Instructor Bio

Charles Criner

Charles Criner is the Artist in Residence at The Printing Museum. Charles is the kind of artist that likes to “exhaust” the medium. He “pulls” his prints in black and white, then in color, and on top of that he sometimes adds acrylic over the print to produce original paintings on paper. He, however, is also parsimonious, or rather, enjoys the limitations of using only three colors and no more to make his prints. Furthermore, he is the kind of artist / craftsman who prizes the concrete relationship between himself and his work. Criner always pulls prints himself, never letting other professional printers do this for him.
