Learn the basics of printmaking in a low-tech, experimental format. Students will produce one-of-a-kind images by ink transfer, bridging the gap between drawing, painting, and printmaking. Materials will include common household packaging, such as plastic bags, cereal boxes, Styrofoam trays, sticks, office paper and ballpoint pens. This is a great introduction for anyone looking to get into printmaking without needing all the specialty tools used in traditional printmaking techniques.
Class fee: $100 ($90 for Catamount Arts members and high school students,) materials included.
Please refer to our website for any current COVID-19 related restrictions.
Registration deadline: September 27
Parents of high school students under age 18: please complete an Enrollment Form.
