Teaching at the University of Fine Art in Phnom Penh

Starting in November 2001 I taught a 6 week workshop in printmaking at the Royal University of Fine Arts in Phnom Penh.

The workshop began with a theory course, followed by a few hours drawing in the Phnom Penh National Museum grounds. These drawings were used as a starting point to teach the students the method of lino cutting.

The various photos show the students at the museum; cutting the lino blocks and printing them; the magic of peeling back the paper to reveal the print and the creation of monotypes. The project culminated with an exhibition titled “Open Window” at the Java Cafe/Gallery in Phnom Penh in February 2002, sponsored by the British Embassy. It was the monotype prints that proved to be the most popular prints. Click to see the invite and an article in the Cambodian Daily newspaper.
