MAY 2, 2020
Instructor: Heather Wilcoxon
This is a one-day intensive mono printing workshop. The instructor will demonstrate several different methods in this printing process. Demonstrations will include layering images, color use, and stenciling. It’s a fun and intensive image-making day. You will be surprised how many prints you can complete in one day. This class is also perfect for practicing painters. We will be using Aqua Water-based inks, brayers and brushes for non-toxic creativity and easy clean up.
Students are responsible for purchasing 5 sheets of printing paper (BFK Reeves, 22” x 30” at blick.com.)
The deadline for enrolling in this class is Wed Apr 29. The class may be cancelled if we do not reach minimum enrollment by this time.
$20 materials fee due to the instructor at the beginning of class.
