Printmaking

This is a ten week Printmaking class for adults or older youth. We will explore several different types of printmaking including:

Watercolor monoprints – a print painted with watercolor on plexiglass which is then transferred to wet paper for the final image.

Strappo printing – a combination of painting and printing. It is developed as a reverse painting, resulting in a dry acrylic transfer created on a smooth surface such as glass. It is then transferred to a paper support.

Lino print – a form of printmaking by cutting into a lino which is then inked and a piece of paper is placed over it and then it is run through a printing press or pressure is applied by hand to transfer the ink to the paper.

Gelli prints – using a soft silicone plate that allows you to create a monotype without a press.

Drypoint etching on plexiglass – an intaglio printmaking method that involves scratching an image into a plate with a pointed tool. These lines create a burr that holds ink, meaning the print reveals the drawing.

Xerox transfers with embossing – adding text to the background of artwork by transferring Xerox copies onto wood. Then, add embossing to give it a metallic touch.

  • Thursdays 6:30-8:30pm

$245 for 20 hours of class time and supplies (enroll by Jan 2 to save $70!)
