Workshop: Cities in Shapes, with Lindsey Jones
Join Lindsey Frances Jones in the Macy Printmaking Studio to learn about printmaking as part of her exhibition “I Was Made in Shapes.” She will introduce students to silkscreen printmaking through stencils and contact paper screen printing. Silkscreen is a stenciling technique for surface printing. Students will focus on creating abstract city buildings based on shapes through a monoprint process of silkscreen contact paper stencils and other stencils. These works will be kept by participants and also join the community collage for the Gottesman Libraries commissioned art program “I Was Made in Shapes” which is due to launch in the Offit Gallery in early December.
Lindsey Frances Jones is a mixed-media visual artist, illustrator, printmaker, and writer living in the New York City area. Her visual art practice works across illustration, printmaking, painting, poetry, and collage. Her work is in individual collections and organizational commissions. She is also a current master’s student in Art and Art Education at Teachers College, Columbia University. She is interested in the intersection of printmaking and resilience research in psychology. Lindsey is a 2022 awardee of the Gottesman Libraries commissioned art, funded through the generosity of the Myers Foundations.
