NEW! Easy Printmaking Methods

$180

with Michael Piotrowski

Calendar Next available session starts Sep 8, 2022 at 5:30 pm, runs for 4 weeks

Experiment with printmaking in this class focusing on modern techniques in drypoint and monoprints. Students will try their hand at drypoint on plastic to experience a new take on a traditional practice that is similar to engraving on metal. We will also be creating monoprints, a form of printmaking with lines, shapes, or images that can only be made once, unlike most printmaking, which allows for multiple originals. Both methods are easy to learn and fun to explore. Don’t feel confident in your drawing skills? No problem! This class is for adults and mature teenagers of all skill levels. There is a materials fee included in the tuition for this course. 

All printmaking classes include 2 hours a week of open studio time.

NEW! Make an Art Compendium

$150

with Dawn Zichko

Calendar Next available session starts Sep 18, 2022 at 10:30 am, runs for 4 weeks

Create your own art compendium! What is an art compendium, you may ask? Your compendium will be a handbound book, made by you, that will be a safe place created to muse and play and make mistakes. Become more curious about process rather than product under the guidance of teaching artist Dawn Zichko. Students will explore a variety of mixed-media processes: image transfer, free-form painting, hand sewing, collage, and adding ephemera or found objects. Having an art compendium means working with a process without worrying over finishing or even sharing. It becomes a springboard for those other artistic pursuits. Create your own place to start or further your own private and unique art practice! There is a materials fee included in the tuition for this course. This class is for adults and mature teenagers of all skill levels.

Each participant will get the chance to make artwork inspired by a theme, then create and bind a book with the artwork made by the group, and make copies for each participant.

The themes can be eye-opening and heart-expanding! Let the magic begin! There is a materials fee included in the tuition for this course. This class is for adults and mature teenagers of all skill levels.

Printing with Plants

$175

with Kate Daley

Calendar Next available session starts Sep 22, 2022 at 10:30 am, runs for 4 weeks

Capture the vibrant colors and shapes of nature through the magical process of eco-printing! Eco-printing is the direct transfer of plant pigments to a surface through steam or immersion in hot water. We’ll create a series of dynamic eco-prints on paper and fabric using flowers from summer’s end and leaves we collect during peak fall foliage season. Nature is so abundant! 

The class will cover the preparation and care of cellulose and protein fibers so that the eco-prints will have a long, colorful life. We’ll make beautiful prints on paper that can be used for greeting cards, bookmarks or other botanical art. Plant-based dyes will also be incorporated to add another dimension to our prints. There is a materials fee included in the tuition for this course. This class is for adults and mature teenagers of all skill levels.
