Introduction to Printmaking
6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
This season we offer 2 chances to take Intro to Printmaking! This class is your opportunity to learn multiple print processes from RBPMW's very own Director/Master Printer, Phil Sanders, and Workshop Manager, Justin Sanz! This 4 week course will cover a different technique each week, including: Watercolor Monotype, Relief Printing, Dry-point, and Pronto Plate Lithography. It is an ideal class for that person who has always been interested in printmaking but unsure of what process would be best for their work. It is a great refresher from the class you took in college or at a local printshop too. All skill levels are welcome.
