Beginning and continuing printmaking students will learn about the print studio's tools, equipment, supplies, and practices during five Monday evening sessions. 

Students will learn how to use inks and low-toxicity clean-up methods while practicing the three primary forms of printmaking: monotype, intaglio, and relief. There will be integrated work time to prepare you for our studio skills competency evaluation. The evaluation checklist will be reviewed on the last day of class, and completion can qualify BARN members for fob access to the studio.  This is a comprehensive course at a great price: it works out to be about $16/hr for 20 hours of instruction.

This course is for:

  • Those seeking the skills needed for working independently in our print studio: during monitored open studio for non-members, and with free fob access for members.
  • Beginners or continuing students desiring a refresher on skills training, and those wanting to learn and practice monotype, intaglio, and relief printing methods
  • Those wishing take intermediate and advanced classes that will build on what is learned in this course

The ability to express your creative vision comes with knowledge, practice, and mastery of beginning skills. We see it as a mutual investment by you and our print instructors with the hope that you will become a long-term part of our community, able to continue with courses or work confidently on your own time here at BARN or elsewhere.
