This course is designed to offer students an understanding of the technical and creative aspects of sculpture and mold making. In this course, we can bring anything you can imagine to life.

Series of sessions are designed to help students to find and develop your own style, to experiment with water-based media such as ink, gouache, watercolor crayons, chalk pastels and different resists. You will be encouraged to find subjects that interest you – and instructions will be given to help you reach your highest creative potential and feel satisfied with your accomplishments.

Lithography: Stone and Polyester Plate, Intro-inter, Tuesday, 1 - 4 pm, start date: 01/17/2023
Register Lithography is a planographic printmaking technique that does not depend on the relief of the printmaking block. Lithography captures the fresh, dynamic drawn mark. Stone lithography enables printmakers to print lines and tones drawn with a pencil, drawing stick and brushes; polyester plate lithography uses permanent marker to create the drawn image. With some computer savvy, artists can use their photographs to create and print images with polyester plates.
