Saturday, March 11, 1 – 3 p.m.
MOCA Makers are a series of adult art workshops, which bring forward an artistically interested public to work with and learn from local artists in South Florida. Topics such as figure drawing, print making, and portrait painting are hosted for all level of participants. Art Packs are available for purchase from the MOCA Shop.
This March, participants will be studying watercolor + block prints with artist and educator, Vinicius De Oliveira, inspired by the work of Didier William.
Inspired by contemporary painter Didier William, students will create block print designs layered over atmospheric watercolor paintings. For the first part of the workshop, students will produce colorful backgrounds using watercolor and inks, to serve as surfaces for their block prints. After designing and carving printing blocks, students will print their images onto watercolor paper and add additional touches. This process of multilayered, multitechnique art-making reflects Didier’s fragmented manner of storytelling and image-making as it merges abstract form and iconography.
