The summer Studio Residency program takes place in Cambridge with instruction from leading Lesley faculty. Courses offered include printmaking, bookmaking, letterpress, and pedagogy.
This intensive residency offers artists a comprehensive residency experience in a
shorter period of time. From Monday to Saturday, museum visits, studio
work, workshops and demonstrations combine to provide a total immersion
experience in an urban setting of contemporary art. Artists choose one
of two disciplines that are offered. Demonstrations will provide a
base for learning new techniques to deepen personal studio work and classroom experiences. Participants will produce a
portfolio of work that will be presented for a final critique/seminar
at the end of this week-long studio intensive. Graduate students will
be required to produce a greater quantity of work.

Monotype Printmaking will provide a brief
overview of the history of monotype and show examples of historical and
contemporary monotypes, as well as prints from the Lesley student
archive. The first demonstration, An Introduction to Monotype, will
introduce subtractive and additive monotype techniques in black and
white oil-based inks. The concept of the cognate or
"ghost" print will be explored, as will issues of paper preparation,
press use and plate registration. The second demonstration, Techniques
in Color Monotype, will introduce a range of techniques that can achieve
multi-colored prints including stencil and water-based monotypes.

Artists' books exist at the unique intersection of sculptural objects, text, image, and sequence. Books can be dynamic and engaging art objects for artists who work in all mediums including painters, designers, printmakers, and writers. Write, Print, Bind will explore the structure and the content of handmade artists' books and offer participants the opportunity to create a range of sample book forms as well as a final project based on a topic of interest or personal narrative.
An introduction to book making techniques will cover traditional sewn structures such as signatures and Japanese stab binding, as well as folded and non-traditional sculptural structures, all of which can be adapted for the studio and classroom.
The participant can expect to explore papermaking and letterpress printing that includes the fundamentals of setting, printing, and actively incorporating text and image on the page. Further demonstrations in collage, experimental printmaking, and mixed media will help participants develop the rich interior content of books.
