Summer 2018: Serigraphy workshop @ Muhu Print 4

Summer 2018: Serigraphy workshop @ Muhu Print 4

We organised Muhu Print 4th time this year. 22 artists from Estonia and abroad gathered on Muhu island, A.I. Art residency to work together with printmaking materials. This time it was extra-tough for me as not only organising the event in general, I organised the main workshop, serigraphy introducing and practising workshop for the participants. Cyanotype workshop was leaded by Kadri Toom, the event in general was organised by Lembe Ruben. For the workshop I started from building up a whole screeprinting studio equipment suitable for transporting to 20 artists working in the wild nature.  The preparations were massive, including building a brand new light-table and screenprint frames, but the end result was great! Lot of many-layered works were produced in Muhu on many different materials. Artists with different knowledge and experience-level did beautiful experiments on site, also mixing the techniques with cyanotype and other mediums. As intended! Thank you, Mari, for being my assistent in Muhu! We had a great office there! Thank you, my husband, for turning out to be so skillful carpenter! Thank you, Kadri and Lembe, for organising such a succesful workshop + the exhibitions after!

Spring 2018 report

Spring 2018 report

As every spring, Tallinn Art Hall composed an enourmous group exhibition “Kevadnäitus 2018” https://www.kunstihoone.ee/programm/juubelikevad-2018/ There was my two big etching presented: “Inhale” and “Exhale” from the series “Breath. Rhythm II”. Being art teacher, the spring is the most intensive time. Many courses ended up as student exhibitions. At the Estonian Academy of Arts, my drawing course for the III BA was about private spaces. We visited each other homes – my home and students places. Sketches done on our  chambered meetings at homes and  the artworks of the experience were presented as an exhibition at Draakon Underground Gallery: https://www.facebook.com/events/182772162368340/permalink/183857152259841/ With the VHK Art School students we participated in Tallinn XV Print Triennal Children and Youth Printmaking exhibition at the Tallinn Art School. Many months of extra printing classes were done with students at the Grafodroom studio. We printed works in linocut, screenprint and drypoint techniques. There was also the works of graduation presented as an exhibition by the art class of VHK Art School, placed in our own dear Olevimäe classrooms. I´m happy with my students graphic works, that I instructed. Series of etchings and screenprint were made. https://www.facebook.com/events/978439762331328/ Giving a printmaking workshop for children in Evald Okas Museum at Haapsalu, is already a tradition for me. This time I had beautiful screenprinting workshop there: http://www.evaldokasemuuseum.ee/eng/courses/index.html Due to the Tallinn Print Triennal I was also invited to make printmaking workshops at Kumu Art museum. It was pleasure to give drypoint, linocut and screenprint workshop on three Sundays:  https://www.facebook.com/events/1701772316597147/ I also had a week-long printmaking artcamp for students at Kumu Art Museum – that was quite a challenge! But I taught 4 techniques in 5 days with 16 children.. Rough...
