APPLIED PRESSURE: PRINTMAKING A PRESS-ONLINE COURSE
JUNE 9, 16, 23 11AM - 12 PM CENTRAL

CLASS COST FOR THREE SESSIONS $125



 
Explore printmaking through a mixed media approach that combines various technical processes to achieve multi-layered prints. Processes are presented in a straightforward approach that is easy to grasp allowing you to start making images right away.
Demonstrations will cover carborundum printing, drypoint, and monoprint. The class will cover printing single color images, multicolored work, and combining mixed media drawing with print processes. If you do not have an etching press you can use an AKUA PIN PRESS.
And if you are a painter, sculptor, photographer, or printmaker, these ideas about layering will inform your work. 
Akua Intaglio ink will be used during the class, but you may also use oil-based inks for the class. 
This is a live Zoom meeting and is recorded. A private Facebook group is created for the class where the recording will be posted and students may ask questions and post work. 11am – 12 noon Central on Tuesdays June 9, 16, 23    $125
