Have you ever wanted to memorialize an old photo of your family members, or experiment with images from magazines or your own drawings? Spend the day in a unique exploration of monoprinting called Xerox photo transfer. In the morning, we’ll use our toner-based photocopies as our plate, plus water-soluble ink and the pressure of the printing press to print one of a kind art pieces. After a lunch break, we will try another technique of image transfer possibly using nail polish remover, matte medium, or packing tape. Students can expect to take home 5-8 finished prints. Please view the materials list to learn what to bring to class
This class is suitable for beginners as well as experienced printmakers. Participants receive a free day pass to Printmaking Open Studio so they may continue using the printing press to create image transfers
Bring a bag lunch and water bottle. Face masks are required to be worn inside the building at all times.
