"Lost Foam Aluminum Casting for Beginner's" with Mary Klopfer · June 20-24, 2011
Create a sculpture in Styrofoam and pack it in sand. Aluminum is melted and poured into the
sand. When it's cool, sculpture is pulled out of the sand and, just like magic you have an
aluminum version of what you sculpted in foam. We'll be working in the SOCA foundry and
will create cast metal sculptures much the way it has been done for thousands of years, but
with twentieth century technology! Students can cast 1-2 pieces. Size limit for sculpture
is 9" H x 3" W x 4 ½" D. Class limited to 12 students.
Cost: Fee of $250 for Artlink members, $275 for non-members; Students responsible for the
following Supply List.
Leather work gloves, safety glasses, disposable respirators, high-top work boots, or hiking
boots. Students will be charged for aluminum by the pound. Approximate cost of aluminum per
student would be $28.00 for 20 lbs.

"Mixed Media Relief Print Workshop" with Art Cislo · June 27 through July 1, 2011
Students will be using/learning woodcut techniques in combination with other drawing media.
The hand-rubbed print will be emphasized over the use of the press. Other medium
incorporated in the woodcut print will be watercolor, pastel as well as monotype. This
approach will result in one-of-a-kind prints rather than an edition. The techniques will be
relatively simple, drawing oriented and the process is always open to new input and
explorations (e.g. putting down watercolor first, then cutting a block and printing over
it). These are techniques teachers can use in their classrooms as can artists in their
studio. Class limited to 12 students.
Cost: Fee of $250 for Artlink members, $275 for non-members; Students responsible for the
following Supply List.Student's preference in drawing media, any combination of charcoal, graphite, watercolor, brush, pen and ink, Conte, oils, etc. A few rags e.g. corduroy cloth. A few good sheets of paper like Stonehenge or Arches Text, or some Hot Press Watercolor paper for final prints. Gouges: if possible bring a small v-gouge, a half-round gouge, and a sharp knife

Workshops are held 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday at the Rolland Art Center,
University of Saint Francis, 1111 Leesburg Road, Fort Wayne, IN 46808. No refunds unless
