What you'll learn in this printing class:

At the end of this class, the students will learn the basics of hand printing.

Get creative while learning the basics of three unique printmaking processes: screenprinting, relief, and monoprinting. Fundamental techniques will be covered, including carving and printing linoleum blocks, exposing images to screens, printing with oil and water-based inks, and color mixing. Prints will be created both by hand and with a press.

We will also explore mashing up these different techniques to create wonderfully textured, layered images. Open to all, this is a great course for anyone interested in making beautiful prints by hand.

Some basic supplies will be required, but much of what you need will be provided by CPC.

Note: Teens ages 15-17 may take the class either with a parent or with CPC permission.
