Art Educator Workshop: Printmaking Exploration (In-Person)

Produce prints in MCAD's beautiful and expansive printmaking studio while devoting studio time to technical investigation and personal exploration. This week-long workshop for art educators will include demonstrations of pressure prints, pochoir, relief printing, and several monotype printmaking techniques.

A general overview will also include: Paper preparation; inks; registration techniques; different types of inexpensive printing presses; and gadgets that teachers can add to their classroom toolkits. This workshop includes optional time for informal small group sessions for art educators who teach similar subjects or age groups to share lesson plans. / Non-toxic, water-based inks will be used. / Facilities fee of $53 in addition to class tuition. / This class will have a one-hour lunch break each day. / Graduate credit is available. / Open to students ages 18 and above.
