We will be discussing a broad range ceramic printmaking approaches through the lens of historical and contemporary contexts. Participants will experiment with the application of these techniques through the creation of a series of small projects. This dynamic class will be a blend of working in groups with classmates, watching live demonstrations and working on your own time.

The Instructor: Marianne's art practice articulates itself around a site-specific approach to installation art that attempts to illustrate the human perceptual relationship with nature while exhibiting attentiveness to natural environment agency. It questions a notion of responsibility or entanglement, permanence or ephemerality, perception or realism, and is sensitive to the issues of climate change and the pursuit of global environmental sustainability. Her artwork is materialized through performance, video, earth art, ceramics, sounds, and installations.

Originally from Rimouski Québec, Canada, Marianne's work has been featured in solo and group exhibitions in Québec, Canada, and France. She has taken part in several artist residencies, and frequently offers specialized training in image transfer techniques on clay. She holds a BFA from Emily Carr University of Art + Design in Vancouver, Canada and will have completed her MFA at Alfred University New York, USA in 2021.
