Introduction to Printmaking for Adults


Starting with simple stamping and monotypes, this class offers a broad survey of basic techniques in printmaking. With only a rolling pin and a wooden spoon, learn to make rich layered abstract images on paper. Try carving a linoleum block for a relief print gift card or making your own collagraph plate from cardboard, glue, and found materials. Using colorful water-based inks and other non-toxic materials, we will take an open, experimental approach to the art of the print, with a focus on studio fun and the joy of happy accidents! This class pairs well with “Exploring the Artist’s Journal” or “Collage and Mixed Media.”
