NEW! Easy Printmaking Methods

$180

with Michael Piotrowski

Calendar Next available session starts Oct 6, 2022 at 6 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.

By cutting, shaping, embellishing and redesigning the most common wardrobe staple, we will learn sewing and patterning skills. 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

NEW! Make an Art Compendium

$150

with Dawn Zichko

Calendar Current session started 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.

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.
