Beginning Printmaking with a Press for Kids and Teens (8 Weeks)

May 2, 2024 Weekly until June 6, 2024 4:30 PM - 6:30 PM
Washington Printmakers Gallery (1675 Wisconsin Ave NW)

Printmaking is magic! Well, kind of – sometimes it can feel like magic when you have the ability to take your original drawings and designs and reproduce them in infinite variations! This course is designed as an entry point into the fun and versatile world of printmaking beyond what is typically offered in school curriculum. Pre-teen and teen students will gain familiarity and experience with methods of relief and intaglio printmaking and learn how to print on a press. Print mediums will include monotype, drypoint, collograph, linocut, and mixed media. In addition to technical skills, students will develop their design sensibilities about what types of compositions and mark making work best with each print medium. We will look at the work of historical and contemporary printmakers in each print medium we explore, and students will be supported in figuring out how to use each medium to best convey their own thematic interests.

This class will be held on Thursdays from April 11 through June 6.

10 to 15 year old *age exceptions with instructor permission*
