PrintmakingForBeginnersSunAM

Sunday Morning Class January

Printmaking can be a magical and addictive way to make multiples or a cohesive series of art! We will play with ways to create multi layered prints applying age-old methods to new materials. Artists no longer need a big press and fully equipped studios to make this kind of art, which is groundbreaking!!! This class is great for visual journaling techniques, card making, for those who have always wanted to carve your own stamps, or for those who have always been curious about the wonderful world of printmaking as an art medium. 

This is an adult course, but teens are welcome to participate as well. Children under 13 may accompany an adult taking the course.
 

COST: By Donation (students have been paying anywhere from $5 – $50 per class which comes out to $20-$200 for the whole course. Please pay what matches your financial means and needs. No on turned away due to lack of funds.
