In celebration of the 2021 new acquisitions from the Brandywine Workshop, come explore the exhibition, get inspired, and create your own block print drawn from this collection. Using your personal narrative and experiences in this three-hour workshop, session participants will learn how to create a print from a sketch, plus basic carving techniques, basic hand printing, and using a printing press to create a small edition by guidance with a professional artist and local Savannah printmaker. This class is ideal for beginner,  intermediate, or advanced levels. All supplies will be included. Participants are encouraged to bring an idea in advance for a print before the class begins. All levels are welcome.

Jennifer Mack-Watkins is a contemporary visual artist whose primary studio practice entails silkscreen and Japanese woodblock prints. Her work investigates the societal constructs that can leave women feeling isolated, and she explores definitions of femininity based on widely held notions of beauty and cultural norms. Her artistic aesthetic draws from a confluence of reference points, most of which include her Japanese Mokuhanga printmaking techniques and her culturally rich Southern roots. In the summer of 2015, Jennifer was selected to participate in the Mokuhanga Innovation Laboratory artist-in-residence program in Yamanashi, Japan and was a Joan Mitchell Foundation 2015 Emerging Artist nominee. She is also the recipient of “The Elizabeth Catlett Printmaking Award” presented by Hampton University Museum.
Institutional acquisitions include Thomas J. Watson Library, Library of Congress, Zimmerli Museum, Agnes Scott College, Getty Research Institute, Newark Public Library, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Smith College, Museum Fine Arts Boston, and Clark Atlanta University. Her work is also held in the permanent collections of ABC Studios and many other private art collections. Jennifer has presented her work in the Rush Arts Gallery 20th Anniversary Exhibition and Print Portfolio that was exhibited in New York City, and at Miami SCOPE and PRIZM art fairs. Her work has been featured in The New York Times, Vogue, Art and Object, and Essence. Jennifer is a native of Charleston, South Carolina and currently lives and works in both New Jersey and Georgia. Jennifer holds a bachelor of arts in BA in studio arts from Morris Brown College, a MAT from Tufts University, and a MFA in Printmaking from Pratt Institute.
