Relief presentation

I teach a Print Basics class at Chicago Printmakers Collaborative on Tuesday nights. It is a very full class but somehow everyone manages to make it despite the snow and subzero temps… we have a lot of fun! and snacks! :D

Anyway, this week everyone rocked it! I have to post about it. Here is a photo and video of Casey Engel, my badass TA, showing off some of her relief prints and blocks. Afterwards we got the carving and printing demos… I will be posting some of the prints next week.

Gain basic screenprinting skills for printing onto paper. This class teaches a wide range of skills, including working from basic handmade stencils to using photo emulsion, mixing ink, and creating an edition of clean, sharp, prints. By the end of the class, students will choose an independent project that could be anything from a set of greeting cards to a gig poster, fine-art print, or components for a zine. Students will need to supply all paper for independent projects. All other supplies will be provided.
