Join AAM Educator Vanessa Porras this coming Wednesday at 2:30 p.m. (MT) on Art Studio Live! for an interview in Spanish with this month’s featured artist María Pujol.
A renowned graphic artist and the director of Barcelona’s Manera Negra engraving workshop, María Pujol creates unconventional three-dimensional prints that combine her sensitivity to both tradition and innovation through a mastery of the technique of photoengraving. Pujol’s works have been exhibited throughout Spain, as well as internationally in France, Italy, Mexico, Morocco, and here in the US in New York City.
Acompáñame este miércoles a las 2:30pm MT para nuestra primera entrevista en español en Art Studio Live. Nuestra artista destacada del mes es María Pujol, artista gráfica, basada en Barcelona, España. María crea grabados tridimensionales no típicos. Únete a la plática, ¡Te esperámos!
Teen Artists will meet with and learn from AAM staff, guest artists, and our creative community partners at Anderson Ranch. They will explore and build their art-making skills and present their work to the public in the spring.
Photoengraving is a printmaking process wherein an image is exposed onto a photosensitive plate. Master printmaker Maria Pujol specializes in this technique and has innovated in its traditional practice by adding the element of three-dimensionality. Join AAM Educator Vanessa Porras at 2:30 p.m. MT for a demo in 3D photoengraving.
The Teen Curators program allows participants to gain insight into different styles of curatorial practice. In this brand-new iteration of what has become a signature AAM highlight for teens, each curator will design their own creative project with support from museum staff.
Join the AAM and a special guest on Monday, April 26, 5–6 p.m. (MT) for an Art School Prep session that focuses on photographing your artwork and building a portfolio. This session will provide you with the skills needed to put together your own exceptional portfolio.
Teen Council meetings happen every other Tuesday from August to May. Through this program led by AAM Educator, Elisabeth Strunk, local teenagers create and implement events for their peers.

Last week we learned how to turn our photoengraving from a two-dimensional image into a three-dimensional object with master printmaker Maria Pujol’s innovative techniques. Join AAM Educator Vanessa Porras this Wednesday at 2:30 p.m. MT for a quick lesson in making an accordion-style artist book using a photoengraved image that explores all the possibilities of light and shadow!
