Don your aprons, flex your fingers, and join us to learn the fascinating art of printmaking with a printmaking press. Over three mornings, students will create watercolor monotypes, drypoint-type prints and a final relief printing project. We will visit the Print Study Center at Hallie Ford Museum of Art and finish off with a mini show of all our work. This is a workshop you won't want to miss. Students should bring an apron or a large old shirt or T-shirt to wear over their clothes.
