Kent Blossom Art Intensives

Printmakers: Join us this summer for Kent Blossom Art Intensives! Similar to an artist residency, participants create a self-directed body of artwork under the guidance of resident School of Art faculty at Kent State University and talented visual artists from around the country.

“Carving Creativity: Experimental Blocks and the New Woodcut”
Woodcut, the oldest form of printmaking, is a versatile medium with boundless potential for reinvention and conceptual approaches. A variety of methods and techniques will be introduced including white-line woodcut and large-scale carving and printing. Participants will work closely with the resident faculty member and visiting artists to explore multidisciplinary approaches to the medium with a conceptual focus on the power of personal and collective histories, culture, and the everyday.

Resident Faculty Member:
Taryn McMahon

Visiting Artists:
LaToya Hobbs
Breanne Trammell

Participants will work in the studio seven days a week with access to studio space, labs, equipment, and tools at the Center for the Visual Arts at Kent State University.

Dates: June 3-16, 2024
Application deadline is May 17.
