Alternative Printmaking Processes for Middle School Students

Register Now

Ditch the press! Printmaking has long been a tool to get your voice out there, from Goya to graffiti artists. We will explore DIY methods of printmaking using materials and objects you can find in your home. Learn woodcut, linocut, monotype, screen printing, and photo transfer processes to produce single prints as well as multiples (i.e posters) of vivid abstract and painterly compositions. Students will gain a basic understanding of printmaking processes without the need for any major equipment.

All courses culminate in a pop-up show at Embark Gallery on Friday, June 23rd.
