Are you an artist without access to a press or a large studio space? Are you a painter looking to incorporate prints into your work? Maybe you’re just curious about doing printmaking at home? This hands-on workshop will introduce several printmaking tools & techniques that you can use as easily in your apartment as you can in the studio. In 3 hours, students will learn how to transfer non-archival images (including xeroxes of drawings, text, or magazine cut outs) into professional, lasting pieces of artwork. This particular class will focus on Xerox Gum and Acrylic Transfers. Students will be able to experiment with their technique to produce bold, graphic impressions, as well as delicate, translucent results on paper, fabric, wood, and a variety of diverse materials. Previous knowledge of printmaking is not required! Students with all levels of experience are welcome! Join us!
Price of class includes a materials fee of $15
Note for Participating Students: If you have images that you would like to experiment with during class, we encourage you to bring them! You may bring B&W photocopies in addition to laser prints or magazine/newspaper cutouts. Believe it or not, photocopies from old Xerox machines work best! If you plan on transferring text, you will need a reverse copy of your image. The use of materials during the workshop is included in the class fee, however, take-home supply kits are available for advance purchase upon request.
NOTE: Most of the students sign up through our website but we reserve 4 spots for Skillshare students
