Weekend One (2-day): June 27 - 28, 2020. Classes run 9 am – 4 pm daily and students are welcome to stay late in their studio.
Welcome to the fun and fascinating world of printmaking! Learn techniques which can be reproduced in the home studio, without a printing press. Dive into innovative projects gleaned from April’s more than thirty years of printmaking experience. Learn how to make a printing plate from scratch, then use it to create a whimsical, Warhol-esque self portrait. Experiment with block printing and make wonderful mandalas, art cards and more. Produce richly textured monoprints by combining painting, stenciling, and printmaking with found objects. No experience is necessary, just bring your imagination and enthusiasm!
