If you’re interested in having mathematical laws work in your favor—and you are—you’re going to have to brush up your Internet skills a bit beyond sending emails and logging onto your Facebook and Twitter accounts. You should at least know how to create and maintain a blog. This is fun and easy, once you surmount a not-too-steep learning curve. I cannot overemphasize the importance of Internet for artists. A dozen years ago, when my husband proposed to make me my first website, I said, “What do I want a website for? I’m an artist.” Today he’s at work on his seventh (Or eighth? I’ve lost count.) printmaking website, some of which are exclusively mine, others in which I participate with other printmakers and studios. Today 90% of my living comes either directly or indirectly via the Web of Webs. (more…)

Maureen Booth in her printmaking studioWelcome to Printmaking Courses in Spain, a site with information on workshops and collaborative printmaking in my studio in Granada, Spain. I’ve tried to include enough information here to convince you that your best option for your next summer’s art holiday is a printmaking workshop here in Granada. You’ll love it. Everybody does.

Can’t make it in the summer? Drop me an email and we’ll discuss other possibilities. Never done printmaking before? Better yet. You’re in for some delightful surprises. Prefer to work one-on-one on a collaborative printmaking project? That’s another possibility. In fact, I’ve been doing more and more of that  sort of work lately, as artists from other disciplines are discovering the fascination of the inked plate.

So, I invite you to meander through these pages at your leisure and see if they don’t whet your appetite for rolling images onto rich papers.  Let me call your attention to a couple of important changes from previous years’ offerings:

  • El Gallinero, my new artist’s residence, an inviting  suite in a cabin here on the property which sleeps up to three people and provides spacious, stylish and comfortable accommodation, including good workspace.
  • Our village restaurants offer hearty, inexpensive local-style meals so,  though the Gallinero has a fully-equipped kitchen, you don’t have to prepare your own meals  if you don’t want to. You just slip down to the village and order your meal. It’s only a five minute walk along the river.

If you have any questions just email them to me and I’ll get back to you the same day.

And, whatever else you do, keep on printing!
