This direct and versatile printing process is one of the oldest methods of printing. This course is designed for beginners as well as accomplished printmakers. Using gouges, students learn or improve cutting skills, create personal images and experiment with various types of wood and interesting papers. Prints are hand pulled by traditional rubbing methods or manual presses. Both black and white and color printing are explored. A $40 lab fee is payable to the instructor.
The Art League, through association with Discover Graphics Atelier, Inc., offers a wide range of printmaking classes. Discover Graphics is a fully equipped printmaking studio with two etching and two lithographic presses and all the necessary equipment for quality printmaking. Experienced printmakers may apply to be affiliated artists and pay a monthly fee to cover basic supplies and equipment during open studio hours. For information call 703-549-1381 or contact us at www.discovergraphics.org.
Supplies: Most supplies are available in the classroom. Other supplies are available in the Art League Store and will be discussed by the instructor at the first class.
