Beginning Printmaking with a Print Press for Pre-Teens and Teens with Etai Rogers-Fett

February 22, 2024 Weekly until March 28, 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.

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


Dates: 1/4, 1/11, 1/18, 2/8, 2/15, 2/22, 2/29, 3/7, 3/14, 3/21, 3/28 [NO CLASS 1/25 and 2/1]

At the end of the class, an exhibit with the students’ work will be held at the Georgetown Library.
