Handmade Cards Using Printmaking Techniques with Ann Cheeks

The Artful Gift Series: Printmaking on Cards ANN CHEEKS Thursday, November 21 | 5:30 – 8:00pm | $50 + $10 materials (FOR TEENS & ADULTS) Register for this class only Spend an afternoon exploring several methods of printmaking while creating unique, handmade cards for personal greetings or for holiday gifts. Students will learn linocut techniques for generating representational images by carving into E-Z-Cut printing blocks with linoleum cutters and printing with water-soluble inks. Monoprint techniques will also be taught for creating looser, more abstract images. Other printmaking methods will be explored as time allows. All students should come away with no fewer than five cards from each printmaking technique, and the skills to create more on their own with a few low-cost tools. (Linocut designs can be taken home and used again and again to create additional cards or other artwork.) This class is part of our Artful Gift Series: Create unique gifts with a personal touch that family and friends will cherish.
