Who should take this class?
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.   

What you will learn
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.

What to Bring?
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.  

Prerequisites
Previous knowledge of printmaking is not required!  Students with all levels of experience are welcome.
