Granada, Spain, September 6, 2011—A British-born fine-art printmaker who has lived two thirds of her life in Spain has just launched a new series of printmaking learning videos. She calls them her “Printmaking Master Classes” and with them hopes to help fine-art printmakers “take their printmaking skills to the next level.”Maureen Booth is well known in international printmaking circles, both as co-founder of the World Printmakers printmaking-resource site and as an artist, educator and art activist. “These new learning videos are just a continuation of the teaching I’ve done during most of my life as a printmaking professional,” says Maureen. “Since inaugurating my Gallinero artists’ residence a year and a half ago, and working with printmakers from all over the world, I’ve become aware of what today’s artists are looking for and what they need in terms of techniques and skills. Thanks to this video project designed by Spanish video producer Juan Carlos Romera, artists from all over the world now have access to my printmaking workshops. I find that very exciting.”
Maureen Booth, was formed in printmaking in the late 70’s under the tutelage of the master printmaker José García Lomas at the Rodríguez-Acosta Foundation in Granada. Thanks to a 30-year career as printmaker, editor, and mentor, Maureen is uniquely qualified to impart master classes in fine-art printmaking. “I was impressed with the breadth and depth of Maureen’s printmaking knowledge, as well as her generosity and winning way of imparting it,” says Deborah Maris Lader, founder and director of the Chicago Printmakers Collaborative, who recently did a solar-plate workshop in Maureen’s Granada studio.

The Printmaking Master Classes project launches with five videos, and more are in the pipeline. The first five titles in the series are: Solar Plate Master Class, Liquid Metal Master Class, Creative Printing Master Class, Traditional Etching Master Class, and How to Make a Chop. All of these videos, except the last one, are approximately a half hour long.

“We considered offering the classes on DVD’s,” says Maureen,” but we finally opted for direct video downloads. These are faster and less expensive—and the savings are passed on to clients. Our tests have convinced us that the image and sound quality of our video downloads are as good or better than those of most learning DVD’s available today.”More information at: http://printmakingmasterclasses.com and on Maureen’s blog: http://printmakingclassesinspain.com.
