The Museum School at the Cape Cod Museum of Art presents:
Drawing Into Printing with Ann Guiliani
(4) Saturdays, September 9 – September 30, from 1:00 – 3:30 pm.
Members $165/ Non-Members $180; includes $25 supply fee

In this 4-week course, instructor Ann Guiliani places an emphasis on exploring printmaking in the context of drawing.
Students are introduced to the media of printmaking, explore mark-making and line drawing, practice direct drawing from imagination to observation, and learn how to define limitations and possibilities.
Working with the Pronto plate or laser plate, students learn the “feel” of the plate with direct drawing, practice tonal variations by using computer-generated imagery or photography, and continue experimenting with other materials to gain tonal variations.
Students will enjoy the possibilities of the combo print (Monoprints using monotype and lithography together). Materials provided in class such as brayers, rollers, ink, and additives, with the exception of Printmaking Paper. Ann will have Printmaking Paper available at an additional cost (variable depending on the amount, size, and weight).
Suggested materials list. Ann will also have supplies available for purchase:
Lots of cotton rags like cotton tees, cut into small pieces measuring approximately 8-10”
Roll of paper towel

Ann Guiliani has two master’s degrees: one in Painting and Art Education from New York University and another in Printmaking and Visual Design from the University of Massachusetts. Ann moved from West New York, New Jersey to Cape Cod with her husband and taught at Cape Cod Community College from 1984 to 2000. Versed in so many media, she taught all the art offerings, even Graphic Design which she still works in from time to time. In 2000 her life was altered in caring for her parents as well as her husband with frequent trips between Cape Cod and Florida. The frequent changes in environment inspired a number of major bodies of work. Her six-foot drawings of “Palms in the Wind,” her Paintings of Water; and a series of Drawing From a Moving Car, all challenge moments in time where movement becomes an essential element of the work. Ann is an emerging artist, who has garnered awards both nationally and internationally. She has had five solo shows since returning to Cape Cod in 2015.
