Print­mak­ing at Barnes & No­ble

The Signal - - COMMUNITY - By Olga Kacz­mar Ne­whall Com­mu­nity Con­trib­u­tor

Lisa Dou­ble­day Mott will be demon­strat­ing print­mak­ing at the June 18, meet­ing of the Santa Clarita Artists As­so­ci­a­tion (SCAA). This event is free, open to the public and meets at 6:30 p.m. at Barnes & No­ble, 23630 Va­len­cia Blvd.

“Print­mak­ing is my first love, but I like to com­bine 2D and 3D work in any way that serves my sen­si­bil­i­ties. The medium is the mes­sage and each one is a lan­guage in it­self,” said Mott. “I’m plan­ning to show some dif­fer­ent print­mak­ing tech­niques and sam­ples thereof; in­taglio prints with their plates, wood cut blocks, and mono­prints. I’ll bring some print­mak­ing tools and share some tips on how to use them and care for them. I will demon­strate at least one hand print­ing tech­nique, a line trans­fer draw­ing.”

Mott re­ceived her B.F.A. in Il­lus­tra­tion at Univer­sity of Arkansas at Lit­tle Rock. After some post bac­calau­re­ate work in Print­mak­ing, she moved to Va­len­cia, Cal­i­for­nia in 1998 and be­gan teach­ing art classes for el­e­men­tary schools lo­cally. She be­came an In­struc­tional Lab Tech in the Art De­part­ment at Col­lege of the Canyons in 2001.

Come early, stand­ing room only by 6:30. See www.San­taClar­i­
