Printmaking Sampler (Fall 2014)

Fine Arts

Come and get your hands dirty and expand your visual vocabulary by learning about printmaking and papermaking. Students will spend one session making paper, one session learning woodcut, and one session learning intaglio printing. 

During each class, students will have personal work time to explore each method of printmaking to create their own prints. You will have the ability to use the paper you have made to print on, as well! The instructor will demonstrate foundational methods and techniques, as well as show examples of actual prints as a way to get started and show the possibilities of these processes.

Emphasis will be on the process, as well as exploration and personal experimentation. Students in this class will be using non-toxic water based inks, so it is perfect for teachers, those who want to do printmaking at home, or those simply want to reduce exposure to solvents. / Previous drawing experience helpful, but not required. / Facilities fee of $27 and materials fee of $25 in addition to class tuition. / Open to students ages 16 and above.

What to Bring: Pen or pencil; notebook or sketchbook; sketches, drawings, doodles, or photographs that you want to use for source material. / A complete list of suggested materials will be discussed during the first class meeting.

What to Wear: Clothes appropriate for messy creativity and closed toed shoes.
