This exciting new follow-up/next level class is designed for those students who have completed the Beginner Workshop. This intermediate workshop is for students interested in advancing to the next level and continuing to make prints at home without access to a printing press. In your own space you will learn how to make multiple color/multi-layered prints using direct printing techniques first presented in the beginning course.

We will cover designing and creating a print that is built up in layers, printed more than once, using monotype, relief printing and drypoint methods. We will also cover the use of registration systems and tips on using color as a means of personal expression, choosing a pallet, mixing inks and paints and a bit of history about pigments. Emphasis will be placed upon personal artistic development. Students will choose their own subject matter and work in whatever size/scale fits their needs.

All classes will be live via Zoom to include technical demonstrations and group discussions. Everyone will be provided with a supply kit prior to the first session containing a variety of water-based inks and materials. Please verify your mailing address when registering. Registration will close Monday, 5/10.
