A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

March, 2005

Professor of Art Annette Mitchell has released a new DVD and video based on her book, Foam Is where the Art Is-New Ways to Print. Both are approximately 106 minutes long and feature beautifully photographed instruction of Mitchell’s printmaking method using polystyrene foam. Says Mitchell, “They demonstrate many processes for creating fine art archival prints without expensive equipment-an attractive process to studio artists and schools working within limited budgets.” Mitchell’s formal training was in traditional printmaking techniques such as stone lithography, etching and aquatint, and she applied that knowledge to contemporary materials, resulting in a method quickly embraced by colleagues and students.
