Sid’s Studio: Woodblock Printing

Sid’s Studio: Woodblock Printing

Our current exhibition, Remington and Russell in Black and White, explores the artists’ works made in grisaille and used for illustrations in books and magazines. In some cases, a team of artisans would transfer the artist’s painted image into print form for publication.

Join us for our next Sid’s Studio adult workshop in which local artist Benjamin Muñoz will guide participants in creating (carving) their own woodcut block to print a small edition. Students are encouraged to bring a sketch sized around 4×5 inches.

Format

This one-day workshop takes place in an afternoon session in the museum’s studio classroom:

  • Saturday, September 14 @ 1:30-4:00pm

Supplies

The museum will provide each student all necessary art supplies and materials during class.

Cost

$15 Supply Fee

Teaching Artist

Benjamin Muñoz is a Dallas-based multi-disciplinary artist whose practice spans painting, installation, and monumental printmaking. Muñoz grew up in the vibrant Chicano culture of Corpus Christi, Texas, which boasts the country’s largest Day of the Dead celebration, lowriders shows, and unique food culture.

Muñoz attended Del Mar Community College in Corpus Christi for two years before the combination of “a young man’s arrogance” and starting his family gave him the confidence and circumstances to leave school and begin his journey as a professional artist. His first big break came when he was awarded the city’s biggest grant to create the exterior of the local arts center. In 2018, he relocated to Dallas.

His work can be found in the public collections of The Amon Carter Museum of American Art, The Bernard A. Zuckerman Museum of Art, The Blanton Museum of Art, The Mexic-Arte Museum, The National Museum of Mexican Art,  and extensive private collections, including the largest collection of Latino art in the world belonging to Gilberto Cardenas. Muñoz has been honored with 17 solo exhibitions throughout the United States and was included in Soy de Tejas, a traveling survey of Texas-born Latino artists.

Muñoz’s practice has been featured in The Austin Chronicle, D Magazine, The Dallas Morning News, Glasstire, Pressing Matters Magazine, Sightlines Magazine, and Southwest Contemporary, among others. He has also been a guest on local NPR stations and the Hello, Print Friend podcast. He is also the co-founder of Familia Print Shop with Hugo Juarez, Dallas’ only community print center offering access to lithography, etching, woodcut, and screenprint across five presses. Muñoz currently works daily in his West Dallas studio when he is not spending time with his wife and three daughters.
