the authentic culture of this island in the Aegean northeast of Athens and let its beauty refresh your creative spirit. Blend concentrated artmaking with relaxing socializing, dining, swimming and walking, while enjoying Skopelos’s charms. There will be group breakfasts, a welcome meal, and closing exhibition and dinner reception with local townspeople.
Monotype, monoprint, and chine collè
This hands-on workshop offers demonstrations in Goodman’s specialties of oil- and water-based monotype, monoprint and chine collè — easily accessible mediums for both beginning and experienced artists — along with concentrated studio work, insightful critiques, personal attention and group camaraderie. Health-conscious approaches are emphasized, with an eye to using a minimum of solvents (such as vegetable oil instead of thinner when possible) ferric chloride and copper etching, or drypoint. Experienced printmakers may use other non-toxic intaglio processes, woodcut,and computers in the pursuit of their own vision with permission of instructor; advanced artists may work independently in painting.
About the Class
•The focus is on monotype, monoprint, chine collé and drypoint or line etching. Direct and expressive, monotype joins the radiant qualities of prints with the spontaneity of painting.Drypoint/line etching fundamentals are included for those wishing to apply these techniques to monoprint.

•Etching facilities available. Experienced print-makers may use other nontoxic etching or relief processes inthe pursuit of their vision with permission of instructor.
