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.

Cotton jersey t-shirt material lends itself to a range of clothing, so each week students can take on different types of garments from the perspective of eco-friendly designing. Take your sketches off the page and try them on in Re-Fashioning the Tee! No experience required. Teenagers at all levels of experience can be accommodated in our small classes. For teens ages 13 and up.

Students will bring their own sewing machines. If you need help finding one to rent, please contact us at education@garrisonartcenter.org

Open to all skill levels. There is a materials fee included in the tuition for this course.

Beginning Fiddle & Mandolin

$130

with Harry Bolick

Calendar Next available session starts Sep 14, 2022 at 7 pm, runs for 4 weeks

While learning a new tune each week, we will cover basic bowing patterns, scales, a bit of music theory, and touch on the history of the music and each tune. Special attention will be given to demonstrating the melody as it relates to the chords that a backup instrument would provide. The goal is to bring all of these bits of fiddle lore together in a way that will help a developing fiddler recognize patterns in the music so that they can more quickly join in the fun of jam sessions. In the subsequent weeks, we will build on what we have learned, covering a more varied and more complex set of tunes and developing second fiddle parts to "back up" the melody fiddler. The class will be adjusted to meet the abilities and needs of the students. This class is for adults and mature teenagers of all skill levels.

Students will bring their own instruments. If you need help finding one to rent, please contact us at education@garrisonartcenter.org
