NEW! Easy Printmaking Methods


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.
