    June 17 - 21, 2019

    Medium: Printmaking
    Level: All Levels
    Tuition: $750
    Lab Fee: $150

    This printmaking class designed to explore each individual artist’s personal vision using the processes that will be presented during the class. The class is designed for artists with no printmaking experience to advanced printmakers.

    The emphasis of the class will be found materials and using found surfaces to develop print imagery that reflects each artist’s vision. Materials such as cardboard, recycled wood, and plastics will be used and incorporated into making printing plates. The class will also cover encaustic collagraph, carborundum printing, some silkscreen, and drypoint and investigate how these processes can be used with found materials. The class uses non-toxic materials and multi-color printmaking will be covered. The class will look at contemporary artists who work create using experimental print work via PowerPoint presentations. Each artist will receive one-to-one consultations during the week-long class along with individual instruction.
    Students need only to bring pencils, pens, and er
