In this 6 hour workshop we will explore printing watercolors from various substrates such as frosted vellum or coated mat board. The instructor will demonstrate the proper way to get the most out of each application of paint, as well as discuss various papers to use. After lunch, we will use vellum to cut stencils and compose them on the backing sheets to print multiple layered images. Using watercolors offers myriad ways to apply the paint including drawing with the tube, washes, and beautiful evaporated puddles.
Susan Hover Oehme received her BFA in printmaking and painting from the University of Michigan, School or Art in Ann Arbor, and continued her print study at NYU with Krishna Reddy. She has been a life-long artist and won several grants early in her career, which enabled her to purchase her first press. Four presses later, and many years in between, she now owns and is the Master Printer of Oehme Graphics in Steamboat Springs. Before launching OG in 2010, she was the Director/ Master Printer at Riverhouse Editions from 1996 to 2009. Prior to her move to Colorado, she lived and worked in New York City and printed at Tyler Graphics with such artists as Frank Stella, Helen Frankenthaler, and Joan Mitchell, and also free-lanced in many smaller print studios based in the city.
Ms. Oehme has taught numerous print workshops at institutions across the country including University of Denver, Boston University, Scripps College, Anderson Ranch Arts Center, Women’s Studio Workshop, Brandeis University, and Northwestern University. She has lectured at the Minneapolis Institute of Art on the legacy of Tyler Graphics, and at the Anderson Ranch Arts Center and the Steamboat Art Museum. She is past-president of the Steamboat Springs Arts Council, and sits on the Board of Directors.
