Contemporary Printmaking: Intro-inter: Mon, 6:30 - 9:30
Contemporary printmaking is a class for all levels of expertise. The main goal is to learn the fundaments of printmaking, from technique to appreciation in an open and welcoming environment. The class works as an open studio allowing the students to work in their own pace and allowing me to work one on one. The techniques to be explored are Relief printmaking, (woodcuts and linocuts), drypoint and introduction to etching and aquatint, and for more advanced students, intro to lithography.

This class is great for beginners in printmaking as well as experienced printmaking artists with non-typical ideas or people interested in pop art.
The idea of the class is to integrate printmaking techniques and qualities in your personal work. Unlike other print classes, this course is more focused on the aesthetic and visual possibilities of printmaking, and not the “hard rules”. This class is not about what you can't do but is about all the different approaches of printmaking techniques.

Register When was the last time you drew? Yes, probably when you were in elementary school. Since then the fear of drawing became bigger and bigger. This course will give you the chance to explore this beautiful creative side of you. In a relaxed atmosphere we will go over some basic notions like: proportions, composition, shape, volume, lighting, line, values and, very important, expression!!

We will draw everyday objects, human figure and spatial sketching, copying from real life and from photographs.
Come and join us to discover a new to way to see the world.
