INK.jpg

In this one-day workshop you can discover the beauty of the artist hand-pulled print. With an emphais on scale, we will explore the large and small format print.

Working with both additive and subtractive process, students will apply ink to Plexiglas plates and transfer them to paper using the Conrad French American printing press. We will develop imagery from photos, drawings, or organic source material to create either a series of small artworks or large format prints that will leave you smiling and high fiving the artist within you. For beginners and advanced printmakers. $125

Price includes ink and most materials. Additional paper available to purchase on site.  Bring a sack lunch to keep the creative juices flowing or order from the food truck nearby.
