NATURAL INK SILKSCREEN INSTRUCTIONAL ARTIST RESIDENCY
This unique production residency acknowledges the rich history of color in Mexico by incorporating the knowledge of natural colorants with the silkscreen printing technique on fabric. The program includes 3 weeks of master instruction (27 hours total; 9 hours per week) to understand the principles of natural colorants and their use in printing mediums through the technique of silkscreen applied on fabric. The program includes hands-on instruction with cochineal (carmine), añil (blue), and pericon (yellow) from Mexico. Instruction is in Spanish and English focusing in learning and experimentation with traditional organic primers (cactus and lime, rabbit glue, gelatin) stuccos, organic based temperas and frescoes, and related art techniques. This residency is a comprehensive program to learn the natural colorant of Oaxaca, including resources for a better understanding of the complex culture of Mexico and the history of its colors.
