He was elected a Royal Academician in 1991 and in 1993 was Official Artist-in-Residence for the British Council in Hong Kong. Jacklin presently lives and works in Connecticut.
July 9 - 10 SILK AQUATINT with Julio Valdez Saturday and Sunday, 10am−4pm 2-day weekend workshop, limited to 8; All Levels $275 members, $300 non-members
Participants in this workshop will create painterly prints through the process of silk aquatint a.k.a. silk collagraph. This is a non-acid alternative to etching, where the image is created by painting with a white acrylic medium on top of a black silk surface glued to a plastic board, to produce a wide variety of tones and textures. Once dry, the plate is then inked and wiped in the same manner as an etched plate and printed on an etching press. This workshop will also offer tips on color mixing, modifying and demonstrate the uniqueness of using water based inks. Participants will leave with a portfolio of new, fresh painterly prints.
