Spend a week this summer discovering your printmaking potential! Learn and develop the many varied ways of creating images with woodcut and monotype, and combinations of the two. Enjoy the excitement of seeing your layered images emerge from this age-old, elegant way of working. Three hours of morning class time will be spent learning the crafts of carving and printing as well as the various ways to layer color with monoprint techniques.
Quality carving tools must be purchased prior to class. Information on this will be sent to enrolled participants. Wood will be available for purchase.
