Exploring Printmaking with Andrew Jagniecki

Saturday 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.

April 18

Ages 14-Adult

If you have never explored the art of printmaking then this is the perfect opportunity. Andrew’s focus as a printmaker is capturing scenes from the natural environment. Join him in learning about the art of linoleum printmaking. In this class students will learn to compose a strong design, transfer the image to linoleum, use carving tools, and then apply ink to create a series of reduction prints that could be framed or become unique greeting cards. Printmaking is an exciting art form that has broad appeal. Pick up a design guide sheet at the NCCA-Artsplace in preparation for the class. Bring a lunch.
