Course Description

Enter the printmaking studio’s fun and exciting world. From making a series of cards, decorating fabric, and creating fine art, printmaking is a dynamic resource for creative exploration. Leyah will demonstrate the very different ways the surfaces of linocuts, gelli plates, plexiglass, and finally photo silkscreen can be prepared, inked, and printed into series or one of a kind images using the printing press with confidence. Students will learn how to transfer an image that is printed in reverse, harness the power of positive and negative shapes, and create an individual style through mark making. This introduction to printmaking is your wellspring for infinite image making and inspiration. All levels welcome.
