Summer is a great time to try something different. I’m offering a NEW hand printing class this summer! If drawing is more your style, you might like my Beginner Drawing with Pastels class. All classes to be held at my home studio on the bluff. Take in the view and get creative with me!

NEW! Hand Printing Techniques

A fun way to learn various hand-printing techniques to inspire your creativity!

Saturday, July 16, 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
Saturday, July 23, 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

Demonstration of various techniques using oil-based printing ink:

  • Nature printing from real objects — a very old form of printing.
  • Collagraphs — a print taken from a block with affixed materials that form a relief surface with a variety of textures.
  • Stencils — make your own and print with it.
  • Monotype — a unique print made on a flat surface onto which painterly marks are made.

$75 per person, all materials provided.

Note: Class dates are flexible if you prefer a Sunday or even a weekday, minimum of two people.

Space is available for a total of four people per class so you will receive lots of individual instruction. 

Please send in your payment in order to reserve your place. I do not have a sophisticated method of payment (I’m old school here!), so mailing a check to the address below would be appreciated. Money can be refunded, of course, in case of sickness or a family emergency.

Once I receive your reservation I will send you a more detailed description of the class agenda and driving directions to my home studio.

I’m looking forward to making art with you!
