This class is great for any artist who needs to expand their palette or feels intimidated by color. Special attention will be placed on printmaking, but can be easily translated into other art mediums such as painting. The first session will cover color theories, developing a “personal” palette, and color mixing demonstrations. In the second session, students will create a varied edition of color swatch prints using wood blocks provided by the instructor.

Fisher currently resides in the Twin Cities, where she teaches printmaking and drawing in the Art Department at Normandale Community College. Louise has exhibited both nationally and internationally, and her work has been included in private and public collections such as the Zuckerman Museum of Art, the University of North Florida and the Wichita Art Museum. Her most recent accomplishments include receiving the 2018 SGC International Graduate Fellowship Award and the 2021 Jordan Holly Fellowship Award as an artist-in-residence at In Cahoots. In her work, Louise explores ideas of biological rhythms through time-based media as well as the layering and repetitive action of printmaking. Her prints are characterized by an intense experience of color, and a post-digital hybridization of photographic and hand-drawn imagery.
