Join printmakers Thomas Thielemann and Lindsay Barrick as they co-lead a dynamic, six-week printmaking workshop. This intensive course, concentrating on mixed media approaches to printmaking with an emphasis on image transfer, is open to artists of all levels. Beginners are welcome. Participants will enjoy engaging demos and extensive, personalized instruction as they quickly move from exploring the basics to creating polished works of art. Tom and Lindsay will utilize many methods of printmaking, including collagraph, Intaglio, monoprint and silk screening. Techniques and printing press skills will be emphasized in a creative, collaborative atmosphere. Pre-registration and payment required.

Thomas Thielemann is the department head of Caldwell Community College & Technical Institute’s Fine Arts Department. He and his wife, Lynda Lea Bonkemeyer, work from Moon Head Studio in Lenoir, NC. Lindsay Barrick is a mixed media artist working out of Minetta Lane Studio in Hickory, NC.

The Open Studio is an opportunity for artists to work with an unclothed model. This is a recurring class offered in six-week blocks. Participants can draw, paint, collage or use the printing press. The model holds the same position for three hours with several breaks. There is no instruction. All ability levels are welcome. High school students may participate in this adult studio with written parental permission. We are unable to pro-rate our Open Studio.





Thanks to the LB Lane Family Foundation and Kulynych Family Foundation, HMA has scholarships available for adults and children who normally can't afford to take classes. One student recipient stated, "The reason I want to attend the Facial Facades camp is because it would help me to achieve my future dream of becoming a beautician. I will get the start I need to begin my path into the world of beauty. One day, I may be able to help people who cannot afford expensive makeovers. I also hope this would be the beginning of some new friendships."
